Loan Singh Features: “This Diwali, I am Buying a Second-Hand Car”



Today, we are doing something different. We are so inspired by some of our borrowers because of their tremendous faith in Loan Singh. We have salaried borrowers who come with such wonderful and inspiring backstories that it gives us, i.e. Loan Singh, great pride in serving those in need. This new section, aptly named as ‘Loan Singh Features’, will cover user case stories (both – fictional & real).

Today’s featurette includes the story of a borrower who wishes to buy his ‘first car’. Let’s assume the applicant to be named ‘Vishal’. He is a salaried individual & knows that he can only afford a second-hand car. With Diwali around the corner, he chose this festive period to be auspicious for making such a grand purchase & hence, applied for a personal loan at Loan Singh.


“It was a long kept dreama 4 wheeler”

Vishal is not alone in having his dream of owning a 4 wheeler fulfilled. There are many of you out there who are yearning to yank that engine and drive through the roads of your destiny. This is the perfect time to do it. A brand new car might seem like a long shot now; but, why not get a second-hand car?


Benefits of a second-hand car

Getting a second-hand car, this Diwali, is a superb decision. Not only are car sellers pampering prospective buyers with offers and discounts, they can also offer a variety of options to choose from.

Competitive price

We all love the scent that emanates from a new car. The immaculate upholstery, 0 kms traveled, sans any fingernail scratches on the outside, etc. is something we love. But, it does not come cheap. The price gap between a used and a new car is huge. You may also argue that the interest rates on new cars are less, but the one-time amount you pay (inclusive of a new paint job, top-up of engine oil, coolant, complete interior and exterior wash, and more) goes easy on your budget. A personal loan can make the average monthly spend further lower.

Depreciated value

New cars immediately lose a portion of their value immediately. The moment a new car is bought, it does not remain new and will be sold as a second-hand. New car owners go through a plethora of emotions when the new car starts acquiring wear and tear while going over Mumbai’s potholes or Goa’s beachside terrain. In the first year, since purchase, new cars lose as much as 40% of their value. For a second-hand car, however, there is much less depreciation. You will lose less money, slowly and will avoid the hit the first owner took.

Insurance cover

No need to scratch your head here, the insurance premium you pay per year for a second-hand car, towards accidental damage, is cheaper. The value of a second-hand car is already depreciated which means you pay a lower premium than what you would pay for a swanky new car.

Less worry

If it is the paint getting chipped-off on gravel, the tyres start getting punctured or some other driver goes off with your mirrors from the opposite side, you don’t feel too much of heartache for a second-hand car. That is why it is suggested you learn driving a second-hand car because the strain on your pockets is less.
