I have an auto loan pay off goal and want to see how fast making larger payments can payoff the auto loan and how much interest I can save.
How much additional would you need to pay each month to pay down a loan in a certain number of years and months? Run this pay off loan calculator to find out your early loan pay off time. Enter your loan balance, your current monthly payment, the interest rate, and the desired number of years and months to pay down the loan and this extra payment calculator will show you how much additional you must pay each month to meet that loan pay off time. It also shows how much time and money you will save if you pay off the loan early vs. paying as scheduled.
A Good ‘Pay Down Loan’ Strategy is to Pay Extra Principal Every Month
One of the most common ways to pay down a loan early is to pay additional principal each month. You don’t have to pay a lot of extra each month to make a significant difference in your loan pay off time. An additional $50, or even $25 extra principal each month may make a surprising difference. You can save a lot of interest if you pay down the loan early.This pay off loan calculator is designed to tell you how much extra you should pay each month to pay down a loan in the years and months you choose. Use the Existing Loan Payoff Calculator if you know how much additional you can pay and want to see how soon you can get to that loan pay off date.
