Jayant, Welcome to T-BHP.

I suggest that you use the Advanced Search feature with "S10" as the keyword in TITLES only.

Lots of threads already exist for the same.

BTW, I bought a 2003 S10, 31K kms done in April for 2L.

Cheers,

You may want to try this New Cars, Used Cars, Buy Cars, Sell Cars, New Car Prices, Used Car Prices - CarWale.com India to get an indicative price of a 2003 S10 that has run 34k kms. At the outset, 3L looks very pricey. I reckon it should be around 1.75 lacs or so, if in the best of shape.

seems like a rip of at that price!! sensible price should be around half or a little more than half of the quoted price.

1.5L seems to be the right price. The owner is not willing to sell the car if he is quoting twice it's market value.

Slightly OT:

i bought my 2003 GTX with 44K on the odo for 1.75L (owner was quoting 2L) - IMO 3L is too high.

I agree with most of the members 1.5 seems to be the right price.

Thanks Shahnawaz and Wanderlust.

1.5-2L is my estimate. Don't know the condition of the car yet as I'll be able to see it only on Saturday.

Will keep you updated after my rendezvous.

Shahnawaz - Looks like you'll have to be my buddy (being an S10 owner) and hope you don't mind.

Well, since then I am looking for one now. There's a seller quoting for 3L for an S10 in Bangalore which according to me is way too much. He is the first owner and the car has clocked about 34K. I have taken an appointment this saturday to meet the guy and the car.

GTX/S10 owners, I need your help here -

1) What would be the realistic price for the car?
2) What should I specifically check in the car apart from the usual checks and the car number (among 500 lot)? I mean anything specific to S10.
3) I've heard a lot about Greentracks for check up and servicing. Its a bit far from my residence. Bangaloreans, do you know any place near Mekhri circle or Hebbal?

Thanks!

Jayant

Had a look at the car. It's definitely well maintained and the owner certainly has a lot of pride in it, no wonder the hefty price tag. I tried to bring him down to reality of the market conditions and Fiat's resale values but in vail. He did not baulk at all.

Will let go of it for now :(

Will keep you updated on my hunt.

Cheers!
Jayant

Raj , 3.5-3.75 would be a decent deal. Visit carwale for more details.
Regarding your new car kindly start a new thread , Look at Verna CRDI, Optra Magnum, Fiesta TDCI.

I am looking for a used Swift Vxi (white) in Bangalore for quite a long time now. Found a white 2007 Vxi with ABS in Firstchoice with 33K on odo. They intially told me 4.75L and within few minutes of negotiation, they came to 4.40L. I checked Carwale and it says 3.90L!!! I have decided to stick to the Carwale price.

Used car dealers here quote 50K-75K more then the actual value and then they say its slightly negotiable!!!

Hi adi99,

I think, the carwale prices are also manipulated[No offense]. Most of the used car's websites are maintained and managed by the dealers. Please dont presume the prizes in those sites are correct.

Also, the prices in these sites does not reflect reality. It doesn't take in to consideration the following

1) resale value
2) market demand
3) cost of maintenance
4) Quality of that particular car.
5) Features in these cars etc.

There are threads available in BHP to find approximate prices for used cars, please do a search.

My understanding is by default used car has a depreciation of 20% per year (On road price).

Additions
2k- 4k [Max 10K]for good tyres.
5k- 10K - for nice maintenance & car looking good.
Max 5k for alloy wheels.
Low Mileage - 5K
and so on.

Subtractions
1) Not in production - 20K - 30K
2) No market demand - 10k - 15k
3) Mileage

Please note that these calculations doesn't suite all cars and the numbers mentioned above are not accurate. It gives you the benchmark and rest depends on the buyers & sellers instincts.

All the best for your car search!.

Thanks,
Pradeep

Thank you sir...definately makes sense. But as I said dealers here quote much more than what an individual is selling. Since Carwale is recommended by most of them, I use it as a negotiating tool with the dealers.
