Buying a vehicle can be intimidating, especially if you've never bought one before. There are several steps you can take to prepare yourself and your checking account for this large purchase. Doing your homework now can prevent future headaches.

Your initial step should always be to reflect on what you'll want on your checklist. Make a list of all the things you want from a vehicle, as well as all the things it needs to do. A soccer mom may need extra seating for carpooling and lots of room for sports equipment, while a bachelor or bachelorette might enjoy a smaller sportscar for zipping around town and easily parking in tight spaces.

Second, consider money; what is your price variety? A typical rule-of-thumb is to set your highest budgeted amount at 20 % of your take-home pay. For example, someone making $50,000 should designate $10,000 as their maximum purchase price. When making this decision, you should consider the cost of owning the car, paying for gas, and your other associated bills. You may adjust your budget accordingly.

Next, check the vehicle history on a site like Carfax.com. If the vehicle checks out, schedule a test drive of the car, and try to test it on roads like the ones you would generally encounter during your day-to-day routine. Ask any used car dealers you visit for records. After considering all the aspects of the car and whether it fits your budget, make an offer to a trusted salesperson.

While negotiating, feel free to take time to consider counter-offers, use the bathroom, or eat a meal. There should be no rush when making this decision, and the salesperson should help you feel at ease.

In the maintenance section of your owner's manual, there is an oil change information section customized for your vehicle. Commonly, the manual will note two service schedules, based on what they deem "normal" and "special" driving conditions. Decide which description best fits you and follow the advised schedule. If you are unable to locate your owner's manual, chances are you can find one online and even refer to Edmund's Maintenance Schedules, whose database includes makes as far back as 1980.
