Your Budget

This is possibly the most important thing to consider. Set a realistic budget factoring in your current finances. Remember you will have a monthly car payment, which will depend on the amount you put down. Insurance rates can go up, and you will also want to factor in maintenance costs.

Your Needs

Options are seemingly endless when you begin shopping for your first car. We recommend doing a lot of research into the type of vehicle you’re looking for. Determine if you want an SUV, car, or truck. Make a list of all your must-haves and determine what vehicles fit into your price range.

The Test Drive

You might like the look and everything the car offers based on the car’s online description but what if you don’t like the feel of the car? We recommend stopping by and test driving all vehicles of interest.
