The information you need in order to see what your new rate will be is
as followed: the amount of the original loan, the term of the original
loan, your monthly payment, number of payments you have already made,
and the interest rate of the new loan. After you plug in all of this
information in the auto loan refinance calculator you will see how much
you will save if you take the option of refinancing.
Let us look at an example of how much you will save. Let's say you
bought a car at $20,000 ($450 a month for 60 months). You already made 10
payments and are offered a lower interest rate of 5.8% if you refinance
your auto loan.
According to the auto refinance calculator you still need to pay off
$5,032.48 of interest with your current loan, however if you choose the
refinancing offer you will be lowering your monthly payments to $394.10,
and need to pay off $2237.56. As you can see you will be saving
approximately $55.90 a month, which does not seem like a huge amount, but
over time you will be saving $2794.92 on interest.
Auto refinancing calculators can come in handy when trying to decide if
you should refinance your car or not. Just a note: Often there are
closing costs involved with refinancing, so you will need to have a little
cash on hand to refinance your vehicle loan.
