How Does it Work?

As you can see, a seven-year term can lower your monthly payments to make the vehicle you want more affordable. You have a monthly budget in mind and want to get the most for your money Choosing a term up to seven years can allow you to buy a more expensive vehicle for the same monthly cost as a lower-priced one. You can use the extra purchasing power to select a model or features that meet your needs for added cargo room, safety or new technology features like hybrid power. For example, let’s say that your monthly budget is $500. The chart below* shows you what you could afford based on various loan term periods.
