Hi Ronk, I would recommend TV Sundaram. I bought my used car there and I quite liked the dealing. Car has also been performing well and I've not had any problems with it.

Hey Ronk I think you meant National Motors. I bought my Baleno from there and so did my bro in law (Scorpio). We both got good deals on good cars.

My 2004 Baleno was qouted at about 4.7 and I brought it down to well under 4L. Its all in the last min negotiations, when he knows you really want it, he will drop it down further. Dont go by the tag.

PM me if you want my contacts Phone number. I will call him and tell him a friend wants a good deal.

Citizen is next door to my place in cooke town next to ITC infotech. They have horrible customer care. They judge you and may decide that you are not going to buy. They are rude and I have been advised by others as well to keep off them.

PM me if you wanna know more. I looked at about 7 cars for about 3 months before buying my Baleno.

Don't buy from dealers, you will end up paying atleast 20k more than the market price, instead try these sites,

Buy Used Cars Bangalore Second Hand Cars, Bangalore Used Cars for Sale Ad Listings on Sulekha.com

Used cars for sale in Bangalore - click.in Bangalore

These sites are updated by direct owners / dealers,
Get hold of a good mechanic, try the cars and buy.

I bought my santro 2002 dec, through click.in, for 1.6, though i have to spend around 20k, the level of satisfaction will be good.


One main thing in buying a second hand car, should have lots of patience, when found a good deal/car pounce on it and buy.

Hi Ronk,

Also try FreeAds. You get lot of direct owner vehicles listed in it. I sold my Maruti 800 thru FreeAds.

Regarrds,

I had to shell out around 15000 within 3 weeks of buying the car...clutch assembly replacement, AC coil replacement were the major ones..The service cost was quite high for some time..learnt later that the side doors were replaced after an accident. The AC was wrking when I test drove the car though the coil had a major leak...The clutch was adjusted just to last another 25 kms...
I had checked the car by a mechanic and got a good deal too...

The car was in good condition when I sold it in May this year. Changed the suspension and most parts, except engine..I loved my Santro..

I would suggest Automart. I bought my Matiz from there. Good service and proper paper work for the every vehicle and they claim they deal only with accident free vehicles.
