As regards maintenance, it is rather inexpensive to maintain. the hyundai A.S.S. is spot on and is very economical. its parts are readily available. However, since it is an old model and there are rumours of it being phased out, do not expect a great resale from it. But if you are looking at something like a 3-4 year horizon, it would be a good buy. The legroom at the rear is not commensurate to it's length though. All in all, you wouldn't go wrong with this car.

Thanks Harsha! how much did you pay for your Accent? and what FE are you getting.
I am planning to use it for 1-2 years only, so resale is also a concern for me.

Hi Mark,
I bought the 2000 accent last year for 2.3. That is the market price out here. But i found it to be a good deal because the car had done just 29K kms. Do u think i paid too much guys?
In Delhi, you can find a 2000 accent for less than 2 i guess. But even an old model accent is no probs because the car has never really got much of an upgrade since its launch.
I am very happy with my car. The mileage on petrol in Banglr's crazy traffic is about 9-10 and in highways is 13 (with a reasonably heavy pedal).
Since i bought it for 2.3 last year, i can be confident that even after a couple of years it will fetch me atleast 1.5 since it is an accent and not an 800, at the end of the day. What say fellow TBhpians?
but if you have a 1-2 year horizon, i would still not recommend it to you. a phase out, which is likely, will kill your resale.
cheers,
Harsha

Came across a 2005 make Hyundai Accent GLS, done 36K with audio system (pioneer all including sub woofer), keyless central locking with sensors. Owner is asking for 3.5L. Looks like a fair deal. He is also ready to renew insurance and put in new tyres.

Am tempted to go for a bigger car, but not sure about Accent's durability and maintenance costs. Car is from gurgaon and owned by a colleague's business partner.

What do you think. Carwale.com says its a good price! price difference between this and Swift LDI will make up for the fuel costs is what i feel.

What price can I expect on resale after 1 year? any idea?
Hi, Try to get the price down by atleast another 25K and put the tyres by yourself, that way you can buy the tyres of your choice and liking and maybe even upsize if you are not concerned about mileage.

Question To Sell - Or Not to Sell?

guys, Let me make it simple

I OWN a Alto LX, June-2003, 45K ODO, Petrol + Lovato Gas Kit, No Hypothecation, Single Owner(me), OEM Tyres and Battery (may last another 6mths), 2 tiny dents on bonnet and 1 big dent in left rear door. Simple fabric Seat cover, Clutch needs a overhaul in next 5K Kms, ICE - Pioneer 3050UB CD Player, 2 JBL 937 Rear, 2 JBL 4" Front Dash, 1 Sony 2Ch Amp, 1 Pioneer Steering REMOTE, Scoshe Wiring and sound damping at Anwar's Bangalore.

What can I sell it for MAX?

I have decided on the Indigo CS Dicor and am confused should I sell my ALTO without ICE or With ICE.

Can I use the Alto ICE setup on a Indigo? Will it Suffice?

REASON---

I am quoted 1.6Lakhs W/o ICE and 1.75Lakhs with ICE. I spent nearly 17 On my ICE and dont want to part from it so early. (ICE'd on 1-Mar-08).

Resale Gurus, Please advise.

Good price santosh. I would suggest give it away with the ICE since you will be getting 15 out of the 17k spent, ICE has very little resale value.

i think the price is correct if it has done its usual 50K kms or so... do let us know the condition of tyres and battery and the mileage it has done. if it belongs to a friend, i hope you should not have any reason to suspect the odo reading.
cheers,
Harsha

I have bought the Accent for Rs 3.35L finally! Plus insurance to be renewed by the owner as well.
Got new shoes for the car today (Michelin XM1 - 175/70/R13) and alloys.
Cost me 17.5K for the whole thing (9K for alloys + 2k each for XM1s)
But there is some wobbling at low speeds with the new tyres is what I felt!
Will have to check this out.

Default How much can I get for My 2004 Santro.

Hi,

I wanted a quick advice on the resale value of my Santro Xing. I am in US and want to sell this car off as nobody is using it in India. I dont know what should be the asking price, any advice will be very helpful.

Car was purchased in Nov'2004, has about 40k kms. I think its the second model from the top, it has front power windows but no Tape or CD. Exterior is in OK condition, shows its age. Color is aqua green ( or is it called sage green). Sorry my details sound vague, but I've only driven this car occassionally when I visited India.

What should be the asking price for this car?

for you best bet is.. New Cars, Used Cars, Buy Cars, Sell Cars, New Car Prices, Used Car Prices - CarWale.com India. in my experience, the carwale prices are very good indication of actual worth.
