Planning on a 99 honda city exi AT.

Is there any reliable mechanic near Jaynagar, Bangalore to get a feedback on the car and an estimate on any expenses.

If any team-bhp member is ready to do that this saturday, that would be great

I would strongly suggest staying away from the AT, if you want to buy the City, then buy the normal manual version, someone I know just sold his AT for some 40-50k as the clutch repair, would have costed him more than the car would sell for, and the clutch was not available even at the dealerships here in Kolkata.

How did / Why did you do 3 services for a car which did only 5500 kms? As far as I know, first service is at 1000 kms, second one at 5000 kms & 3rd one at 10K kms !

I Keep travelling a lot. So couldnt get much time to Drive the car.

Thought that those Free Services will go for toss & the warranty will also be affected so i got the car serviced before i could clock the required Kms for the Free Services.

I can't seem to understand why all Skoda's are seen as liabilities. Its like calling the whole pond bad because of a few bad fish. I'm sure every other make of car has the same set of issues. My car for one (touch wood) has been awesome since day one. barring the A/C condenser and the turbo, I've had zero trouble with the car. On the contrary it gives me a consistent mileage of 18+ kmpl in city driving. I got an offer for 6.6L on the 29th from a dealer. At that price I'd much rather pass that car on to my mom and let her use it, and let it depreciate completely over the next 4years and then sell it. Since the residual value remains the same.

His words were 'log toh jawaab bhi nahi detey hai'. I hope this doesnt remain the case with owners who have cared for their cars so well. Unfortunately, I would not want to be the one risking it either!

Guys,

Posting on behalf of a friend.

He is on a look out for a Getz crdi with no idea about the variants and stuff. From Carwale I could gather the crdi was Getz Prime GVS 1.5

How much would it cost in Delhi and any idea about availability?
Also, how many kms should he be looking at (minimum) ? Around 50k?

How much would an Indian make '96/'97, well maintained Merc W124 E250D Merc in Bangalore and Mumbai cost? Is this really a hassle free car as I read in many stories on this forum?

Getz CRDi had only one version when it was in production. So what you have seen in carwale is right! Try to get a car which has done around 40K kms. Assuming that your friend will clock an average of 20K kms every years, he can use it for 3 years. And being a Hyundai engine, I would not keep it beyond 90K kms as well. But if there are owners who has clocked more than that and if the experience is still trouble free, they could comment.

Getz has a low resale value. I experienced that when i was on lookout for a pre-owned car. Its due to their insanely low mileage. But there are best comfort cars in their category with European styling.

For a 4 year old car clocking around 40K+
best condition ~ 2 to 2.2 L
good condition ~ 1.8 to 2L

Duke, do you own an Octavia? from what I have heard, Octavia is the only car from Skoda which has a higher state of reliability compared to the rest. Ans also I have seen people selling it as soon as they clock around 70-80K kms since I have read these cars give hell lots of issues after 80K kms.

Please dont flame me, this is what I have read and heard about Skoda ! And as a consumer, I would never every try for a *used* Skoda car however sweet the deal is going to be. With all due respect to Skoda owners, this is my personal opinion.

Spectre, I guess you are talking about Getz Petrol (1.3). I believe Dry Ice was referring to Getz CRDi. CRDi will not have very less resale as its one stonker of an engine and mileage is also quite good. The only negatives you can point to here is that its out of production and hence try and bargain for a better deal.

@ swiftnfurious - Yes, i overlooked the CRDi part. Thanks for clarifying.
But Getz is not a fast selling pre-owned car so its worth a good amount of haggling.

While Duke can of course answer as and when he reads your post, I feel I can also contribute to the topic under discussion.

Based on my own ownership of an Octy and those of 2 of my friends I can say that an Octavia is as reliable a car as any other. My car is 5 years old and both my friends have clocked over 1 lakh kms in their cars and they still drive as good as new. Nothing has bombed in any of the 3 cars till date (touchwood) and the only things replaced are timing belts (at 70k kms) clutch with DMF and front suspension at 90k kms. The average running cost (including the cost of all services, spares and fuel) is around Rs 3.5/km (all 3 are diesels). Ask any of us and we wouldn't swap our rides for any other car from the same segment. I have the fully loaded L&K version and all bells and whistles - sunroof, xenons, heated front seats, audio, steering controls, car's security system et al - work perfectly well to this date.

There might be a perception out there that any Skoda shouldn't be touched with a barge pole but that perception is ill-conceived and absolutely without solid foundations.
