Default Used car price statistics : How much did you buy / sell yours for?

Many times, to decide on lateral upgrade, we visit http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ck-thread.html, classifieds.team-bhp.com etc

Though we get enriched with info, it takes a long time for individuals to make quick decisions based on the thread.

Statistics of closed deals, could be immensely helpful.

Requesting team bhpian who finalized their
(*) bought a pre-owned car or
(*) sold their car
to fill in the below details.

Model, Variant & Color :
First ownership Date :
Second ownership Date, Mileage, Price :
Third Ownership Date, Mileage, Price :
Brief Quantitative and qualitative comment:
..
..
Dates of ownership can be found in Registration document
Mileage can be approximated if service records are available.

Something like for e.g.

Model, Variant & Color and Date of the Car : Zen, Lxi, Yellow, May, 2000
Second ownership Date, Mileage, Price : May, 2004
Third Ownership Date, Mileage, Price : Nov, 2007, 35,000 KM.
Fourth Ownership Date, Mileage, Price : May, 2011, 63235 KM, 1,15,000 Rs
Brief comment : New tyres done changed at 53,000 Kms, has K&R filter



Please use http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ck-thread.html for discussion on the used car prices, conditions, queries as we are doing now.

Nice thread, moved from the Assembly Line to the Indian Car Forum. Please only share your buy / sell stats here; if you want a price check, use this other thread

Bought 2003 OHC Vtec in 2004

- Age : 1 year old
- Kms : 3,000 odd
- Price : 7.25 lakhs. New cost =9.75 lakh
- Would I go back and buy this car again? YES.

Bought 2007 Honda Civic

- Age : 3 years old
- Kms : 7,400
- Price : 8.25. New cost = Nearly 15 lakh rupees (V Variant)
- Would I go back and buy this car again? YES

I don't think I am ever buying a brand new showroom car again. Never. The value in the pre-worshipped market is too hard to resist.

GTO, the old vs. new are both OTR prices I assume?

This will be a very useful thread - one reason I couldn't convince my wife (and myself) to go for a new car was the lack of such information from guys who actually bought and sold cars.

Transferred the No Claim on Insurance to ANHV and saved 18K.

The Ex-showroom price when I bought the i20 was 6.53 lakhs. This being a 5 speed car, I thought I got a fantastic price on trading-in this car to the dealer.

Hyundai cars seem to have decent resale values

Cheers

Bought 2008 Mitsubishi Cedia in 2010

- Age : 2 years 5 months
- Kms : 12,000
- Price : 5,7 lakhs. New cost : 10 lakhs
- Average : 12-13 kmpl
- Variant : Spirit(leather upholstery)

Rock solid reliability, good amount of power with oodles of torque and crisp handling make this an absolute winner. Icing on the cake is the horrible resale value. A perfect pre-owned vehicle.

Bought 2006 Indica Xeta 1.4 GLG petrol in 2008

Bought Jun 2006 Indica in Feb 2008.
9000 kms done
price 2.5 lakhs, price when new 3.7 lakhs
From a software engineer in Infosys who was leaving for on site
Would I go back and buy this car again? YES.
Pros: Lots of space, all comfort features, robust suspension, cheap to maintain, 1.4 petrol has lots of torque. Great family car.
Cons: Reverse snob value, everyone in a Hyundai / Maruti / Honda/ VW gives way to an Indica. Boat like handling.

Nice thread.

BTW is this dedicated for cars alone? Why not bikes?
My last 4 bikes were used ones. Should I share here?
