How does a down payment affect my auto loan?

A down payment is an initial, upfront payment you make towards the total cost of the vehicle. 

Your down payment could be cash, the value of a trade-in, or both. The more you put down, the less you need to borrow. A larger down payment may also reduce your monthly payment and your total cost of financing.
