Steps to Your First Purchase

Step 1: Determine your needs and wants
Buying a vehicle is a serious commitment. It is important that your vehicle meets all your functional needs but it also needs to be fun and exciting to drive. Establish a list of your needs and wants to help guide your purchase decision in the right direction. Be sure to consider:

Seating & Cargo Capacity
  • How many people - and how much stuff - needs to fit into your vehicle?
  • Do you need to tow anything?
  • Which safety features are a "must have"?
Cost of Ownership
  • What are your fuel mileage needs? How much will insurance be?
Performance & Handling
  • Do you need/want an upgraded engine?
Comfort & Convenience
  • Do you want leather seats, an upgraded stereo or navigation system?
  • What other luxury features are important to you?

Step 2: Decide on a budget
Once you've decided what you're looking for, it's time to take a look at your finances to see how you can make this relationship happen.
Try to calculate what your monthly payments might be (you may be surprised at the vehicle you'll be able to afford). Besides the everyday costs of a vehicle - such as insurance and fuel consumption - make sure to figure in regularly scheduled maintenance. Our Payment Estimator can also help you determine how much you can afford.
