Question Holden pricing to go up

Did anyone else see this on TV?
It says you should get in quick and buy one of those end of year commis because next year they will increase the prices.
Now are they just saying the clearence is over, or the actual pricing plan will increase?
I think it is not talking about the sale, but the day to day pricing plan, it's just the way they said it.

read the fine print.... prices aren't going up on nearly everything they own. The last splash screen contains a list of excluded models... I am not sure what they make other than those models !

Once again, the fine print says it all.
I think the Astra may be going up (or is the fine print so small that I missed that one too?)

Nice advertising strategy to get people into the showrooms.

Almost every car that Holden stock is exempt from the price rise...

If they are all exempt what the hell are they going on about?
Perhaps it is just one of those advertising skeems to get customers...It really had me going there for a while.

I was told by a dealer that Ford will get a 2% price rise effective 1 January 03, not sure how true this was as he was trying to get me into a XR6 he had in stock.

The increase in prices for the falcon has been true for some time now. I first heard about this at least 6 weeks ago.

The XR6 he had in stock would be at current prices. The only point of confusion is whether the increase applies to cars delivered in '03 or built in '03. I asked 2 dealers and got two different answers.

After all these "official factory announcement" adds from Holden, guess where the price rise really is.....

Hey Guys the price increase is effective on the following car lines:

Astra all models except Convertible. (Already up).
Monaro. New Monaro to be released shortly.
HSV has already gone up.
Rodeo to increase.

Hope this helps out.
