    Default Why you people buy from Non Authorized dealer?

    Dear Users,
    A very typical question that when you get all the services and warranties from a Authorised 3S dealer then why do you still prefer buying from a non authorised quack?

    Mod edit: This is not automobile news, refrain from posting in the wrong section. The next infraction will result in a ban.

    Because prices of parts are less in outside market.

    3S is not as easily accessible as a common shop around the corner.

    I guess some responsibility also lies with company.Most genuine parts are from places like Taiwan etc.Company itself hardly promotes any locally manufactured good quality parts!

    i think max people buy from authorized dealers...there are only few who buy from local dealers nd thats mainly due to tax issues...nd some buy cuz of color shortage..!!

    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    Only personal relations,and some special services,in our family we whenever need to buy a car we have a showroom who is not a 3S dealer,but freight to Isloo all dealers charge around 10k he charges way less,getting our cars registered here in Islamabad is his concern,getting fed up from 3S dealers generated after when my elder brother was handed over a complete side repainted (NEW) car from a 3S dealer as it was booked by my brother,so whats left after that,you being a 3S dealer can you prove that doesn't new cars in their transport mode get minor or sometimes major damages so what someone say k "Khuda ko hazir nazir Jan k" you confirm k this does not happens and peoples are never handed over repainted even a minor scratched vehicle. So this is the reason that some people on their bad experiences avoid to go to 3S dealerships.

    Well we do get minor or rarely major damages during transportation. What i personally do is i tell the customer exact details of the damage and if he is willing then i sell him. i do give discounts which results me in loss but i know if i am telling truth it will and it does get covered from some other car.
    yes there are some people who dont speak truth is their personal issue. but this is not because he is a 3s dealer he will lie. anyone can lie and anyone can speak the truth... u cannot stereotype it..

    generally 3s dealer doesnt lie because he has a REPUTE is more at risk than any ordinary road side showroom

    bcoz showroom prices of example toyota corolla 1.3L XLI
    1,354,000 and i think 15k rent also for isb/pindi user have to pay.(2010)

    a non authorized dealer may have purchase of xli at 1300000 or 1330000 (a delivery may be earlier when price is around 13lac after one month showrom price is 1330 or 1354 and local dealers wants to sell on a bit profit just to circulate his money)
    and the buyer can easliy gets within 1330,1335,1350 even,recently i buy xli in nov10 about 1035,and one mine friend 1033.

    2ndly i think pay cash and take the car.while on showrooms have to w8,some might but some cant.

    I had to buy a new gli and need to pick it on spot without booking. 3S dealer was charging 1490 plus 10k addl for the new olive mica color

    The same car I got from a non authorized showroom for 1475. The non authorized dealer was prev a showroom of Mitsubishi but now closed due to dewan issue and now he is selling brand new toyotas n other makes.
    He has complete setup of services as well but any Toyota 3s dealer will entertain u around the ctry and I had my FFS from an authorized dealer :p
    SAme was the case when I had to buy an alto back in 2005.

    Advise for u being a 3s dealer:
    Setup a customer relations desk at ur place and get ur profit margin less and make the potential customer feel at home. Ppl think that getting a cold drink or a cup of tea will suffice to lure the customer but now customers are more clever n well informed.

    Adios
    My dear ALLAH when I loose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointment and Your plans for my life are better than my Dreams.

    I think its awareness. At PW people are aware that buying a car is easy as long as you have cash available. People who are not aware they still think buying a car is like passing a summary from government. They ask lots of people who just recently own a car. Then they somehow are connected through they chacha or mama to showroom and that showroom guy tells him another nightmare story about buying a car from 3s dealers. Finally the buyer buys from that showroom and he becomes his lifetime buddy . so even after 20 years , he still buys cars from him no matter how much profit does he make out of that relationship.

    I think Cars should be available at factory price at 3S dealers, is this some kind of illegal for 3s dealers to sell cars over factory price?

    this is the latest happening and damn upsetting. now whenever someone buys a new car i suggest them to take a denter/painter when getting delivery.

    a family friend was once handed over such a vehicle. the dealership refused to admit until he told them he worked in the media section of FFC and would bombard their dealership through all media available.......

    Mainly because of relationships.
    discounts.
    color avalibilties.

    Some people might also buy from outside dealers as they wont ask for NTN etc. just a NIC copy of the person buying or being transfered on. Showroom bookings require NTN
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    I wouldn't trust the reputation of a Honda showroom let alone Suzuki.
