While everybody - including you and me - has their own opinion of what constitutes the "American dream," owning a car is almost certainly part of our views of the aforementioned terminology. When purchasing, financing, or trading-in for a brand new or new-to-you vehicle, it's important to keep in mind that the vehicle's price tag isn't its total cost. Let's look into some of the most commonly-incurred additional costs that vehicle owners run into.

Registration fees are assessed as a percentage of the vehicle's purchase price, and when paid, allow you to legally drive your vehicle.

If you finance your vehicle, expect to pay sometimes-expensive financing fees to the financial institution that sets up payments.
