How much are late fees for car payments?

How much do late fees for car payments usually cost? I'm going to have to make a late payment because my paycheck got delayed, and I'm wondering how much the fee will be.

Answer
That sounds like a really stressful situation, but you might still be able to make your payment on time! Depending on your lender, your contract may include a late payment grace period for. But if you do need to pay a fee, it will usually *cost between 2-5% of your monthly rate.
If you got your loan from a bank, you’ll likely have a 10 day grace period to make your payment. However, it will be considered late if you can’t pay until after it ends. But if you’re more than 30 days late, the payment will be considered missed, and your car may be put at risk of repossession. If you’re worried about making payments in the future, you can refinance your loan to lower your monthly rate.
