Discover your style at Thame Cars test drive weekend | Ford Focus & Vauxhall Astra | 4th- 5th March 2017

Moving our business premises last year was an enormous undertaking.

If you’ve ever moved house you’ll know the challenge of juggling all the logistics and organising the different moving parts.

What it made me think though, was how impulsively we make the house buying decision; probably the biggest financial investments we’ll make in our lives!

I know from my own experience, we have a brief look around a place, like what we see, go back for another look around, then make an offer.

One home buyers report later, and you’re the proud owner of a new house.

I’ve spent more time buying a new suit than I have a house.

And when we’re talking about major purchases, cars are pretty high up on the list as well.

I know friends who have literally bought a car ‘sold as seen’, and been happy as Larry.

Personally, I see buying a car more like purchasing a new suit than a new house.

It’s good to try it on, see how it fits, and consider all the practicalities as well as the emotional how-does-it-make-me-feel stuff.

Given what I do for a living, I’m in the fortunate position where I can turn this into a reality for our customers.

The idea of the test drive isn’t anything new, but we try our hardest to match the experience with your real life needs.

So if you do a lot of motorway miles, we’ll go for a spin up the M40.

If you drive more in town & built up areas, we’ll head over to Aylesbury to see how it feels in that environment.

We recommend our customers block out a full hour so we don’t feel rushed; the last thing we want when making an important decision.

This weekend at Thame Cars we’re running a special Test Drive Event.

Putting the spotlight on two of our most popular cars: the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra.

Which means that you can come along over the weekend and drive one or both of these cars, and make a direct comparison between the two.

If you want to join us and experience these wonderful vehicles, you just need to drop Preety an email at with your contact number and roughly what time and day would be best for you, and she’ll get back to book you in.

There’s no obligation to buy anything on the day, but we are offering £200 off any car if you do decide that one of them is the perfect fit.

Happy driving.
