There comes a time when you finish high school and realize its time to buy a car.  Buy a car is a exciting experience especially if its your first.  When entering college the smartest thing to do is purchase used because it is much cheaper then buying a new vehicle.  When looking for a used car it is best to set your eye on one that is 2-3 years old.  Cars that are usually 2-3 years older take a huge depreciation hit and it is possible to find them with low miles.  Once you decide on the vehicle that you want the next step is paying for it.  Most young adults have very little credit or no credit at all.  The best thing to do in that case is purchase using cash, that will also save you from paying the unnecessary interest rates.  Before you drive home with your new vehicle don't forget to have someone with experience check out the vehicle to make sure that theres nothing wrong with it.

Good luck and buy smart!
