April 28, 2010 - PRLog -- Are you thinking about buying a new vehicle? If so, there are a few things you should put into mind before you make that purchase. This article will make you aware of how much owning a vehicle could actually cost. It will describe all the other extra costs that may not be on your mind at the time of buying a vehicle.

First, and most obvious, you will have to make car payments when you finance a car (http://www.mycarlender.com/). Depending on how much you put down, and how long you financed the car for, and your interest rate, will help determine how much your payments are going to be.

Once you know how much you will be paying monthly for the car, there are other expenses that you have to be aware of. Before you could even drive the car, you need to get the car insured. Make sure you shop around for the lowest rates out there.

Another expense that comes out of your pocket is gas money. As you already know, gas prices have risen dramatically in the past years. Make sure you put into mind how much money you will need to fuel the car on a weekly basis. This will help you determine which car is best for you, since each car differs when it comes to the amount of gas it takes to drive it.

Finally, you need to think about depreciation. Many cars loose value as soon as you drive off the car lot. If you want to own a car, do your research to make sure it is the right car for you. You could see what cars have the lowest depreciation, that way you will not be losing to much money if you decide to trade the car in or sell it in the future.  Many experts recommend getting a used car auto loan (http://www.mycarlender.com/179/auto-loans-for-used-cars/), as pre-owned vehicles have already endured the steep initial drop in value.

These are just a few things one should consider before they make a vehicle purchase. You will soon come to realize the true cost of owning a vehicle.
