Here is my car payment:
To figure the yearly cost, I took 50,000 and multiplied it by the percent of the total budget that one certain category has. For monthly, I took the yearly cost and multiplied it by 12.
After Seeing How Much I Could Spend, I Picked a Car
The Car's Extrerior
This is the car I picked. As you can see, the exterior is very pleasing to the eye
The Car's Interior
It has a great interior with a decent amount of space.
It includes nice featured such as this GPS system/radio.
My 2015 Kia Forte XL $15,998
Which Loan Should I Choose?
I used the Present Value Formula to figure out which loan I could afford. After doing the math, I figured out that I could pay for a 4 or a 5 year loan. After looking it all over, I decide to pay for a 4 year loan because I want to own my car as fast as possible. To figure out how much I actually spend, I did 259.43 multiplied by 48 (that is 4 years in month form) and got $17252.64. In 4 years, I'll finally pay off my car and have the satisfaction of actually owning my own car.
