No Discount on Land Rover Discovery in South East Queensland?

I'm in South East Qld., recently I decided to buy Land Rover Discovery Sport MY21.

However all dealerships (South Brisbane, Brisbane CBD, Gold Coast) don't offer any discount at all.

Is that common in this Covid19 situation?

    Ok. It's a Freelander.

  • Ok. It's a Freelander

    With better quality fake leather.

    It's the latest variant with likely limited supply due covid. Why offer a discount when the next day someone will walk into the dealership and happily pay full price.

  • Have you shopped them against each other? Call some Sydney dealers, tell them you're only willing to pay X. Then if they bite take that back to your Qld dealers.

    Buy from the most local to you, they will be your best friends in the service department.

    • They will be your best friends whoever you buy from. You will not get any actual preferential treatment for buying the car from them unless there's something written down (like a % off rack rates for service, etc.)

        I just mean its easier for you to get home after dropping it off.

          after dropping it off.

          after it gets picked up on the flat bed transporter…

  • They may see themselves as prestige and not requiring/wanting discount customers.

    It's like going into a Ferrari dealership and asking them for a discount - it just won't happen. You generally wouldn't be walking in there if you didn't already have the means to afford such a car.

    • I know some rich people that are proper tight wads lol I would negotiate a Ferrari for sure

  • Get a car broker and let them find you the deals.

  • If they aren’t offering discounts they can obviously sell at retail price. Means the vehicle is in demand.

    Can you get extras thrown in?

  • Take that as a sign and buy something else. Whatever you buy will probably be more reliable that the Landrover
