I wonder why there is so much discrepancy between different dealers. Case in point - I am in the market for a new Ford Figo Diesel TDCI Titanium. I spoke with two dealers, and this is what they each came up with:

Car OTR Price (best possible deal each dealer would give me):
Dealer 1 - 7,02,000
Dealer 2 - 7,06,000

Accessories:
All accessories included with both dealers, including reverse parking sensor.

Comprehensive insurance from both dealers, but does does not include Depreciation Coverage.

Depreciation Coverage Cost (if I want it):
Dealer 1 - said it cost 5,000 but that he will give it to me for a discounted price of 2,000
Dealer 2 - said it costs 2,000 (this is the actual cost, not discounted price)

3rd & 4th year warranty:
Dealer 1 - 6,800
Dealer 2 - 12,471 (and there's the second difference, and a very major one).

Wonder why Dealer 2 is almost double the price of Dealer 1 for the extended warranty.

Dealer 2 said Dealer 1 has quoted for only the 3rd year and not for the 4th year. I spoke with Dealer 2 again to reconfirm and he said that it is for 3rd and 4th year.

Some more interesting points made by the dealers:

Dealer 1 said that Roadside assistance only covers 50 kms and that anything over 50 kms will still be charged extra. Dealer 2 said it is all-India and no extra charges. Who is right?

Dealer 1 said that 3rd and 4th year warranty is a waste of money and that they recommend NOT buying it.

I am now confused and have the following questions:

1. From whom should I buy the car?

2. Re. Depreciation Coverage, is Dealer 1 basically lying to me about giving me a discounted price while actually charging me the whole price? And should I buy Depreciation Coverage?

3. Extended Warranty - should I buy it? Basically this question will determine which dealer I buy the car from, because Dealer 1 is obviously much cheaper on the extended (3rd and 4th year) warranty.

4. Roadside assistance - should I buy it?

Some more points to help you respond more relevantly to my questions:

1. I plan on doing a lot of long-distance touring in my car, including one around-India trip on the Golden Quadrangle.

2. I will be driving Bangalore-Madras-Bangalore at least twice a month.

Thanks for your patience and assistance.

Cheers

1. the one offering you best rates. but do check the vin before the delivery and make sure that the model is latest.

2. these petty lies are very commom and shud be ignored as long as rate qouted are not higher. zero dep should be taken for new cars in my opinion.

3. I did not go for extended warranty as I intend to modify my car. Also more often than not dealers find excuses to reject the extended warranty claim.

4. for that occasional requirement of actual use of RSA you can pay up the dealer for the service.

Thank you ank.nsit.

Yes, both dealers are in Bangalore, both quotes are for the same trim level (Ford Figo TDCI Titanium), yes, both models are manufactured this month, both cars are White, everything is identical.

I think what you say re. RSA makes sense - it might be cheaper to pay the tow-truck on a case-by-case basis.

Re. extended warranty, I was misinformed - the 6,800 was indeed only for the third year, the dealer called back and said the two-year extension would cost the same as the other dealer.

Therefore, now, there is only a Rs.4,000 difference between Dealer 1 and Dealer 2.

Cheers

Is anyone aware of the on-going discounts on Honda Brio?

I'm looking at the SMT model.

The price being offered in Rajasthan is 5.06 lakhs on-road.

Freebies include:
Free insurance (not bumper-2-bumper) = Rs. 12k
Car cover & mats (after haggling) - will ask for cash discount in lieu of this

Is there any cash discount which can be haggled over this?

You have to admit that this is definately a mouth watering offer from Skoda.

I was one of the first few customers of the Rapid when it was launched and even the top end was absolutely bone dry of features. I love the car, feel like selling my 2 year old car and swapping it with the Ultima, with 5 years tension free ownership

This offer was looking so good that i visited JP Nagar showroom. There is a catch. We need to make downpayment of 6 lakhs if i recall and have to opt for 36 months loan only.

They are offering free insurance of 42K and 10K of additional bonus for corporate. 5 ultima feature as per SA is garmin map, reverse camera, leather seats, ACC if i recall correctly. I did not pay much attention to his words as i have more info from this forum.

Also got to know that ultima package is sent from factory and these guys fit it in service center before delivery. i was not interested in those stickers sunning through the side and on the bonnet. He said since they are sticking it, if i dont need it they can remove it.

Yes I am. I had visited today. I will scan and put the finance scheme shortly. After discounts Ulitma comes at on road price of 12.18 lakhs. I did not press for more discounts as i'm not sure when will i buy.

there are fixed down payment for every slot. but 8% interest is reflecting only on 36 months scheme. for 60 months it will go upto 9.7 or 10% which i'm not sure.

Hey Ajit! Terribly sorry to read your story man. Really sucks to be on the receiving end, especially when it comes to transactions involving big money.

I hope you do take the damn dealership to court and make 'em pay for their crime. I wish you all the best and we'd also like to hear about how it goes.

Good luck, mate!
