When you enter into a car loan, you will have a set number of months to pay off the full balance. While it's perfectly normal to make regular payments and finish paying the loan back throughout the full duration of your loan, more and more vehicle buyers are finding ways to pay that balance back faster - and reap the benefits of doing so.
Staying safe out on the road comes down to more than vehicle safety ratings. Cars, trucks, SUVs, and other vehicle types all share the road, and arriving at your destination requires cooperation. And that means you, the driver, have a responsibility to abide by the rules of the road too. Think back to a time where you've seen a driver who is not paying attention or following the rules of the road - at times it can be pretty frustrating. Today, I'm covering some of Minnesota's most common traffic violations and sharing tips on how to keep yourself, your passengers, and other drivers safe.

For someone who's not in the car buying business, the standard terms for vehicle type and pricing aren't always as clear. The average individual buys a car once every six years, and in those between years, it can be all too easy to get a little rusty. So, whether you're new to the car buying process, looking to brush up on your terminology before visiting a dealership, or just want to double check the terms you already know, I hope you enjoy this breakdown of common car buying terms.
Financing a vehicle purchase has numerous benefits. A finance agreement allows vehicle buyers to get into a new or newer car without having the pay the full purchase amount upfront. Additionally, making regular payments can improve credit scores, and driving a newer, more dependable vehicle can save plenty of money on repairs and maintenance. However, financing a vehicle oftentimes puts you in a position of negative equity, and it's important to know what that means before entering into a finance agreement.
When you're looking for a dependable, reliable, and trustworthy used vehicle, certified pre-owned cars are a great option. It's important to realize that used vehicles and certified pre-owned vehicles are different. Sure, both types have had previous owners, but they have more differences than similarities. Today, I'm going to give you a detailed breakdown on what sets certified pre-owned vehicles apart and explain why these vehicles are worth considering the next time you visit a dealership.
There's no two ways about it, brand new vehicles are appealing. They're beautifully designed, they have the newest features and capabilities, and they're factory warrantied. When it comes to new, the list of benefits seems to grow the longer you think about it. But, there's one caveat keeping a lot of folks away from brand new vehicles: financing. Luckily, that's not your only option. The top three ways people buy new cars is by paying cash, financing, and leasing.
Each of these options is different, and that's a good thing because there's lots of different kinds of customers as well. If you're asking yourself: "Should I lease a car?" you've come to the right place. Leasing is a good option for people who like to have a new car every two or three years and people who only want to pay for the portion of the vehicle you're using. If you're new to leasing, this blog is a great way to learn about the different components that affect the overall investment of a lease agreement.
