Help

The vehicle repayment calculator helps you calculate the monthly repayments you'd have to make for a given vehicle loan and loan terms. You also have the option of calculating the cost of typical finance fees and insurance products.

Start by specifying the purchase price of the vehicle you are interested in buying. Then use the sliders to vary the extras, deposit, rate, term etc. by sliding the buttons to the left or right. The new repayment will be re-calculated as you release the slider.

To add insurance products to your deal, simply select the product you are interested in by ticking the checkbox next to it. You can move your mouse over the small info boxes next to each option to get a description of that option. Additional useful information will be displayed when you select certain options, such as the balloon % and insurance products.

You can print the contents of the calculator by clicking on the "Print" link on the top right hand side of the page.

Use the sliders to change values in the textboxes.

Move your mouse over the small info boxes for additional information.

The Finance House will also add an initiation fee of up to R1140 (which you may pay upfront or have it added to your finance at a small extra cost per month) as well as a monthly service fee of up to R57 (also additional to the figures shown on the calculator).

The final rates and payments can only be determined by your Finance House once they have assessed all your information (completed in a finance application form).
