Individual dealerships are also advertising the offer (e.g here).

The Fine Print

  • Participants must have a valid US driver’s license and comprehensive auto insurance, be 25 years or older and sign a test-drive waiver to participate.
  • Valid at participating dealerships; one per customer.
  • Offer is non-transferrable and valid for the scheduled date and time only. D

  • Program ends 12/31/17.
  • The OmniCard Visa Prepaid Card is issued by MetaBank®, Member FDIC, pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc.

Our Verdict

They have offered a similar deal in previous years and there is no credit check or anything like that. It seems dealers have a lot more discretion than with other test drive offers, so no guarantee they will actually offer it to you. You can also request to have the car for two days instead of one (again at the discretion of the dealer). As always please share your experiences in the comments.

Very curious about the “Test Drive not required in MD”…

I was just thinking the exact same thing!

Nothing advertised on the websites of the 3 dealers near me.

Has anyone called the dealership? The promo supposedly ended 12/31/2016

I just called my dealer. He was unaware of any promotion, but he said that we will look into it for me and call me back. We’ll see, probably just blowing smoke up my ass.

My local dealership is not listed when I click on my state from this page:

https://securemg.lincoln.com/datenight/

Does that mean I’m SOL since my dealer is not participating?

I would think you are correct; if not listed, your dealer is not participating.

=> DOC, I think JT has the best link for your article.

Is there a limit to the daily miles allowed during the 24/48 test drive?

Update – I messaged my local dealership to ask about the promo and they confirmed it is available and that they do offer the $100 gift card. They said they’d have a specialist call me to schedule my pick up.

Scheduled for a weekend, pickup Friday morning and return Monday night, so more like 80 hours instead of 48. I asked if there is a mileage restriction and he said no, don’t drive it cross country or anything but if you want to drive around the state that is fine.

whats your location?

One local dealer did not participate.

Second local dealer had the following parameters:
– An expiring Ford or Lincoln lease in the next 6 months
or
– Own a luxury car newer than 2012.

Unfortunately my 10+ year old Honda Accord did not make the grade. Honda Accord probably has a big negative correlation with the purchase of a Lincoln.

Is comprehensive auto coverage enforced? I drive cash-only cars with liability coverage only.

Dealer didn’t specify, just said bring proof of insurance, driver’s license, and credit card (no charge just so they have it in case you cause damages)

CT – Got the dealership listed on the datenight site to confirm they have the offer.

Do these long test drives typically require you to leave your car there? My SO and I only have one car–I wonder if this could work as a solution when we need a second car for a day?

Got this from the dealership near me for the offer: “We’ll even provide you dinner for two (up to $100) at one of the restaurants listed below.” I am wondering if I just ask for $100 gift card instead, will they go for it? Will try

Just tried the Pacifico Marple Dealership in Broomall PA, they said they have backed out the promotion and that a lot of dealerships are.

I picked up a sweet Lincoln Continental today. I got the $100 gift card when I picked it up, which I noted is a Five Back when I registered it.
