How Much Car Can I Afford?

Purchasing a new or used car should be a fun and exciting experience, so worrying about whether you will be able to afford the dreamy car you find on the lot shouldn't be part of the equation.  Knowing what your buying power is before you head to the showroom will set your mind at ease and allow you to look at the right vehicles for you.  It also helps our staff to fit you with the perfect vehicle that you will be excited about, even when your first payment is due.

We Have The Tools to Help You

So how do you know how much car you can afford?  Check out our Payment Calculator right on our Ames Ford Lincoln website and figure out exactly what you can purchase, right from your phone or computer!  All you need to know is what your down payment will be, an estimated APR, and your desired length of term.  You can play around with your price, term, and down payment until you get to the calculated monthly payment that you are reaching for.  Remember to calculate any estimated taxes, title, and fees into the cost of the vehicle.  Once you have a better idea of what pricing you are looking at, you can let our helpful staff know what type of vehicle you are wanting and the price range you are looking at and we will try to help you find exactly what you want! 

Feel Confident

Come into our showroom feeling confident in what you want and what you can afford and we will do all the work for you from there.  Not sure about using the online payment calculator?  No worries!  Come on in and we will help you figure it out right here and make the whole process super easy.
