Should I Buy Mazda CX-5, Hyundai ix35, Santa Fe, Kia Sportage or Subaru XV?

With the brokers you recommend, once I select a vehicle can I get their price before I go to the dealer? I've previously had company cars and on mid-range Ford and Subaru WRX (not me) we'd get $5-6K off but that's gong back nearly 10 years so maybe that sort of discount is not there any more. I can possibly buy using an ABN as I'm self employed - do the brokers know the in-outs of that situation or is it more a question for my accountant?

Should I Buy the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 or Hyundai Santa Fe?

Hi John,

I listen to you on Radio 2UE overnight. I have a 2004 Honda CRV sport with 172,000km- should I trade in or sell? I want another car like a CRV and Iam looking at the RAV 4 and Santa Fe. I have a family of 5 with 3 kids (6, 8, 11). Occasionally I tow a trailer with rubbish to the tip. Whenever we go out as a family we would go in this car. We don't go off road, but I like sitting higher than in a normal sedan. We would take this car on any holidays we went on. I drive this car to work (40km per day return trip). I do approx. 22,000km per year.

Thanks,

Richard

Looking at an automatic Mazda 3 or Hyundai i30 or whatever is similar.

Thank your for your assistance with this matter.

Should I buy the Ford Territory On Sale?

 

QUESTION

Hi John, I have been listening to your approach re purchasing a new car on Radio 2UE and how I should get at least 10 per cent off the RRP. My question is, does this apply to a special offer? For example, we are looking at buying a Ford Territory TX Diesel (with added 3rd row). The special offer price is $39,990 from Ford. Dealers seem to hint they have less room to move, should the 10 per cent off rule still apply?

Thanks,

Luke
