Ah the old cars salesman trick.

Retail value R159k
Trade value R125k
Price R88k.

Last time I checked WBC is a dealer, thus the actual price is the retail price. So the retail value is R88k and not R159k. :bang:

Not really...
The trade and retail values are from M&M and not concocted by the dealer.

WBC are also taking some shortcuts as the say they are a 'trade' dealer so once you pay that cash price it is voetstoots. No recourse under CPA so you are on your own.
But I bought a pretty good one for even less than that simply because everybody is poep scared of the maintenance and possible parts prices.
You need to walk into owning them with open eyes.

Was chatting to one of my colleagues yesterday, she has a 2011 3.0 v6 TDI Touareg that she bought new and is now essentially 8 years old with almost 150000km's on the clock. She says it has been completely trouble free the entire time. When she moved to our Kenya office she shipped the thing there because she loves the thing so much.
