What do You Want in a Car?
There are so many things to consider when you first start looking for a vehicle, including seating availability, cargo capacity, Bluetooth® capability, and so much more. Are you looking for something that can tow large toys, such as boats or trailers? Are you looking for a fun vehicle that you can take off-road every once in a while? Will you be using children’s car seats? Do you have a long daily commute to work?
Setting Up a Budget
The financial part of car buying is what most people would consider the worst part. Unless you are paying for your new car with cash, you will need a financial plan. You also have to consider additional costs such as insurance, taxes, and gas! Take a look at our payment calculator to get an idea of what kind of payment you will be making monthly for your new car.

Buying or Leasing
There are pros and cons to both buying and leasing. With buying, you have the flexibility to sell your car whenever you want. With leasing, you are under a signed contract to drive it for a certain amount of time. With buying, you can modify the car however you choose with stickers, new tires, rims, and more. With leasing, you have to keep the vehicle in tip-top shape for its return to the dealership. With buying, you have to pay for any damages or repairs on your vehicle on your own. When you lease, most repairs are covered under warranty.
