Our car loan calculator can give you a good idea of how much your monthly payments and total cost will be for a proposed car loan. Enter values for each field, use $0 for any that are not applicable to you, then click "Calculate Loan" to get the results.
- Vehicle Price (before tax) - Price of the vehicle before tax. If you live in a jurisdiction where tax is added as part of a purchase price (Australia for instance) include the tax in this amount.
- Down Payment - The amount of money you will put down on the car.
- Trade in Amount - The amount you expect to receive from trading in your current car.
- Amount Owed on Trade - Any money you still owe on your trade in vehicle.
- Interest Rate - The interest rate of the proposed loan. This should be the interest rate and not APR.
- Sales Tax Rate - The rate of sales tax where you live. Leave as 0% if you entered a price that inclued tax.
- Term (Months) - The number of months your car loan will run over.
- Auto Loan Start Date - The month that you will take out the loan. We calculate with payments starting one month after this date.
