Got an offer from Honda in Coimbatore for an offer of upto 1 lakh for city if booked on last saturday. Was no where near a PC to give this msg earlier. If not same offer one can atleast bargain for better offers.

how can they invoice the vehicle in Dec itself when there is a 2 month waiting period for the 4x4 vehicle to be manufactured. Do they expect you to pay them in full and 8 weeks in advance? If so this is unrealistic on their part. I am sure you can push them for the 50K discount considering that the dealer will be keen not to lose a customer to another dealer.
Yes even though they may use in house insurance agents, you can still buy insurance with your preferred company and claim your no claim bonus too.
And ref the lower end of accessories like floor mats etc I am sure you can push them to give them to you free. But frankly it is of little consequence - a set of simple floor mats if bought at Reliance AutoZone costs as little as Rs 500-600 for decent quality!

No other freebies on Scorpio, as I asked for floor mats and other standard fitments (yet to get the full list) FREE!

Thanks again for answering to my post. Below are the answers I received from the MPL representative. They are typically looking out for customers who are ready to sign along the dotted lines without any questions asked. I do NOT think it will happen with me. I enquired about PDI for a 4x4 and he said, "NO as the vehicle will be custom made for you and thus no PDI" as if I will have to accept any piece of junk M&M sends through, just because I asked for 4x4.

My answers below is not to create any offense, I will try hard till I receive whatever I can.

Dealer representative is not even interested to follow up on my requirement of 4x4 and they are hence not offering anything.

Same answer as above. Not interested and not even telling me how I can get the discount.

I am sure you can push them for the 50K discount considering that the dealer will be keen not to lose a customer to another dealer.

No calls after I requested for booking 4x4, both MPL and Zulaikha. Will have to call them again asking the progress.

Yes even though they may use in house insurance agents, you can still buy insurance with your preferred company and claim your no claim bonus too.

NO is the big answer, they say that the discounts are worked out between M&M and Dealers and we poor customers have to pay whatever they ask us for.

And ref the lower end of accessories like floor mats etc I am sure you can push them to give them to you free. But frankly it is of little consequence - a set of simple floor mats if bought at Reliance AutoZone costs as little as Rs 500-600 for decent quality!

The answer given to me by the rep, when asked for freebies: ha ha (laughs), over the 50K discount you need freebies? and gives me a cheap look

My dad booked a Honda Jazz today at Ring Road Honda.

The dealer said the discount is 50,000 on Jazz and Jazz Select. He haggled a bit, spoke to the manager and got the discount to 70,000.

Folks,

Any idea on Year End offers from Toyota. Was planning to go for a Innova, preferably 2011 model, since its year end and lose a year on model if we go for 2010. Checked with Amana Toyota, Calicut seems no offer till date has been aware of. Let me know if anyone get latest updates.

I heard we can get 2011 model in Jan only, rather the old way of getting new models and register only after new financial year starts, say Apr 2011. Any info.

maybe you should buy your vehicle from SKS auto in Salem and get it regd in Madras. Ask them for a BS4 4WD - I am sure they will be more obliging.

I think you should write to the Marketing People at Mahindra with a serious complaint about the attitude of MPL and whoever else.
Are there no other dealers in Madras?

What about dear old India Garage in Mount Road? They used to be first class as far as I remember!

My friend took delivery of Honda Jazz Select. He could squeeze Rs. 80000 from Crystal Honda, Pune. Official discount 55000. Corporate discount: 15000. Free Insurance. He did not go for in any free goodies like sunfilm etc and finally he said it worked out to be Rs. 80000.

That's huge! AFAIK it the highest discount on any sub 10L vehicle which is not being phased out.
People seem to be really taking advantage of December offers.

By the way I visited Sahyadri last weekend, they are offering discount of 35k on Scorpio SLE provided,
  • Registration & insurance is done through them.
  • Invoicing should happen in December itself.

Should Try with SKS, but I will have to drive down the vehicle from Salem before registration (on a temp registration). I hope that is how the process would be?

There are three dealers here at Chennai - India Garage, MPL Automobiles, and Zulaikha Motors. Getting in touch with India Garage for the second time today or tomorrow.

Yes, should write to M&M, but when I posted on M&Ms wall, the very next minute my post was deleted from Facebook. So now whom should we complaint to? Not sure
