What is a reasonable monthly payment on a new car?

Hy husband and I just lost a car due to a car fire. Our insurance is going to enable us to have up to a 3k down payment. We'-ve been looking at fuel efficient cars, and there'-s a Honda Fit 2011 that we like. The dealership has the sticker price at 16,500. Are we insane to even look at it? We'-d like to keep the monthly payments around $200, and my dad seems to think that'-s possible. Our credit is average.


To get down to $200 per month payments, you'll have to have a larger down payment or a really great interest rate. Don't forget your insurance rates will go up too because of the newer car and the claim you've had on your policy.Do a Google search for "Auto Loan Calculator" and you'll find several web sites that allow you to plug in a loan amount and interest rate numbers to see what your monthly payments would be.


It doesn't work like that. The dealer offers either bi-weekly, or monthly payments (usually bi-weekly) on a VERY short amortization period...usually 2 or 3 years, meaning the bi-weekly payments for most cars around $200 US/CDN. To get lower rates, you need to get a car loan from a bank of the total amount of your car, and then pay the bank instead over a much longer period of time and probably at a high interest rate.


if you go to a credit loan place then you should be able to get a 60 month loan for $257.97 per month. That is with your 3k down payment.Source(s):http://www.autoloan.com/auto-loan-calcul…

CA is usually short for "commercial auto", so odds are, it's a commercial auto policy.But it might not be.See, insurance companies set up their policy numbers all seperately. There's no standardization. Sure, it could be Progressive. It could be Hanover. No way to tell.
