Before you meet with your coach, use the following guide to make a list of your regular monthly expenses. During this session, you’ll create a working budget. It should take about 45 minutes. It’s important for you to unlock/thaw your credit accounts if you keep them locked/frozen before this session, because your coach will check your credit score. Keep saving money! You and your coach will discuss your down payment requirement based on the vehicle model you choose. Check in with your landlord/leasing office and employer to make sure they have received and completed the emailed reference form.
