It really depends on your situation. If your credit is OK, you should go to a bank or credit union first and see how much you can afford (or be willing to pay each month). Once you know how much you can spend or borrow, then you can look for cars in that price range. If your credit is not good enough for a bank loan, you may have to search local 'buy here / pay here' car lots. These places will normally have low payments but the interest rate is much higher so you should avoid these lots if possible. If you can find a car for sale from a private owner, the price is usually lower than a car lot or dealer. Hope this helps.
Many, provided you have a reasonably healthy credit score. What sort of cars are you looking for?
