Why Putting the Car Loan on the Home Mortgage is a Bad Idea

With record low home loan interest rates and rising property prices, it can be tempting to increase your home loan when looking to finance your next car.

There are some perceived benefits but also many disadvantages that could result in you adding years and thousands of dollars to your home loan.

Perceived advantages:

  • Loan payments may stay the same
  • A low 'headline' interest rate
  • Quick access to funds

However your gains with this type of finance may be short term and with two of your most important assets (your home and car) you should really be thinking long term, rather than short term.


Over time, the size of the debt, the years added to the loan and the effect of compound interest may result in you paying much more total interest.

Adding your car loan to your home loan can add many years to your total loan. You may also feel like you have never quite paid off your car loan which can also have the effect of feeling like you are ‘stuck’ with your car.

This handy article can provide you with more information why you shouldn't use home equity to buy your new car.

At Credit One, we recommend a separate finance package for your car loan as it allows you greater control over your finance and provides great cost savings.

So instead of talking to your bank about home equity loans or their standardized car finance offer, talk to Australia’s leading car finance broker.

With a panel of over 35 of Australia’s best and most trusted lenders to choose from, you can be confident that you’re making the smartest choice for your next car purchase.
