Choosing a vehicle

Would you like a new car or a used car? A new car is dependable and will typically have a great warranty, however they are usually more expensive. A used car may have a lower price tag, but you may need to budget for repairs.

A good rule of thumb is to limit your vehicle budget to 15% of your monthly income. This can be one way to avoid overspending on your new ride. The true cost of a vehicle is more than just the price for the car. It also includes insurance, registration, and maintenance.

Financing a vehicle makes car ownership possible. Your credit score has a large impact on the rates you're offered for your new loan. For great rates, ask for Veridian financing at the dealership, or get pre-approved before you shop.
