If you can bring it down to 5 to 5.25 then it is good price, not more than that.
I think the 'S' cost around 7.7 on road in Chennai, our team-bhpian Gilead brought it for around this price with some discounts.

When I asked 6 to 7 months back they quoted that price. It was with the corporate discount I got in addition to the regular discount.

Default Chevy Captiva price

Guys,

I am looking to add a new 'old' vehicle to my stables. Although my budget may or may not permit, my heart is stuck on to an SUV. The only 'urban' and 'diesel' SUV that seems to fit the bill is Chevy CAPTIVA.

Now, I will look to buy this guy around Dec '10 or Jan '11. What do you believe will be a good price for a 2.5 yr old (say May- June '08) CAPTIVA in New Delhi?
Right now I am doing a feasibility survey!

PS: Please respond with some realistic figures and not wild guesses.

Civic , since she is more than 2 years old, I guess she should fare around for 9-9.5
Octavia , is that the bs3 engine? anyways the price seems tempting for a few months old car considering the on road price is 3.7 lacs more.

Hey guys a friend found out about this Honda accord may 2009.
Mint condition, Chandigarh registration, 10000kms, tafeta white colour.
what do you think is the best price for this car?

Default ohc vtec 02

folks,

Yesterday came across a OHC vtec in bnglr - rare breed as far as atleast bangalore is concerned I know for sure.

This was a 2002 model, done 60k km, second owner but unfortunately with a dealer. I just was passing through sony world junction, got to see the rare machine the good old ohc vtec. Immediately I recollected what my bhpian friend told me earlier. look out for cars that have come for sale in used car dealers. Maybe if you are lucky, get hold of owner and settle for 1-2k more than whatever ughly figure the dealer would have quote.

Unfortunately owner was not there. With my curiosity never ending, I went to dealer and asked.

2002 model, done 60k km, second owner - 4.5 lakh-something nego. Car was navy blue (dark) in color, glossy like anything, sure they would have polished it. Just minor scratches...that's it. If I get i for somewhat 4 lakh, is that a good deal. Hope these guys have not toyed with mileage and odo. I will defenitely look for service records and also get a mechanic. I just want to know what could be the right price.

That's an awfully high price for a car ( no matter how good it is) that is 8 yrs old. Bangalore is:

1) Ridiculous second hand prices. Apart from the high entry point, most sellers simply 'think' they should get more for the car. Some buyers oblige high prices as well so I can't blame them for charging high.

2) Obsessed with OHC VTECs. I am a Delhiite and have been to Mumbai. I have not seen such craze for OHC VTEC in any other city.

Keeping 'Bangy' factors in mind, you may want to try to negotiate to 3.25 or so. Start from 3 though. Anything more, will be an overkill.

I agree, The price is way too high even if it is a OHC VTEC,

Even if you can pay this exhorbitant amount, remember, this will even worsen the Bangalore situation, one reason why people ask for such high prices is because there are people ready to pay.

I think 3 - 3.25L is the max that you should offer, anything above that you will just start ruining the second hand market.

P.S. - No offences to anyone. The above are just my views.

Default Skoda Sale

Looks like some company can be Skoda itself has sold a large nos. of Fabia's & Octavia's. All these cars looks to be in good condition.

At Mahindra Firstchoice - Goregaon there are at least 10 Fabia's & more octavia's all MH20 registered and looks quite new. When asked the sales Person said they have picked up a huge qty of cars from Aurangabad.
