 # Quick Answer: How Do Car Dealers Calculate Monthly Payments??

How to Calculate Car Payments –

## How much is a car payment per 1000?

\$20 for every \$1,000: That’s a good rule of thumb for estimating monthly payments when shopping for a new car or truck. At today’s interest rates figure you’ll pay \$20 a month for every \$1,000 you borrow with a five-year (60-month) loan.

## How do you calculate monthly interest rate?

To calculate the monthly accrued interest on a loan or investment, you first need to determine the monthly interest rate by dividing the annual interest rate by 12. Next, divide this amount by 100 to convert from a percentage to a decimal. For example, 1% becomes 0.01.

## Is financing a car worth it?

The final thing worth mentioning about financing a used car is that your monthly payments are probably going to be higher — even without factoring in the cost of money (interest). This is because the duration of the loan is typically much shorter, 2-3 years vs. the typical 5-6 year new car loan.
