Planning to sell my Alto as wife wants to upgrade as she’s the one who drives it –
Silver Alto LXI – Jan 2007
No loan
Covered 87000 kms
Insurance valid till 5th April
Rides on 155/55/13 wheels but no alloys, tires could last another 25k as done only 20k (is the 2nd set )
Sony music system with explode speakers
Gurus – please advise what would be an appropriate price range to expect for this. No problem at all with the car, only thing wife thinks is it's nearing the 1 lakh mark and also it's been 5 years she's been driving it so looks forward for a change (Chevrolet Beat - I guess)

5 Lakh is little too high, 4.5 is the right price.

how is exterior condition?

What would be the price of a 1999 UNO diesel? Exterior condition is ok and the interiors are acceptable. The quote is 60k. Is it ok???

22k on an S is slightly unrealistic.
It was bought mostly by enthusiasts, and enthusiasts drive.
this comes to just over 5k a year.
If you can verify it, try and negotiate it and get it.
I have a feeling the S is going to command OHC type premiums in the near future.
If you feel youre overpaying, you will im sure make it up in good resale.
Edit:Yeah, 4-4.5

Do pitch the "out of production" bit.
although, people here on TBHP would pay a premium JUST because of the "out-of-production" status....

I second your note dude, Me too feel the fiesta 1.6S will sure command OHC type premium in near future.
Reg 22k odo, it's genuine however I can't able to negotiate further considering the point "Out Of Prod" because 1.6S is immortal to me.

That seems ok, make sure the vital parts of the car are in good condition. Engine, transmission, AC etc as these are the ones that are really expensive to rectify. Bargain to 50k just for kicks.

Don't think the Ford will neither have the cult status of the OHC nor the resale price of the OHC. It is an ever fast depreciating product simply because of the high cost/non availability of parts. Buying at the lowest possible price is the best bet to minimize losses.

OK.
But will have to disagree on the boldened bit.

@camon: do get the internals checked out before you drop a pretty buck.
pumps, belts, coils etc, the whole bit.
if its all well, and not on its way out, even at 5L, the smiles will outweigh everything!

In bangalore true value are quoting upto 2.1 for 2006 or 2007 car, i am not sure which true value did you find a 2006 alto lxi for 1.85
In Mumbai the Tru value at Phoenix Mall

I saw the wear on the accelerator pedal and break pedal they seem to correctly worn.

I finally got it for 1.75. The people there were quite efficient and good they let me try out different cars. I quite liked a 2007 Alto belonging to SAI Motors itself done 24000 km (management gets a car depending on rank and also gets 40 lit per month free) This was costing 1.99, but then settled for the 2006 one.
However I found the car underpowered.

I have seen this car and if im not wrong it is in Annanagar. The car has taken quite a beating on the exterior, beware of the sunroof as its externally fitted and the lining is coming off, car generally feels underpowered, not the cleanest of interiors. I wouldnt go above 3.60-3.75 for this particular car. Plus if im not wrong this car has done 28-29k kms. You also have dents in all the wrong places which will be difficult to remove.

Hi Govind,

I tried to call you now however you didn't picked it. Anyhow, thanks for the info.

Will check all your points mentioned. Reg dents in wrong places, can you please tell me the places where it has that if you could remember it.

Also how to find it is underpowered. Did you compared with any similiar Fiesta or through your own experience.

Regards.
Rajesh

It was nice talking to you Rajesh. i would be happy to help you out in your hunt. I personally would not go beyond 3.85 for this particular vehicle as :
1. It is a 4 year old Ford.
2. Exterior work to be done and its just not simple tinkering work which is involved. Color matching will be difficult.
3. I am just wary of the sunroof as it can cause a lot of problems especially during the rainy season.

All said and done it is a 1.6s in Aq.Blue and if you are able to seal the deal at 3.85 it will give you enough moolah to get the car back to pristine condition.
With regards to looking at other Fords - Oh Yes I did look at quite a few and infact came across few Ford diesels at very tempting prices(2009 model run 14000 for only 4 lakhs).

Regards

It's slightly too high. I was offered a White V MT Dec 07 model run 48k Kms for 4.5lakhs. Civic resale values have tanked in recent times in Mumbai n AT models are the slowest selling.

So what should be a good price for this car? Can you quote a price that i can bargain with? Sorry, but really am not sure what price to quote, so any help will be appreciated. Another thing, the HONDA logo on the back is missing the H & O letters. I spoke with the Honda SS over at Sewri and they can fix it for 1.2k. Please let me know.
