It's policy for most car dealerships to allow potential customers to go on a test drive to see if they're vibing with the vehicle, and if it fits all of their needs.
Most of the time, these rides are fairly uneventful, a salesperson rides along and doles out intel on the car's features, and how it functions in daily use, and the customer gets a chance to see how they feel on the road.
However, as with any exchange between two unpredictable human beings, there are test-drives that get super weird, super fast.
People who work at car dealerships and rental places jumped on a Reddit thread to share the weirdest and most unforgettable test drives they've been on, and it's a miracle some of them lived to tell the tale.
Friend's story: a customer took a Mazda sedan for a test drive and midway pulled over and asked to swap with the salesman to experience the car from the passenger seat. Just as they were about to drive off again he says he feels sick and can't go on, and thanks for his time. Turns out he just wanted a lift into town.
