Car Loans have made it easier to own cars. However one can get the best deal from a car loan if one is aware of a few things.
1. Interest rate for auto loan varies depending on various factors like
Credit (CIBIL) score of the borrower: A bad credit history/score could mean higher interest rates
Amount of loan applied for: Lenders usually finance 80-100 per cent of the ex-showroom price as a loan for a new car
Make of the car: Different cars have different interest rates
Second hand cars normally carry a higher rate as compared to new cars
Tenure for which the loan is being applied for: Car loan has a maximum tenure of 7 years for a new car
2. Inquire if there is any Prepayment penalty : if one wants to pay for the remaining amount before the end of the tenure, there could be a prepayment penalty on it. It could range between 3-5% of the outstanding loan amount.
3. One can negotiate on the Processing fees : Processing fee is negotiable and some lenders might even agree to waive this.

The amount of the loan depends upon:
The cost of the vehicle
The type/model of car (standard/premium)
The percentage financing offered If you are buying a new car, you can get up to 90% financing but some banks have a limit beyond which they do not offer loans.
If all the required documents are in order, your process moves fast. You need to submit requisite documents like salary slip, tax returns, proof of residence, bank statements etc. The processing will take between 2 to 7 days.
Yes, to banks, your credit profile is the most important factor as they will consider it before funding you. Your credit profile tells banks if one is able to and intends to pay back the loan.
The components of credit profile are age, profession/occupation, income/financials, previous credit history etc.
Once you have signed the agreement with the loan provider, the EMI cannot be altered. So only after you are satisfied with the EMI agreed upon with the banks, sign the dotted lines. However you can pre-pay the loan amount in which case there will be some penalty.
Yes, you can pay-off your car loan before the tenure is up by pre-paying your loan amount. But there may be certain rules regarding the pre-payment that your bank may have. Also you may have to pay a small penalty, normally, a percentage of the loan amount that remains outstanding.
Yes you can change the tenure and amount of the loan. But this would imply that the interest rate and the amount of installment will change accordingly.
NO. You cannot sell the car unless you repay the loan. An NOC is required from the banks before you can sell the car.
Yes, in some cases you can. You need to inform your bank in advance. This should only be for a few days and you will have to pay delayed payment charges.
Delaying your installments frequently may affect your credit profile and might make further borrowing not only difficult but costly too. However, in some rare circumstances, if you delay an installment, most banks would charge you a delayed payment charge, as high as 3%, compounded monthly.
Most banks do not finance car-accessories other than those which are factory fitted like air-conditioners. Some may however fund music-systems and other such expensive accessories.
After the last payment is made, get the lien of the bank on your car cancelled. The bank will issue Form 35 with a covering letter (NOC) to the RTO for canceling their name from the R/C book. A similar NOC will also be issued to the insurance company requesting for the deletion of their name from the policy.
In the event of an accident, the first step is to inform the insurance company. The company then sends a surveyor to assess the extent of damages to the car. Your claim is then processed and paid directly to the banks, unless you have taken an NOC from the banks, in which case the payment will be made by the insurance company in your favor. The bank normally gives you an NOC if you are regular in your payments. In case of a complete loss, the bank would receive the payment directly from the insurance company.
