Buying a new car is a big step. Choosing the right car can be difficult, and it's even more complicated when you're thinking about interest rates, monthly payments, colour choices and options. You also need to know that you are making the right decision as to the car that you choose to buy and how much you spend on it.
The average car buyer will go through a ton of research and prep before sealing the deal on a new vehicle.
