Depends on the condition of the car. I would first get it checked by a mechanic and satisfy myself that there is not much parts to be replaced and find out the rough estimate for getting it back to shape since Baleno parts are expensive and difficult to source. The car will come cheap, anywhere between 1-1.25L, but the cost of maintenance is high, think about it.

Guys that's quite a differencebetween the two estimates.. Carwale suggests ~ 1.6 lac. Assuming 20K for a tyre change and 5K for misc expenses, I now think 1.35 should be reasonable.
esteem_lover, any specific reason for suggesting 1-1.25 lacs?

why do you wish to sell such a nice car for buying a verna?

Rapid is okay though.

Fiat deperication is very high, if you get a fellow bhpian paying a good reasonable amount thats the best option.

easily keep 1.25lakh deperication for a 2011 Spec Fiat.

The Punto is good but has number of negatives too.
1) I find the seats very hard, not really comfortable.
2) The clutch is awkward as it comes "out" a lot more than other cars. I am 6 ft. 2 inches and have find it uncomfortable.
3) The noise levels above speeds of 80-100Kmph are bad, very not comfortable on long drives (we regularly drive on the highway).
4) The ICE is hopeless, I can't even change the folders or shut on/off shuffle without going through the menus. The Blue&Me software does not even have an option to change folder!!
5) The steering control buttons are not of good quality I feel.
6) Lot of gear changes are required in city. 1st gear is like non-existent.

Otherwise the styling is good and the power is just awesome. It's better than most cars we have had (The Fiat Uno was also as good if I remember). I have overtaken many a bigger Sedan on the highway with ease.

I test drove the Verna and compared to the Punto find it to be much better. It has all the goodies too, of course at a higher price. However I found the short drive comfortable, good power too, even in 1st gear. Yes the steering feels a bit too "free" but otherwise I found no problems.

The Rapid feels solid but missing on features for a similar price. Power seemed good too, maybe not as much as Verna. The rear floor hump is too much I feel.

Lesser you spend on your purchase of a badly maintained used car, the lesser you stand to lose and more money you have to service it. I will suggest you look for a better maintained Baleno and spend even upto 2 lakhs on it. That would give you peace of mind.

Well, should you actually be listing so many negatives of a car you're trying to sell??

Maybe you are right but people seem to be a fan of the Punto. Maybe some may not agree to the points I have put forth. On teh positive side, apart from the stunning looks, the car has real power which is exciting. I think people are already aware of the shortcomings anyway.

Must be true. I've never driven the Punto, but have been keenly following some spirited ownership threads here. I'm sure you'll find a genuine buyer. Do let its all know how the deal went!

Fellow BHPians,

I had posted a reply on the same thread around 2 months back to ask for the price i can expect for selling my Red Swift VDI 2008 model in good condition with Sony Audio system, 4 JBL speakers with 2 tweeters & newly add shoes from Michelin. The answer i got was about 4 Lakhs, now that 2 months has passed since i got this quote & my swift has done 64000 Kms thats about 4K more than it was earlier.

What do you guys think is the best price i can get now? I got a quote of 3.5 lakh from the car dealer i know.

I am not sure about New delhi, but here in Bangalore 2008 Swift diesel is easily over 4.5Lakh, some cases good condition cars are even selling at 5 lakh. Quote price is totaly different do not bother about that, i'm talking about the selling price.

A similar car in chennai will sell for around 4.25 Lakhs. Considering your in delhi I think you will between 3.75 and 4 lakhs. There's a lot of demand for diesel cars and it shouldn't be too hard finding a buyer for your swift. The recent petrol price hike will probably increase the demand for diesel cars even more.
