So If I am buying a resale car for, lets say 1.5 lakhs today and selling it off at 75k after 3-4 years, I incur net loss of 75k i.e. approx. 20k per year. at 1500 pm for petrol (avg), I spend another 18k per year; totaling 38k-40k per year.

If I buy Alto K10 LXi for 3.3L now, and sell for 2L after 4 years, I am incurring loss of 30k per year + 18k for petrol. Plus EMI that I have to pay for the additional upfront cost. However, this gives me better car, new car and tension free days.

Am totally lost, the more I think on this. Earlier it was which car, now it is which car + old or new car.

Psss : Kisise Na Kehna : If I buy used car now, I am saving those addtional bucks for myself when I want to buy one for my self next year (smiley quota over). But thats another discussion. luckily my wife does not read T-bhp posts.
take a look at the non-k10 alto.
i believe the prices are under 3 lacs.
Would also suggest a second consideration of the spark, if opting for a k10 alto.
As far as a used car is concerned, try and stick to the first-choice kinda guys who will give some sort of warranty/coverage.
plus they would also guarantee am inspection which you or me could hardly get done independently.

Usually True Value & First Choice prices will be slightly higher than market rates. That's because they do some servicing on the old car and change the worn out parts with MGP or genuine parts. I guess they also provide a 1 year warranty on the car.

From the website I see that there is almost a reduction of 1L on the Alto price. If you cant/dont want to afford a new car, you could buy this. Mind you a spark will have a lesser value but so will be the FE as well.

PS:: Alto generally has a very good re-sale, so the price looks decent to me. But you could still try to haggle a bit.

Advait,

I'm in the same boat as you are. I'm all the more confused between a new car and a used one. I'm looking for a decent car with a minimum over all 'cost of ownership' over a period of 5yrs (Wagon R Duo is what I've zeroed in on yet). I'm inclined towards opting for a used car just because of the lesser initial costs. At the same time I'm tempted by the low maintenance costs & risk freedom and yes the 'all newness' that one gets from a new car!

But I'd suggest a used (2yrs 30K Km) Alto for you. You'd still sell it for a decent enough value after it did 70K Km. Altos are known for their reliability even after 6yrs and 80K km and least maintenance. And when its a used car, you should buy it in all cash and no EMIs, that saves a lot of peace of mind in though you might face a few hassles with it. When it comes to hassles, its more a matter of luck, a new car might run us into troubles just as much as a used one might.

Hi guys. I currently drive an Innova everyday for around 50kms totally in the city. Ever since the launch of the fortuner and more so after a fantastic mouth watering review by GTO, I have dreamt of owning one. But the 20+ L price tag somehow seemed a little too much. Also I started getting apprehensions whether I will be able to drive it in the city with as much ease as the Innova ( you can also call it more of me trying to convince myself of not buying it). Well so now my Innova has done around 80k kms and we have been planning to change it for a new one for the want of the airbags and ABS which my current Innova lack. Now I have come across a fortuner 2010 model, white colour, done only 9000 kms. The dealer who told me about it is a family friend and we trust him and he says the car is clean. The seller is asking for 18L.

And now the dilemma. 14L OTR for a brand new Innova vs an almost new Fortuner for 18L! what do you guys suggest? Is the price good for the above fortuner or is there some more room for bargaining. Also will driving a Fortuner be too much difficult inside the city?

I plan to sell it in Nov-2011 and expect to do not more than 2K kms additional. So in Nov-2011, it's odo reading should be 12K kms.

Finalised the sale and accepted token amount for sale at 7 lakh rupees to a car dealer. Hope the price is OK.

hi, today went and saw a 2009 EMT with 5600 kms done. The car has plati alloys, leather seats, lcd screen at the back etc.
TD'd the car and it drives good. Well maintained though there are dust inside due to no usage.
They are quoting 9.5 for the car. is this a fair deal? Please help.

Just an update more.

The owner of the vehicle is currently not in India and has entrusted his friend to make the deal. Can you please let me knowif this is possible, wherein a third person can make the deal to me by signing the papers?
Or what all papers should be signed by the original owner itself?

confirm it's a genuine car as in delhi it's a common trick by dealers to hire someone on their behalf and sell the vehicle saying the same things like ur one, owner has gone abroad, it's my company car, it's my brother car etc etc. it fetched them better value.
i would suggest talk to owner on phone just to be more sure

So in that case, if I sell my aug 2010 i10, same model as mobike008, I can get 4 lakh???
Just testing waters, to know what my vehicle is worth.
