Hmmm the rate of interest sounds really good. And in fact at 9.29% monthly diminishing the EMI works out to 19161 and the interest paid should be 89793. So if your calculations are right you may very well be getting even less than 9.29% rate.

Only hitch is, I wonder whether the 5% pre-closure is not a tad too high. Nonetheless considering that you are anyhow going in for a 3 year loan and unless you seriously think you may want to foreclose it within 1.5 to 1.75 years (after that foreclosure is foolishness) there is no point in worrying about it.

Rate is good, EMI is correct.
Usually they charge .1% as processing/administrative fee. In your case its comes to Rs 600. If possible, bargain and say you will pay the processing fee for zero pre-closure charges. In that case you can close the loan anytime you want without any hitch.

hi sincere suggestion. why buy a new car and loose very heavily on interest and depreciation? why not a well maintained used vehicle? huge choices abound. think cooly. today, money saved is money earned!

I think its a very good rate. Rates have increased from last April, so this is as good as the old rates.

Those rates are good, go for it, 5% preclosure is a tad high, but all else is good. I really think it's a good deal at those rates.

Ok ! Have they asked you for 1 month prepayment of EMI?

Have you been offered any discount on the car. If not, the discount has probably been passed on to the financing bank and you would be getting a lesser rate of interest. Was this bank suggested by the dealer itself?

5% prepayment penalty is the norm. One of the reasons for giving lesser rate of interest is that you will pay the EMI for the entire tenure thus helping the bank make more money than when you preclose.

Find out if there is partial prepayment. Some banks have it, some don't.

Its also a good idea to directly approach other banks and see what kind of deal they have. Government banks sometimes have good deals except that the paperwork process and loan disbursement may take a tad longer.

I have another question related to this, do Loan rates vary based on the type of car you are buying ???

Does someone(who has already explored multiple banks) has a list of existing car loan rates compiled for various banks ???

Yes, Loan rates vary based on the car you buy. If its a car with good resale value, the risk associated to the bank in case of non payment is less.

Next, there would be a tie up between the dealer and a bank. So the bank offers the best deals to the dealer who passes it on to the customer. Typically the dealer has a list of 3 banks that he has tie ups with.

There are a lot of hidden dealings that happen. The car dealer usually has a discount that he's ready to offer for a car. If you want very less interest rates he'll pass that discount on to the bank and the bank will give you a lesser rate of interest. Coz the bank already has some principal repaid !! This is not known.

Another is the pre-emi. You pay 1 emi right away. This they say will be fully deducted against the principal. Now obviously without any interest period you have repaid some amount of the principal. Therefore the interest rate offered to you is less.
