 How much was the car, how long did you finance for, what was the interest rate?

We financed DH's 2005 Dodge Magnum at 8%.  We put $7000 down, and financed a total of $8000. Our payment was $171/month.

Yes, our car payment was 140/mo for 4 yrs on a 6,000 dollar loan. I don't know what the interest rate was because it was in my dad's name but we paid it off in a little over 2 years.

My husband's car payment for his 2000 accord was $175 a month when he bought it back in 05. I don't know what the interest was on it though. He paid it off pretty quickly because he would also put down extra money for it. The last payment he made for it was in early 07.

My very first car was $145 monthly over 4 or 5 years.  Of course it was used, had no power anything (including steering) and financed at like $6000.  I don't remember the interest rate.....but there is no way I would ever put my kids in a Ford Aspire.  Nice little car for a single person but not family friendly.
