Take Your iPad Along To Get Meaningful, Accurate and Productive Car Test Drive Data

The Auto Channel's free "My Test Drives" app gives serious car shoppers the help they need to make test drive evaluations accurate, effective and meaningful.
"My Test Drives" leads car researchers through a one two three step method to record their clear and accurate evaluation of each of 30 factors of their test driven vehicle through an easy to use template that allows for “real time” during the drive rating and later ranking and comparison of every facet of every vehicle they are testing.
The Auto Channel has always preached to our audience that in order to become a smart and happy car buyer, before you even consider a vehicle for purchase you must test and compare every vehicle on your short consideration list…. Every one!
But before the "My Test Drives" app, evaluations of even a single test drive and most definitely test drives of multiple vehicles became just a jumble of thoughts and divergent feelings rendering ineffective the time invested and the weight given to each test drive.
And even more problematical, any useful discovery or observation made during the test drive disappeared in the opaque jumble of foggy “now which car was that?” memories, scattered thoughts and misremembering’s, just minutes after every test drive, thereby making the test drives useless to determine which was or is the right vehicle to buy, and increasing the potential long term tragedy of buying the wrong vehicle.
Before "My Test Drives" when it came time for a buyer (test driver) to conduct their post-test drive analysis and to evaluate and rank their thoughts concerning the hundreds of facts and feelings they gathered during their test drives... no matter how smart or clever the driver, no matter how many notes they made, they couldn't accurately save all of the data in a form that was coherent and interactively manageable.
This cacophony of fleeting and amorphous thoughts is why The Auto Channel’s professional auto reviewers have developed methods to remember exactly how each element of the car rates while they are testing...and now you can too.
Using "My Test Drives" on an iPad or Smart Phone demands that test drivers observe and rate over 30 exterior and interior features, comfort levels, performance ratings, and qualitative feelings, rated, ranked and recorded during each test drive,
Now after the test drive and your recording the results of your test drives, the real and meaningful research begins.
Every "My Test Drives" observation and recorded comment will be accessible on your iPad or IPhone or PC, so along with each of your test drive rankings and comments are links to The Auto Channel's auto buyers tools which will allow you to easily research, compare and rank every vehicle's complete specs, prices and reviews (1993-2013 models) from our auto journalists, no more bouncing to multiple web sites to get the needed facts, because they will be all right there on The Auto Channel helping you become a smarter car or truck buyer.
