Such competition leads to issue involving customer satisfaction regarding the Islamic financing products and the efficiency of the services offered. Thus, the aims of this paper is to investigate the linkage effect of service quality (efficiency) on customer satisfaction and customer loyalty of Islamic automobile financing in Malaysia. Survey data was collected from 584 walk-in customers of selected bank outlets in the state of Selangor, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
