  • Fuel

With skyrocketing petrol price, everybody is talking diesel cars. Does buying a diesel car really make sense? Yes, if you drive long kilometers regularly. Remember, diesel cars require more servicing compared to petrol driven cars. Here is a formula for quick reference.

Minimum kilometers for breakeven in 1 year = (Price difference between petrol and diesel cars + cost of regular servicing in a year)/ (price difference of a liter of diesel and petrol)

Don’t consider first year servicing cost as that comes free most often with new cars or certified old cars. Try to know “what’s the regular servicing cost on the model from second year". Ask that to any registered service center.

easy Car EMI

  • EMI

It’s an area loan agents always try to scam you. Remember, EMI is inversely related with repayment period but directly related with interest rate and principal loan amount. Remember;

1. Always calculate EMI per lakh basis. It helps to benchmark against different interest rates.

2. A part of your EMI goes into repaying loan amount. Always go for monthly adjusted car loan for better valuation.

3. Never believe agents on face value. Judge them with online independent EMI calculators

4. Bargain with multiple lending companies for best deal on loans.

  • Service history & Environmentally friendly:

Good service is always appreciable, if you willing to choose any kind of brand do check with its service history.It will give you an idea about how they are serving and solving their customers problems.Its really essential things to check to avoid future maintenance problems.
