What down payment is required to get a car loan?

A down payment of 10% of the overall price of the vehicle is required in most cases. Although, some lenders may accept less. It is advisable to make as large a down payment as you can afford.

Preferably greater than 10%. Paying a large amount upfront means you will have to borrow less. Borrowing less translates to lower payments.
