A regular vehicle maintenance routine can help you catch problems early on instead of paying more money to fix them when they’ve become a significant issue.

College is a time for you to be getting out into the world and exploring it on your own, but it is hard to do that when you don’t have your own set of wheels. Getting those wheels while in college can be a bit of a challenge, however.
The average new car bought in the US costs a hefty $32,000 and a mid-range sedan will set you back $22,000, even without all the bells and whistles.
This means that, for most students, getting a new car is out of the question and buying a used car is more practical. Unless you are getting a lot of help from your family, you can also probably discount getting a shiny new sports car or SUV as well.
So, if you are setting out into higher education and you want a car to broaden your horizons, without breaking the bank, what are your options?
