Now on its second year, the Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. (Metrobank) brings back the MetroCar Great Rates Sale promo, which will run from July 3 to September 30, 2009. The promo kicked off with a three-day event last July 3 to 5, 2009 at the Power Plant Mall in Rockwell, Makati City.

"From a very successful turnout of the first Sale two years ago, this is very timely given the low interest rates scenario and the new car models that just came out; the desire for people to buy a car is just there," says Wennie Oliveros, head of the consumer lending group of Metrobank.

MetroCar can finance as much as 80% of the net selling price of the vehicle, and offers different packages to meet specific needs. "In line with our thrust of being the trusted partner of our clients, MetroCar addresses concerns on affordability and flexibility. Our rates are very competitive and borrowers have the option to choose repayment terms anywhere from 12 months to 60 months."

"We offer more than an affordable and easy loan package," added Oliveros. "We made loan repayments so much easier with several channels at our client's convenience. A borrower can pay over the counter at any Metrobank branch, through auto debit from his or her Metrobank savings or checking account, or through issuance of post-dated checks."

Customers enjoyed the lowest interest rates at the MetroCar Great Rates Sale event last July 3 to 5, 2009 at the Power Plant Mall, Rockwell, Makati City. Participating car dealers, including Honda Makati, Hyundai Global City, Isuzu Inteco Quezon Ave., Mitsubishi Citimotors, Nissan U.N. Ave., Motor Image Pilipinas (Subaru), Lexus Manila, Inc., Toyota Cubao, Inc. and Toyota Manila Bay, showcased the latest models of their respective brands.

Metrobank is the country's premier universal bank. For more information about the MetroCar Great Rates Sale and other financing programs, visit any Metrobank branch or call 898-8876, 898-8553, or 857-5261, or log on to and
