Sold: 2005 Baleno Vxi
Purchased : Sep 2005
Price bought: 6.45 lakhs
Sold: Apr 2011
Km: 70,000
Price Sold: 2.1 lakhs
It had a rocking JBL amp and 4-speaker system, I used to drive just to listen to the concert-hall experience.
Loved the Baleno, bought the SX4 but it does not have the fabulous acceleration of the Baleno, though it has all the safety features and passenger comfort that the Baleno lacked.

Maintenance issues when I bought the car and the total lack of support from Ford. I suppose things have improved but, in India, I am going to stick with Korean/Japanese cars.

I suspected it could be maintenance issues. I become curious to check this out as your car has done only 14k kms in that 4.5 yrs. Your confirmation is a - Just 14k kms done car giving headaches.

Lousy service seems to be a major issue with FORD.

Iam moving to ford family only for the reason to experience the driving pleasure it offers via NFS. Hope to have less painful experience with them

Pain is Inevitable..just kidding. Good luck on your NFS.

If you stretch a bit, you can look at a nearly new Laura or the fluence. I am assuming you have a budget of 10 lakhs.

Nice thread!

Sold 2000 Hyundai Accent GLS in 2007

- Age : 7 year old
- Kms : 70,000 odd
- Price : 1.70 lakhs. I had bought it for 6.84 lac but price of new one was lower when I sold it.
- Sold to Mahindra First Choice
- Would I go back and buy this car again? YES. It served its purpose at the time. Now of course the market has matured.

Bought 2006 Swift Vxi in 2009
- Age: 3 years old, looked new!
- Kms: 30,000
- Price: 3.5 lac
- Bought at Mahindra First Choice
- Would I go back and buy this car again? YES. Best decision I made. Paid a premium (about 20 or 30K) but was worth every penny.

Sold 2004 Hyundai Santro Xing in 2011

Age: 6+ years
Kms: 50000
Price: 2,20,000
Sold to: Individual
Would I go back and buy this car again? YES. Very easy and reliable car and best for the city. It's just fun and easy to drive in the city with this car.

Bought Honda City VMT
- Age: 5 months old
- KMS: 910
- Price: 8,89,000 (after transferring the NCB of 11000)

I love the city as much as I loved my Xing. There is no other petrol car in the C segment that is so much fun to drive and performs so well.

Yesterday my friend purchased a 2000 model single owner 90k run Zen LX at Blore for INR 1.2Lac. The car is good condition with new tires, battery and seat covers and was maintained by the local Bosch service center and used by a SBI manager.
