Features and benefits

Rates from 3.35% p.a. (3.89% p.a. comparison rate)

12 months to seven-year loan terms

Pay off your loan in as little as 12 months to seven years. Longer terms means more interest – but also gives you more flexibility to buy larger cars to accommodate a growing family.

Flexible repayments

Making more repayments? Select products don’t carry discharge or termination fees. Some of our lenders may charge discharge fees; ask your loan consultant for more information.

The most common secured car loan questions answered 

Find out everything you need to make an informed decision about a secured car loan in our handy reference FAQs.
Can I buy a used car with this type of loan?

Yes, you can buy used cars with secured car finance. Some conditions may apply depending on lender, such as age of the car.

Do I need to submit hard copies of my documents?

In most cases, no. We can process your documents electronically using our secure portal.

What is a comparison rate?

A comparison rate is an interest rate that includes most fees and charges expressed as a percentage per annum. You can compare similar loans using a comparison rate table. This allows you to make an “apples for apples” comparison between two loan products.

Can I pay off my car loan early?

Yes, you can make extra repayments without penalty to help you pay off your loan earlier. Switching to weekly or fortnightly payments can help achieve that goal easily.

What is car loan pre-approval?

Pre-approval or “in principle” approval gives you an opportunity spend up to a pre-determined limit when looking for vehicle. This has its advantage as you have a “price ceiling” that others will need to negotiate under in order for you to buy.

If I don’t pay back my loan, what happens?

You may be liable for repossession of the vehicle and be in default of your loan. Your loan will have to be over 60 days in arrears or non-payment before this process begins. Defaults and repossessions are rare – according to the Automotive Asset Backed Securities Index, the rate is 0.44% (2017.) There are many hardship variations and financial assistance options available before this is necessary – talk to your loan consultant for more information.
