Second hand dealers are the same everywhere...last year Motorways was selling me a flood affected Vtec as a clean car....but one look at the interiors and the real story came to light

Rahul, I would suggest that rather than going in for dealers, try getting one directly from the owner. Use the internet or go through ads in the papers. Fix up a time to see atleast 3-4 cars over the weekend & comeover. Though Qualis is a very reliable vehicle, be very careful as majority of them run as highway taxis.

Cheers!

I suggest you use online classifieds to try and get in touch with a private seller. Stay away from dealers in Andheri (East), as I have heard rumours of them selling cars stolen up north. Also one them I approached for a used Baleno, refused to let me have it checked at Sai Service.

Thanks guys.I think I should drop the mumbai dealer idea or maybe even the qualis actually.A Qualis does not seem destined for me.

Some of the statements by the various dealers:

1>.This Qualis was used only as a private vehicle[Runs over 1lakh kilometers in 2 years].

2>.1 Lakh kilometers is nothing for a Qualis engine,all second hand Qualis have run atleast 1 lakh kilometers.

3>. Life of Qualis is till 7 lakh kilometers[ya like he tested it]

4>. The Qualis is in immaculate condition[meaning it has run 1.5 lakh kilometers]

5>. A Qualis with AC and powersteering is the most luxurious vehicle in the world.[Thats their attitude ,like they are selling a mercedes-benz to me]

Did not try the dealers mentioned by manson yet but few things with regard to the situation in India.

A few years back was on the lookout for a second hand car in south africa.Posted an ad in the newspaper and the very next day the seller contacted me no middlemen involved at all.In india middlemen have taken up the seconds market completely and the people who respond to your ads are mostly dealers in disguise.

Then comes the buying part,dont know if the dealers here will ever learn some courteousness,their attitude is such that they are doing us a favour by selling us a car.You are supposed to buy whatever they have never mind if you have some other car in mind.They give you so much of their gyan,you end up thoroughly confused after that.

Then comes the buying process,it was such an easy process buying a second hand car abroad but here there seem to be to many formalities.People are not honest enough to admit about flaws in their vehicles nor do they allow you a proper inspection of their cars by professionals of your choice.

Last but not the last,if you manage to find a good piece it is outrageously high priced by their greedy owners.Good second hand cars demand a premium no doubt but there is a limit to even that.


I am really in a bad state of mind now just seems buying a second hand car in India is nothing but suicidal.

Ps:
There will always be exceptions and unfortunately I am not that lucky it seems.

Majority of vehicles in africa are second hand ones,even imported from as far as japan.
