Are you sick of buying a car that doesn’t last long? there are some car dealers that try to cover up a dodgy car with a botch job but at Journee Autos they decided to tell their customers the truth about a rusty old car.
Amazingly after they advertised the car on their Facebook page within 24 hours it was sold, it just goes to show that some car dealers that tell the truth still sell their cars.
The salesman even quotes that the car “has rust” and “that there is nothing special about this car”.
Ever since the ad went viral the company has had many calls from radio stations and local car dealers.
Are you looking for less interest in your next loan? Is it for a car? House, or personal use….well keep reading because in this article I’m going to share 5 tips to get a low interest loan for your next car purchase.
We all know what it’s like to buy a new car and 80% of people in New Zealand don’t have the cash up front.
Many different finance companies and banks are cashing in on the demand for people wanting a loan for whatever reason or needs they have.
If you don’t get your next low interest loan you will end up paying high interest rates forever.
You can literally find a loan for all most anything these days so let me help you with some tips that you can use to get your next loan.
Have a set budget
Yes simple but easy you need to have a focused goal on the exact amount of dollars you are willing to borrow.
Don’t forget every dollar you borrow against your loan you will be paying interest on top of that back to the finance company.
Have a limit on your repayments
Depending on your budget you want to have a set amount every week that you are willing to pay for your loan repayments.
Usually most finance companies will suggest to make lower repayments because the longer the loan you take out the more money they make.
Usually if your repayments are higher than the less your interest will be over a shorter term as well.
Which finance company offers the best interest rate that is suitable to your budget.
You can easily do this over the phone ring around to different finance companies and ask them about their interest rates.
However most finance companies will ask you to come in because they know once you are in the door it’s a step closer for them to sell you their products.
You don’t need to go in you can simply do most of your research over the phone.
Just remember there lots of competing companies willing to sign you up at the drop of a coin.
Do your research
You can easily find most finance companies on google or other review sites and social media, or better yet you can go to their company’s site.
You want to look at their services,
How much can you borrow? Can you apply online? If you have a brief look over their website, how fast can they approve your loan? Do you need a deposit? Can you get a loan with no deposit?
I took a brief look over this finance companies website and here’s some cool things I found out about them.
They offer fast approval, no deposit and one click application online to get your finance.
One of the best things I thought was convenient was the fact that they offer a no deposit loan as well.
A further in depth scan of the site called cf2u I see that they can help most people out in any financial situation which include bankruptcy, mortgage arrears defaults judgments late or missed payments
So when you are looking for a low interest loan just remember a few simple things, remember to go in with a set budget and a set amount of repayments you’re willing to pay. Pick the company with the best and preferably lowest interest rates. Most important research the company you are looking to get finance with and make sure you are happy with them.
Which second hand car dealer in Auckland should you choose?
Finding out which car dealer you want to pick when you are looking to buy your next new/used car.
First you want to research the car dealer.
Most car dealers are members of MTA which means that they must comply with strict code of conduct to ensure they operate the business with good ethics and according to the consumers guarantee act.

All car dealers have to comply with government conduct of code which means they are not allowed to mis represent any advertisements or car sales.
What are you looking for exactly?
You need to a have plan, a plan where you can decide what car you actually want, it will help if you decide on a make, model and year of the car you want.
Also have a set budget because the salesmen will try to add value to your deal and increase your budget with more benefits and sales tactics. (that’s what they are trained to do.
You want to be fully aware of exactly how much you plan to spend when you’re looking for your next car, so this includes knowing your budget make and model of the car, what steps to take if the car breaks down within the next 7-30 days, does the consumers guarantee act apply?. What are the repayments with finance and how much is the interest etc etc. What’s the best price you can get for your trade-in, all these steps can help you to get the best deal for your next car.

Research the company: you will want to check out the companies history you can do a search on Facebook or social media if they have had a bad deal in the past someone will say something about it.

If you’re looking to buy a new car from the best car dealers in Auckland then you really only have 2 options
You can buy privately or you can buy from a car dealer.
The benefits of buying from a car dealer are consumer restricted meaning that car dealers have to abide by certain rules.
The downside if you are buying privately, is that the seller is not responsible for any faults of the vehicle once you buy the car and you are buying on a as is where is basis.
Yes if you are buying a car privately you will get it cheaper because car dealers have a window price that they have to sell the car for.
Here’s some tips you can use when you are buying from the best car dealers in Auckland:
- Check the paint work, you can stand on the corner of the car look straight down to see if the car has any dents or paint imperfections.
- Check that the car has a current warrant of fitness (wof) have a look at the wof label and see it’s expiry date.
- If the wof has it’s expired you may want to think to yourself, why is this person selling the car?
- Check to make sure all the lights are working properly and inspect the lenses as well for any cracks or imperfections as lenses are so expensive.
- Check the tires and make sure they are in good condition and have plenty of tread, tires can cost $100 or more brand new.
- Looking inside the car at the car’s interior inspect the dash for cracks the door cards damage the roof lining isn’t sagging.
- While checking the interior what does the car smell like? Does it smell like someone has been smoking inside the car?
- Next you want to turn the car’s ignition on check all the warning lights are on and that they turn off once the car is running after you start it.
- Warning lights on the dash are important because they can indicate if the car has problems with it’s brakes engine or electrical circuits.
- Once you started the car obviously you want to take the car for a test drive.
- When you are taking the car for a test drive you want to make sure that you can’t hear any funny noises like rattling or rubbing.
- While you are driving you can turn the car left and right to see if the car’s wheel alignment is straight.
- Usually if the car tends to pull to one side more then the other it indicates that the car will need a wheel alignment.
- As you are driving the car you want to check that the all the gears in the transmission are changing smoothly this will indicate a good gearbox.
- When you are pushing the brake pedal it should go down smoothly but if you feel the brake pedal pushing your foot back up this can indicate that there could be a problem with the brakes.
One of the biggest problems when you are buying from the best car dealers in Auckland, is that most customers and people are not technically minded.
When you are buying a car you want to seek expert advice you pay a couple hundred dollars to most mechanic places to get a full inspection done on your car.
It’s definitely worth it in the long run plus saves you the time of repairs later.
