    Default Help please! Car finance options help

    So i have applied with 2 banks for a car loan $30000
    Bank a said the repayments will be $236 fortnight at rate of 8.93%

    Bank b said payments of 239 fortnight at 8.45%

    How can bank b be a lower interest rate but repayments are higher???

    Im confused. The car yard is offering bank a offer so im scared tp trust them and both say it includes all fees

    Can someone explain this to me? Thanks crap

    Are they for different terms? Ie one is paid back over 5 years, the other over 6 years?

    Sounds like the terms. But sheesh I reckon that's a big interest rate for a car loan - work out what the car will actually cost you at those rates...

    Could it possibly be something like a loan application fee?

    Or does one have loan protection insurance included in it?

    My rate with a toyota was under 6% and my mum just bought a new car for 2.9% with toyota as well... I could be wrong but it does seem quite high...

    For a car loan, they are good rates. I would be looking at their fine print and extras, compare their set up fees, have they added loan protection insurance, etc

    Yet those Toyota 2.9% etc are all special offers if u buy a brand new one but we aren't doing that so can't get that rate.. Also those have a balloon at the end of the loan u have to pay or refinance.. Already looked into that one

    Yeh its so odd.. Will have a look at the fine print but both Say all fees are inc in that fortnight price. Its all i will have to pay

    They can't lie to me can they? I have had this all over the phone so havnt sighted the papers until Friday

    Definitely go over the fine print - your understanding could be different to what it actually means - my DH ended up paying loads for a car on finance years ago, because some sort of insurance was included as part of the finance - insurance he didn't need. Good luck!
