Car loans are calculated by several components:

Amount Borrowed

The total amount borrowed, or the price of the vehicle plus any accessories or add-ons, is one of the main factors in determining the auto loan.

Finance Rate

The financed rate is based on several factors including credit history, the vehicle itself and the risk the lender sees in lending the loan.

Length of Term

Term is the length of time it will take you to pay back the loan. We can offer terms of anywhere from 12 to 90 months depending on several factors. Most loan terms are between 36 and 72 months.

Down Payment/ Trade-In

A down payment or a vehicle trade-in can help lower your payment as well as increase your chance of financing.

Payment Frequency

Payment frequency is how often you will make payments toward your loan. The most common frequencies are bi-weekly and monthly.
