Re: Is 2.29% really 2.29%

Ok I just did the math and it should be $804.60. Perhaps the first number they gave you was a rounded figure (rounded up from 804.6 to 805) but I have no clue where they got the 805.35. Sorry for all the confusion!!!

Re: Is 2.29% really 2.29%

So if I am understanding this correctly they ARE charging me higher monthly than they should?  What Can I do?  I tried to talk with the bank but they are saying that's the monthly figure $805.35.

You should be paying more than the minimum anyways. I wouldn't worry about the $1.

Re: Is 2.29% really 2.29%

I personally wouldnt go through the hassle of arguing a difference of less than 1$, but that is totally up to you. I believe the difference is probably caused to some difference in the loan amount, possibly some hidden fee from the dealer or random finance charge rolled into the loan....who knows.

Re: Is 2.29% really 2.29%

Yes, I agree it isn't worth the hassle.   I am going to pay more than the min anyways.  I just don't like the idea of thinking maybe the bank or the dealership is doing one over on me or any other consumer.   Thanks all for your input and time.

Re: Is 2.29% really 2.29%

possibly, time from closing to first payment, interest accrued to make the loan amount actually higher.

Re: Is 2.29% really 2.29%

The loan officer couldn't tell you why ? Interesting. Does sound like the bank is trying to pull a fast one on you with a some hidden fee somewhere & knows you won't do anything over a dollar. I would though if I was bored enough.

I am thinking something along those lines as well. You are accruing about $3 per day of interest at the start, so if your first statement cuts about 20 days after close. You would end up with a monthly payment about $1 higher than simple calculations would yield.

That seems like the most logical thing to me. My last auto loan had a "grace" period of about 45 days, during that time I couldn't make a payment and interest was still accruing.
