If you don’t want to spend $3,975 on a car purchase, as the average U.S. household does, then consider one of the following:
One, you could try buying an older model to cut down expenses by more than a half. Car values drop significantly after the 12-month mark, so browse the market a bit for something that fits your needs and that won’t make you dig too deeply in your pockets.
Two, you could start looking into ways to use your car to pay off your car. Becoming a driver, signing your car up to be borrowed while you’re at work or even car advertising could help you save up the money you’ve spent purchasing the vehicle.
