Ownership

Think you know how much a car costs? The total cost of ownership for a car today is so much more than just what you pay at the dealership. Unless you're paying cash for that new car, you're also going to pay interest on the price that you and the dealer agreed upon. There are some great car financing options in today's market. While there may be some great low or no finance deals out there, interest costs are going to drive the cost of ownership up.
