Features of a BankSA car loan

A BankSA car loan can be used for new and used vehicles which means you have full freedom to explore the type of vehicle you may like to buy. The minimum loan amount for a BankSA car loan is generally $3000 and the maximum can range from $40,000 to $80,000 depending on the type of loan you take out. The loan term will similarly vary depending on whether you choose a fixed or variable rate loan. Fixed rate loans can be taken out over one to five years and variable loans over one to seven years.

 All BankSA car loans have fees that are charged on application and then an ongoing monthly fee. For customers who are considering the unsecured car loan from BankSA there is a redraw facility that can be used for a small fee. This could be a useful feature for those who are planning on making extra repayments to the loan and may need access to the cash at a later time.
