How Do I Choose a First Car in Missouri?

After you determine a reasonable budget, you can start narrowing down your options. We suggest searching through our used cars and new Jeep inventory pages and using the available filters. Then you can see plenty of Ram models or Jeep SUVs in Cameron, MO, that fit within your price range. Once you find a car you like, you can meet with someone from our Dodge financing department who will help you with your first-time auto loan.

How Much Should I Spend on My First Car?

Cars are a great investment, especially if you discover a make and model that perfectly suits your needs. But it's important to consider a budget and what dollar amount you're comfortable paying each month. We encourage first-time car buyers to use our free car payment calculator tool. That way, Missouri drivers can estimate how much their monthly Jeep payments will be based on the annual percentage rate (APR), how long the loan period is and how much the car costs. Plus, you can factor the amount of your anticipated down payment in to see how much it reduces your monthly car payments for your first-time auto loan.

What Should I Ask When I'm Buying a First Car?

Once you've settled on the best first car for your budget, make sure to ask if we have any available new vehicle incentives that you can take advantage of. Doing the research upfront and browsing new Ram specials online will help streamline the process. You should also ask how long the warranty is if you're buying a used car nearby, so that you have an idea of your coverage.
