Setting a budget for how much to spend on your next vehicle often comes down to the monthly auto loan payment. A good rule of thumb is to spend no more than 10% of your monthly take–home pay on a car payment.
However, it’s best to look at your unique financial situation to determine how much you can comfortably afford to pay each month. Remember, you want to leave room to save for future car repairs as well as other “emergencies” that life brings.
In addition to a down payment, Oklahoma residents can expect to pay an excise tax of 3.25% of the purchase price on a new car and $20 on the first $1,500 of value on a used vehicle plus 3.25% of the remainder. Title and registration fees total are just over $100. For the most current details visit the Oklahoma Tax Commission website.
Finally, remember that a longer loan term may give you a lower monthly payment, but you’ll pay more in interest over the life of the loan. So, it’s best to choose the shortest loan term you can afford.
