Alright folks, buckle up, we've got a short but bumpy ride on the "how long should you test drive a car?" lane. In the wild world of car buying, it's not a quick spin around the block anymore, oh no. Ideally, you'd want to take that beauty on wheels for at least 30 minutes to an hour spin, to really get to know her quirks and perks. And if you're feeling extra adventurous, try to squeeze in driving during different times of the day. Remember, a car isn't just a ride, it's a partner-in-crime, so make sure it's the Robin to your Batman, the Watson to your Holmes, before you seal the deal!
