Congrats, I guess all is well when it ends well. As long as you are satisfied with the car, the showroom experience or lack thereof will be quickly forgotten. Wish you many happy miles ! Quite surprised that no discounts were given , not that the XUV is selling is bucketloads. I would have expected there to be some solid discounts offered. Anyways, have fun with your new car.

Was searching for a used vehicle for better half. Initially she was insisting that she learn to drive a manual. So we almost finalized a deal on a Ford Figo 1.5D. I already have an Ecosport 1.5D, and I could only imagine the fun a Figo with same engine would be. Later somehow automatics came into picture, and one thing led to another, and here we are with our Maruti Ignis AMT. What started with a budget of strictly less than 4 lakhs, almost ended up at 4.3 lakhs, only to shoot back to 5.8 lakhs.

Type: Pre-owned
Make : Maruti
Model : Ignis
Variant : Delta
Fuel : Petrol
Transmission: Auto - AMT
Model: 2019, April
Kms on ODO: 10,500
Booking Date : 23-Nov-2020
Booking Amount: INR 5K
Delivery Date : 28-Nov-2020
Dealer & City : True Value,Chennai
Price: 5.8L
Warranty: Existing 3.5 years + 1 year True Value's (Post completion of existing one)
Freebies: Keychains, Perfume, Idol, Car wash kit
Accessories: None

As expected, it has ended by like this. No delivery on end of November. Worst part is that the dealer is clueless on when it will be, which means it has not even shipped yet. They are now asking me to escalate to M&M customer care (what an advice!). And customer care as usual responded with an apology email and said they will reach out. No one reached out for the past 2 days.

Welcome to Mahindra club is it?

Any suggestions?

Hi, I like this color.

I recently drove one but that was a manual version. I would say few things that clearly impressed me
- Suspension
- Easy to drive through tight narrow streets
- Absolutely quiet engine while idling
- Excellent rear space

Actually it was zippy.. probably the pushed out wheels help the planted feel.

Recently got married, and both of us wanted a car but the plan was to rely on our Electra for one more year. After all we'd gone everywhere on it in college, so what difference is one year going to make?

What we did not factor in is the change marriage brings. It is possible to go for chai 50km away from college. However it is not possible to haul luggage to and from her house when the in-laws stuffed us with snacks and whatnot.

We decided to prepone the decision and within 2 weeks of tying the knot we booked a Kia Sonet.

I fell in love with it and the Seltos right when they released, and to my joy the finances worked in our favor.

Make: Kia
Model: Sonet
Variant: HTK+
Fuel: Petrol
Color: Intense Red

The booking process was ok, but the amount of pressure the dealer puts on their insurance is insane. Going as far as to call it compulsory, I'm still wondering if fighting to get our own will be worth the trouble. They've quoted 35k in Chennai, while a buddy of mine in Tata AIG, Chennai, assured me he could get me the same at 27k.

However I'm reading a lot of instances where people are getting their no-cash claims rejected, or in some cases the booking getting delayed due to squabbling about the insurance. What are your thoughts?

Other than that bit, I'm just raring to go. It's already been 2 weeks since booking, and the waiting period is apparently 6-8 weeks. As it's my first car, I'm literally counting the days until I get my baby.

Make : Tata
Model : Nexon
Variant : XZ+
Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date : 3 Nov 2020
Color : Tectonic Blue
Expected Delivery Date : 6-8 Weeks from Booking
Dealer & City : Prerna Motors Bangalore
Freebies : Mud Flap Door Visor (Had to negotiate a lot for this)
OTR: 1117395/- Excluding Insurance

I first approached Korpex motors, Requested some accessories (Door Visor, Car Cover and Scuff Plate) as Freebies, which was straight forward got rejected.

Later booked from Prerna motors.

Dealership has quoted 56K for insurance, however they have no issue If I purchase the insurance from outside.

Regarding Insurance,I have received a quote from Acko for 27,811/-(Including GST) which includes below benefit.

OD
Zero Dep
Consumable
RSA
Engine Protect Cover
Invoice Cover


As I am planning to buy insurance from outside and very first time I will be buying insurance for a new car, Request anyone to kindly help me to know that, for a new car when I have to buy the insurance, is it after car registration? Or after PDI? And what information I have to share with Insurance company. (Little worry about it, will it be a hassle free experience?)

Or should I buy insurance from Dealership itself after negotiation.

Cousin is booking a car and we are taking insurance from outside (with Acko)

You will have to give the Engine and Chassis number to Acko

The insurance needs to be done before car goes for registration (as mentioned by both acko and hyundai dealership). PDI can happen before registration and insurance.

If the dealership matches the quote then go with them or else no need.

Hope it helps

Ask the dealer to provide the break up. Take a look at what add ons they have included. Ask them to remove what you don't need. They usually match to what you get outside. They must have added almost all of the addons available, by default.

Same here - the 50k cash discount + 15k corporate discount + 25k additional on exchange (if any) seems to be the standard discount offered on Rapid this month - I have been enquiring for the Ambition/Onyx AT trims here in Bangalore. Though I believe once we sit across the table, maybe a little more can be squeezed out. Rider plus AT is completely stocked out as per the dealer and apparently there is going to be a 2.5-3% price hike across variants from Jan'21 - so they're pushing for higher trims and choose within available colours this month itself. Is this a tactic generally employed by dealers to push existing inventory during year end or is a genuine price hike expected, can somebody comment if they have any more info on this..?

I booked it on 12th November. my wife had insisted on this date being Dhanteras so instead of gold i booked Sonet. The waiting period is as usual 6-8 weeks, and I am in regular touch with the SE to update me on the delivery status. Keen to buy a 2021 model which the SE informed would be available only after Jan 15th of 2021.
