re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread
 
hey abhishek - congrats on your new car. As far as I remember, the price applicable will be as on the date of delivery and hence if there is a price hike, you may have to bear the increase though if the dealer has provided you with price hike protection then you are safe.

Kindly confirm with the dealer at the earliest.

I had a word with the sales guy but he wasn't sure about it and said he wpuld get back to me.

Unfortunately, you will have to pay the higher price. You will be taking the delivery of your wheels after the price hike so that's why you have to pay that!

I guess what others have suggested is technically right. However, as I read in another thread, Never Say Never. Push your sales guy to provide you with price rise protection try and get it in writing or promised freebies. Try to fool him my saying you have ready delivery from another dealer. They might know stocks of dealers within the city, try to tell them you have ready delivery from Mumbai/Pune (whichever the city the original dealer is not from). Tell him things like the car will go over your budget and you will have to take loan etc. Spend some time eating his head until you give it your best shot. BUT, at the same time be prepared to pay the higher price.

hey Madhok, i already tried that, but the problem is 'none' of the dealers have the Jazz in stock and they know that. And the other thing is that the cars will come in stock post october anyways hence the new price will apply. Anyways i thought 7.80 lakh was very expensive for the Jazz and paying anything over that price would be stupid. So here is what we have now. clap:

Make : Honda
Model : City
Variant : S MT
Booking Date : 29th September
Color : White
Expected Delivery Date : Car is in ready stock,but i am going in for a Dussera delivery
Dealer & City : Linkway Honda, Mumbai
Freebies : Insurance, Mats etc and a Discount on fog lights (paying 6k instead of 22k which they quote is the original price)

Also i get it without the price hike. :Cheering:

Congrats on your booking. AFAIK Brio has two free services 1000 km or 1 month and second one 6 months or 10k. Even beyond that the service cost would be lower.

Suggest you ask them to give you extended warranty instead.

I should have updated this thread much earlier.

Capital Honda (Chennai) offered to invoice me before end of the month (September) so that I can avoid the price hike. Now it could have been just a way to achieve their half yearly target. But end of day, it was win-win. I paid the money on Sep 28th, got my loan sanctioned the same day and the money was transferred to the dealer that day itself.

I just have to pay them 30k more which I plan to pay before registration.

Congratulations on your new possession !! What was on the road pricing for the vehicle ??

Also i see you are installing Llumar films for your new car, is the film tinted ?? Also i understand that the car window should be free of anything sticking onto it, is the dealer giving you some sort of certificate for this one or something ??

If so, i too would rush to get the same onto my cars !! clap:

Thanks Arup. I have haggled a lot with the sales guy at Linkway and am sure they will not agree to an extended warranty. He showed me the service discount coupons and they will apply at specific service intervals for peripheral services like PUC and teflon coating etc.

On Road Price after discount is 5.15 lacs.

In Mumbai, I did not see cops objecting to sun flims so it is not a problem over here. The dealer will not issue any certificate I believe.

Trust me they can easily offer extended warranty. Believe me with Honda all you'd need to pay is engine oil and other consumables (not required unless it is specific). Double check if service discount coupons will cover those.

PUC -since when did PUC certificate get issued by dealers?

Teflon - Its hog wash. Go to 3M center
