Tips for Saving Money for Your New Car

Saving Money - Terry, MS

Like buying a new house, a car purchase is one of the most expensive finances you can make in your lifetime. Before you buy, you can better prepare yourself for your down payment by following a few tips for saving money for your new car.


Remember to budget. One of the easiest ways to save money for a new car is to monitor your monthly expenses and cut down on your spending. Cutting out one slightly expensive cost that isn’t necessary for your day-to-day life can benefit you in the long run. For instance, if you buy your lunch at work, consider packing your lunch for the next few months. That will save you a decent amount of money.


Get a good savings account. Find a savings account that offers you a solid interest rate that will earn you money as it sits. Contact your local bank to find out which account might be best for your needs.


Be patient. The longer you wait, the more money you will have to give for your down payment. Unless it’s absolutely necessary to purchase a car now, take your time and save as much money as possible.

Buying Versus Leasing at Skinners Chevrolet Buick GMC

Buy or Lease GMC Sierra

When you’re looking for your next car, you have a couple of financing options: buying and leasing. There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to buying versus leasing. This short guide helps you understand which option at Skinners Chevrolet Buick GMC is the better fit for your budget.



If you are looking to find a vehicle that you can keep for as long as possible, buying is the way to go. This option requires you to obtain a loan, on which you will make monthly payments until you pay off the car. When you buy a car, you have no limitations to mileage, customization, or the length of ownership.



When you lease a car, you pay monthly to borrow the car from the dealership for an approved length of time. Most lease periods last from two to three years, and when the time is up, you simply return the car to the dealership. Because of this simple, straight-forward formula, a lease is a great option for someone who prefers getting something new every two or three years. Leasing is also appealing because it is more affordable month to month. Lease agreements have low or zero-down payments with lower monthly payments than traditional car loans. However, lease agreements will have limitations on mileage, which is an important factor to consider when thinking about leasing a new car.
