There’s nothing quite like the thrill that comes with owning your first car. But the promise of independence is often all that first-time car buyers think of. Before you start looking for your new car, it’s best to do a bit of research into the car financing options available to you so you know exactly what to looking for when weighing up car finance and rent to own deals.

Unless you’ve been saving for years, very few first-time car buyers can afford to buy a car for cash. Add to this the fact that you may be trying to get car finance with a bad credit history, and you’re likely to face difficulty in acquiring car financing in the first place due to high interest rates.

So, before you go looking for car finance deals, work out your budget. Make sure you’ve considered the following possible expenses, including:

  • Initial down payment
  • Monthly instalments
  • Petrol
  • Car insurance
  • Servicing and maintenance
  • Roadside assistance.

Most important of all, once you’ve found your car and made your decision, be sure to read the fine print!
