    Default Query related to purchasing Honda City 2016

    Hello guys. I am willing to trade in my current Honda City manual with Honda City Prosmatic with navigation. I contacted Honda Fort and they gave me 2 options. They have 1 prosmatic with navigation available now but they are saying you have to pay Rs. 50000 extra. Is this legal? Why this extra money? Secondly they are saving you have to book the car with 100% payment and they will take my current car and I will be without car for 60 days.

    Do you guys suggest a solution for my problem? Thank you.

    Why 60 Days? My Aspire 2016 Prosmatic is scheduled to be delivered in two weeks only,And about extra payment there might be difference of price as if your car is a bit used

    Thank you for your reply. I do not know why 60 days. They said it will 60 days. The extra price is not of the condition of the car, they have given the price of my current car separately, they named this price something else that this is the fee for urgent purchasing without booking.

    How much your car is driven? by 50k extra you mean 50k as differential amount or "ONN" which is over and above the retail price.

    As for booking the car, city's booking time is much less than 60 days. My own city (1.3 MT) was delivered in 4 days after booking, my bro in law's car (1.3 MT as well) in 8 days. Prosmatec ka delivery is a lil more, realistically it would be around 20 days.

    I think they produce the prosmatic in batches every month in limited numbers,so that is the reason it took 15 to 20 days or delivery

    You got my point. I am talking about ONN amount which is above the retail price. What is this price? Why do they take this?

    I was talking about the ONN amount. They have already given me the rate of my current car and the amount I would need to pay along with the car to purchase new one. But they are saying they will charge 50000 more on this amount if I do not book the car and purchase the one which is currently available (which is ONN amount).

    Why do they put this own amount? Isn't it illegal? Its just a way to earn more money?

    Well ONN is part of our industry since quite some time now.. I think it started in early 2000s or late 1999s when there was a surge in leased cars. Due to sudden spike in demand ONN mafia started its operations.

    Anyways, I will try and explain how it is conducted. It is morally and ethically a bad practice but legally its not.

    A lot of investors have pooled their money with HONDA/TOYOTA sales showrooms. They book cars (investors) and sell it to customers which need car urgently. Some of the portion is kept by dealership as their cut and other is investors profit.

    Because of the ONN mafia dealerships tend to delay bookings as the customer conducts a time vs money analysis. Generally its better to pay ONN on toyota cars as they have longer wait times. Honda's delivery time is about 20 days tops. I think for some reason the specific dealership is trying to fleece you. Better to go to another dealership, don't discuss your previous car. Just say I want to book a new car with whatever options you want and ask them how quickly you can arrange. Sell your current car in open market.

    Just my two cents.

    OWN they say is taken by investors , who book cars (by paying full amount) a month back and give it to needy pple and take OWN (profit) on their investment.
    Its not illegal , just a return for 1.6 million investment for a month or so (till vehicle is sold).

    For ur surprise OWN on GLI corolla is 1.2 lac

    When i booked mine, Honda said that if you want with nav you have to go on booking, else if you need it urgent than you have to pay 30k, i asked the same question why ? as this is not part of Honda policy, and honda strictly disallow it. I guess this is the part of salesman/sales girls who rob you if you want a car now.

    P.S i opted booking and still waiting
