Abarth Test Drive Wanted

Post by PaulB » Thu Apr 19, 2012 2:32 pm

I'm in Evansville, IN and planning a weekend getaway to Indy so I can check out the Abarth at the Fashion Mall Dealer in Indy tomorrow.
However, I don't think that they'll let me drive it : (
Are there any Abarth Flusters out there (within 300 Miles) who would let me and my wife take one for a spin?

Why won't a dealer let someone test drive a car?

This seems silly to me as well...
I think the only ones they have on the lot are already are spoken for.
They hold em for 30 days to show, then release to the customer and replace with another.

Most of the larger volume dealers appears to have cars to test drive. I would not doubt that some dealers are not doing this due to the high demand. Evidently demand is strong enough to sell all available cars at the moment.
