How much you should earn

R20,000 per month is a lot of money to pay for a car, and financial experts recommend only taking on this type of financing if you can afford it.

A good way to check whether you can afford a car is to look at the monthly payments compared to your gross salary.

It is recommended that you do not spend more than 20% of your gross monthly income on car payments.

This means that you should earn R100,000 per month before deductions before you consider spending R20,000 per month on a car.

You must also keep in mind that fuel and insurance costs will have to be covered over the lifetime of your vehicle.

It is therefore prudent to calculate a total monthly “cost of ownership” for the vehicle and ensure it does not eat an unreasonable chunk of your income.
