Buy as much of Car Can You Afford, The more you put down the less the payments will be. Most people put down 10%, the normal is 20%. You are younger the lender may want more of a down payment.

Buying you first car with no credit history may be interesting.

Unless it's 40% interest "Hey, come on down, we carry our own contracts! We finance anybody! We take anything in on trade! Even a pig! Seriously, get a co-signer or work and save for a year
