Lightbulb Rate of interest on Passenger car Finance?

Hi there...

Can any one let me know about the rate of interest dealers charge on financing passenger cars (like Indica Xeta) for period of 36 Months EMI.

I heard that Indica V2 Xeta is around 3.4 Laks on road in Hyderabad, would like to know the rate of interest (on 3 year finance)

If anyone has taken Xeta or Marina recently (2006) let me know the EMI's and the Rate of Interest.

Thanks in advance

I enquired at TATA showroon at Pune and they told me that TATA Finance is offering 8.5% for 5 year loan. Thats the lowest interest rate I have heard recently.

You will have to learn to negotiate... bargain hard. Only then can you expect a good deal on new car finance. Else if you just do a casual enquiry you will always be told the rack rates which are always a good few hundred basis points higher than the actual retail rates you can bargain for.

I purchased my Indica in July'05 and after lot of hard bargaining and setting one financier against the other managed to get 5.8% or so as the lowest rate for a 3 year loan. 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).

The best rate you can get as of now for 3 years is about 8.5% after all negotiations. That will amount to Rs.3155 per lac... The rates are going up so if you interested then please go ahead and get it done asap else u wanna pay more...

EVO6, wouldn't the rate of interest also depend on the company and the model you choose since the dealer - bank might be willing to part with some of their returns based on how a model is selling?

Can you specify if this deal is for a specific auto company or for a Xeta.

You are very right sumit. The rates do vary, not only from company to company but also between various models. When I was buying my Indica I was told that while the rate for a diesel car is very competitive the comparative rates for the petrol model will be at least 1% higher!

SBI is offering 8.5-8.75 for new cars from any company. Only things except for maruti, you will have to apply to the bank on your own, get the loan sanctioned and then go to deal for the payment. Maruti has tied up with SBI, HDFC and ICICI as per my knowledge.

I think TATAs have teamed up with TATA Finance and ICICI. TATA Finance is also offering rate comparable to SBI if you are looking for a TATA vehicle

If I am correct, most of the other banks like HDFC/ICICI are offering above 10%

I doubt that... much as Tata Finance tries they fail to be as competitive as the ICICI bank. I found that out when I purchased my car. The showroom in collusion with the Tata Finance people tried to subvert my loan to Tata Fin. However as soon as I realized what was happening I came down on them like a wall. Then they even agreed to actually offer me a rate almost as good as ICICI (actually .25% more than ICICI rate) and tried to beg and cajole me into it. I almost fell for it when I noticed that the buggers were going to charge me 2% processing fee on the loan amount!!! That is when I blew my top and said no way. But then Tata Fin said they can not waive off the processing fee. So I got the loan through the ICICI bank.

Default Rates revised

Is everyone sure about the rates. As according to my information the rates has been revised by RBI last month

Now its very difficult to get interest rate below @11 %.

I made a mistake, we r buying a new tavera. The interest offered to us in the month of FEB was 9% for loan amt 3,45,000.
Last week booked the Travera and we got @ 11%
