Why Pre-approved Car Loan? Benefits of Getting a Pre-approved Car Loan

Purchasing pre-owned cars offers great value for money and promises almost immediate car ownership. The usual way Malaysians purchase a car is by getting a car loan or a hire purchase loan. However, the loan approval process can be time consuming, confusing, and quite stressful.

Most financial institutions in Malaysia offer a conventional car loan with different interest rates and repayment terms. The waiting period for loan approval may differ based on the institution and your application is at risk to be rejected if certain criteria are not met. In other words, the buyers would not be able to drive home their desired car immediately.

Moreover, given the current economic situation in Malaysia and rising inflation, banks are now more cautious when approving car loans resulting in higher hire purchase rates. Thus, buyers are finding it increasingly difficult and costly to obtain a car loan today[1].

Shopping with a pre-approved car loan in hand can help make the car buying process easier, faster and stress-free. It is a less-discussed concept in Malaysia, but it might be the ideal loan option for you. Read till the end to find out how to get a pre-approved car loan in Malaysia!

With this knowledge, you can browse for cars that are within your budget and affordability.
