How to Figure Out What Your Car Payment Will Be

Figuring out how much your car payment is going to be is something that you’ll want to do before you actually get the payment. That way, you know whether you can afford to get the car that you want or whether you’ll need to wait. If neither one of those options work for you – if you absolutely need a car right now, for example – it might be worth considering a car that doesn’t cost as much so that you can afford to pay for it without breaking the bank.

When you find one, put in the price of the car that you want to buy. If you’re not sure, go with the amount that you’re planning on spending – you should already know roughly what that number will be.

Next, put in what you’ll be using for a down payment. Not every car dealer will require a down payment, but the more you can put down the better chance of getting the loan and the lower your payment will be. You can usually get a lower interest rate this way, as well. Enter the loan term – how many months you’ll finance for, the interest rate, and the total amount you’ll finance (price minus down payment, but add in a little bit for taxes). After that, just click calculate. At that point you should see your new car payment.
