will the high cost get somewhat compensated in the used car market? Else, say at 5-5.5 lacs, one might still buy a new POLO at that price! In that case the purpose of buying used is defeated.

It was 6.98 ex. showroom when launched.
I would say skip it, As a rule of thumb one should pick up less selling models unless and untill you are getting hard-to-resist price or you are too much fanatic to buy the same.

Look out for civics, you'll be happy to have it at any day over jazz

Back after checking out the car. The alloys were of some 'HR' company with quite a lot of scratches and six spokes. Surprise!! surprise!! The body and bumpers were indeed scratchless. turns out the car was repainted and new 'local' black bumpers added. The car was kept in a real poor state and I think after repainting it had never been washed. At places the car had, I kid you not, 1/2 cm layer of mud.

To top it up the price was 'fixed' at 2.25L, with 'others' willing to give that much for this car. I had no choice but to walk away from it.

My cousin checked this car out and also did a small spin. He is OK with the car and says that the body is scratchless. (Maybe the dealer got enough time to tinker with the car). AC cooling is good. Didn't get a chance to observe the suspension et al as the spin was very short.

Owner is looking for 2.25L.

How does the overall deal look? Carwale value of car is close to 2.1L for a 'Good' condition car of same age. However I feel that the field prices of cars in Delhi is no where close to the carwale value.

Apart from the mileage everything else I am fine with (even black bumpers). Did XL come with black bumpers always?
What sort of things would require change in near future. I am guessing brake pads?
How much premium can be paid for the alloy wheels?

Folks, I've come across a Sliver/grey april 2005 Lx Safari done 1 lakh kms, 4*4 with dual ac and good set of wheels in gurgaon, the qouted price was 4.5 lakhs. Seeing the condition of the car, it seemed pretty clean, being single owner, but I need help...what would be the right price and a safari which has done 1 lakh already..is it worth the risk...?

absolutely not worth the risk. I have had 2 Tatas and would not suggest buying a used one if it has over 60000 kms. You are setting yourself up for trouble. I have chatted with a few Tata service guys and they all have unanimously told me that the Tata cars with over 75000 kms is like having a elephant - you wll have to feed it (repairs and maintenance) often to keep it happy.

There are few Honda Jazz's available in the used car market in Bangalore and the pricing seems ridiculous much like the new car price - 7-7.5 lakhs for a 6-8 month old car with about 5000 kms. Not sure if the Jazz can command such a premium in the used car market. like others have suggested something around 5 lakhs would be a great buy.

JLN - Thanks mate, I've been in 2 minds lately and i guess now it's clear...to get a safari only done less than 50000 kms would be the best deal

since your location shows bangalore it would be around 5.5 lacs for Fiesta,Accent Crdi would be between 3.5 to 4 and Ikon being on cheaper side
from 1.5 to 2.75.But wont suggest to for a Crdi/Ikon Diesel ( Maintaining one can burn a deep hole ) Dont have much idea about Fiesta but should be easier than latter two.

The Carwale Values are a pretty good indicator. In Bangalore, if you can get a car at the Carwale individual price (good condition), you can be pretty sure that you have got a good deal.

Even GTO's pre-worshipped Civic (the big daddy of used car deals on TBHP) price was bang on target with the carwale price and everyone on TBHP agrees that it was too good a deal.

I would try and avoid the accent and ikon diesel (old) unless your budget is very very tight. The Fiesta is quite good and seems to hold good value in Bangalore. The new Ikon has the same Fiesta TDCi engine - but finding a used one may be tough. There was one on TBHP marketplace - 1 year old, about 10000 kms that was sold for around 4.8 lakhs.


From a range perspective - you can get a good 2007 Fiesta for around 5.5 in Bangalore. Check out Sulekha.com - there are quite a few listings.

Guys,

Just got a call from Southend Honda, there is a 2007 Silver Civic clocked 24k on odo, single owner and 2007 tyres, DL registered, S model. Asking for 7.80, non negotiable. What say?, is this a good price?

I have yet to see the car, but am refraining since IMO, I should get a similar car upto 7.40 lacs. Please suggest

Dude, I am actually happy that you walked away from the deal. It is very difficult to find genuine sellers! And worst are the dealers. They would make-up a monkey to look like a Donkey and sell it for the cost of a Horse.

When you are selling your car, the dealer talk as if your car is cursed and they bargain it in such a way that you feel like disposing it at dirt cheap rates! and when you come back to buy the same car! they talk as if the car is a chariot of god! and on the other hand, if you find a really genuine seller/dealer, then nothing like that.

Somewhere around 2.5l should be good enough if the car is in excellent condition (does not need any kind of repairs).
