Your monthly payment is based on the net purchase price of the vehicle, the loan term and the interest rate for the loan. Loan amount is based on the net purchase price of the vehicle (plus sales tax) or the vehicle price less any cash rebate, trade-in or down payment. If you have an outstanding balance on the vehicle you trade-in, that amount is added to the price of the vehicle you are purchasing.
