Feb. 26 — Personal Finances: Car Buying

Looking to buy your dream car? Do you know how much car you can afford and still have enough money to purchase gas? Most service members will purchase a new or used car while in the service. Many spend more of their disposable income on automobiles than on virtually anything else except food and shelter. Held virtually from 11 a.m. to noon, this class is designed to help you save money and hassles on your next car purchase by focusing on the purchase, financing and the trade-in.
