Get Started With A Car Payment Calculator
Certainly, the best way to estimate what your monthly payment might be is to check your credit and then use a car payment calculator (see below). However, you won’t know exactly what rate and loan amount you qualify for until you apply for a car loan.
Approximately, the average price of a vehicle is $25,000 to $35,000. Very few people can afford to pay cash. If you are like the majority, you will need to request a car loan. Contact our loan staff at 808.737.4328 or email our loan team to get pre-approved before you head to the dealership.
Auto Loans: Total vs. Car Payment
Auto loans are pretty simple once you break them down. Pearl Hawaii pays the dealer a lump sum for the car. Technically, Pearl Hawaii Federal Credit Union owns the vehicle until the loan is repaid. Once the loan is paid in full, you would have paid for the car (the principal) and interest (Annual Percentage Rate, APR, Rate). Interest is what you pay to borrow the money.
While considering this, sometimes your monthly car payment may be more important than the total cost of the car. With our car payment calculators, you can quickly determine how much you will owe and what you can afford. A car payment has to fit in your monthly budget and your lifestyle’s needs.
Additionally, information from our car payment calculators is for example purposes. Our interactive calculators are educational tools. We cannot and do not guarantee their accuracy in regard to your individual circumstances. While a calculator can be a useful tool, all examples are hypothetical and are for educational purposes. We encourage you to meet with a Pearl Hawaii Federal Credit Union loan officer for accurate car payment information.
