The important question is : how much should I be spending in order to tick all the lender’s vehicle finance requirements and criteria off the checklist, and qualify to buy a new or used car?
Apart from having a good credit score, a deposit is always a good idea when it comes to financing a vehicle – the more you put down, the less your monthly vehicle finance repayments and the more car you can afford.

SAVINGS WITH A DEPOSIT
- Less interest
- More disposable income
