And like the others have advised, i too would recommend increasing your budget to 1.5-1.6 lakhs and going for a good condition used Alto. Its got a smoother engine, 5 speed gearbox and also power brakes. These things make a huge difference.
Thanks for replying, It seems you got a good deal with that Red 800. I will definitely try to get it under 1.2 L else will give it a pass.
I agree with you on the features of Alto but maintenance of Alto is quite heavy compared to 800 & i don't have requirement for powered features, just need a basic car with a working AC.
BTW I already drive a 2010 model Alto and don't want to go in for another one.

Purely because of the resale troubles and high loss incurred doing so. If you are sure you will keep this one for a long time and are not bothered about the resale, it is fine. Petrol Bimmers = Low Resale (very difficult to sell as well).

Sorry about that, don't worry, there is always a better one round the corner for a better price, keep a lookout.

75K on the Optra is good enough mileage, pay nothing more than 3.5L, more-so as the numbers from the past couple of months (Apr - 20 & May - 3) are indicative that GM might be pulling the curtains on the Optra sooner than later.

Do check on the following things -

1) Turbo Charger.
2) Fuel Pump.
3) AC.

The above three mentioned are the problematic areas on the Optra.

Mileage - For one, the Optra is not meant to be driven sedatly .

Expect - 12 In City driving conditions and 16 on the H-ways.

Happy Motoring !!

Hello Shirish,

Buying a 2.5 years used Alto for Rs. 2.5 does not make any sense. Even if True Value is giving 1 year warranty, still it does not makes sense.

Instead I would sugest you to go to local Used Car dealers & you may get a good deal there.

Thanks,

Mileage is very good if you can drive sedately My BIL has an optra and has been having problems with suspension tending to bottom out and A/C being ineffective. The compressor cuts out for no reason. His friend who has a Optra too is facing similar problem with the AC. Both cars are in the 60 - 70 K KM range.

Default Re: OHC Again

Hi All,

There is an July 2002 model 1.5 exi OHC for sale (KA reg), with the following
specifications :

kms Covered: About 73 k change
Variant: 1.5 Exi
Transmission: Manual
No. of Owners: 1
Road Tax: Individual
Insurance: Comp till 10/2012

No additional accessories, even the HONDA original stereo remains intact in car.It's a biege interior OHC. I have seen and driven the vehicle. Ride was not bad, suspension and drive shafts felt to be ok for me. While using A/C there was some slight noise coming.

Tyres (Bridgestone Potenza - Not the OEM S322 in OHC) have life left about say 20k km. Some minor scratches and light dent on the bonnet, but no hits or dents surprisingly from the left and right running boards.Still have to check the underbody hits and mainly get a good mechanic to do a thorough testing of the vehicle.

Clutch seems hard while engaged full. It was mostly lady driven and single handed as far as the information given.

The best offer is about 2.4 lakhs. Maybe slightly negotiable. What is the best price I should quote.


Thanks

Dear All,
Further to the advice you have given me, I'm planning to sell my Honda Civic ( Sept 2009, 27000km done, 2nd owner , Fully insured till Jan 2013 with service record) in Mumbai it self as i need to leave for Delhi at the end of this month. I was wondering how much i could expect for it. It was actually with my father for the past 2 months in Hyderabad and he got an offer of Rs. 6.5 lakhs for it. Will i get a much higher amount in Mumbai or do you think i should just go ahead and dispose of it in Hyderabad?

6.5 for a second owner civic is a good offer. i would suggest you to go for it.

recently, people have bought 2007 vintage civic in excellent conditions for as low as 4.5 lac. i am sure you'd get a lower offer than 6.5 in mumbai.
there are a couple of used car dealerships near my home and few days ago i saw a single owner civic (2008) with all service records being sold for 5.2 lac.

2.4 is just too much for a 10 year old OHC.
I am not sure about resale values down south.
but up north it wont fetch more than 1.5L

How much should I pay for an Oct 2010 Ford Figo Petrol Titanium variant?
Its done 10,000 kms and claims to return 13kmpl in Bangalore city (with occasional Aircon use).
Its on company lease now, so effectively I will be the third owner if I buy.
The owner had filled diesel in the car once, but it was rectified by the service station before any damage could happen. Could this have an potential issue later?
