You should have bought a used one like we did, only CHF 12.7k!

I didn't know that! So can I get a tax cut by putting a slab of concrete in the boot?
You'll have to ask the Verkehrsamt. I'm pretty sure they don't put every car on the weigh bridge before calculating your bill

It's not a straight p/w calculation though. See here...

http://vasteuerrechner.sz.ch/bin/car...t&kategorie=01

A Lotus Exige V6 had p/w of 301ps/tonne an A45 AMG has p/w of 231, but the Lotus is CHF 10 cheaper per year. However a Ferrari 458 has p/w of 357, but costs CHF 500 more.

Re: Higher tax due to the wrong info from a car dealer

One thing I did when looking for a 'new-to-me' car was when having a look at the car in the forecourt/showroom, take a quick photo of the VIN number and the typenschien number (type approval number).

With some makes, you can then look up the full details of that exact car on the manufacturers websites. Ford has https://www.etis.ford.com which really tells you everything there is to know, Skoda has something similar but you have to pay a few euros for access. I think Renault had one, too, but I wasn't really looking for a Renault.

Even with the type approval number, you can get a lot more specific details of the car.

The information on a vehicle provided by car-salespeople is very unreliable - it doesn't take much on-line research to be better informed about a particular car than most of them.

Re: Higher tax due to the wrong info from a car dealer

I wonder whether the OP has had any feedback from the dealer yet?

And/or whether they want to come back and provide us with additional information.

Re: Higher tax due to the wrong info from a car dealer

Thank you all for many comments. Today I received the final news so happy to explain it.

After seeing several of your comments, I visited the law office to have legal advice. They primarily recommended nothing. A lawyer ( or I doubt she is perhaps a trainee) suggested to write the registered letter and wait for their reply. They did not recommend to bring this to the court because it could be expensive for me.


Accordingly I sent the registered letter stating that the wrong information will be financially impacting to me even it will not be enormous and ask that they will pay a couple of thousands to compensate my financial loss.

Today they came back to me and agreed to pay the difference of tax between I was assuming to pay and the amount I actually do. From this year, when I pay my tax, I will also send a copy, and they will pay the variance till I release my car.

The sales person explained to me that they discussed with their legal advisor and concluded that this is the best solution for both.

Hope this story could help somebody who have a same kind of matter!
