How do you buy a car on a tight budget?

When you're shopping for used cars in Mishawaka with a limited budget, it's easy to become frustrated. Finding used cars near you can be discouraging, especially for customers with limited resources. If you can't spend a fortune on your next vehicle, RB Car Company is the ideal used car dealership near you. We provide a wonderful variety of used cars for sale near you, with options suitable for every price range. Before you rush over to the RB Car Company showroom, let's review some practical tips for buying a used car on a budget. With our help, getting into a safe and affordable used car will be an enjoyable experience!

 

What is the 1/10 rule for car buying?

The 1/10 rule is a common piece of financial advice that suggests your total auto budget shouldn't exceed 10% of your income. For example, if you earn $50,000 annually, you should not spend more than $5,000 a year on your used car in Mishawaka. Many customers find the 1/10 rule to be a helpful guideline, but your mileage may vary. If you need a used pickup truck for sale to use as a work vehicle, it may be worthwhile to spend more than 10% of your income. On the other hand, if you don't drive very often, you may wish to spend under 10% on a used car near you. No matter how much you're willing and able to spend, you'll find many dependable options at RB Car Company. From used SUVs for sale to minivans and trucks, there are outstanding choices for every customer. 

 

How should a beginner buy a car?

While RB Car Company offers affordable used cars near you, buying a vehicle is still a serious expense. It's critical to prepare carefully before pulling the trigger on any used car in Mishawaka. Make sure to do the following before you visit our used car dealership near you. 

  1. Set a reasonable budget. Decide on how you'd like to pay for your next used SUV for sale - if you're paying cash, your budget will be easy to understand! If you plan to finance a car at RB Car Company, we suggest that you apply for your loan before you begin shopping. 
  2. Determine your driving needs. Consider your usage habits, passengers, cargo requirements, and any other important factors. Whether you're in the market for a used pickup truck for sale or a compact car, it's essential to identify your most important needs.
  3. Conduct some research into the best models for your body style of choice. However, don't get too hung up on a specific model - you might overlook a fantastic deal on a used car for sale near you!
  4. Test-drive your favorite options. The helpful team at RB Car Company will help you get behind the wheel of your top choices to select the ideal used car near you.
