Mozo snapshot:

There’s a certain joy in getting a new car, so you want to make sure you get a car loan that makes the special day as joyous as possible. The RACV New Car Loan comes with a 5.99% fixed interest rate (6.53% comparison rate) and allows for you to take control of the repayment schedule; coming with either fortnightly or monthly repayments and terms for anywhere between 1 and 7 years. However keep an eye out for the $399 application fee.

Key features:

If you are looking for a hefty loan to finance your new Porsche or Lamborghini then make sure you give this one a look. RACV lets you borrow anywhere from $5,000 up, so you won’t be rejected by some annoying maximum loan amount.

The interest rate of your RACV New Car Loan is fixed, that may vary from anywhere between 5.99% - 15.00%, depending on your creditworthiness (6.53% - 15.58% comparison rate).

How often you make repayments and for how many years can help you to better manage your budget. The RACV New Car Loan allows for you to choose between 1 year and 7 years repayment terms and also allows you to decide between a fortnightly and monthly repayment schedule. This lets you personalise your repayment schedule to fit with your budget.

You also have the option to make fee-free extra repayments to pay off your loan quicker. Just remember that if you repay your loan early then you’ll be whacked with a penalty of 2% of the loan or minimum $205 if you pay in the first 75% of time of your term. If you pay in that last quarter of the term however, then you’ll be free to pay early with no fee.

Who it's good for:

The RACV New Car Loan is for borrowers buying a brand new set of wheels (not a second hand vehicle). Since there’s no upper borrowing limit and a pretty hefty application fee, it may be more suited to big spenders splashing out on a more expensive car.

Any catches?

While application fees are standard for any car loan, the $399 application fee is quite high, especially if you are looking at a smaller loan amount.

Great rates and excellent customer service

I researched quite a lot before getting a car loan with RACV, by a long way they offered the best rates and thats before the benefit of discounted Road Side Assist. Customer service was absolutely amazing when going through the application process...

I researched quite a lot before getting a car loan with RACV, by a long way they offered the best rates and thats before the benefit of discounted Road Side Assist. Customer service was absolutely amazing when going through the application process and I like the way they time up the Direct Debit on payday.

*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.
