Here are some questions we recommend you ask yourself:

  • What kind of car will meet my needs?
  • How many miles per month will I be driving?
  • How long do I plan to own this vehicle?

Third, how do you choose the right brand for your needs?

You want a car that offers reliability and performance at the right price for your budget. It was once a symbol of patriotism to Buy American, and it still is for new car buyers. Used car buyers tend to be more practical favoring value over brand.

Buying American means something different in 2014, since established American brands like Ford and Chevrolet are often just as good for American jobs as Honda and Toyota.
