Time to Test Drive a New Subaru in Lakeland, FL? Let Cannon Subaru Make It a Memorable Experience

When it comes to whether to purchase or lease a new car, truck, or SUV, we at Cannon Subaru agree with you: no decision can be made on stock photos and customer reviews alone. After all, it's a matter of your needs, with a few preferences in the mix to be sure, and that means a behind-the-wheel experience that, inside and out, can be quite different from the hype -- even for the much better. But that doesn't mean it isn't best to come thoroughly researched and prepared, either. Take a few pointers pre-test drive from the Subaru aficionados here at our Lakeland, FL dealership, and you can show up ready for that test drive we're sure you'll remember.

First, do some due diligence with reputable research. and are thorough and well-regarded sources for vehicle information by year, make, model, and trim, containing both expert reviews and those by your fellow Subaru drivers as well as vehicle worth and value data. They even let you make side-by-side model comparisons, so making a list of and starting a file on your favorite new Subaru cars and SUVs is a matter of course.

Next, schedule yourself a test-drive appointment with us here at Cannon Subaru. This makes it easier to navigate and access what's otherwise our sizable inventory of new Subaru and used car models here in Lakeland. As well, doing so simplifies getting that long-sought vehicle ready for the road, whether it's on our 5212 S. Florida Ave. lot or in our showroom. We can have your model of choice ready or on the way when you arrive, and that's a big time saver. You can simply show up, meet with your personal salesperson for the grand tour, and soon after, hop right in and hit the road. If you're planning on exploring more than one model, whether it's a new Subaru SUV alongside a used truck, or another vehicle in our showcase, it's also a good idea to make several appointments back to back, if available. It'll help keep your experience fresh in your mind for a decision later.

Thirdly, be ready and sure to take a few notes on the ride. We're sure you'll be interested in the whole package and how it stacks up to your expectations and tastes. That means considering everything from exterior looks, vehicle size, ease of entry, and interior creature comforts for driver and passengers alike to visibility to your liking, technological amenities, cargo space, and more.
