Let's be smart here, you just graduated college and those student loans will be kicking in shortly. So, when you're considering making your first brand-new car purchase, make sure that you don't bite off more than you can chew. First, consider the monthly payments that you have already, now that you're an adult (rent, loans, groceries, bills) and make sure that you are looking for cars that are within your current budget. When it comes to purchasing a new car, there are two primary financing options: buying or leasing. While both options have their pros and cons, it's really a personal financing decision. Make sure that you discuss and understand all of your financing options with the car dealer(s). For more information, visit the Finance section of Vehix.com.
