Can I afford a $36,500 car?

Is your salary enough to buy a $36,500 vehicle? A general rule of thumb for buying a car or truck is the 20 / 4 / 10 rule.

  • Make a down payment of at least 20% cash. For a $36,500 vehicle, this would mean saving up $7,300.
  • Pay back the loan in 4 years or less.
  • Don't spend more than 10% of your income on payments and insurance. Rough estimate: your annual income should be at least 2.5 times the purchase price. So to afford a car that costs $36,500, you would need to make at least $91,250 per year.
