I recently purchased a Maruti Suzuki swift lxi optional from Poddar khanapara dealer in Guwahati, Assam. In the invoice bill they have mentioned the car price as 4,18,638 and after taxes came around 4.83 lakhs. But the on road price is somewhat 5.74 lakhs. So when I enquired about it with the dealer they said, it's the factory price of the car and they don't mention the on road price in the invoice bill. I'm a bit confused right now. Is it true?
Alfareed, The invoice must be containing all the components of on-road price that you have paid for. It will be having ex-showroom price, RTO charges, Insurance charges and other charges (standard accessories, Extended warranty, Logistic and Handling charges etc). If you have found any price difference on our website and the dealer quotation then please let us know the same. You can highlight it to us on email@example.com
