When you put a $1,449 downpayment on a car that cost 14k, is the cost actually $1,449 or will they charge you more for other fees?

    As other have pointed out, taxes/titles/fees will be added to the cost of the car, so you should be out the door for $1,449.

    If you can afford more of a down-payment then it will help bring your monthly payments down (or you can do it over a shorter term).

    There will be costs for registration, title, miscellaneous dealership costs (I bought a new car and was rather startled that the dealer charged me for the State inspection).  Those are added to the price of the car (so it would be $14,000 plus costs) and the down payment is the downpayment, unrelated to other expenses.

    For example, if the car is $14,000 and $500 additional charges your downpayment would be subtracted from that total - $14,500 - and that would be the amount you finance ($14,500 less your $1,449 down payment).

    There is tax, title and other fees. But usually added into the loan so that $1449 is what you need down....IF you qualify.

    The down payment & fees are added on to the Total Cost of the car. Your monthly payment will include those costs. No harm in asking what & how much the difference will be,

    The down payment is just that, np other fees, so it will be $1,449. The taxes and fees will be added to the balance when you conclude the deal.

    "They", whoever that is, will charge you based on the selling price ($14,000.00), not the down payment.
