Our staff at Modern Classic Motors in Grand Junction, CO loves to give tips on saving for your next vehicle. So if you are interested in a used vehicle at our dealership, stop by and talk to our team about what you need to do to make sure you are comfortable financially and can still save for a down payment if needed.

Look Closer at Your Current Budget

If you want to save for a down payment or need a specific amount down for the vehicle you want, consider looking at your current budget to see where you can sacrifice temporarily. For example, it may be in your best interest to cut out some entertainment expenses so that you can put it towards saving for the vehicle you want.

Check Your Credit Score

Checking your credit score is beneficial because you may get a lower interest rate by doing just a few small things. Take a good look at your credit score and pay off anything small or use a smaller percentage of your credit cards every month to see if you can get your credit rating higher.

Get Pre-Approved

If you are in the area, stop by our dealership to check our inventory and get pre-approved for the vehicle you want. Once you're pre-approved, then you'll have all the details you need to know what you need to do to get into the car you want. Then you have a reasonable estimate of what your monthly payment will be and what you will get for a trade-in or what you need for a down payment.

Save for Your Down Payment

You can save for a down payment for your next used vehicle by putting a specific amount in savings every month or even taking a certain percentage of your paycheck to put in savings every week.
