What is the suggested value of your car from www.kbb.com? ______________________

Based on the asking price and suggested value of your car, what are you willing to pay for your car?

Figuring payment:

What is the price you will pay for the car: $________________________
                    Less: down payment (_________________________)
                                   Trade in (_________________________)
                       Amount financed: $__________________________

What bank or credit union will you use? ______________________________

Look on the bank or credit union website and see what the interest rate is for a loan on the car that you
are buying (rates on used cars are higher than those on new cars). You will have to know whether you are
buying a used or new car, the make, model, year and mileage on the car, and how many months you are
borrowing the $$ for. (1 year = 12 months; 2 years = 24 months; 3 years = 36 months; 4 years = 48
months; 5 years = 60 months) ***The longer you borrow the money, the more it will cost you, but the
lower your payment will be.

What is the rate? _______________________ # of months of your loan __________________

Figure the cost of financing : amount financed              __________________
                                x interest rate             x_______________
                                x number of months/12 x _______________/12
                                         Cost of financing: $_________________

Figure your payment:    Amount financed: _____________________
                         + cost of financing:  +____________________
                         ÷ number of months    ÷____________________

                       Monthly payment =           ______________________

Now, get your insurance quote
Insurance company: _________________________________
Male or female: ____________________________
Age: _____________________
Driving problems (tickets, accidents, arrests (driving related)):

When you get your quote, you will need to tell them that you want liability coverage at 100,000/300,000.
You can decide what your deductible will be. The lower your deductible, the higher your monthly payment
will be. However, if you have an accident you will have to pay your deductible before insurance kicks in (if
you choose a $1,000 deductible, you need to be able to pay that much if you have an accident).

How much will your insurance be each month: _______________________________________
Note: If you are given a quote for 6 months, you need to divide it out to find your monthly payment.
