In my research, I've found that some car dealerships may charge for test drives to cover the costs associated with depreciation, wear and tear, and insurance. It's also a tactic to weed out individuals who aren't serious about buying and are just there for a joyride. However, it's worth noting that this practice isn't widespread and most dealerships still offer free test drives. Always check with the dealership beforehand to avoid unexpected charges. It's a controversial approach, but it's an interesting insight into how businesses are adapting to changing market conditions.
