Excellent thread.

I always talk to the banks in terms of per lack per month EMI and that makes wonders.

Also, negotiations are best done towards the end of the month as mentioned in the opening post. Dealers are willing to go that extra mile to achive the monthly numbers...

And I think last 2 weeks of November will be the best time as people (resale value types) want to have new year registrations and also Diwali is over by then so sales are slow...

Default Reliance to enter Car Financing

Anil Ambani is all set to shake up the car financing rates come Oct 18th. As promised in todays Economic Times, the company will provide the lowest rates.

I am holding my paper work with my financier till the 18th. Atleast i hope to get some benefit of the 3 month waiting period on the car !

I beg to differ doctorque. ICICI is NOT the best car financing bank. They get their DSA's to do all the dirty work. They poach customers from other banks with false promises of lower interest rates and better emi's and when the customer realises what he has got himself into, it is too late.

If you want transparent service, and competetive rates, go to the nationalised banks, SBI for instance.

@ Sahil : Try the nationalised bank that you may have a business account with. Bargain with the branch manager.

GTO- I did check with them, their rates were much higher.
Do you get your financing done outside or your nationalised bank?

SBI is offering me 11.25%
The EMI is Rs5,193 [Rs 2 lakh for 4 years]

The dealer is offering ICICI's 13.75% (+3.5% finance payout)
The EMI quoted is Rs5,171

Does that mean the finance payouts negate the PSUs' lower interest rate advantage? Or is there something wrong here?

Also, does daily reducing/yearly reducing matter when the EMi is lower?

Better stick with PSU. 20rs/month extra is not worth goons knocking on your doors.

When the finance payout is adjusted in EMIs, not downpayment

Car finance can become complex because of the financing deal between the car dealer and the bank.

It will help you negotiate better if you follow the process below:

1) Finalize your decision on the car you want to buy. The interest rates vary from car to car; so, what is available on one car may not be available on another car

2) Fix the amount of vehicle loan you need. Suppose the car costs
Rs 8 lakh on the road and if you are ready to make a down payment of Rs 2 lakh, then freeze your loan requirements at Rs 6 lakh. Interest rates that you get also depend on the loan amount.

3) Ask around for preliminary quotes for the given loan amount for the given car. Freeze on the lowest EMIs that are offered.

4) Now, negotiate on the processing fees. Most times, the processing fees can be waived.

5) Then, start negotiating for cash discounts that can be adjusted against your down payment. The DSAs/dealers will offer to reduce the EMIs, but resist the temptation and insist on a cash discount. Also, the dealer/DSA will offer accessories in lieu of cash discount; again, resist and insist on cash discount.

6) Once you find that the cash discount limit has been reached, you can try for a small freebie on car accessories such as car mats, boot mats etc.

7) Remember to claim your no-claim bonus on the insurance policy for the new car if you have a claim-free record on your existing old car.

Hi all,

I had taken a car loan from HDFC 3 years back at a rate of 6% and they had fixed the EMI for 5 years (Approx Rs 8650 for 4.5 Lakhs for 5 years).

Will my EMI still remain the same till the end or will it change as the bank rates have gone up over the last 3 years? I dont want to get a shock of my life when I go to close my loan after 2 years.

Cheers!!
