How Much For A Down Payment?

How much of a down payment do I need?

When buying a used car, you are not required to have a down payment. However, the more money you put down up front, the less you will have to finance, and the smaller your monthly payments will be. Experts recommend having a down payment of at least 10% of a used car’s price.
