Please note that this analysis is useful for comparison purposes but does not take into consideration other variables that could change the actual costs. Future dollar costs and savings are not discounted to a present value. This includes both the monthly payments and the credit for the value of the vehicle at the end of the loan. Since these dollar amounts are not discounted to a present value, the comparison does not reflect the time value of the dollar savings.
