well, i do know that Popular Motors in Chennai had a black Lxi with them till even about end of June and were trying like hell to sell it off....am pretty sure they would've stooped down to the price quoted by Shobith to get rid of it...

this wasnt a demo car and apart from the dust that it had gathered sitting at the Popular Motors yard, the car didnt seem to have anything wrong when my colleague test drove it. The guy, obviously, was scared stiff of being caught with a "lime" and settled for an Ikon instead..

Most of the time, its the dealers and not companies.

Another example is the Fiat Petra which had sales in july even though discontinued long back. the dealers try to sell their old stocks at much reduced prices.

seems like we are all speculating. How about producing solid proof from an actual purchaser?

Exactly. Please find someone who has actually bought a car like that a& get his views before we speculate like this. Mostly this is just small talk.

In which case, the resale value of your baleno could get seriously hit.

Not from a person who has bought it, but maybe this might help clear some doubts here. Though note the reviews after the article too.

New cars at used ones's rates!

I saw a Yellow Baleno VXi as a GOLD cab in mumbai...and to me, it looked like the rally version of the car as it had alloys and everything!
