    benefited from this but the bank's rep as well. You're right that the reason we never take note of this is because it is

    already integrated with the interest rate given by the bank.

    BTW, metrobank gave me 15% for 36% mos.

    *yourman_2nd, thanks for your inputs.

    My bank quoted me 15% OMA for 36 months, but after my Bank Manager spoke to a couple of Chevy dealers, they're adding 10% DI which is ridiculously high and opportunistic. Just to get a TBZ unit.

    Normal daw is between 1% to 3%. So my trusted Bank Manager discouraged me to go ahead with it as it is like daylight robbery daw.

    Ending is I still got 15% OMA for 36 months, plus 0.5% DI, but totally different brand.

    So be careful with very high DI, you are paying every bit of it.

    Considering the low interest regime at this time, the car loan rates are still high.

    There's also a 3.6L V6 petrol version available in some markets, with 239hp * 6600RPM and 329Nm * 3200RPM, only available with automatic transmission.

    The V6 engine is already available in Latin-American versions of the Trailblazer, but in spite of the good power that engine is quite pointless. Has less torque than a 2.0L turbodiesel Captiva

    Malakas uminom ng gas ang V6 hindi magiging uso dito. The Montero is available with 3L V6 220ps, 28.1N-M engine, less expensive but considering the difference in cost between diesel and gasoline it is not viable. Maybe through the lifetime of the vehicle we will spend 1million Pesos more for fuel.

    Not forgetting a petrol V6 would need an overhaul way sooner than a Diesel 4-cylinder...

    Sir, only the SA and his Manager benefits from the Dealer's Incentive (DI). The Bank will not get a centavo from the DI, that's is why the Banker of sir ano discouraged him from getting the TBLZR considering the ridiculously high DI of 10%. Dapat dyan sa dealer na yan ikulong yang SA/Manager. Talo pa bumbay sa interest.

    Sir, the 15% One Moth Advance (OMA) for 3 years is low na compared with the 3% per month Interest of Credit Card Companies. But with the prevailing Treasury Bills of BSP now at less than 1% p.a., the rates should be around 3% for 12 mos or less than 10% for 36 mos.

    even sa USA, carmakers now are considering of putting diesel engines in their cars to improve FC even if diesel is more expensive than unleaded there. cars equipped with diesel engines have far more better resale value too compared with their gasoline fed brothers. yun nga lang, you pay a little more during PMS.
