Test Drive : Favourite section in car magazine

As long as many of car addicts love to read many kind of car magazines. We have to admit that there are tons of car magazines available in the market now and I am confident that all of them has a section called “Test Drive” or “Car Review” or something like that. However, as car magazine addicted person, I have read a lot of car magazines and find out that what elements that good test drive section should have so we can define what is the ideal information that we need from that section.

But first of all, may I emphasize that there are big different between car magazines, in terms of physical and all detail inside. Therefore, there are no standard conclusion apply to all magazines in order to judge whether they have good test drive section. However, it is your own judgement by using this guidelines.

What is “Test Drive” section It is a place where they have a person who called him/herself as a writer or expert in the area of car test drive to test one or more of car models. After they have tested that car models then they come to write how they feel about those cars as well as give some recommendations to people who may want to by a car, especially of the model that have just tested

What are ideal elements that good test drive section should have?

Author of the section In my opinion, this is the most important element that we have to focus on. The reputation of the author is something that we can rely on and this can guarantee that we will get concrete and reliable information. However, it is not just the reputation, it is also about experience of the author as well. I am talking about some of the author may be a specialist in only specific car type of model. For example, he might be expert for MPV cars meanwhile some other may be expert only in sport cars. So you have to see if which type of car that has been tested by which author. The author who expert in spot cars may not give accurate information if he has tested a MPV or SUV cars.

Features of the car that has been tested. This is also important to us if we are reading test drive section. From many years of experience reading a lot of car magazines, I have discovered that many of car magazines lack of information about the full features of a car that has been tested. It looks like only a car advertisement from car manufacturer, which only provide information about colour, model and prices. This is really wasted of my time to read this kind of test drive section. So you have to make sure that they have something for you to read, apart from the basic information from the advertisement.

Suggestion and recommendations This section is very important, apart from what I have mentioned above. Of course, writer should give something in return to readers such as opinion or suggestion about the car that has been tested so readers can get some ideas, especially if they are about to make decision to buy a car.

How Not to Sell Your Car -- The 7 Deadly Sins

Deadly Sin 1 -- Not doing research

This is the actual source of much of the difficulty with selling your own car. Research is the reason the car dealer has the advantage. He knows his business. The private seller usually has little to do with car prices until they want to sell their car. The main benefit of research is that you will know a realistic price that you can charge for your vehicle. This means that you will most likely sell it more quickly and easily. A dealer sets his price by charging whatever the market will bear. Proper research will allow you to quickly estimate the market for your vehicle in a private sale.

Deadly Sin 2 -- Listening to unfounded advice

This follows on a little bit from No. 1. There's often financial pressure at the time of selling a car - which leads others around the seller to give their opinions as to the price or the desperation to sell. It is often given with the best intentions. If someone is giving you advice as to the value of your car you shouldn't necessarily ignore it but it is best to do your own assessment. If you do your own quality research you will find that you are less likely to be concerned about doomsayers.

Deadly Sin 3 -- Not preparing your car for sale

It is amazing, but some people will try to sell a car with a full ashtray of cigarette butts. At the very minimum you should vacuum the car and give it a wash. If you really want to maximise your price putting some time into the presentation of the vehicle is essential. The best way to approach this is to imagine you are the buyer. See yourself viewing the car for the first time. What impression does it give you? Now make a list of things that you can inexpensively fix or handle and attend to them. Properly detailing your car is highly recommended.

Deadly Sin 4 -- Trying to hide known faults from a buyer

Well it's fairly clear that this is dishonest and should not be done. Some states actually have laws which hold you liable if it is found that you sold a car with known faults. A used car may have some faults. The best way to handle this situation is to know exactly what the fault is and how much it will cost to fix it. You can then reflect that in the price you ask for the vehicle. The principle is to repair only what will be paid back in the sale price.

Deadly Sin 5 -- Selling to a professional buyer

There are people that make their living buying cars at bargain prices. For this reason you should learn to recognize them. They will make you a very low offer. The best way to protect yourself is to do the research step thoroughly and be prepared to say no. They are basically trading off the fact that most people don't really know the market and are sometimes just desperate to sell.

Deadly Sin 6 -- Not doing your paperwork

You absolutely must complete all the DMV or vehicle authority paperwork to fully transfer the title. Otherwise you may receive parking tickets or other nasties from the other party.

Deadly Sin 7 -- Letting yourself be bullied by tyre-kickers

Many buyers will make a list of all the things they have found wrong with the car and then tell you the price that all this costs to repair. Don't assume that their figures are correct because they appear to be an expert. It is often the case that if they are truly an expert they know how to get the repair done themselves for a much cheaper price. You will find that two of these experts have two totally different ideas about the price. As you can see, it gets back to research again -- if you have priced your car correctly -- you won't be overly disturbed by tyre-kickers.
