If you need a car to travel in Delhi, then bring your car to Delhi. As having a car is quite a need in Delhi. Also, outside state cars are allowed to travel in Delhi without any issues.

Default Re: An upside to the petrol price hike : Used car residuals CRASH

Anybody can comment on the used car price corrections in bangalore?

I would be interested to swap out my 2011 Santro with a 3 yr old Alto/WagonR.
It would be 100% driver driven and daily commute is less than 20 kms. So petrol is just fine.

Would I get an 2008/2009 Alto Lxi for under 1.5L? Would blindly take it no matter what price I give my Santro away. 2008/2009 i10 Magna for 2L would be tempting but I have decided against a Hyundai again..

Is it a 2001 Santro or 2011?

Some car dealers also offer exchange bonus if you sell your car on your own. Desperate times are here for them!

I have been trying to sell it directly . But the offers are very few and the prices too low .I may try Team-BHP Classifieds but am not very optimistic . Otherwise will just keep it as a second car . Except for its gas guzzling , Indica is a breeze to drive ( mine is a 1.4 ) and can easily seat 6 .

Thanks for that piece for advice! Lots of people have told me the same thing. But i've heard that there are quite a few 320d s available between 17-19 lakhs. Problem is i can't even think of buying one without disposing of my civic first. And given that spiralling petrol prices have already brought petrol car prices crashing down, I want to try and get rid of my Civic asap before it loses any more value. I was hoping to manage atleast 7 because the car is in mint condition but looks like i might have to go with the 6.5 offer in Hyderabad or bring it here and try my luck

In delhi a dealer will not give you anything more than 5 for it and if your lucky you might find a individuval buyer who may end up giving you 6 but you will have to search hard to get a good deal imo its best if you sold it in hyderabad for 6.5, you will definately not get that figure in delhi

Bring the vehicle in Delhi only if you want to retain/drive it for some more time.

If you sell a Non-DL car in Delhi/NCR be prepared for extremely poor resale value!

So if you want to sell it then do it in your state only.

Contrary to what many believe,Indica xeta is really a nice family car.
Good low end torque for city riding and also very good mileage of 13-14kmpl in city conditons with AC.
Not sure why it become a market dud.
Sorry if its
Was this quote of 1.3L befor or after the hike ?
Was your xeta a 1.2 or 1.4 ?
You are right about the Xeta being a nice car . Mine was running on some really rough roads and no complaints whatsoever from the car . Loaded it up with 10 people all grown people . Still pulled cleanly on acceleration

+1 to this. 2.4 is ridiculous for a 10-year old car, to be honest. It should be about 1.25 or so, especially since the price correction for the current model sent the prices of used older ones spiralling downwards.
1.5 would be just about the maximum I'd pay IF the car had a full service history up to the current odometer reading from an authorized Honda service station and if your mechanic checked it out and told you there was no imminent work to be done on it.

For any other car, true.
But I did the rounds some time back.
2.4 for a single owner OHC is not unheard of.
One guy with a similar vintage car had full service history, everything repaired and replaced at honda, 3L!
When I checked a week later, sold!

Dont think this will cause any damage if the tank was emptied and cleaned immediately. You could have issues if the diesel made its way to the engine and the transmission. We had a similar instance on our Santro when an idiot at the petrol pump on the highway started filling diesel. Luckily the driver noticed it immediately. The tank was emptied, dried and refitted. We got it checked with the Hyundai Service Station in Bangalore who confirmed no damage as it was detected immediately.

Sold my 2006 Esteem LXi (CNG) run 1,44,000 kms for 1.27 lacs. It had newish tyres (Michelin, run 10k). It ran OK, but constant niggles were a pain.
