Make sure you understand all the terms of the loan.
Make sure you can pay it back and are comfortable with the monthly payments.
Put as much money down as you can (you’ll get a lower interest rate, and have to pay off less).
Get the shortest time period you can manage. Remember, no more than 48 months!
If you get a rebate, use it as part of your down payment.
If you make extra money, use it towards your loan—pay it off early if you can.
