What an auto loan can do for you?

Picture this: you arrive to work late and show up in your best haggard self. You don’t need to tell your boss what happened, one look at your windswept hair and sweaty shirt is enough for them to know you’ve conquered Metro Manila traffic and commute today. Sometimes you wonder, “Why won’t I just get a car?” Then you look at your bank account and remember the reason why.

But should you wait until you’ve saved up enough money for a car, even if you really need one now? This could be you:

  • New parent with a growing family - an infant and/or a toddler
  • Son or daughter with an ailing parent or parents
  • A good driver who wants to use their driving skills to earn money ASAP

Whether it’s for personal or business use, you don’t need to wait until your car piggy bank’s already full before purchasing a car. You can do it today with an auto loan.

An auto loan is an unsecured loan from a bank or a financial institution specifically for automobiles. It’s a good option for those who need a car but can’t afford to pay in full since it offers loan terms ranging from 12 to 60 months. It comes with an interest rate ranging from 4.6% to 7.2%, depending on the bank or financial institution of your choice.

Before you determine your loan term, find out first how much you can give for the downpayment. Auto loans require a downpayment of 20% to 50% of the car amount. From there, you can pick your ideal loan term and monthly amortization.

Car loans aren’t exclusive to new vehicles as secondhand cars have a place in it as well although not all banks accept secondhand cars for their auto loan.

Tips on How To Get Approved for an Auto Loan


Check if you are eligible for a loan

The eligibility criteria should be the first thing you’ll look at to see if you’re qualified to apply for an auto loan. From there, you can decide if you’ll proceed with the application or if you’ll wait a while until you’re qualified (e.g. your salary is below the minimum annual income requirement).


Make sure to submit all the requirements

Make a checklist of all the requirements you’ll need to submit so that you’ll be handing over a complete set of documents. Don’t worry, the bank will inform you if there are missing documents but submitting complete requirements on the first instance will speed up the application process.


Borrow only what you can afford to pay

Some auto loan applicants get rejected because their intended loan amount doesn’t match their monthly salary. To make sure your application gets approved, your monthly amortization should match your monthly salary and target loan term. If you can’t afford your target loan amount after doing the math, try adjusting your loan term, loan amount, or consider buying a more affordable car.

Security Bank Auto Loans FAQs

An auto loan is a secured loan for cars only. No other loan purpose is allowed since the collateral for this type of loan will be the car you’re planning to purchase. Since there's collateral involved, interest rates are lower compared to a personal loan. On the other hand, most personal loans offered by banks and other lending institutions are unsecured loans. Since there’s no collateral involved, personal loans have higher interest rates, and banks and lending institutions are stricter compared to car loans.

Both an auto loan and a personal loan have fixed interest rates and loan terms and require a monthly payment until the end of the loan payment.  

Security Bank Auto Loan can finance today’s top car brands such as Toyota, Ford, Honda, Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Suzuki, among others.

Auto loan payments will be through an Automatic Debit Arrangement (ADA) on your Security Bank account. If you don’t have a Security Bank account yet, you’ll have to open an account once your application has been approved. If you already have a Security Bank account, you’ll need to fill out and submit an ADA enrollment form before you start your auto loan repayments.
