Last Saturday my friend told me that he bought a national car 3 months ago and his car loan interest rates was 4% for 7-year loan tenure. But, mine was 3.5% (5-year loan tenure) only. I still remember last year for 7-year tenure loan interest rate should be 3.65%. Thus, car loan interest rates in Malaysia had been increased. I think this is following the recent increase in the Bank Negara Overnight Policy Rate (OPR) in March.
In year 2009, when the OPR was at a historical low of 2%, the borrowers used to pay only up to 2.85% interest rate for a new foreign car. That’s the reason I can have the lower loan interest rate for my car.
