Am I eligible for Bank Islam Vehicle Financing-i?
If you are a Malaysian individual aged between 18 and 60 years old, and earns a fixed income, Bank Islam will certainly consider your application. The credit approval rule of thumb around these part is that your monthly loan repayments should not exceed 1/3 of your monthly salary.
Is this an Islamic car loan? How does it work?
The Bank Islam Vehicle Financing-i is based on Islamic concept of Murabahah, i.e. method of sale with deferred payment. Bank Islam can finance up to 90% of the car's price and is willing to give you a maximum period of nine years to pay off the loan amount.
The profit rate and selling price will be fixed and known to you upfront at no hidden or extra charges. All you need to do is service your monthly instalments religiously to avoid incurring unnecessary and burdensome penalty fees.
The bank will revise its indicative profit rates from time to time, so be sure you keep yourself updated.
|Type of vehicles||Profit rates|
|National||From 3.00% p.a. to 3.60% p.a.|
|Non-national||From 2.90% p.a. to 3.35% p.a.|
Note: Indicative profit rates with effect from May 2017
What if I fail to service my monthly repayments?
You will be charged 1% per year on overdue installments, also called Ta'widh (compensation). If you think you're going to be late with a payment call the bank and let them know.
Do I need any Takaful coverage?
It is a legal obligation for you to undertake a comprehensive Motor Takaful coverage on the vehicle financed for the entire financing tenor. There is also an optional personal accident Takaful coverage known as Auto Financing Takaful Plan you can sign up.
And if I choose to pay off my auto financing earlier?
Yes you can pay off your car loan in full whenever you like. As a gift for your tenacity in paying off your debts you'll get a rebate on the remaining financing period.
