Use the amortization formula to find the monthly payment A first:
A = P * i*(1+i)n/((1+i)n-1)
where i is the interest rate per month, n the number of months, and P the principal. In your case
P=92,000
n=60
i=0.0249

These values give a monthly payment of A=1,632.
 
Therefore, the total payment over 60 months is
60*1,632=97,941.
 
Note: The amortization formula is also known as the annuity formula, because it works for an annuity (where you receive monthly payments) the same way it works for a loan (where you make monthly payments).
Is the interest charged yearly: 2.49% for every 12 months, or is the 2.49% for every monthly payment along with the $92,000? If you want to know how much the interest, payments, and total cost, it will go as follows: I=PRT (interest=principal x rate x time)
 
            I=92,000 x .024 x 5
