Step 7. Set Up a Test-Drive

Now that you've found a car that seems like it might be a good fit for you, call or e-mail the dealership's Internet department to schedule a day and time for a test-drive. It's great to deal with Internet salespeople because they cater to informed buyers, and they're very familiar with Price Promise. By making a test-drive appointment, you ensure that the car will be waiting for you when you arrive.
