I have a 2003 model 2.4 AT. In city a full tank gets me approx. 400 - 450 kms on average (FE of approx. 6.5 - 7 km/l).

I own the 2008 MY and I must say a full tank returns me 690 - 700km,the acceleration is pretty quick as well.

Saw a 2002 Black AT at a dealer's. Run about 50,000 Km and looks pretty neat. Owner is asking 3.5 L, is it a good price ? I am really tempted.

Sounds fishy -- please get it checked for mechanicals; Here's the carwale value :

CarWale CarValue : 2002 Honda Accord 2.3 VTi AT in Chennai

If you are selling your car


Individual Value

Carwale value doesn't seem to be very accurate or realistic by any means.

Let me know if you are interested, not sure about inter state transfer rules etc so you might want to check those out.

Wow sahil - that's a great price for a great car.. I wonder who's the lucky stiff that pockets it ...
In the south, even the NHC CVT of a similar year cant be had for the same price ..

carwale is way off target here. It is difficult to sell these cars, hence the low resale. BTW, a 2004 Camry sells for 5 lakhs.

That seems to be a very good offer, but not worth the trouble to make the transfer as you know the LTT will be huge on a car like the Accord.

That is because there is so much more demand for the NHC than the Accord and the FE

Yeah that's true - but it's fun to know that such an expensive car can be had for such a killer resale price. It might be a great vehicle for folks who travel very little.
