I sold my 2003 Santro LP Zipplus - Forest Dew Color - 60K approx on odometer to Mahindra First Choice for 1.3L. I didn't have the time or inclination to take the trouble to sell it myself. It was a hassle free experience with Mahindra and thought getting 35% of my original purchase price after 8 years is not a bad deal!

Cesc seems to have taken my comment too personally

I was mentioning about the BIG HOLE in the pocket from my experience with 3 Octavias owned by my friends and one family member.

None of them had a pleasant experience with the service guys and one friend was asked to even replace the flywheel at 90K which actually put a HUGE HOLE in his pocket. IIRC the service bill came to 80K approx. He paid the bill and asked the used car section of the same service centre to sell the car off. He did not even drive out the car from there.

Octavia is purely a driver's car! I love that brand for the superb handling, dynamics, fit & finish and classy design. Story changes the moment some part fails and you start dealing with the service guys.

Good luck once again.
Didn't take your comments personally buddy . Was just contributing my bit to the question. As it is with you - I also speak from my own and friends experiences. Two of my close buddies drive an Octy with 100k+ kms on the odo. Their cars still drive great and so does mine (touchwood again).

Octy's service manual receommends only a change of gear oil at 100k kms - nothing else. If you know where to get your car serviced then that is a less than 1k job. So the 1L km service (in fact there is nothing like a 1L km service as far as the Octy is concerned) doesn't pinch your pocket.

Parts like clutch (with flywheel) do not have a set replacement schedule. If the original clutch on your friend's Octy lasted for 90k kms then I would say thats good. Clutch with flywheel costs 48k at A** - you can get the same done outside (with equal/better quality parts) for 24k.

Personally I wouldn't touch Skoda A** even with a barge pole. The cost of spares there is atrocious. IF you know a good service setup outside and a known source for spares then your experience of owning a Skoda gets a whole lot easier.

I'm posting this on behalf of my colleague. He's a frequent traveller. He has a family of 4 (including him). He has a budget of 10 Lakhs. He wants a diesel SUV/MUV. He like the idea of owning a Bolero CRDe which is around 7.6L on-road in Bangalore. He'll make few changes to its interior by spending around 1.5-2L so that it's more comfy. I however think there can be a better option that this. And I think you guys know it. So let me know as to what all can be his option.

Hello all.. Need little help here. I'm planning to sell my car (Baleno Vxi 2005) but I'm unable to decide on the price. The prices I've seen in TBHP classified are in the range of 4Lakh and the dealers are quoting around 2.6-2.8L. I was thinking of around 3.2/3.3L. Is this a realistic price? Also, having alloys, leather seat covers and music system have any impact on the final price?

A Scorpio mHawk SLE (with ABS) is a much better vehichle than the Bolero Eagle.

As Airwind mentioned, Scorpio Sle is your best bet, Consider the following:

Bolero Storm OTR in Bangalore is : 7.6L + Another 1.5L to change the suspension to make the ride more comfortable = 9L approx

Scorpio SLe is around 10.3L in Bangalore, this comes with ABS, but in bolero you dont have an option of ABS.

Plus, everything in scorpio is factory fitted, so you dont have to alter anything = Peace of Mind.

But, owning and drving a Bolero is a different feel all together

Other option is Tata Safari, which offers much better comfort for 5 people. But please do check with the current Safari owners for the maintenance and niggles part.



Hope this helps.

Thanks AirWind and 2500cc. Even I've asked him to go for a Scorpio or a safari, heck even a Sumo Grande. But he doesn't like the floating-in-the-boat feeling of all these vehicles. :P

Neat Bolero 2500cc

Hi Airwind, thanks a lot for the information. This really would help me to put a up a realistic figure for my car too. I think I should be able to get somewhere around 3.1/3.2L considering 3.5L for 2005 Baleno. Am I right?

Saw a Swift Vdi 2007, ~50K KM seller asking 3L - is the deal good?
What are things that I need to check ? I'll check accident history and service history but any point specific to Swift D which needs to be checked?

With a heavy heart, am selling the Baleno. Maruti true-value has, after much haggling offered 2.10 lakh. It's a Sept 2005 Vxi, 59,000km, battery a year old, Michelin tyres good for another 10k kms, clean as a whistle, with a JBL amp 4-speaker system. I know I could get a little more, but the peace of mind of Truevalue is tempting me. Any advice?

Seems like a good price for a VDI in Kolkata, if it was in BLR, there would have been a queue of 10ppl to buy a Swifit VDI at that price.
IF it's a dealer quoted price, negotiate by another 15-20K Rs if possible.

Apart from the above check for Tyres + suspension parts.
Most importantly Battery, For a diesel swift new battery is very expensive ( around 7K+ Rs)
