This application is really what every buyer needs to have, so that there is no shock about what things cost. I find that if you are in control of the numbers, you have much more of a chance of putting together the proper deal that best represents you. Great Application and an even better contribution to our society.

Be careful on this app. The Lease versus buy comparison is not correct if you simply rely on the input fields. When you enter your loan info, it asks for your sales tax rate and then calculates this as an additional amount needed for your loan. On the Lease Payment there is NO mention of monthly sales tax amount. Guess what, when you lease you still have to pay sales tax, just on your monthly amount versus the entire purchase. I can foresee someone saying that all you have to do to account for this is include the monthly tax amount as part of your monthly payment, however NOT true. If you do this, it substantially throws off your money factor. I looked for an email to tell the developer about this but could not find it. If the developer simply includes the sales tax as a separate line item in the lease payment so a true apples to apples comparison can be made, I will definitely move this to 4+ stars, until then, beware. If you want to get some sort of apples to apples comparison, do NOT include sales tax in your loan calculation and BE sure to request the dealer gives you your monthly payment quote (without TAX) which is what they normally do to you to make the payment seem lower than it is. PLEASE fix this comparison error. Until this is fixed, the lease will seem better if you correctly input into the lease payment calculator the Money Factor Quoted by the dealer.

This is an excellent app to help make the process of buying a car (or leasing it) less daunting. It lays out the costs of both financing and ongoing in a clear concise way. Every new car buyer should arm themselves with this prior to walking into the car dealer.

All of the information mentioned in "doesn't ask for enough info..." is included on the purchase screen. Enter the info there, and the loan amount at the end is the amount of the capitalized lease. This separates all of those fees so you are just left with the amount you need to borrow. Then borrow that amount through a loan or lease. That is what you need to compare.

Easy to use and accessible. Great application for someone planning to finance a vehicle.

I have been testing different iphone apps for several weeks now, and this app literally has everything I need and more! I had a problem initially in that I needed higher interest rates for comparisons, so I emailed the developers right from my iPhone, they responded within 24 hours and in one week the new feature was added! This app is so easy and intuitive to use. I can play with the numbers in seconds to help me make informed decisions. I also love the fact that I can do 'what if' scenarios and with the click of one button on just about every page, I can get a concise report emailed to me, which allows to to send to other dealers to see if they can match it. Every time I go to a dealer, they riddle me with confusing numbers, trying to confuse me with their hidden charges. With this app I have actually nipped their trickery and have walked away from these shady deals. The little scrolling wheels make it so easy to adjust my totals, so many other apps have sliders which I find impossible to move accurately. And when I make changes to an amount on one page, the app automatically updates the formulas on the other pages. I personally love the Loan screen that lets me play with the interest rates as well as the purchase price so I can see exactly what my payments are going to be. It really shows me how much the developers care about making their product the best when they put an Email Us button right on every screen so that we can easily send them suggestions, express concerns, or ask them questions. I really can't say enough about this app!

Excellent app! Worked great for when I was buying a truck!

Thought this would be a great app for me and my customers. Why did we quit at 96 months. With the high end products available a lot of my customers are going out 10 to 12 years or even more. Very disappointed that this app is limited like it is. Can't override.

So far, the only app I found that allows you to factor in negative equity (when your car's trade-in value is worth less than you owe on it). This app really helped me determine what I could afford and what I wanted my deal to look like. I literally held up my iPhone and said, "match this and it's sold" and they did!

Poorly organized app. Confusing to use and fields not appropriate for evaluating lease rates. Waste of money.
