    Field days ute specials?

    Anyone know when they start coming out?
    Anyone walked up with the money there and then and got a deal better than going to the show room?

    Field days is June 13-16 and southern is Feb 14-16

    Not considering a trade in, what we have is worth running into the ground for what I'd get for it

    Good call. Had been almost considering offering you a wee premium on whatever pittance you'd get offered for a trade-in on the outback, and doing that running into the ground myself if you liked the idea.

    The 'fielddays deals' in the north island generally start a month prior and go for a while after.

    Holden’s doing a really good deal on Colorado’s at the moment. Picked up a 4x4 ltz for 47k couple weeks ago. Free servicing for 3 years too. A demo was more expensive than a brand new one

    They seem to throw all the bells and whistles on the demos, side steps, nudge bar, different tyre/rims etc. Why can't they justleave it factory and them you know what your driving. Was thinking of waiting for an ex demo but this is good adviceaying it may not be worth it

    Although If you are buying new then all those things you want add up and you get on "road costs" added. Exdemos usually do have most of the things you might be after and whne you actually figure it out may be slightly more expensive than "new" but less than "new with all the goodies you wanted", sometimes
    for example here it the quote for the Hilux we never brought,

    We were also given a price 49K for a 2017 Hilux with 8,000 on the clock but still need to buy a canopy and towbar
    We ended up with a 2016 Colorado LTZ with 11K on the clock, balance of factory warrenty/servicing

    yeah I asked the salesman that very question and he said why would you want/need one?

    All those "extras" are the things that really jack the price up quick, its just like buying boats

    I once priced up a new boat. I asked for turn key/drive away price and yet the quote was priced at hull with option of " motor " and "trailer" and it was a trailer boat ffs so how can a trailer be a bloody option ditto on the motor especially as there was no way to row or sail it

    its how the suck the money out of you.nice price to get you in the door then add on the extras slowly so you don't realise the price is skyrocketing then offer some finance deal so you think that you are getting a bargain still.thats why people are buying fotons and mahindras as by the time you get all the extras you still save $20k plus on a ford or Toyota and you don't cry as much when it ends up down the bank or in a tree.

    You probably would still cry when the insurance company paid you out what they determine to be current market value.

    Also I think if I were to have a whoopsie in a ute I would rather it be a Toyota, Ford, Mazda or Holden or similar as I personally think I would be more likely to be around to make that claim??
