Before making a purchase, especially a large one, most buyers ponder an equation that goes something like: What is it going to cost me, and will that equal what I am going to get?

Consider that equation when buying your next vehicle. Naturally, you want to get the most vehicle for the money you spend. Here are several tips that will help you to get more for your money.

First, and foremost, consider eliminating some of the steep depreciation cost incurred during the first three years of vehicle ownership by purchasing a 2- to 3- year-old used vehicle.

The price can be further reduced by paying cash. However, if you need to finance your next vehicle purchase, consider doing the following to keep its cost closer to the "as if you were paying cash" figure.
