Pro’s and cons of different car repair loans
|Car Loan type
||Whether you choose a secured or unsecured loan, you’re sure to seal yourself a reasonable and affordable deal. Expect to pay anywhere between 6 – 10%
||Miss a payment, even one, and not only will you be charged a late fee, but a strike against your credit history.
||Can be a pretty good option if your first year is 0% or a fairly low interest, but what about the following year? A good option if you plan on repaying your debt within the promotional time-frame.
||Just like a personal loan, expect to suffer the consequences if you miss a payment. Didn’t finish paying the debt within the promotional period? Expect to pay up to 23% the very day after your promotional period has ended.
||Instant dollars (up to $1000) to get you through until your next payday, if you’re running short of a few bucks and especially if you need that repair booked right away.
||Preying on the vulnerable, payday loan lenders offer quick solutions for when you’re at your weakest and need a super fast solution. However, they have the highest rate around. At first glance they may seem comparable to a high credit card at 20%, but you’ve usually only got 2 weeks to pay. If you don’t pay off your entire loan by the agreed time, you will have to pay a further 20% on top. Take another 2 weeks to pay and accrue another 20%.
Why can’t we manually submit our bank statements?
Jacaranda Finance uses the latest in safe banking technology to access a read-only copy of your bank statements. This technology is the reason we don’t need you to send any bank statements. All you need to do is provide us with your internet banking credentials and then our system will be able to obtain read-only copies of your bank statements. This saves you time and effort and it also ensures that we’re getting an accurate representation of your situation. The last thing we want to do is push you further into financial hardship which is why we like to go the extra mile in confirming your ability to pay back your short loans.
Once we have the information that we need, our system will automatically delete your details 2-minutes after you’ve entered them. It’s that quick! There is a non-human element to this which means that no one is able to log into your account and have access to your funds. It is simply that our system will take your credentials as soon as you’ve entered them and quickly grab your bank statements for us to have a look at. This is all done before you even click submit!
The only thing you’ll need to do, prior to applying, is making sure you have internet banking set up. Otherwise, you’re ready to get started with your car repair loans application!
What do Jacaranda loans cover?
Anything you need!
You can use your auto repair loan to fix anything to do with your car. There are three categories of auto repair loans you can apply for with us. These are small personal loans and medium secured personal loans and large secured personal loans. Small personal loans range from $300 to $2,000, are repaid over 12-months and are unsecured (meaning you don’t need to attach an asset for security). Our medium secured personal loans range from $2,001 to $4,600, are repaid over 13 to 24-months and are secured. Large secured personal loans range from $5,000 – $10,000, and are also repaid over 13 – 24 months. Generally, for our secured loans, you’ll need to attach your car, motorbike or caravan to your loans for security.
However, if you wish to attach the car that you are getting repaired to your loan, we will only be able to offer you the amount that the car is worth. Therefore, if your car is worth less than the amount you’ve asked to borrow, we will make you an offer for a smaller amount. If you’re after a bit more information on each type of car repair loans, head to Moneysmart.

Why was my car repair loans application declined?
As we are responsible lenders, we will never approve anyone for a loan that they cannot repay. If your application wasn’t successful it will be because there is some aspect of your profile that expresses to us that repaying your loan would put a strain on your financial situation. It might not have anything to do with having bad credit or because you are on Centrelink.
However, our criteria are always changing and we’re sure your situation is too. Therefore, we always encourage you to try again when the road is a little less bumpy.
