When it comes time to buy your next car, you will have to make a few important decisions, including what brand you want to buy and the body style. Some people prefer sedans while others prefer SUVs. This is largely a matter of personal preference since you can find the same features and amenities on either style of vehicle. To figure out which is right for you, consider a few key areas where one excels over the other.
Versatility and Seating Space
In terms of versatility, even a small SUV tends to take the lead over a sedan. Both body styles will typically have split and folding rear seats, but SUVs will have more spacious cargo areas, as well. Their taller roofs also provide extra headroom, something many drivers appreciate. Like sedans, most small SUVs will only have seating for five passengers due to space constraints. However, you can find the occasional small SUV with [...]

To make the most out of your trade-in, you can do a few things to maximize the value of your Chrysler or other model.

If you want to get the most money for your old car, it should be in good condition, and the best way to ensure this is performing regular maintenance. This isn’t a very complicated task; simply follow the guidelines listed in your owner’s [...]
Few people are able to buy their next vehicle outright, even if it is a budget-friendly model. Because of this, dealerships and banks offer a range of financing options.

With a little bit of research, you can get the best rates possible and start enjoying your car.
Check Your Credit Score
Before applying for financing, you will want to take the time to look at your credit score. While this isn’t completely necessary, it is a very good idea. This can give you insight into how banks and credit unions will view your financial abilities. Knowing your credit score can also help prepare you by giving you an indication of the interest rate you may receive. Most importantly, checking your credit score [...]
