In addition most of the time the doctor's car will be driven by his wife or a chauffer and likely be registered in his wife's name. So it'll qualify as a lady driven doctor's car.

Yep Parsi's & doc cars seem to fetch a premium but have seen a lot of Parsi and Doc car (espcially Doc cars) that are actually worse than those of the rest of the world.

The doc today (if he does well) has no time to take care of his car, and it is in the worst shape - plus does not go for even the due maintenance service on time. And if he does have the time - possibly he is not doing too well and can't afford the maintenance - No offence to the exceptions that exisit.

I have a friend who is from a family of doctors. Everyone in her family (Dad Mom Sister Brother Husband) are doctors. They have about 6 cars, those are the most ill maintained bunch of cars

So it seems like its just a old trick that sold good. And I think this is the case only in India.
Coming back to the topic, on lady driven cars. This is dicey considering there are a few lasses who know their way around their cars and are quite good at identifying the problem and having the same solved. They love their cars as much as we do and can give us a run for our money. Also, there are some who are not even aware of the toll free number of their cars and the first call made out in the event of a breakdown would be to a friend or relative who would be mostly male.
Apologies if I sound against woman's lib, its a long way here unless they start maintaining one queue for all gender.

Toyotas don't just fetch a good resale in India, but, elsewhere too. Here, is another record of the same:

We were actually discussing this topic at work the other day!

Think about this, its about Single owner and more than one owner for a used car affecting its price

Scenario 1.
A Company buys a car, appoints a Driver and he looks after the car, then the Company gets sold, all assets and personnel get transferred, the Driver moves to the new Company with the car, RC changed in the name of the new Company, same thing happens again, maybe the Driver was driving for a Manager and the car lease expires and it is now transferred to the name of the Manager

Scenario 2.
A single person owns the car for 10 years, but has been changing Drivers frequently, maybe more than 15 in the 10 year period

Which car would you be better off buying as Single owner and more than one Owner?

Moral of the story - The car is in front of you, previous ownership does not matter, what you are going to drive away is the car, so stick with the car while making the judgement and most importantly, while making the payment!

My 2 cents
