What Do You Need?

The journey to finding your perfect next vehicle begins with a simple question. What do you need? You can explore the features and design choices that you like and want later, but necessity comes first.

To help answer this question, think about the primary use of the vehicle. Is it a commuter for work? Are you a contractor who needs to haul supplies around all the time? Do you need it for towing things? Taking the kids to school and extracurriculars?

There are a lot of potential answers to this question, but really hone in on what you need the car to do well. That alone will narrow your options and help you find a perfect car more than anything else.

What Do You Want?

Now that you’ve determined the essentials that you need from your new vehicle, you can focus on wants. What are the most important features to you? What doesn’t matter as much?

You can even make a list of features prioritizing the things you care about the most. Assuming your car shopping is on a budget (like the rest of us), this list will help you see where you can take some cuts to save money.

In fact, we should probably talk about money for a bit.

Check Your Budget

If you ask a bunch of gurus how to find the best used car, they’re usually going to start here. Figure out your budget. Then, figure out the rest.

That’s not exactly bad advice, but really, you need what you need, whether it’s expensive or not.

So, figure out what you need. Determine what niceties really matter to you.

Then, dissect your budget. You can’t really make an informed decision until you know what you can realistically afford, and it’s perfectly ok that such a number is different for everyone.

When you figure out your budget, remember two things. You need a plan for a down payment and for your monthly payments (and don’t forget insurance). There are a lot of online calculators that can help you with this, so feel free to take advantage.
