How do I get the best rates on a car loan?

How is an amortization schedule calculated For a 78,000 car loan?
Let's use an example of a 4 year car loan of 78,000 at 6%. The monthly payment will be $1,831.83.
We need to calculate how much of that payment goes towards the principal and how much is paid as interest. So first we find the monthly interest rate. With a 6% annual rate, the monthly rate will be .5%. Since the balance starts at 78,000, .5% of 78,000 is 390.00. So we subtract the monthly payment of $1,831.83 minus the interest paid of 390.00 to arrive at a balance reduction of $1,441.83. The new loan balance after the first payment is now 76,558.17. This is repeated until the loan is paid off.
Take a look at the chart below to see how the amortization table is created for the first 5 payments of the loan.
