About Car Loans in Malaysia:

In Malaysia, the type of loan which can be taken up for buying a car is known as a flat interest rate. A flat interest rate involves a fixed interest rate on the amount you have borrowed.


For example,

You apply for a loan of RM20,000 at 5% flat p.a for a duration of 5 years. This means that you will have a monthly repayment of 60 months.

The total interest cost will be 5% x RM20,000 x 5 years = RM5,000 (per year)

Over the course of 5 years, the total payable amount where principle (RM20,000) plus interest (RM5,000) is equivalent to RM25,000 which is RM416.67 per month.

(1) Value , Type (Local or Imported  Car)
