True many dealers take advantage of this corporate discount. They are not very transparent in their dealings and many a times dont offer the full amount of corporate discounts to the customer.

Hmmm - maybe I shouldn't feel bad at all about Hyderabad's Honda dealers in this regard. Well, except for the fact that one of them did quote a higher discount but rolled back the advantage after booking saying they saw the communication from Honda late. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and didn't cancel the booking.

At the insistence of some of my friends, I went to TD the new Fluidic Verna. They didn't have any car for the TD (not surprisingly) and told me I will have to wait for 15 days for a TD (!). The diesel had a waiting period of 4-5 months, but the petrol will be available within 10-12 days of booking.

Asked for the 1.4 VTVT, and this is what they quoted -

Ex-showroom Price - 7,15,133/-
Incidental Charges - 4,000/-
Registration Charges - 52,468/-
Insurance - 24,652/-
Other Charges - 3,000/- (I forgot what this was for)

Total - 7,99,253/-

No offers, no accessories.

The SP said the car didn't need any separate accessories as it came packed with almost everything, and the only thing they could throw in the deal was the assurance that the car will be available with me within 2 weeks of my booking.

Maybe it's better to wait till this initial euphoria dies down and the festival season kicks in.

Attitude Galore! I think it's wise to wait for the initial euphoria to die down. When i went to the Hyundai showroom not to long ago, to check out an i10 AT for my wife. I casually asked about the Fluidic verna. The sales rep from him humble i10 negotiations turned into Mr. ALL MIGHTY! he said that he has no brochures of the same. and that if i even wanted to see the car forget TD it i would have to go to their other dealership which is on the other side of town.

All this after recently picking up a i20 from the same dealership within the family.
as i said in the opening of this post.
ATTITUDE GALORE!

Indeed. When I casually mentioned about the ultra-light steering of the i20 and asked if it was present in the ANHV too, he became so defensive about the car that he started on me. I calmly told him that I have been TDing several cars for the past few months, and I am a Team-BHP forum member and I speak from some experience (the limited "gyan" that I have picked up so far ). Left my card with him and told him to call me once a car is available.

That didn't stop him though - "Aam public yeh sochti hai...blah blah blah". He kept on droning. I just got up and walked out. If he calls back, he will be getting a piece of my "aam public" mind, for sure.

These guys have no idea how much of a damage they are creating to the brand image.

This is something which acts as the first filter criteria when I go to a car showroom. If the staffs act pricey, I will let them know my thoughts and walk off. They better know that we are there to enquire on expensive purchases (whether it is a Nano or a Jaquar), and they better give that respect to the customer.

exactly. i was actually going to pay a booking amount for the i10.
But this sort of attitude put me off. I was expecting a completely different reaction from the guy. usually when you go to a showroom and inquire about a small hatch and then move up the ladder to a bigger car. The sales rep is extremely happy and pushes even harder to seal the deal for the bigger car. But instead this guy put me off so badly, that i did not take out that cheque book. I always think to myself, if the sales experience is poor what will the service experience be like. Not a thumb rule, but having a bad sales experience is a huge put off for me.

I wasn't even thinking about the ANHV.

Right now I am in the process of finalising a car (most probably a hatch) and I have zeroed in on the Jazz, Polo or the Punto. No Hyundais, no Tata cars for me, I had decided. Several of my friends who own a Hyundai (Santro, i10, i20) had seen the ANHV and adamantly insisted that I should go check it out in the flesh, and so I went.

A regrettable decision in hindsight. What this experience did was put me off Hyundai even more.

Btw, that last 3,000/- listed under "Other Charges" for the ANHV 1.4 VTVT was for Teflon Coating.

From your list i highly recommend the jazz. Its extremely refined. Rev friendly. And extremely spacious and accomodating on the inside. Especially with those magic seats.

@Mdsaab I would like some advice from you about how to negotiate with these Concorde folks. They don't budge an inch..I mean they give some corp discount and the monthly special but no effort other than that..
I am set on getting manza aqua qdjet and I just got my loan approved as well.. So looking to finalize it in the next few days !

I too tried for a TD of the (Fluidic) Verna. One showroom outright said that they don't have TD vehicles. That the company didn't provide them with it . The other was a bit better. Said that they send their vehicle to the yard at 5:30pm for washing etc and one would have to visit the showroom (preferably with an appointment).

When I finally did manage to reach by 5:00pm one day (after appointment), they were only willing to give a 2 km TD! The Sales guy alongwith was scared of even asking his seniors about a longer drive. Was not given the number of the Manager. Even the reception would not give it. Said he is not on his seat and that they don't have the managers number!!!!! (what if the showroom had a theft or fire?- would they not get in touch with him?). We had halted the car 1km from the showroom.

Eventually at my extremely firm persuasion (and annoyance and making ample noise) three guys from the showroom turned up at our car (I think they feared that I'd take it for a longer TD even if they protested ). The Team Leader came on the TD with us. And gosh! His attitude. Almost felt I was traveling with the MD of Hyundai. Constantly on calls. Could hardly care less about the 'customer'. Was totally putting me off, but I tried to focus on what I was there for - the TD.

(If there are good choices, the customer will walk away. Come on Ford, you are getting an opening for the NF to slide in!)

Eventually it was a long enough TD. About 10kms. If you are still inclined to read about it, you could do so at :

Write up: - This one is more detailed.

Point wise: (Choosing a Spacious Diesel Sedan upto 12L)

Booked a Skoda Yeti a few days ago. Following are the price details :
Ex-Showroom (New Delhi) - Rs. 16,73,000
Additional Taxes - 30,000
Skoda Shield - 58,000
UP Registration - 1,25,000

Got a Corporate Discount of Rs. 35,000 and a waiver on the above-mentioned taxes.
Total On-road price comes to Rs. 18,26,000.

Have not been offered any other discounts or special deals. Skoda Sales was extremely professional and well-spoken. They took us a little granted after we paid the booking amount though. But I guess most car dealers are like that.

P.S.: If you're buying a Skoda, do ask for the Skoda Celebrations discount.
