Choosing Make and Model

What car type is right for you?

Figure out what type of car meets your needs, and of course, still fits your budget. If you will be transporting children and packages on a regular basis, a mini-van might be the vehicle for you. Will you be driving through snow or on dirt roads? If so, consider an SUV with 4-wheel drive. If stop-and-go traffic is a part of your daily life, you'll want a car with an automatic transmission. Do you often have more than one passenger in your car? Then you probably want a 4-door car, not a 2-door. Those on a tighter budget should consider an economy car, which will have a lower price tag, cost less to insure and will consume less gas. Driving a hybrid will allow you to save gas and be kinder to the environment.
