Default Auto finance for Alto LXi

Hello everyone.

Thinking of buying an Alto LXi with electronic power steering. Need you valuable comments on the car.

Also The best rate I have received from Finance Cos. is 2145 per lakh for a 5 year period ,the EMI works out to Rs. 6199. This offer comes from Kotak Mahindra. I am hopeful of bringing them down to 2120 per lakh.

Thanks guys for all your feedback.

So long....

Hi Varun,

The best offer that I got from HDFC(with advance EMI) was Rs.3190 per lakh (for Swift-VXI) & from ICICI (with advance EMI) was Rs.3178 with a clause that the Insurance must be taken from ICICI Lombard.

My Collegue has got a deal from ICICI (with advance EMI) for Santro for Rs.3170 (EMI per lakh).

(All the rates are for 3 years)

Regards,


batman

I got Rs 2112 EMI per lakh for 5 year at 9.75 % from SBI in June 2006. I too got the ALTO LXi. The adjective I can use for the car is great!!! See my other threads and posts on the car. SBI works good for me beacuse after 12 EMI's I can pay in lump sums and slowly close the loan with any preclosure damage. They are transparent and charge a proccessing fee of 0.5% on the loan amount. No advance EMI and hidden charges. All the best....

HDFC called me today. They are willing to advance 100% of Ex-showroom cost and there first offer is 2100 per lakh. Can bring them down further but they are not clean bankers and always have a hidden agenda. Will keep posted.

So long....

My experience with HDFC is pretty ok (I am an SB a/c customer too).

While looking out for a financier, HDFC gave me 2096 per lakh for 5 yrs for a Baleno Lxi and that was the max I could bargain for.

I second that... My alto is also financed by SBI... And the lumpsum payment part is awesome... Other pvt banks have wayyy too many hidden charges and clauses... My EMI works out to be roughly 31xx per lakh, for three yrs... Dont know the exact fig.... Dad pay it!!
P.S.- I have heard pvt banks to sometimes charge more than what they contracted for (viz one or two extra months' EMI!!!!)... Be doubly sure of the quoted EMI fig and the duartion of the loan... They show way to many calcutaions to scare the hell out of us...

Exact same quote for finance on the Swift too.

If you have your papers(address proof, IT returns, Payslips, bank statements) perfect, SBI is the best option. Really transparent, not one paisa less, one paisa more...

I prefer banks other than nationalised institutions, coz the next time I want any finance, I can show the previous repayment track, but in the nationalised banks like SBI or SBH, SBT, Canara Bank etc, each time one has to go through the formalities.

Ofcourse I wouldnt stick with a private bank if their interest rates are high!

Btw what does HDFC come under?

This is the latest from HDFC. 2020 per lakh for 5 years. Its like a fish market. When somebody calls up I tell them that I have almost finalised with XYZ. After finding out rate they offer you 30 to 50 bucks less than that. I then ask them to Fax their offer so that I have a firm commitment from them.

The only advantage with the nationalised banks is that there is no foreclosure charges. In all other respects they are tedious and even the interest rate is much higher, Moreover they take a long time to process your loan, besides they always insist on a Guarantor. Loans with Mnc banks are processed in 24 hours if your papers are in order. If you have a previous track record then its even faster,

So long....

Hi Varun,

What are the other rates that you received from banks like Citibank/ICICI etc.

Hi there; a friend of mine is looking to buy a car; SBI is offering (for today only) 2100 per lac for a 5 year loan for a new car. Is this good? or should i look further?

ICICI has quoted 2469 and 2379 (DSA and branch respectively) for a 2nd hand car for 5 years. UTI bank has offered a 5 year personal loan @ 2225. Am thinking of recommending UTI bank since the car is not a collateral, we can avoid valuation for the car AND we can get 100% loan.

Hi all,
I'm planning to go for finance for Alto Lx. I'm getting my salary slip from this month only( I was working on contract so no sal. slips till now) coz i changed my job. Now i can get address proof,bank statements. IT returns can't be optained as i'm not a tax payer till now and sal. slip will be getting for this month next month starting. So having these in mind can i go for SBI loan(wishing to go for it), will they ok with only address proof and bank statements(I'm a member of SBI for 4 yrs now)?Please advise.

Regards,
Kiran.
