DSF 2013 goes car crazy: Buy now, pay later

By Sneha May Francis

For those looking to buy a new car, the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) may be the perfect time to splurge.
Most car deals in the emirate are flagging some hard-to-resist bargains and some killer rewards during this shopping season.

Al Habtoor Motors, which houses Mitsubishi, has churned out a unique deal this DSF, with its buy-now-pay-later option.
“Buy a Mitsubishi  Pajero this DSF from Dh98,900 and pay after 3 months at 0% finance,” reads their advertisement.

The deal also throws in free insurance, service and five-year warranty. And, that’s not all, there’s Dh5,000 cash discount on the car.

The pay-later offer is also extended to the entire range of Mitsubishi models.
There’s, however, only one catch that the car finance should be taken from the EmiratesNBD bank, explained a salesperson.

Galadari Motors has also chalked out some deals this DSF.

On their most-popular 7-seater SUV, Mazda CX-9, they are offering Dh10,000 cash discount.

“And, we are also giving five year/100,000km manufacturer’s warranty, and first  1,000km free service,” explained their salesperson.

She detailed that the offer is quite popular with a lot of daily enquiries coming in.

Nissan, in fact, steps up the competition with Dh50,000 cash back offer for every purchase during DSF.

“Buy any Nissan this DSF and instantly get a guaranteed cash-back,” reads their online ad.
“Hurry, limited stocks available”.

When Emirates 24|7 contacted their showroom, an official confirmed the deal.
“For every model you purchase, you get a coupon that can fetch you a guaranteed (minimum) amount of Dh1,000. And if you are lucky, you’d get as much as Dh50,000,” he explained.

All the Nissan models come with free 1-year insurance, 5-year warranty, and two services at 1,000km and 5,000km.

Al Futtaim motors that houses Toyota is also geared up for DSF.  They are bidding free 2-year service and maintenance, 2-year insurance and low down payment.

And, as part of the DSF, they are offering shopping vouchers worth Dh200 for every test-drive taken during the month-long fest. “And, if the customer buys a car, then the mall voucher increases up to Dh2,000,” added a sales official.

Kia Motors has special offers for their 2013 models, with free service contract for a year/20,000km, registration and insurance thrown in. The offers are for Kia’s Optima and Sorento models.

Honda also steps in with stunning deals. For every purchase of Honda models, customers can walk away with a free iPad mini, 20,000km service and a cash discount of up to Dh12,000.

Although Al Tayer Motors has not planned out special offers for DSF, they will continue their deals that give every buyer free 5-year/100,000km car assistance, 3-year/60,000km service and maintenance.

They are also offering 1-year free insurance for the 2012 model of Ford Fusion and Escape.

With so many different discounts and deals on offer, this could possibly be the best time to buy your dream car.

“I was planning to buy a car last month, but waited for DSF to kick-start because I knew there’d be good offers,” adds Radhika Menon, a Marina resident who recently acquired a driving license.

Guess, she was right. It was well worth the wait.
