How can I find out what my car loan balance is?

I'm trying to stick with my goal of keeping to a budget. That involves keeping track of all my expenses, including my car loan. Where can I find my car loan balance?

There are a few ways to track your car loan balance:
  • If you get a paper or email statement each month, it will show your current balance.
  • If you have online access to your account at a bank or credit union, you can check your updated balance anytime.
  • Many banks offer a voice-response menu over the phone, allowing you to check your current balance.
  • You can also call your bank’s customer service department. A representative can access your loan account and give you your balance.
  • If you use a third-party budget app, it can pull relevant data on your loan balance online and present it with your other financial information in a neat package.
