Just sold my Optra 1.6 GM fitted CNG for 1.5 Lacs. 2003 December model, 75k driven. Single owner.

Felt terrible letting her go at that price but wasn't getting any buyers despite its pristine condition

2 lakhs or slightly above it should be a good quote.
What's the condition of the battery and tyres? Service history?

what could be a good asking price?
Check the service records and try finding out why this has been put on sale.BTW,keep in mind that VDI has a long waiting period.For a 2008 model,I'd stick my neck and say that Rs4.25L would be a good price too(Assuming,the car is in really good condition)
Bargain hard!

Ford Ikon Flair. 2005 Model. Approx 50k on odo. Bangalore registration. Black color. Car seems to be in very good condition with new tyres and no visible dents. Few very minor scratches. What should be the approximate price? Getting a quote of 2.4 Lakhs.

Is this from the dealer or some other local workshop ? Try finding out in the market about the linkage bush kit and ask a local workshop how much they would charge. The work shouldn't take more than 2 hours to do.

Hi Guys,
I test drove a OHC 1.5 EXi 2002 in Hyderabad. 1L Kms done. Good condition. Its from Honda Terrace. They are stuck at a price at 2.6L. The car has nearly 10K work to be done atleast including battery replacement. However, there is a small dot crack on the windshield. I test drove it twice, looks good. Met the head mechanic also. He says that car is in great condition. Problem is I dont even know if the engine compression and other stuffs are in place or not.
However the test drive was satisfying, except the suspension change is coming in next year. No clutch slippage, the engine revs great (it was fun). No mechanical sound from body (just a lil rattle from dash, livable). Small replacements in dash like clock etc. The entire steering rack was replaced recently (saw the invoice). You think that price is justified for it ? (2.6L)

check Service history if available.
10k has been estimated by you, or the dealer?.if dealer, easily double it.
"dot" crack?
if its a small funnel shaped, like from a small stone(abt 2-5mm across), it will spread quite soon into full fledged across-the-screen crack(happened to my car.)
why was the rack replaced?
if it went out slowly, and the car was mobile with a bad rack, what else did it "damage" enough to give you expenses in the future?

And last, open the bay, look at all the hoses and the connecting points for any discolorations, or too much of a clean-up op in spots.
2.6 seems a bit steep.
did you go gung-ho about the car in front of the dealer?

Thanks Bro. I just told him that car looks good. Nothing else. He told me that glass can be replaced in insurance. I would ask the owner to get it claimed and fixed. Wont take that headache on myself. Its a small dot type mark. Maybe a stone at speed or something might have hit (assumption).

He just called and gave me a 10K discount and said the car is going out by tomorrow afternoon if I don't book it. So now its 2.5L+service. Again, its just my estimate that service would be 10K (new battery, oil, general repairs). They say that there is nothing to worry about as mechanics have already checked it and theres nothing to replace. The problem is I don't know any expert to take along with me. I am already at the Honda place so if they are playing tricks then basically the entire Honda team (sales+mechanics) is doing it. I have no other option but to handle it this way.

I just remembered, there was some noise coming while test drive. He said there is some belt that has to be greased. Sometimes the water gets in it and it starts making noise. Do you know what is it ?

Other option is to look for individual cars and then take it to S.S.

Wish I had someone expert going along.

My santro used to make some noise , a screeching noise, sometimes which is perennial to quite a lot of cars.
mechanics say its the ac belt.This is the one which can be greased

the other is the serpentine belt which which sometimes makes that noise.
and i know for 120% that THAT should not be greased.

This is authorised honda pre-owned, yeah?
they must be giving some sort of guarantees.

Dude, really sorry cant help you too much.
I'm just guiding you by my own experience of buying a used car.

Check for dried spots on the carpets/see if CD player actually plays cds/see if the tyre in the boot is from a different batch/brand from the ones on the wheels.


PS:Checked on carwale for 2002 city exi done 100000 km.
dealer value,excellent condition comes to 2.11.
Individual seller : 2.26.
Just FYI.
Found it to be accurate for the range, usually over.
Think about it

Thanks a lot. Actually the resale in Hyderabad is on a higher side. I've seen horrible citys going out for over 2L. I'll check those as well. The biggest problem is that I cannot take it to any other service center. If the technical guys are lying out there, I simply cannot do anything. I would have to take it as a luck.
But lets see, even 2.5 is very expensive. If he makes it for 2.4L with new windshield then I might consider seriously.
Thanks again for help.

these ARE rates for hyderabad, for the car in question, in "EXCELLENT" condition.
Goto a mechanic specializing in Honda citys.Give a couple of hundred bucks and take him with you to the dealer.
Its to be expected.they cant make a brouhaha over that.
However, if they do, it points you in the correct direction--->OUT!
