The problem is magnified when one hears about the "awesome" *** stories of Skoda. I have heard a few nightmares outside of TBHP too and unfortunately cannot attribute them to any vested interests either. Moreover, if this is the prevailing setiment now, I dont see how it would be any better when I pass the car on (resale)

No doubts raised about your cars in particular - they would be well maintained and I hope they work fine in the future too. However, I would not want to risk it and see the 'I told you so' look later. Its my personal opinion, no offence meant to anyone (after all its my money). Unfortunately this opinion does seem to be shared by a few others too.

Thanks for the replies swiftnfurious and Spectre. Saw one in our own classifieds and the owner is quoting 4.9!! Its a 2008 model clocked some 30k I think.

Another car he happened to check with some 45k on the odo, owner wanted 4.3!!

Though I believe the prices could be negotiated, it would be really difficult, if not impossible, to bring it down to 2.5 - 3 levels. His budget.

I guess, will ask to look for palio sdx instead. What do you guys think?

Very few Palio 1.3 MJD have been sold. You will be lucky enough to find one. Also, go for a palio only if you are fine with the A.S.S. of FIAT which is quite a suspect. Palio even though dated now still is a good car and considering that it didn't do well in the market you should get a good deal.

Rajinibm, you can quote 3.65-3.75 L considering that it is close to 1.5 years old. Also the fact that fiat has a bad resale value. Please try to find an individual buyer rather than a dealer.

If its me & I have the budget, I would pick the 4.9 one considering that it has done only 30K kms and its just 60K rupees more. But I seriously don't think you can bring it down to 3 lakh range at any cost. Am sure because the Getz CRDi was almost 6.5 - 7 lakh OTR in most of the cities for a brand new car. I believe its better to look for a palio SDX, but again the problem there is that most of these cars will be bought by proper Fiat Fans and I have my reservations on these guys selling it @ 3 lakhs. If 3 lakhs is his budget for a Diesel car, he could look at the old Palio (1.9 D) and that would come in that range. But I am not sure whats the availability of parts and all for this engine.

Thanks for your prompt reply!I was looking at around 3.5-3.6 lakhs and today had called up the guys who put ads in the newspaper for buying cars.Majority of them said they would check the price and call back - but no calls came.

The only call came from Mahindra who said they would offer 3.3 lakhs!

I have installed remote lock, rear sensors, blue tooth music system, seat covers etc totalling close to 20-25k so was thinking the price quoted by you seems fair!lets see!

How much would a vista 09 model cost (with around 30k on odo). Quadrajet that is. They arent many available in the market. so hard to guess the price.

swift vdi holds its resale value incredibly
there are very few that come into the market in bangalore and all of them appear to be commanding a high price. unfortunately bangalore has the worst inflated prices for used cars (and new cars) in India.
I would still say 5 lacs is high. try and beat him down to 4.5 and you should have yourself a super deal. else, just hang in there a bit and wait for another one.

Looking forward to quick responses. Thanks !

You could get it for 50 grand less than the quote on account of 2 owners. but please check it out properly at a Skoda Service Centre before committing to purchase.

Hi,

I am in a dilemma, need help of fellow T-Bhpians, I bought a Swift Ldi on March 2009. At that time I was started looking for a car at 2.5lac and ended up with a 5.7 lac car! I was planning to go in for a Vdi but the mental block of 6 lac car got the best of me. Now tho I am really happy with my car, I feel unhappy with the fact that it doesn't have small nicks & nacs like the Vdi viz, power windows, a little colour full dash, rear seat head rest etc.

I planned to live with it but with the new launches, the polo has caught my eye. Is it a good plan to sell a 20 month old car (which i have cared for like any first time car owner)?

Also what price can i expect for a Swift Ldi in bangalore? Things you may want to know,
- Music system worth 25k
- Odo reading 14k
- Auto cop, sunfilm, wheel cap etc
- 4 yr extented warranty paid
- Car is banaglore reg
- others: car full service history avialabel, car has been on shell fuel from day one. Basically, cared from heart.

Carwale highest quote is 4.75lacs.

Looking forward for your inputs.

Hi All,

Today I saw a palio diesel. The details are below

Model: palio 1.9D ELX, Sept 2004
KMS: 1,12,000(you read it correctly! one lac twelve thousand kms!)

The vehicle is kept in very good condition. Single owner
The owner expects a price of 1.9Ls. I did ask till 1.5L,

Now the question:

Should I reconsider my pricing???
Is it advisable to go for such high run vehicle. I did have the mechanic check the car and he assured that it is in mint condition.
Please help
