What discount by ordering a new car?


Recommended Posts

Skywalker

It really doesn't matter what the discount is, buying a new car, since the 'hit' you take when you drive it off the forecourt will be considerably greater.

 

Buying new is a mugs game, a vanity purchase.  There are great deals in the nearly new market, and plenty of repossessions out there.

I haven't purchased a new car before in the Philippines, but where I am from car dealers are less likely to offer a discount if you tell them that you will be paying in cash. They make more money from

A while back I wanted to buy a motorcycle cash on the nail. The salesman had to phone the manager to get permission for a cash deal. Manager was not really interested and was less than helpful. Took m

Yea... I agree with Smokey... let's see some hard facts, some names, some contact #'s... it's pretty easy to sit and badmouth a topic when you don't have any skin in the game.  Personally, I think the OP has a very valid question and one I've posted before without any meaningful responses.  Is Skywalker's just another one of the meaningless digs? Huh? How about it, Skywalker?

Well, that's an easy one.  I bought a 2 year old Fortuner with less than 10,000 kilometers on the clock, in immaculate condition, top of the range.

 

Retail brand new is about 1.7 million pesos.  The first buyer bought it through car finance, and couldn't make the payments, so it was repossessed.  I bought it from the finance company.  My saving over the new price was 500,000 pesos.

 

Still think buying a new car makes sense?  Meaningless dig?  Really?

mmmm i read all of Smokeys posts in this thread and he didnt say anything related to the facts that you are disputing.   I dont know how many cars you have bought in the Phil but I have bought several, and my experience has been the exact same as Skywalkers.  In fact like Skywalker  I also bought a 2 year old fortuner-- for 500,000 less than the new price  [ but then Skywalkers only had 10K kilometers and mine had 33K, but I also had a 140,000 chrome package included .

 

You say you want phone numbers ?  I suggest you read the ads in Sulit and Ayos dito - you will find lots of phone numbers of cars for sale there.

In many markets  I agree 100% with this. But in the Philippines you have to worry about vehicles with a flooding history.  I prefer to buy a low mileage 12 -18 month vehicle But the used price doesn't drop enough in the Philippines to make it worthwhile. 

 

I have looked at the repos but often wonder if they could be subject tosome of the same things that foreclosed homes are in the US. (sabotage)

 

I have been hard pressed to find any straight forward used anything transaction in the Philippines. The only ones I have experienced are the ones where I am the seller.

Thanks for the different replies...

 

I am not focusing just on 'buying new'. If I can find a good bargain, fine.. but so far the difference between new and nearly new (1-2 years old) was quite small (300k).

 

Ps: New Fortuner is around 1.3 at the dealer
