Shopping with a budget in mind?

Best Cars for the Money | CarMax

One of the first steps you should take when shopping for a vehicle is to determine your ideal budget. Figuring out a general price range that you can comfortably afford will help you narrow down your options and ensure that you don't spend more than you want to on your next vehicle. Don’t just think about the price, but related costs as well. This can include anything from annual costs of ownership to car insurance coverage, and more.
