Car dealers are working hard to offer their potential clientele base demonstration (demo) vehicles at an affordable price point. To save some valuable cash, plenty of customers may consider buying a Mitsubishi ASX demo sale Brisbane car in favour of a new one, thanks to attractive prices! However, there are a few aspects you should consider before making the actual investment.
If your heart is set on buying that demo, arm yourself with information that can help during the negotiations. Plus, many car dealers would rather sell a vehicle to you as a demonstrator than a used one, so leverage that. Here’s a list of other factors that will help you negotiate down the price of the beautiful vehicle at a Mitsubishi QLD yard.

Understand the demo car concept
The dealer uses demo cars, so they are technically not brand new. However, these vehicles are usually the latest, top-of-the-range models with all the fancy bells you find in top trim versions. Since they are not brand new, demo vehicles are available at a discounted price.
A few types of demo vehicles you will come across in a dealership are:
- Dealer demos used for promotions and test drives
- Runner model vehicles that the dealership wants to sell fast to make room for a new model
- Courtesy demo cars are those that a car dealer loans clients when they bring theirs for servicing
- Factory demos are for manufacturer’s display purposes in commercials, at events and exhibitions
Before making the purchase, discuss the history of the vehicle with the Mitsubishi ASX demo sale Brisbane dealer sales representative. The representative understands you have more access to information than ever before. And an important part of purchasing a car is knowing its history.
For demo vehicles, history is especially critical. Even the shortest test drive may end with the wheel misaligned or significant use can introduce wear. Fortunately, dealerships maintain thorough paperwork that proves the activity of the demo car you are interested in—ask for that report.
Research vehicle prices
Research is a critical vehicle purchase step, especially because your car is most likely the second biggest purchase you make after your home. Compare the price quoted by the dealership to the price of an identical make and model that is brand new. Consider the car’s overall condition, and factor in the dealership rebates and incentives you are receiving. You might discover that going for a demo vehicle is the best option.
As you run a “Mitsubishi dealer near me” search on Google, make sure that the dealership you settle on is reputable. When all stars align the wrong way, the last thing you want is your “new” demo car becoming a lemon, but your dealer seems incapable of helping you or is out of reach. The best part of purchasing a demo car is that most are still under the 3 to 5-year manufacturer’s warranty. Reputable dealerships make getting mechanical repairs much easier compared to the dealer whose only interest is making a sale!
Inspect the vehicle
As you inspect a Mitsubishi demo car, keep these things in mind:
- The engine starts easily without smoke or unnerving noises
- The car has not survived major accidents
- Tyres are in excellent condition
- Battery life is in pleasant condition
- All interior car surfaces should be in the same shade and no scratches
- All electrical components work
- The vehicle’s audio system is functional
