    Apply own car loan

    Can I apply my own car loan for a new car instead of using those banks recommend by the SE? Cos I see POSB offering a low interest rate for online application compare to those apply thru SE.
  3. CITIBANK is upending the traditional vehicle financing model here by pre-qualifying customers for car loans - thus bypassing the motor industry, which could lose millions of dollars in finance commissions if this practice is eventually adopted by other banks - PHOTO: AFP 18 Oct5:50 AM Singapore CITIBANK is upending the traditional vehicle financing model here by pre-qualifying customers for car loans - thus bypassing the motor industry, which could lose millions of dollars in finance commissions if this practice is eventually adopted by other banks. Under the Citi Direct Car Loan model, customers apply online for vehicle financing and those who are successful receive in-principle approval. With this conditional approval for a loan of a specified amount, a prospective car buyer can shop for a car knowing he or she has already qualified for financing. This is different from the current model where a new car buyer submits a loan application through the car company for the bank's approval. If the application is approved, the car company receives a finance commission from the bank, which can range from 1-2.5 per cent of the loan amount, depending on the quantum and tenure. Say, the average commission is 1.5 per cent and the average loan amount is S$100,000. For a top dealership selling 5,000 cars a year, with perhaps half of those purchases involving financing, the total commission could come to nearly S$4 million. To make its loan scheme more attractive, Citibank is offering flat interest rates of between 1.48 and 1.88 per cent per annum - much less than the prevailing market rate of about 2.28-2.68 per cent. Citi says its Direct Car Loan is a "no-frills service with no involvement of intermediaries, which in turn gives you the advantage of enjoying lower rates". At the same time, it is understood that the bank believes it is a more efficient and productive way of applying for vehicle financing. If the Citi model catches on with other financial institutions, it could spell the end of a longstanding relationship with motor distributors as well as finance income. But some car companies doubt that will happen. "Most distributors have a panel of banks they work with," says the managing director of a luxury dealership. "There are advantages to such tie-ups, the most important of which is customer convenience." He explains that car salesmen take care of the nitty-gritty for the buyer - something the latter won't get if a bank wants to be independent and go direct to the customer. "The salesman provides one-stop shopping," he adds. "If he doesn't do it, someone else will have to. So whatever is saved in commission may have to be paid out elsewhere." The sales director of another luxury dealership agrees: "It is part and parcel of buying a car. Of course, the salesman gets a commission but the emphasis is on customer service. Certain processes are involved; it's not as straightforward as it looks." Another factor working against the direct model is in-house financing, provided by the financial services arm of the manufacturer - something which all the German brands here have access to. "The dealer can easily take advantage of this alternative to keep financing in-house," the sales director says. He speculates that Citibank is rolling out this scheme because it wants to increase market share. The American bank is currently a small player in the vehicle financing market here, with DBS, OCBC and Hong Leong among the heavyweights. The latter three have tie-ups with most of the best-selling brands. "It's a good idea but, ultimately, it will be difficult to dictate terms to motor dealers." http://www.businesstimes.com.sg/transport/shake-up-ahead-for-car-loans

    Zero downpayment

    I was browsing through some of the ads in sgcarmart and realised that there are some cars that required zero downpayment. How does that works? How abt the flexible loan package that they offer? Meaning they can loan 100% as well? Does that violate any MAS rules?
  6. dont know much about this "Balloon Scheme" loan thing, saw a few 2nd hand dealer offer this loan. anyone care to explain wth is "Balloon Scheme"? how the thing goes? calculation? anything that consumer mus know about this "Balloon Scheme" loan... good side, bad side... cheers now down pouring on tampines... drive safe
  7. I thought it would be good to compile a list of to do before purchase Sort of a sharing and paying back to the forum Those that have additional infor, feel free to add 1. Check out how much you can loan. Yes, there are times when you "feel" you can meet the monthly payment, but then , the bank thinks otherwise. Lets not debate in dubious ways like overstating sales agreement and "football" payment. Yu may also want to check out the citiloan assist and there are good rates to be gotten for new cars. just be aware there will be some work on your part to be done so a good sales person is required. You are ideally cutting out the sales person comm of 800 to 1000 dollars on average. If like most, you have a condo loan or a condo is on the horizon, BUY condo FIRST as that will also hit your loan for the Condo. 2. check out which credit card is having a promotion for that month. a 10000 to 20000 down payment by card can gain you a lot of rebate / cashback. 3. Forecasting COE is as good as buying 2 coconut to point to the sky to contact your MP for tips on COE increase or not. Be aware that the 6 bids and top up only helps to lock you in on the down payment . Your choice of cars that you could have gotten IF it rise can be quite disappointing. imagine you book a 1.5L car and because of the top up, you would have being buying a 1.6L car as compare to the car at that point in time where you put ink to paper. 4. New car launches as they say early bird gets the worm. Can be as good at 6 K off. Cars that are in stock in that configuration would get you better discount. BUT note that lime green and orange coulors will be sticking with you way long after many CNY is over. So have to take the color that you like. But that's me. 5. Event cars maybe cheap, but its also DUMB specs. The savings may negate the fact that when selling, you are also getting lower resale. WHY ? 2nd hand car dealers has a list of specs that they note down. so things like a normal car sold with all the bells and whistle vs a dump down version will very quickly be identified by the second hand car dealers. Bi xenon head lights and LED are one example and IF its a second owner car, its even worst. So be careful not to be happy to have a 4K discount and getting short change in the end. As the saying goes, the devil is in the details. 6. Getting a pre own may not be so bad. Do note that the 6 - 9 months old car is normally 30 - 45 K different . You not buying a car from NTUC. So bargain away. Do check the TnC. 7. Check out the various insurance as that is also a big unknown. It varies and if you can ask on your own, the savings are as large as 300 to 400. Do note that the Sales will not be happy, so you have to check with the sales on what is the final price without loan and insurance. As the loan interest rate can varies do not be mistaken that its 1% different only. Car loan interest is very different from how other loans are calculated. ITS a lot of MONEY. Those that think otherwise can try out the apps on the SGCARMART to have a taste of the delta of 1% for 50K loan for 5 years. If its easy peasy lemon queezy, then good for you. 8. Do check when the YOM is. we are in 2015. If you still getting 2014 or earlier, there are insurance implication when it comes to fair market value. Do also check when you will be registering the car. If you register in dec 31 vs 2 Jan, your resale value can be as different as 4k to 6 K when its time to sell. ************ This is not exhaustive and as money is involved, those that buy do note of the risk that you take base on my insights

  11. Hi all, planning to make a first purchase of a car with ~1 year coe left before I go overseas. Was wondering about car loan, say the car I plan to purchase has low depreciation due to high omv. But i'm unable to afford the installment since the selling price is high and loan term is short. Is it possible to get a loan for the selling car price minus 55% omv value? Or would that be considered balloon scheme?
  12. There were a lot of argument car is so expensive due to high COE and profit margin by AD/PI. It will be interesting to see how many people who purchase car in recent time paying for their own car OR someone else pay for it. You may stay anonymous without owning up..
  13. Just cuious to know how much loan do most mercedes and bmw drivers take for their ride.
