The Basic Components of an Auto Loan from Lancaster Dodge Ram FIAT

Down Payment: This is how much cash you pay upfront for your car and is calculated as a percentage of the overall price of the car. Generally, the higher the down payment, the lower your monthly payments will be.


Interest Rate: Also known as the A.P.R. (Annual Percentage Rate), the interest rate is the money you pay a lender to borrow their money. Your credit score, the current market rate, the loan term, and the size of your loan impact your interest rate. The lower the interest rate, the lower your monthly payment.

Loan Term: This is how frequently and long you will be paying your loan. Typical loan terms consist of monthly payments made for 3-5 years. The longer your loan terms, the lower your monthly payment will be.
