Calculating Your Car Payment

While you can’t calculate your monthly car payment to the penny, having a good estimate will put you in the driver’s seat at the dealership and help you compare auto loan offers on new cars and minivans. Here’s how to use the auto loan calculator and a look at the different numbers that will make up your car payment.

  • Car price: In this field, put in the retail price of the vehicle with any specials offers taken into consideration.
  • Interest rate: You can enter the auto loan rate you’ve pre-qualified online for, or estimate your rate based on your credit score. If you aren’t sure where your credit score stands, you are entitled to one free comprehensive credit report a year from the government site
  • Loan Term: Enter the loan term, or the number of months you plan to take to pay off the loan.
  • Down Payment: Enter the total amount of cash, if any, that you’re putting toward the new car.
  • Trade-in Value: Enter the value for any vehicle you may be trading in towards your car purchase. Not sure what your car is worth? Use our value your trade tool online for an estimate.

Press the “Calculate Payments” button and you will be given an estimated payment based on the information you entered, as well as the ability to adjust it based on the loan term. You can also re-do your calculations by changing the trade-in value, down payment, and the interest rate to see how it impacts your car payment.
