*The Comparison Rate combines the lender's interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the true cost of a personal loan. The comparison rates displayed are calculated based on a loan of $30,000 for a term of 5 years or a loan of $10,000 for a term of 3 years as indicated, based on monthly principal and interest repayments, on a secured basis for secured loans and an unsecured basis for unsecured loans. WARNING: This comparison rate applies only to the example or examples given. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and cost savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.

MyState Bank car loan FAQs

What is a variable interest rate?

It’s simply a rate that could increase or decrease while you’re paying the loan out. If your rate changes during your loan term, what you are billed in repayments will be recalculated either in your favour or not.

All MyState Bank car loans have variable rates and come with plenty of convenient features, which could suit you more than fixed rate loans, that are known to come with less flexibility.

What is a secured car loan?

Good question, as you’ll need to decide whether or not to tie your car to the loan as collateral. Ask yourself if you want to access the lowest interest rate. Answered yes? Then sign all necessary papers giving MyState Bank the power to repossess your vehicle if you default on your loan, and in return it will charge you far less interest. Alternatively, you can opt for a “General Purpose Loan”, which is unsecured and has a narrower borrowing range, but most features like the redraw facility (more on this later) still remain.

How much can I borrow?

The price of your car can range from $3k to $30k if you opt for a General Purpose Loan, or between $10k and $75k with any MyState Bank secured car loan. Make sure you have a strong credit history and financial situation to support your application, as it will help prove your ability to repay the loan.

Can I buy a used car?

Absolutely, but your interest rate will be slightly higher than if you buy a new car that has been on the road for 2 years or less. MyState Bank will allow you to secure vehicles aged between 2 and 7 years old.

Have your heart set on an old Aston Martin instead? Go for MyState Bank’s General Purpose Loan, or simply compare your options and choose another at our car loan hub.

How frequently will I need to make repayments?

Each week, fortnight or month. You’ll elect one billing cycle out of the three when you first take out your loan.

Can I make additional loan repayments and use a redraw facility?

Yes, and here’s the thing...All MyState Bank car loans - whether secured or not - allow you to dip into any extra loan repayments you make while paying off your loan. Convenient, right?

How long can I take to pay off my loan?

It depends on the type of loan you have. Secured loans can range from 1 to 10 years, while unsecured loan contracts can be written up for 1 year up to 7.

What will happen if I repay my loan early?

You’ll be out of debt sooner, and MyState Bank will not charge you a penalty fee for paying off your loan before the final due date.

What’s the car loan application process like?

Straightforward. Like many car loans these days, you’re not expected to visit a branch and can simply apply from your phone or home computer. You’ll be required to provide some personal details in the process too, including:

Once you’ve given MyState Bank everything they need, the turnaround should be quick. You’ll hear back from them in a couple of business days, and with a little luck those new car keys will be in your hands in no time!
