Mozo Review   bcu Car Loan Review

Last updated: 11 October 2018.

What's hot:
  • Competitive 5.90% variable interest rate

  • Flexibility of additional payments

What's not:
  • $25 redraw fee

Mozo snapshot:

With a low 5.90% variable interest rate (6.82% comparison rate), the ability to make extra repayments and the option to pay out the loan early without penalty, the bcu car loan ticks all the right boxes for a great value secured car loan


Key features:

The bcu special car loan has an upfront application fee of $250 and a monthly service fee of $8 for the life of the loan. It is available for loan amounts from $5,000 up to $65,000, so finding the right wheels to fit your budget shouldn’t be a problem.

Remember that in order to snag the low 5.90% interest rate, you'll need to bundle your car loan a bcu every day bank account

You can choose a loan term to meet your budget as the special car loan is available for any term between 1 years to 5 years. Plus, the variable interest rate means you get a lot of flexibility as you can make extra repayments whenever you like and if you decide to pay out the loan early, there is no early termination fee. 

While you also get the flexibility of a redraw facility if you do want to redraw on any extra repayments just be aware that there is a $25 redraw fee per redraw so don’t do this too often.


Who it's good for:

The bcu special car loan would be suitable for anyone over the age of 18 years looking at purchasing a new or used car over the value of $4000.


Any catches?

You’ll need to bundle the car loan with a bcu transactional access account to be eligible for the low rate but the good news is that bcu has a wide range of personal banking products to choose from including fee free bank accounts and home loans.

*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.

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.
