How Car Payments Reduce Your Loan Amount

Did you know that if we assume you earn $5,000 per month and you have a car payment of $400 mo, at current interest rates (around 8% on a 30 year fixed rate loan), you would qualify for roughly $55,000 less than you would have had you not had that $400 a month car payment (ouch!)
