nothing more than 3 lacs for a Baleno, all years included . Petrol price hike has taken its toll on the recent resale value here. 2004 Baleno @60k should go at around 2.4L or so. 2006 Balenos (VXi) I have seen going for 2.7-2.8L here. When SX4s are going at 4-5L, no way a Baleno can see a better resale price than this. From what I see at a friend's used car dealership, Baleno only fetches marginally higher than an Accent of similar age, although the initial price tag is marked higher in used car showrooms. Don't get dissuaded by that.

On a lighter note, if the seller argues, remind him that the model is discontinued, and guzzles fuel at 80 Rs. per litre.

The owner quoted 10.5. After taking the TD, we are very much impressed with the car and are ready to go for 9 and looks like the owner will oblige.

Is it an ok deal if we go ahead?

Wouldn't 6L be too low a price of a 2 year old car that costs 15L OTR. 6L would be an appropriate price for a 2008 Civic but for a 2010 top end I think 8.5-8.75L would be a good deal.

Having said that there are no hard and fast rules in the used car market. If you REALLY like something you can pay 5-7% over the fair value.

I agree with you here , IMO somewhere around 8 lakhs will be a fair amount for a 2 year old civic V AT.

Here in Delhi, a 2004-05-06 model baleno won't fetch more then 2 lakhs. I've seen 2005-06 baleno's going here for 1.5-1.6.

A 2004 model 60k run good condition baleno should go around 1.5 lakhs ( Max ), keeping the fact in mind, that bangalore prices are bit higher, as compared to Delhi.

I hope it helps


Cheers,
Sameer

What would be a good price?

Thanks
Sorry posting this again since I did not get any response the first time; will make it a little more direct this time so as to catch attention

What would be a good price for a used i20 petrol base model (Era)?

- Has run 17K
- Dark blue in color
- Single driver only city driven
- Stereo and seat covers of good quality
- Bought in Sept 2010
- No accidents; minor scratches; overall looks good as new

Thanks

3-3.5, i would say.
Why are you selling it?
If for another car, try some exchanges.

Thanks Mayankk!

Selling because the car is used by my wife and she is moving to the US for a longish period. Bought it for 5.2L; really bad time to sell I guess but cant help it. :(

Am posting an ad on Team-BHP classifieds - will update what price I finally get for it.

Cheers

A new Baleno in 2004 or 2005 which came fully loaded, used to cost about 7 lacs or so if I remember right. It was considered quite expensive back then.
Now that it is out of production you will be a bit pressed to find a well kept single owner car.
I don't think that a good, single person owned, well kept example of 2005 vintage, will leave you much change from Rs 3.5 lacs given the positively evil Bangalore used car pricing.
Have you trawled Carwale and Trovit for examples?
I just trawled Carwale and incidentally there seems to be a nice silvery gold 2006 VXi model with lovely alloys there for a good price of 2.75 lacs. I have a feeling that car is owned by a senior man from one of the big corporates and it lives I believe on Sarjapura Road somewhere. Check it out!
Thanks for the info, guys. Actually one of my friends had picked up one of the last few 2006 manufactured cars for somewhere around 5.4L with the amount of discounts that they offered at the time.
Ah, well, The search goes on.

D1 segment petrol car resale value has come down by almost 60%. Really who would buy a fuel guzzler like the civic for even 8 lakhs at a time when petrol price is going through the roof?

Not bad, so if this one comes to you at 2.75 thats about 50% off on the original price. And I am sure you can negotiate a bit more too since it is an out of production car. Do check it out on carwale it looks good to me.

How minty is it?
There is no ground figure for this car if its pristine and cared for, especially first owner.
And dont trust Carwale or any valuations that are done based on model, mileage, and vintage.

If you have kept it, like i said, minty (), you can get a good premium over the 1.9L as suggested by sameer.
You may have to wait for it, but itll go practically for what you want.


Personally, I'd say if its not too much of a hassle, hang on to it.


PS: you may receive some PMs from members here.
try the classifieds.
