The following amortization graphs detail month-by-month data on the progress of the proposed loan. The first chart below examines the reducing loan balance over the course of the finance contract term. The second graph illustrates the portion of each monthly repayment allocated to payment of interest vs principal reduction.
In order to accurately estimate your monthly Car Loan repayments, the purchase price that you enter should include the on-road costs that you will incur on taking posession of the car.
Stamp Duty, Car Registration and Comprehensive Car Insurance are examples of on-road costs that you can include.
If you are buying a car with either a cash deposit or a trade-in vehicle to offer as a contribution toward the car purchase, the amount left to borrow will be lower.
Car loan repayments will be lower with a trade-in or a deposit and, whilst you having equity in the vehicle isn't generally a prerequisite for a car loan, it can make it easier to qualify for car finance in some cases.
Bad Credit Car Loans and car finance for young drivers are examples of where a deposit or trade-in would make it easier to qualify for a car loan.
Car Loan Finance contracts typically run in the range of 2-5 yrs, however longer and shorter finance terms can usually be negotiated.
Unlike a home mortgage loan where you monthly loan repayments fluctuate with changing interest rates, car finance loan repaments are generally fixed for the term of the loan.
Note: The Car Loan Calculator does not make allowance for a Loan Residual value. If you wish to simulate a Car Loan that includes a Residual, please use our Car Lease Repayment Calculator.
