Your car and the interest rate. useful advice, save big.
I kept my last vehicle for 16 years. Although she was still running smooth, and looked pretty decent for being an “older but paid for vehicle” I decided to trade her in. I wanted newer safety features, bluetooth and well, that new car smell! I shopped around and like Cinderella, […]
You can’t afford that extra bill!
