Description

An overview of Chapter 17: What Does Car Ownership Cost?

This session will focus on the big but common questions students may face, such as What type of car do I want? How do I pay for it? Should I buy new or used? 

Understand the typical challenges, and always do research. Everyone wants a shiny new car, but being economical and making good decisions will ultimately work the best for you and your budget.
