Default Used car dealer - VJ Cars, Chennai

Products sold:

Used Cars

Services offered:

Sale and Purchase of used cars, RTO paperwork for these

What I like:

The owner Mr.Khaja is polite and professional, they have a large yard with ample parking and the better quality, more expensive cars are parked in covered parking (always good for a car's paint in the Chennai heat). Their office is air conditioned with comfortable seating.

Vehicles in good condition and all reasonably new, C segment and up mostly (sedans, SUVs), or some few top end models of hatches. Most vehicles in his yard were under 5 years old.

The cars themselves are of good quality, as a trusted mechanic who I brought along confirmed after inspecting four or five vehicles. Cartrade certification + 100 day guarantee is available if you approach them through Cartrade. Also - before selling the vehicle VJ Cars takes it to a company authorized service centre and pays for their standard assessment of the car (40 point or whatever each car manufacturer offers), a copy is given to you along with the sale receipt so you know what you are paying for.

When you pay the advance and book a vehicle the advance receipt, car details etc are mentioned in a "green sheet" (legal agreement paper but not stamp paper) which is then stamped and signed by the dealer and countersigned by you. This contains explicit terms and conditions as well of when you need to close the deal or else a specific amount of the advance may be forfeited.

Overall sale and customer support experience is positive.

What I don't like:

The dealer's yard is located opposite the Saidapet Post Office, which is on a crowded and narrow road past the Saidapet Market. Huge amount of foot and load vehicle traffic along with the usual autos and two wheelers means that you have hard work to do in order to get your car in or out of there without scratching the paint.

Speciality / USP:

VJ Cars picks up several Fords from Ford India's auction of lightly used company cars that they assign to employees and then auction off after three years. So a substantial portion of his stock is well maintained company serviced Ford vehicles.

What I have bought from him:

2014 Ford Fiesta, 20K km on the clock, Ford corporate car issued to one of its employees before being auctioned off.

I am yet to pick the car up as bank paperwork, RTO etc are to be completed. The test drive was a bit limited (the yard backs into a crowded street and all), just contented myself with observing the engine running and inspecting the AC, body work etc.

Got the car for 6.4 lakhs but I still think I might have bargained more, never mind - any other car would have cost me much the same amount I didn't save by less bargaining later in terms of maintenance and such.

The car is in quite decent condition, it has the new Aston Martin type grille (the facelifted fiesta type). It is a ford global car which means that parts will be available for this guy for a long, long time.

You got a car which is awesome to look at, efficient, built sturdy, handles the best and is RARE. Never mind the cost, because for the same cost you could have only got a new mid level petrol hatchback.
