Default How much is National Fleet Discount worth?

Hi Everyone,

I have been lurking here for a while now slowly gathering info before I purchase a paj. There is a lot of great info here.

Through a professional association membership I am entitled to Mitsubishi National Fleet Discount. Does anyone know in $$$ terms what this equates to? And what sort of discount I would expect to receive on a 25th Anniversary Edition?

Regards
Steve

Thumbs up National Discount

Hi Steve, I have recently bought an 08(April) DiD pajero VRX. I had a number of discounts that were available including:
Big 4 caravan parks member discount
Mitsubishi 4WD Club QLD.
The salesman told me that these discounts were all good but the best way to get Fleet discount was to get a letter from my employer stating that the car was being used for business purposes. This was actually the case as I am using the Pajero as a company car on a car allowance. Since April 08 I have done over 8,500kms with great fuel economy 8.2 ltrs/100km on a trip (no passemgers & all highway driving) with no problems at all.
I paid $54,500 drive away including auto, tow bar, rear cargo separator, family pack with DVD, rear air con & air bags.
Regards
Brock

General Fleet = Big4, ABL, Pajero Club, those kinds of things. The National Fleet discount relates to companies with more than x number of cars. Now your dealer will tell you different things depending on what they have in stock and all that kind of jazz, but you if you got around the 58k mark for an Anniversary model on the road, that seems to be about their "special" or real pricing.

The trick is in finding the car you want and then playing dealers off against each other to find out what the real price is (meaning how low they will go). I probably paid a bit too much for my car, but at the time there was very limited stock and I wanted it prior to June 30. Also paid for a sunroof I didn't want due to limited stock.

I got told that the difference between National Fleet (hard to get) and General Fleet (easier to get) is $1,500. HOWEVER, you might find 1 dealer on general will give you a better price than another dealer on national fleet.

Good luck.

Cheers,

Jason.

Thanks for the info guys. I have only spoken to 1 dealer so far but plan to talk to a few more in the local area.

I think I will approach the others to get a price with no options and and then hit them up for a fleet price and see how much it changes by, if at all.

From memory my national fleet discount was about $6500 on the GLX, in addition to the other stuff i could get thrown in.
Cheers Tom.

we normally work on fleet discount covering on roads, towbar and tint so our drive away price is pretty close to the list price

My national fleet discount on an Exceed was $6189 this was 10% of the basic price before gst and other extras, and I also received a further $2400 Dealer discount. I hope this helps you.

Default Fleet buyers

The % will vary based on the type of discount, my last three vehicles including the pajero, the discount equated to about 10% of the final price

Hope this assits

I picked up a new, yes new! NS GLX petrol wagon in Brisbane, for $40500 drive away. With tow bar mats and light covers. Help to buy it on the 27JUN08. They just wanted to clear the petrol V6 wagons. Can't move them. Starting price was about $50000, ye right! On my paper work fleet was around $5000 and then a discount of $6000 or so for the balance. Its on a Novated lease so they could offer fleet pricing but you will find if you work the dealers against each other you should get similar discounts. I was getting similar pricing without asking for fleet price.
