How to Test Drive a Car

Here at Clonskeagh Motors, we understand that buying a new or used vehicle can be daunting. We have a few simple tricks to look out for when you go to test drive a car.


Find out what car suits your lifestyle. Do you need a small city car, family car, SUV or do you need a performance car like the incredible Honda Civic Type R. We have new or used cars to suit everybody's needs.


Make sure to take the car you are interested in on a long test drive. If possible, take it on a familiar route, as well as motorways etc. Test your parking or even reversing.


How does it drive? Do you like the transmission? Would you prefer an automatic? Is the steering heavy? or is it too light. Make sure your comfortable driving.


Try out the sat nav, the sound system, the Bluetooth connectivity – anything you can think of. If you do buy the car in question, you’re going to rely on these features a lot. So take your time. It is also important to get a quick demo from one of our staff.


Finally review the price, review the safety features, review features, review add-ons. Makes sure you know exactly what you are getting.

Clonskeagh Motors offers a range of new and used Honda vehicles as well as a range of other makes and models used vehicles.
