You already have a budget in hand and you know how you will get the money to buy a car but first things first, what kind of car are we talking about here?

You also need to check the kind of parking space you have, the kind of safety features you have and whether you have a family or not?
How many passengers do you need to carry? What type of driving do you do: highway, surface streets, off-road? Will you drive in ice and snow?
