This one's more difficult but any input is welcome.

2003 December Chevy Optra 1.6 - with factory designed, dealer installed CNG kit. Parsi single owner

72000 kms driven in the 7 years we've owned it, putting it at a low 10000 km a year usage.

60,000 full service was performed where the timing belt, water pump, suspension, brakes etc. all replaced at a total cost of Rs. 65,000/-

I've been offered 1.5 Lacs as a trade in for a new car but feel that I can do a little better if I sell to a private buyer. Any thoughts?

What is a decent price that can be expected for an i20 magna (P), 2009 sept model, ran 23500km, scratch free and nicely maintained in Chennai ? Was bought for 5.7L new.

I have come across a used honda city ZX VTEC in Bangalore.


Year - Sept, 2006

KMs done - 39,000

Insurance - Comprehensive (Till 31st march, 2011)

Engine - 4 cyl, manual transmission, petrol

Owner - First (Company leased car)

Asking price - 5.4 lacs

I have already lined up a mechanic to inspect the car and following GTO’s Used car checklist to the 'T'.



Below are my questions:


1. Is 5.4 lacs a realistic price?

2. The owner is saying that it's not been transferred to his name yet.

So, he can transfer the car directly onto the buyer's name. Is this possible?

3. What is the average maintenance cost of honda city zx vtec?

4. The car has done close to 39,000 kms. Should i expect a huge bill for the 40k service? When is the major service for this car?

5. Assuming that the car is mostly city driven, a friend has suggested to check the clutch, brakes and tyres for wear and tear.

Should i check anything else apart from the above?

6. The owner is claiming that the car is accident free and only serviced at Whitefield honda bangalore.

I am going to have a look at the service records this week. What (spikes) should i be looking for in the records?

Default Honda CRV 2005 AT 55k mileage-how much to pay?

Team,
I am looking to buy a pre owned CRV 2005 model/registered with 55k mileage on odo, single owner, silver color, automatic. The Price quoted 7.6 lakhs. The car drives nice, suspension feels good. The Break although stopped nicely, felt soft, comparing with x-trail. The car is in a Mahindra FC dealer, registered in Delhi. One year warranty included. Heard two good response from friends since they bought cars from MFC.

Experts, help me to get clear of the following doubts.

1. How reliable MFCs are?
2. How realiable CRV esp 2005 model ones. Will they last for the next 2 years without much problems, in typical drive cycle (with 55k mileage on odo)
3. Whether the price offered is a good deal? If not what is the best quote?

Thanks in advance.

Note from Team-BHP Support Staff : Please search existing topics before starting new threads. Thanks.

Guys,

Found a superbly maintained 2007 cedia sports (yellow). Looks smashing but the owner is quoting 7.25 lakhs. He is getting the deal done through a broker who's charging additional 2%. Considering that this is Dec of 2010, the car will complete 4 yrs in a month, I am thinking of asking for about 5.5 lakhs. What do you all think?

I would prefer Fiesta 1.6S but cant find any :-(

I saw that man but it would turn out to be expensive for me to buy the car there and get it transferred to karnataka here. BTW if 1.6s in aquarius is available in blr here, I would snap it up.

Bangalore prices are inflated. I would say ask for 4.75/4.7L. Strike the deal if it is 4.7ish.

@toretto

MutantX is right. Go with it if you get it for 4.75l, do not pay more than that.

1. 5 to 5.2L would be a good deal. Many NHCs are coming to the market nowadays.
2. Usually, such symptoms mean that he might be a 'dealer'. Have you checked the RC? Is it genuinely in Company lease? Also, in some companies' lease policies, direct transfer to buyer is not allowed. Re-check this also.
4. If it was maintained well, it won't need a major serice till 70k, IMO.
6. Get your mechanic to check thoroughly. Also check for NCB percentage in Insurance. Since Honda spares and repair are very costly, there are less chances for any accident-repair without insurance claim.
