Protect What You Value

Before buying a car, make sure you know how much you’ll pay to insure it. Compare policies and don’t skimp with bare-bones coverage. And make sure to protect your investment by keeping up with service and maintenance schedules. You may want to consider a vehicle protection plan for added peace of mind.

Manage Your Debt

Making timely payments on a car loan is an easy way to build a good credit rating. Aim for a purchase price that will keep your monthly car payment to no greater than 8 to 10 percent of your monthly income.
