  • What’s your budget? First and foremost, you need to figure out what you can afford. Set a limit and work from there.
  • How much space do you need? Looking to haul around as many friends as you can or are you usually going to drive on your own? Narrow down by category depending on what you need from your car. There’s no need to buy an SUV if you don’t need the space.
  • How often and how far do you drive? If you drive every day or you drive long stretches frequently, you might want to consider prioritizing fuel economy and making sure that your new MPG matches your wallet’s depth.
  • What kind of driving do you do? In-city mileage tends to be lower than highway mileage. If you do most of your driving in the city, you might want to check and see if you can find a hybrid model or check for good in-city mileage.
