Shiny cars on the lot, a salesman, and finance department. Yep, I’m talking about car buying today. Finding the perfect car can be stressful, especially when it’s your first time. If you’re just starting to build credit, you will most likely need to buy something more practical than perfect. Once your credit is more established, you can consider upgrading to your dream car.
Finding the Perfect Car for You
This is a partnered post with Capital One. All opinions are my own.
Now married and with 1 child and another on the way, my husband convinced me that we needed a mini van. I fought it. I didn’t want it. “We need more space,” he said. Yes, when your family expands, upgrading your vehicle is necessary. However, the only model we could afford at the time was the base model. No upgrades, nada. It was not what I envisioned for myself, however I stuck it out, paying it off as quickly as I could. Thankfully with an extremely low interest rate I was able to pay off the “soccer mom” vehicle in no time.
I couldn’t wait to go car shopping again! This time – I was prepared with a checklist of must-haves. Our credit was in good shape. It was time for that vehicle upgrade.
Finding the Perfect Car
I found it! It was a pre-owned vehicle (only 2 years old) and had every bell and whistle the vehicle offered. A sunroof, navigation, heated and cooled leather seats, back-up camera, bluetooth connected, great stereo, and tons of safety features. The warranty was still in tact, and it was a beauty!
