Thinking about purchasing a used or new car? How much are you willing to pay? Do you walk in the dealership with a budgeted amount? How do you determine the cost and value for this form of transportation?

Do you mean that the car should get many miles per gallon of oil; or that the number of miles already driven on the car should be low? Thank you for criteria to determine the set price of the car. So, you go in knowing just how much you will pay?
Yikes! That is a high set point compared to what I would pay.
If you have saved up enough to make large downpayment or get good trade in value for your old car this sounds like a good idea.
Jeff - Thanks for tips on bargaining, financing and car history. How did you determine the price limit for your future automobile purchase? So, you go with the NADA value and will pay that amount?
Normally you can haggle them below the NADA If you are paying cash. Say the car was 10,000 dollars, I would offer them 8,000 with tax, tags and title included. They would probably jump all over it. Especially this time of year. You are very welcome.
