First time purchasing a car. Little to no

1 Answer


At $5500 I would purchase it cash if you can. Put down as much as you can to lower your payments, but not sure you can get a car loan for that low amount. You might have to secure a personal loan. Talk to your loan manager at your bank or credit union.
