Who is eligible for MBSB Hire Purchase?
As car loans go this one is fairly inclusive, Malaysians between the ages of 18 and 60 with a minimum income of RM1500 per month are eligible to apply.

How much can I borrow from MBSB?
Depending on your credit record and payment history you will be able to borrow up to 90% of your car's market value, for up to 9 years. This MBSB car loan is available for both national and non-national cars and comes in conventional and Islamic variants, the latter following the concept of Al Ijarah Thumma Al-Bai.
What are my car loan repayments?
Your repayments for the MBSB Hire Purchase are calculated using a flat interest rate. Good news is that you can pay in excess of your monthly installments to reduce your principal borrowing amount which means you pay less interest in the long term. Monthly installments can be repaid over-the-counter at your local MBSB branch.
What if I don't keep up with my repayments?
You'll definitely have to pay a late penalty fee if you miss a payment! If you've opted for the Islamic variant you will only be charged 1% as a penalty, otherwise, you will have to pay 8% per year on the overdue payment.
If you don't keep up your repayments for two consecutive months the bank has the right to repossess your car. You shouldn't keep it to yourself if you have trouble paying off your loan, it would be best to have a talk with an MBSB representative.
