    No, it's incorrect because it's a run-on sentence.  

    Say instead:  She needs to buy a car; it would be very helpful to her.  

    Or:  She needs to buy a car because it would be very helpful to her.

    fyi:  "needs to + infinitive" is a folk expression not necessarily involving "need."

    She should buy a car because having one would be very helpful.

    I agree with Bluebellbbk.

    A more succinct version would be, "It would help her a lot if she were to buy a car."

    In fact it's two sentences. Each of them can stand alone as an independent clause.As you can't join two sentences with a comma, you'll have to decide whether to separate them completely, or connect them with a semi-colon.

    She needs to buy a car. It would be very helpful to her.orShe needs to buy a car; it would be very helpful to her.
