Hey guys... the rates have gone up but not to the extent you guys are talking about. The rates you are quoting are called the rack rates. However no one takes loans at these rates. The actual disbursal rates are always lower... depends on how well you negotiate. When the disbursal was somewhere around 6-6.25% just 6-8 months back the rack rate used to be around 8-9%. So you see...

By the way, do not believe on what you see at the SBI site. That second hand loan rate of 10.5% was there even 8 months back. Even during that time it was the lowest rate for second hand cars. So I went to inquire. The manager feigned total ignorance and said that if the rates were that easy he himself would take a loan... and then even started a lecture on why SBI won't give a second hand loan at anything less than 17%. Had a bloody holier-than-thou attitude that I could not care less for...

Interest Rate=10.73% monthly reducing
Dealer discount=12100

My loan was approved earlier, current rates are 11.75%
The loan rate for Tata's petrol cars are always higher than their diesel cars. If you would have purchased an Indica Diesel your rate would have been lower by 1-1.5% at the least.

rtech, the govt. has hiked the rates due to the high rates of delinquency...they figure with the high rates, they can cover the cost of the car in the interest and when they reposses the car, they will not run under loss.

One can still bargain on the rates. I bought a baleno about a week back at 10.25% and got a financial discount also. Initially I was told that the rate would be 10.75% with no financial discount. I told the dealer(Mithra Agencies) that another one(Saboo) was offering at 10% with a financial discount(I knew this as I was negotiating with saboo too). Why did I pick a higher rate? Well, I was getting more discounts from mithra. Different dealers quote different rates from the same bank. My loan is with citibank. They are the cheapest right now other than SBI, atleast as per the dealers.

SBI advertises 85% of onroad price, but the person who is the approving authority has the final say and he can go as low as 60%. Happened to a friend of mine, who didn't bother going over to take the loan when he was told that his loan amount was 60% of the on road price.

Have fun,

I understand that now the rates have hardened a lot. Still I think a good and hard bargain should get you around 7.5%. Remember the 3 year loans always get you the best rates. So if the 5 year thing is available for 8.5% you should get the 3 year loan for at least 1% less and with some good negotiation at 1.5% less (7% rate of interest).
Hi Zappo,

Can you tell us your loan amount and the EMI? Did you pay any service/processing charges ?

Default More updates on Interest Rate

Hey Everyone,

Just got some information regarding the interest rates for the following cars. Hope it helps you in your calculations..

a) Hyundai Xing with ICICI finance was at 13% monthly reducing with 4.5% discount on the loan amount

b) Toyota Corolla with ICICI Finance was at 12.5% monthly reducing with 5% discount on the loan amount

Each one said the loan rate has just risen again for the 2 or 3 rd in the last two weeks and were not ready to move on these rates.

Hope this helps.

-Sumit

Angry I got it at 10.25 % from Kotak

It seems the loan rates are on a rise !
few months back it was quite low....

I recently booked a FORD IKON and after heavy bargaining with the finance guys ,finally the best I could manage was 10.25 %.
Note that the ROI calculations varies from bank to bank...
So,the best way is to ask for the per lakh EMI....its 2120 for me...

Absloutlely... I've also heard that is better to approach the DSP agents than the bank itself. The reason being that if negotiated well they tend to eat into their profit and give to a better ROI. Then make it up with other "Willing-to-spare" customers.
Yes EMI/Lakh is the best way to compare between banks...
