How Much Can You Afford to Pay for a Car?

Your down payment and monthly payment amount are just the beginning of the costs involved in owning a car. Maintenance, insurance, fuel, and other ongoing expenses can take up a substantial amount of your overall transportation budget.

For many individuals, the price of car they can afford is a function of the amount of the monthly payment. You can use this calculator to help determine how much you can afford to pay for a car based on your monthly payment amount, down payment, loan term, and available interest rate.
