Reasonable Interest Rate
Car dealerships have accredited or partner banks for your Auto Loan. It is best to check their interest rate per month and analyze which bank will be of great help in getting your dream car.

It’s easier for the bank to know your background and your financial capability as you are their bank consumer.

In getting that dream car, down payment and monthly amortization are not just your priority. Be sure to save up for your car’s PMS or “Periodic Maintenance Service” to prolong the life of your vehicle. Car Insurance is also your top priority so be sure to have this agreement with your car dealer. For other taxes or additional charges, always ask for an Official Receipt so you can track down your expenses and save up for the next year’s payment or car service.
Make sure you have a stable job or own business that will help you settle for your monthly Auto Loan bill. Re-consider applying for an Auto Loan if you have existing debt, credit card balance, or no savings yet. Avoid getting in trouble in the near future!
