Cheap Xr6T.

flicking through the trading post today I saw this ad:

2003 Falcon XR6T, auto, 6000kms, acid rush. - $36500

its a ford dealership in Artarmon (Sydney), I wont mention name as i dont know if im allowed to here but phone number is 9439 4444.

PS - i am in no way affiliated with this caryard, just happened to see the ad when flicking through the paper and thought it looked very cheap for very low kms.

2003 BA XR6, T5, Blueprint. Herrods exhaust, unifilter ,painted calipers.
0-100 in 6.55 secs.
Forever to live in the shadow of its big brother!
Also - Kawasaki ZZR, soon to be Kawasaki ZX6R.

Re: Cheap Xr6T.

I'd say it was a typo, or they have it mixed up with a N/A

its not a typo - the ad has a picture and refers to the fact that the car has "240kw"

If its not a typo sounds like bait (or switch) advertising which is of course illegal, to try to get you into the dealers yard and hence get a sale.

Definition is here, taken from Office of Fair Trading website:
Quote:
Bait and switch advertising
Bait and switch advertising involves advertising a small number of goods at low prices to entice customers to your business. When the advertised goods quickly run out, customers are switched to higher-priced goods.

You are responsible for ensuring that there are enough supplies available to cover a sale. You still may not be able to meet the demand during a sale but you should have at least planned for it and have reasonable stock or offers available. This is not just common sense, it's the law.

What is reasonable will depend on the type of product, the context of any advertisement and your previous trading experience. The period of offer should also be made clear in the advertisement.

If an offer is available for a limited period then put this in the advertisement. If stocks are genuinely limited, such as a clearance sale, say so in the advertisement.

When you can't meet the demand, you may offer to supply the advertised item to customers at a later date eg. a 'raincheck'. This generally avoids customer dissatisfaction as well as indicating that the advertising was genuine. Alternatively, you can supply equivalent goods immediately and at the advertised price if the customer accepts.
Otherwise, a bargain!

Scope out my '80 XD Fairmont Ghia 351 V8 in the gallery!

Re: Cheap Xr6T.

But the thing is there is alot of XR6T's for sale second hand everywhere at the moment.
The question is why?
Is it the insurance?, running costs?
