Maybe you can bargain on these two charges.

Skoda shield includes 24x7 Roadside Assistance and Extended Warranty.
Extras = Hyp. Charges Rs 100 + TR Fees Rs 100 + Service Fee Rs 50
Logistics and Facilitation Charges = Rs 9990
I have requested for the Skoda Shield cost for Rapid. Will post the same.

In Hyderabad it looks to be Rs 3000-5000 based on the company.

I am given the following price quote of the new dzire vxi by Sanga Automobiles, jaipur.
ex showroom - 5,57,278
RTO amount - 33035
Insurance amount - 16472
Logistic charge - 4500
E.W - 3480
TOTAL - 6,14,765

Is the insurance amount ok? I personally feel that the dealer is quoting a high price. And what are these logistic charges and E.W.
I have got this quote via email.

The insurance amount quoted by the dealers are usually a bit high compared to taking it directly from the insurance company. Try to get a quote directly from the insurance company and you might be able to shave off 1K, that said, the 16K looks reasonable since I had paid 14.5K for my Figo when the ex-showroom price was 5.2L.
Logistics charge is a fixed amount that the dealers levy for the transportation of the vehicle to their yard, and E.W. seems to be Extended Warranty charges for the 3rd year.

Cheers

just called a insurance agent of reliance insurance. He has quoted insurance amount of 14720. Should I go for the insurance given by the dealer or by the agent? Are their any disadvantages of not taking the insurance from the dealer?

There is no problem in going for the insurance outside the dealer. It's always advisable to take an insurance which has a tie-up with the dealer network of your car, so that you can avail cashless claims in the event of any accidents. Otherwise you will have to pay the repair charges from your pocket initially and then claim it from the insurer. That's more headache as you can see, I've experienced it once.

In Delhi the insurance from Maruti provides cashless repair at any dealer across India, for other companies you may not get the same facility.

That said, please haggle a bit on the insurance amount. They get about 30% commission so you can always ask for a 20% discount. What with the car sales down, you may be able to wrangle the discount in Insurance. Best of luck.

Btw as far as discounts are concerned i stll remember ritz had a similar level of discounts in the month of September2011 here in mumbai. Because its sibbling Swift ritz never sets sales charts on fire & mostly been sold with similar levels of discounts.

Is Ritz model upgrade in-line soon by any chance?

Anup

I personally think its a good time to buy the Ritz.
Why?

Petrol
====
The new Ritz will have VVT enhacement as far as the engine is concerned, much like hte New Swift. I am not expecting any other change other than cosmetic changes to the exterior.
The VVT has a slightly better FE than the regular K series (about 0.5-1kmpl difference). But from my experience the VVT is a step down as far as engine performance, specially low end torque is concerned. So if that 0.5 kmpl is more important than the Fun to drive quotient of regular K series, i suggest you wait for new model.

Diesel
====
No change in diesel engine is expected in comparison to the current engine. And i don't think Maruti will be offering 25k discount anymore on the new Ritz - which only has some tweaked front (and same rear).

My advice:
======
For 50k discount on petrol and 25k on DDiS, Ritz is a tremendous value for money, even with new model around the corner.
Go for it!

On diesel Ritz, the breakup of 25k discount is : 10k cash discount and 15k on exchange bonus as said by dealer in Bangalore. Delivery within a week.

Default Re: The "NEW" Car Price Check Thread - Track Price Changes, Discounts, Offers & Deals

I have been shopping around for an SUV in the 10-15 lakh bracket. Choices considered - Safari (LX/GX 4x2), Scorpio (SLE or VLX 4x2 without airbags) and XUV 500 W6 (listed randomly, order of preference to be decided).

Started with Tata (as I own an Indica and have had some personal interaction with Tata dealerships). The offer across 2 of the dealers is roughly the same -[list=1] free insurance (~40K depending on the model), [list=2] exchange bonus (40K),[list=3] some corporate discount (~5K) and,
  1. maybe another 5K for the final push, pitting one dealer against the other etc...
Total discount ~80-90K. Do these prices look good, or should I wait for a while based on the way demand for cars is going southward? Needless to say that everybody on the sales team thinks this is a "never before, never again" offer. They are quite sure that the Storme launch has been deferred to Oct (I thought it was going to be Jun-Jul), and that the old Safari will continue strong in spite of the launch - the usual. Also, I haven't shopped for Safari insurance outside - so some ballpark for insurance figures of a new Safari would be very useful too.

What is more interesting is that I am in the know of 2 Safaris - Dec 2010 VX 4x2 and Dec 2011 EX - which are lying at the stockyard. I have been offered discounts of 3 Lakhs and 2 lakhs respetively for these (inclusive of the discount mentioned on new cars).

I have always believed that it should be quite natural to have one or two such leftovers in the stockyards, but this is first time I have access to them. Need advice on whether it is a smart idea to even look at these, and whether the prices seem justified.

I have never sold a car - even 7/8 year old ones with more than 100K+ on the odo - that I have owned, except while repatriating, and only once purchased a car second hand, that too within family. So resale value is not a huge concern. On the other hand, long term reliability is. My preferences for Safari variants are GX or LX, in that order as of now - depending on zeal for ABS and level of comfort with the money spent. The one accident that I have had till date could have been averted if my Indica had ABS. But if i can have the higher variant at the same price, I wouldn't mind the upgrade.

Etios Liva, GD top end costs 5.92 OTR at Trivandrum. You get 20k/1 year service package free if you buy now. No other offers.

Micra, top end costs 7.33 OTR (IIRC) and you get no freebies as of now! Great package ( sad that there's no ABS)
