Yes. They have to. For my THAR last year, I asked them to match my quote or I get from outside. They did match almost. Mahindra is just one tweet away if you want to escalate the matter and they are very wary of any such escalation. However, my experience suggests to settle this amicably and that helps in the long run unless dealer is hell bent on their quote. This battle needs to be fought as the amount at stake is substantial. Will be around 40K-50K for scorpio.

Did you consider the below? This is from their website or has this been waived off now.

Charges @1% on part payment amount (plus GST) will be levied quarterly in Fixed Interest rate car loan if prepaid within 24 months from the date of disbursement.

I had asked about part payment and was told no option available. Let me check with the dealer again on what is possible. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry, I guess my post was not clear. I was referring to SBI here. There is apparently penalty on part pre payment. Have you considered that in your calculations?

Ok, no there is not. I am currently paying back an SBI auto loan, and there is no part payment fees.

Re: What happened with your Mahindra Scorpio-N Booking?

I suggest all members to take the finances from the banks which provide over draft facility. Although the interest rate could be a little higher (in decimals) but you get the full control on the loan, parking of additional funds and liquidity.

I always has this practice and many banks provide the overdraft facility for Auto loans and home loans. Please explore.

Re: What happened with your Mahindra Scorpio-N Booking?

Booked today Z2 in silver color. White probably has more demand hence hoping with a silver color choice the delivery is quicker.

There was no mention of delivery estimate. How does one check? Is there a portal to log into?

Ill most possibly take a home loan top up which gives you prepayment facility without any extra cost although the interest rate could be 0.5% higher. Also there is no hypothecation on the car this way.

Thanks UD17 for the advise.

Yesterday I did the same (took an OD against FD, with +1% interest rate) when I paid for Verna Nline full option. Waiting for car delivery on Monday.

Re: What happened with your Mahindra Scorpio-N Booking?

I got an email from the dealer few days back stating that the vehicle is in transit and the chassis no allocated vehicle. Chassis no indicates that the vehicle was manufactured in July. Anyone else got VIN\chassis nos?

Mahindra website still shows the vehicle under order under planning for me(several days after the dealer shared the chassis no), so I guess the website updates are delayed by several days...

Mahindra needs to be certainly up its production planning game. Contemplating future course of action as I am definitely not going to wait for almost 2 years to get a new car.
My state of mind...

money in hand & no vehicle insight.

Waiting !!!

Re: What happened with your Mahindra Scorpio-N Booking?

Just checked the insurance quote from HDFC Ergo for my Z8L D AT 4x4 with all required optional add ons which comes to 90k including GST. For similar policy dealer has quoted 1.42L. IDV is considered as 23.38L.

Dealership are asking unrealistic prices for insurance because of the high demand of their vehicles. Plus accessories which have high markup. Same accessories can be bought from m2all.com for nearly Rs 1000 less.
