Default when to buy a new car ....

Hi

I am in the process of buying a car and as can be expected am all over the place considering the various options

when is a good time to buy ...some people say march is better since sales guys need to meet their year end quotas and hence better discounts ....VS buying now ....VS buying a 2007 mnf ...

thx

If you are looking for the best *deals*, November / December see dealers offering the most discounts, since everyone is holding their purchase for the next model year. For corporates & businesses, March is the time to buy to maximise depreciation benefits.

wait till march 08 and then plunge in.if you are looking for a sedan then march is the best time for buying,else you can look for dealers having 2007 models stock also.

What about the impact of the budget and any of the WTO commitments on duty reductions (if any)? Any one tracking what is likely to happen or what the industry bodies are pitching for and got some reassurance from the Finance ministry?

This time will be a people friendly budget. I don't think the FM will raise any taxes or add any taxes in this budget. The customs duty will come down as per the agreement with WTO. Already there is lot of pressure on inflation and the govt does not want to put more pressure on the same.

Now, coming to point, Buy the cars nearer to the festivals like dusshera/diwali or during december where you will get the year end discounts.
