Set Your Budget
Determining how much you can spend on a pre-owned vehicle is a great place to start your adventure. To figure this out, you’ll need to look at your income—what comes in and what goes out.
Start by taking your monthly income after taxes and comparing it with your bills and expenses. This includes everything from rent or mortgage to utility and power bills, your internet, and everything in between.
What’s left over will give you a good idea of how much you can put into a used car. Make sure you incorporate other transportation expenses like gas, maintenance, and insurance.
Do Some Research
Almost as important as setting a budget (and sticking to it) is determining what type of model you need. Not sure? Hit the books and discover what vehicles will suit your needs the most. Start by referring to this handy list:
- Sedans—Perfect for first-time drivers, city commuters, and couples.
- SUVs—Great for growing families, adventurers, and off-roading.
- Minivans—Ideal for large families and groups.
- Trucks—Best for towing, the worksite, and transporting large items.
