Any sane man would quote highly unrealistic price for a very low run car. But in your case it's the converse. Going by the images you shared I've this gut feeling that the car had done more than 21k.

When you go and check the check in person, the next time, do look for the date of manufacture of tires. The first two digits represent the week and the last two represent the year. For instance, 1107 indicates that the tire was manufactured in the 11th week of the year 2007.

All the best!

There was a white Yeti 4x4 Elegance sitting around at a dealer in Koramangala Bangalore. Done 25K Kms or 27K Kms. 1 year old. Asking price 17 lacs.

Wonder if this isnt a heavily inflated rate because one can actually go and buy a Brand New 4x4 Elegance (as of last week's pricing enquiries with dealers) at about 20 on road after discounts etc.

Checked-out and TD-ed the car yesterday. Both bumpers have been painted, boot-lid and a door touched up - they did mention this. But we could anyway make this out too. Post the paint-job, the car looks neat from exterior. 26K kms done and owned by a Dr who exchanged this for the ANHC-AT. The car is good to drive and gear-shifts are pretty seamless. Tyres are good with quite some life left. Interiors have been cleaned up and some perfume applied. The price listed in their brochure was 4.4lakhs and when we asked for final price, he said 4.25lakhs. I am sure we can get this for 4lakhs - friend to decide over the next couple of days.

Checked the service-history and nothing odd stands out - the car has come in for periodic service each costing between 2600 to 3000. Only concern is that the service duration is 6months or 5K kms, while even for an Alto the duration is 1year and 10K kms. So basically double the maintenance cost of a car in its range.

Thanks, again for the pointers, vigsom and karanraheja !!!

One gets attractive used car deals only on 3+ year old cars. On petrols, one could save up to 50% off price and on diesels, one could save 30 - 35%. Although the owner has priced it fairly, its not such a great deal for the buyer.

Gents,

I have paid advance for a Hyundai getz GVS 2005 model from Advantage Hyundai. The car has clocked 58k on the odo. checked the service history and the ODO is genuine. It is a single owner and comprehensive insurance is available from TATA AIG and the paper also mentioned 20% NCB.

Advantage is also offering me 1 year warranty on this car for engine and gear box.
The cost of the car is 2.3 lacs and hope this is near to market value. We took a test drive for around 15kms and ran good.

Please let me know your views on the same

Thanks

This vehicle has done 25-27K Kms in one year - which means an average running of at least 2300-2400 kms per month. Hence I thought it to be a high price.
Ideally the price should have been about 14-15 lacs in my opinion on account of the higher mileage done per month. The vehicle is almost certainly driver driven which is one more reason for concern. It must have hit its second service as well but whether thats been done yet or not is unclear.

Anyway, good luck to the buyer of that vehicle because personally I would be a bit wary if I were in the market for the same.

Fortunately for you (being an owner of Yeti) and unfortunately for the rest of us, we are in Bangalore!

Premium diesel cars holds its value very well here. If you are not convinced, take a look at the Bangalore used car prices of Fortuner, Laura, 3 Series etc and compare it with that of Mumbai.

Is 7 - 7.25 Lac fair price for preowned T Jet, 6 months old, 7K on odo? Lookinig at finalizing the deal soon. If not this I have made arrangements to pick up Dzire ZDi. The mentioned car has reverse parking sensors and 3M coating and some sun filming done.
Rgds.

a seven year old hyundai means corrosion might have set in at some points on the body
that apart the getz is a top class product with great space
one more point - 20% ncb means some claims have been made in preceeding years please check that out
good luck !!

What can I realistically expect (from a dealer) for an i10 1.2 Kappa Sportz model purchased in April 2009 (manufactured in Mar 2009). Expecting to exchange it at a dealer for a C segment Sedan.

- The car is registered in Delhi but is in Bangalore now.
- Self driven all along with 20000 KM on board.
- Accessories added are Autoform seat covers, fog lamps (from Hyundai dealer), remote control (from Hyundai), sun-films and reverse parking sensors (these I can remove), anti-rust treatment done (again at Hyundai) and brand new Amaron zero maintenance battery (replaced in Jan 2012).
- Car is in quite good condition with insurance claims once just to replace front windshield. Car has been driven throughout only on City roads (NCR, Bangalore).
- All services regularly done at Hyundai Service Center (in Noida and in Bangalore).

One of my friend bought a 2007 (or 2008) Getz Petrol with 32K in the odo for 2.25 lakhs. The car came with minor scratches and new set of tyres. I feel the price quoted by the dealer is a little higher.
However, Getz is a pretty good car!

Agree. I sold my 2006 Getz in Dec 2010 (30k km) for 2.3 lakhs. I was quoted a 1.75L for a Nov 2005 GLS Getz in Chennai (45k km) recently.
One should also be vary of the spare parts availability since the car is out of production. I had tough time in 2010 trying to procure the seat adjustment cable which got cut.

Buying second hand vehicle which has been phased out is a BIG NO NO

It's better and wiser to shell out more for a running brand/vehicle.

I am planning to sell my i10 Kappa Sportz , its a 2009 model (Registered in 30 Dec 2009). Has run 32k. What price should i quote for the car?
The car is maintained well, small scratches in a place or two, one accident 7 months ago, nothing major, but have changed all necessary parts.
Just got the tires changed to Yokohama A drive. Your views would help me decide on a price and I don't want to set the price too high/low.

Thanks.
