  1. We have just been deciding upon buying a car this diwali. Yes you are right, not every person can afford to pay the full payment upfront and car loans come very handy. I wasnt aware that you have to have some collateral to avail this loan or that the car acted as a security. Its a good to know information for me before i start looking for loans. Thank you.

  2. Car loans can be availed both by the banks and other financial agencies. At times even the car company launches schemes for easy payment with 0% interest. So what is the difference between them exactly which is more reliable? Purchasing a car after house is the most sought after dream of mostly all Indians.
