^ I think that is a good price if the vehicle is clean (read accident free). A new LDi in Mumbai should be around 6.5l+ and Dezire has a waiting period. Even if it is a 2010 model a 1l+ knockoff on the on road price is a good deal. Be prepared to shell out an additional 15k for the impending insurance though.

sir, 30 L is pretty less. What have you quoted is correct, or might be more.

Default To Laura or not to skoda ???

Hello there ...

One among the first post people around .

So a BIG hi to all Bhpians ..

I am planning to buy a second hand sedan.

So went around the second hand dealers in Chennai and saw a few skoda octavia's . ( fell in love with this car that my previous boss had owned )

Octavia rider 2004 - 73k - second owner - 4 lakhs

Octavia l & k 2006 - 65k - first owner - 6 lakhs

These two cars I had zeroed in as these two had decent service records .

Other cars were totally zero or when asked about service and insurance history , the dealers did not respond properly .

So while searching I came across a Laura with 69k on the odo and full service history and new tyres, while tding I saw that noises were there in the suspension ( the tip to switch off the audio when test driving a car was very useful ) during bumps et al.

I can stretch the budget to 8.5 lakhs . Is it advisable to get the Laura or go in for one of the octavias

Or just run away from the skodas altogether.

We want a diesel sedan , we currently have a swift vdi. And this is going to be our second car . We travel atleast 2000 kms a month .

Anyways , am addicted to this site and looking to Pete my swift soon .

On launch of the F10, the dealers liquidated the old 5 series at a 10lac off the list. So that made it about 39 lacs on road.
The max you can expect is 32/33 lacs. Understand, a person buying a 30+ lac car would consider that its an old shape and tech.

Hi Amneo,

Welcome to T-Bhp..!!

IMO, Skoda's are excellent vehicles but backed poor Service centers that's what makes many of them here think twice before owning Skoda, otherwise I think it is a total paisa vasool gaadi.

Reliability wise, well, every maker's car does break down, doesn't it ?

I prefer Laura over Octavia for the more gizmos you along with it. Take one you zeroed on to the good mech and have it checked before buying it.

Else, do consider buying new vehicles, with the budget you have (+/- few thousands) you can get Fiesta, Verna, Manza, Sx4 and Vento D trendline

Happy Motoring,
Rajesh

Thanks.
The onroad price of the 530d was about 50L. So first year depreciation will be about 20%, which brings the price to 40L. Second year 10%, so that brings the price to about 35-36L.

The thing is, high end cars depreciate a lot, so normal rules may not apply.

Anyone has any view on this. Help will be highly appreciated.

An SX4 ZXi in Bangy should get more than that I guess. The basic reason is the highest RT in Bangalore.

Please call up true value and check the price for this car. That should the ideal price be +/- 10,000/. I personally expect a 5L for this car imagining the current OTR would be at least 9L.

Default Re: To Laura or not to skoda ???

I would stay away from the Laura, since its got much more electronics. And also the PD engine is more delicate than the Octavia's tdi.

Between the 2 I would say the Octy. Unless you get a low run Laura and the service history etc is known. Otherwise it could end up being a big expense after a few months.

The problem with high run cars is you never know how the previous owner treated it, how and when it was serviced etc. For a Jap car you could still take the chance, but not for a complicated car like the Laura.

You did not mention if it was a Laura Petrol (TSI) or not, but i would advise get the Laura completely checked at Vinayak and get an estimate how much you would need to spend after buying.

I've heard of them going at 22-25L for 3-4 yrs old & 30-60K kms. The max 've heard is a 3yr old 530d with around 25k kms at 28L.
Cheers

I would say realistically speaking you could get maybe a couple lacs over 30 for the car. What we have also failed to factor in with the depreciation calculation (apart from the factthat it is a luxury vehicle and will hence depreciate faster) is that there is a new model (thew current gen. 5 series) on the block now. That by itself is sufficient to knock off 10% from the previous gen model's resale value.

regular servicing is pretty decent. but accidents, parts, etc. will cost you dearly! if u just want an initial upfront cost but have dough to pay for repairs (accidents, part failures) then it is a very good choice. don't expect the ownership to be cheap just because the initial cost is less.

So here's the data:

3. Santro Eco 2008/2009 (did not note this well) - Black 28,000KM Rs.3,30,000 Hyundai Advantage no dents and minor scratches, pretty clean interiors too. The car looked really promising: black color, 1yr Warranty + 3services et al. This deal would need me to stretch my budget by around Rs50,000. Given that a brand new Santro Eco comes for Rs.4,67,000, Im not really sure if this were a good bargain.


4. Alto LXi 2009 Brown 15,000Km Rs.2,00,000 Dads friend is its second owner and did not use it for more than 10,000 Km. Minor dents, sure looks like a 2yr old car. The car isnt LPG and neither does it have the space or power that a WagonR or Santro provides, and it would be a bit of a compromise.

Yet, this deal seems really tempting for quite a few reasons:
a. Carwale evaluation for a 15000Km driven 2009AltoLXi is around 2,50,000. It doesnt take the number of previous owners into consideration though.
b. Wed buy this from a close acquaintance and hassles of ownership transfer would be real easy.
c. Id save around Rs.80,000 in which I could get an LPG kit for around 25,000 and tuck away the rest of my hard earned money into some other investments!!


So dear gurus of TeamBHP, what do you say about the Santro Eco (#3 above) and what about the Alto (#4 above)?
Unusual to TeamBHP, I did not see any replies. :-( Its okay!
I finally booked a used Black Santro Eco 2008 - 28000Km for 3,15,000 @ Hyundai Advantage. I'm to take the delivery today or tomorrow. The car comes with 1yr/20,000 Km warranty on engine and gearbox + 2 free services.

There were a few small issues with the car in its present condition but the dealer said he'd get them all fixed in the service today.

So what do you say about the deal?
