Finder's car loan calculator can help you figure out your loan costs in minutes. Use the calculator below or compare some car loan rates first to see what a good rate looks like.

How to use this car loan calculator

  1. Enter your loan amount. Or put in an estimate if you don't know your exact loan amount.
  2. Enter your loan's interest rate. If you don't know the rate you can take one from the car loan table below.
  3. Enter your loan term. Car loan terms are usually between 1 and 7 years.
  4. Select your repayment frequency. You can choose monthly or fortnightly repayments.

You can also enter an amount for extra repayments if you are planning to pay off the loan early (and if your car loan allows it).

Calculator Assumptions: The above calculations are worked out assuming you’re paying off a principal and interest loan where the interest rate remains the same over the life of the loan. The repayment amounts do not take into account any additional fees or charges that may be charged to your loan (e.g. application fees).
Disclaimer: Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this calculator, the results should be used as indication only. They are neither a quote nor a pre-qualification for a loan.

5 tips to reduce your car loan repayments

  1. Find a car loan with a lower interest rate. The lower the interest rate, the less interest you pay.
  2. Watch out for fees. Some lenders charge a one-off application fee and a smaller monthly fee.
  3. Adjust your loan term to suit your needs. A shorter loan term means your monthly repayments are higher but you pay less interest overall. A longer loan term means smaller monthly repayments. But because you'll have the loan for a longer time you end up paying more interest.
  4. Make extra repayments. If a car loan lets you make extra repayments you can pay it off early and reduce your overall costs.
  5. Improve your credit score. You can get a lower interest rate if you have a better credit score.

Hidden costs that can make your car loan more expensive

Speed

Early exit fees

Some lenders let you make extra repayments. But some actually charge you a fee for paying off the loan early. This is more common on fixed rate car loans.

You can check a loan's exit or early repayment fees before you apply.

Balloon

Balloon payments

Some lenders offer car loans with a balloon payment structure. This just means that your monthly repayments throughout the loan will be lower. But at the end of the loan term you'll have to pay off a large lump sum to fully pay off the loan.

This can be a nasty surprise if you don't understand how the balloon payment works.
