Even if the Axis offer looks more tempting, stick with SBI. You'll not regret it. SBI is 10% and even if Axis offers 9.5%, there will be some hidden charges and you'll end up paying more. Also SBI does nor require an advance EMI. Private banks take it. Advance EMI means you are paying interest on the full loan amount but they are actually giving you the full loan amount minus advance EMI.

Thank you very much! I have given them four different cheques on 19th and 20th. Due to intervening week-end I expect them to be collected by 23rd, so told the ABT people to keep the car ready for my inspection (prior to registration) on 24th and delivery is expected by 26th.

Today a person from RNS motors, Bangalore gave me the following details on the SBI loan for Ritz VDI with ABS (loan amount 5.16 L), please advice if this is a better offer.

1st year - 8% interest - EMI 8107
2nd year - 10% interest - EMI 8699
from 3rd year till 7th year - 12% interest - EMI 9180

No pre closure charges if closed after 6 months.

Somehow I felt I should be able to close the loan in 2 years timeline. Is this a good deal?

For SBI, as per current promotion, 8% first year, 2nd & 3rd year 10%, and floating from 4th year onwards.

There is no charge on pre-closure, only if you have crossed 50% of the tenure, else there is a charge.

So, do check these details.

This seems to be the best deal going around in the market presently. Axis bank is offering 9.75% for a 3 year loan for Hyundai Vehicles. Rest all are 10 or above AFAIK.

As you said, SBI does not charge you pre-closure charges if you close the loans with your own funds(read - from your account).

Default Try Bank of Baroda

I got my loan for Alto from BoB. I took along all documents, photographs, etc. and it took exactly 17 minutes for all the documents to be prepared and signed. 3 days later, I got the cheque.

I was charged 11.25% in November, 08. Since then, it has come down further. I found thtis as the best deal after comparing SBI, BOB, HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank

Most Nationalised banks offer good deals. Formalities are also smooth. Stay away from private banks unless you want to spend extra.

Car loan rate varies across different car dealers !!! AXIS bank car loans are offered at 11.75% interests rate when availed through Concorde TATA while they are charged at 10.5% when availed through TRIDENT HYUNDAI..(i found this while speaking to both the dealers as I am presently contemplating on whether I should go for a FIAT or Hyundai car)

Is this the right process ? And the other surprising aspect is, when I checked with AXIS bank directly, the loan rates were at 12%

Its kind of confusing !!!

Folks,

I have just applied for a car loan from SBI Bangalore 3 days back, I have been told by the car dealer and the bank guys that the processing would be done in 10 days.
Can you fill me in with details regarding how long it has taken for some of you.

Regarding the interest rates from SBI (Starting July 1st)
First year is at 8%
2nd and 3rd year at 10%
4th and 5th year (or till the life of the loan) - *card* rate at the time of loan sanction.
The SBI guy who was doing the loan for me told me that card rate currently for a 5 year loan is 0.75% below PLR (12%) - so 4th and 5th year would be charged at 11.25%

Regarding preclosure/prepayment:
No charges if money paid from your own funds and there is a proof for it.
Else it is charged at 2%

Aman,

It will take close to 10 working days. Do not expect anyone to call and tell you if the approval has been given. And do not try calling on those numbers that they might have given to check the status - those lazy bones just do not pick up any calls!!!

Just call the person who is handling you case regularly and check for the approval and then get him to get an appointment for you.

Actually, they do call if your loan is approved. And then you have to take an appointment with RACPC Bangalore - usually, at their convenience, not yours - and believe me, they can be quite rude on phone as well. One of the reasons I did not consider SBI for a second car loan.

^^ Kuttapan,

What I meant was, regardless of the fact that the SOP (standard operating procedure) is for them to call-up and say that the approval has been done and then asking for the appointment timing, they never do; well, at least, they did not do for a colleague of mine and for me! Both of us had to call up and ask!

And the numbers that they might have given to call up and get the appointment, well, I tried continuosly for 1 week with NO LUCK!!! Finally had to call the agent and get the appointment thru him.

Hence, what I mention is not hear-say, but actual experience.
