“Buying your first car is a milestone for many, so if you are thinking of taking out a car loan to do it, you’ll want to make sure it’s with the best - and our Mozo Experts Choice Awards help you do just that,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont.

“Whether you’re looking to buy a brand new set of wheels or are opting for a preloved car, our awards can help you identify which loans can provide the best value.”

When choosing the winners, our judges looked at both fixed and variable rate options, as well as any ‘mandatory fees’ across all categories, like application, monthly service and exit fees.

Late payment fees, extra repayment facilities, other exception fees and loan features were not considered.  Products requiring an upfront deposit, existing membership, direct salary deposit or term deposit were also not considered for the awards.

Notable winners were Police Bank for their Green Loan, along with Police Credit Union which took out two awards in the Used Car Loan category for both its Fixed and Variable Rate Car Loan.

Other winners included taking out an award in the Car Loan category along with MOVE Bank and Illawarra Credit Union.

Bank Australia also took home an award for its Car Loan in both the Used Car Loan and Green Car Loan category.

“Not only does the Bank Australia Car Loan feature a low, fixed rate, but they’ll also reward you for having an eco-friendly car by waiving the $150 establishment fee,” said Lamont.
