Shopping for a New Car Does Not Have to be a Headache
***This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cars.com***
This winter really took a beating on our family car. Fortunately, we did not have any accidents but it seemed like every other week something else was wrong with the car. My husband and I finally sat down and decided that it was time for us to start shopping for a new to us family car.
Since we have had our vehicle for quite a few years now, we were not really sure where or how we should start shopping for our next vehicle. We knew that we did not want to drag the kids to 30 different car dealerships, just to deal with pushy sales people. After having several of our friends and family mention that we should start our research online, we decided to give it a shot.
We started with using an auto loan calculator to calculate auto payments over the life of the loan to see what we could afford. We really needed to make sure that we were staying inside our budget. The calculators are very easy to use, just enter your information to see how much your monthly payments could be. You can adjust length of loan, down payment and interest rate to see how those changes raise or lower your payments.
