Thanks for visiting our car buying site. If you have questions about any of our calculators, or general questions about buying a car, please feel free to say hi.
I'm Amber Satka, and I created this site for people just like me, who want simple and realistic car loan calculations.
It's been over 7 years since my first car loan, and I made a few mistakes when I started. Most importantly, I remember going to a few bank-sponsored websites and using their calculators to see what I could afford & then I took out a dealer loan without reading the fine print about the early payoff penalty.
There were a few key pieces of information which I felt would have helped my financial decisions, such as the total cost of the vehicle, sales tax, downpayment, and realistic interest rates. I feel the we, as consumers, may be using loan calculators that are mathematically correct, but lacking the real-world inputs.
So here I go, providing a tool that I would have found more useful those 7 years ago. It's something a little more down-to-Earth, and I hope you can use it and save money on your next major purchase. I tried to offer tips & advice on each calculator page, so please take time to read through those as well, as some tips can easily save you hundreds to thousands of Dollars in interest & other fees.
