Affordable Cars in St. Charles

March 3, 2016  

Before beginning a search for a pre-owned vehicle and the financing with which to secure it, there are several points of consideration that must be addressed. There are literally thousands of affordable cars in St. Charles to choose from so careful planning must be undertaken.

Affordable Cars in St. Charles

  • Evaluate your income and expenses to determine your auto-buying budget. Remember that you do not have to spend ALL of the funds you have available to get a quality ride.
    • Spending 10-15% of your income will get you simple transportation without trendy “bells and whistles.”
    • A compromise of 20-25% offers vehicle affordability and reliability and many of the extras you may be seeking.
    • If the selection of a used car is ultra-important to you, plan to spend 25% or more of your income to get transportation that meets all of your requirements.
  • As this expense is likely to be one of the largest you will undertake, aside from buying a home, be sure that you make the most informed decision possible. Be sure that a trusted mechanic closely inspects your chosen auto before you sign for your purchase.
  • Know the specific type of vehicle you want and the amenities that you simply cannot live without, whether you are looking for pre-owned Ford cars for sale or another make.

Affordable cars in St. Charles are relative to your budget and what you can realistically afford. For guidance in vehicle selection and all aspects of financing for all types of circumstances, call the pros at 5 Star Auto Plaza today at (636)940-7600.
