Buying a Car
Your car does not measure your success or your capabilities, but it can limit them. Many students purchase more car than they can afford, and it becomes a 3000 lb. burden that continually drains their limited resources.
When deciding which type of car to purchase, consider how you will use the car. Will you be commuting? Hauling equipment? Traveling with family or friends? Consider how many miles you are going to drive per year. These factors can affect the cost of gas and maintenance for your vehicle. Most students require a safe and reliable car to transport them to school, work and the occasional visit home. The big challenge rests in finding the most economical form of transportation that meets your needs.
