Is the price okay if car does not have ABS. Would the braking be very bad without ABS?
Yes. The price is OK. I am currently looking for Swift VDi at used Car Dealers in Mumbai & all the Cars available have done atleas 50,000 kms & the Price quoted is Rs. 4 lacs +.

As far as ABS is concerned is it not much required in Mumbai & nearby highways.

Thanks,

If you have the option always go for a car with ABS. The price is quite high in my opinion. I had sold my 2008 VDi in 2010 for 4.2lakhs which had run 40k kms. But with the recent increase in prices of cars (the new Swift VDi now retails for 7.16lakhs in Mumbai) and the spurt in demand for diesel cars nowadays this is on par with what prices are being quoted. Try and haggle down to 3.75lakhs.

I agree about ABS, but as motorworks said it's difficult to find used Vdi with ABS. Also, as Jignesh said, most Vdi's are over 4 lacs with 50k km. But let me have a look at the car first and then decide.

Any points to keep in mind when checking old vehicle?

Edit: The car is not Mumbai registered. How do i do this and what would it cost?

For tips on buying a Used Car, there is a Thread here on T-BHP on Buying a Used Car.

If the Car is not Mumbai Registered, then you will have to pay Octroi which will be additional cost of approx Rs. 10,000 / 12,000 while transferring the Vehicle. The current owner will be knowing this fact & will be ready negotiate the Car Price till some extent.

Guys,

My BIL is pondering letting of his beloved 1.5 year old Ford Fiesta 'Limited Edition' 1.6; the car is Jan 2011 registered.

Any ball park figure of what he may expect?

Take carwale, subtract a lac.
I am huge fan, and follower, and owner, but fords as usual took the biggest hit in the 2nd hand market due to the fuel hike.

This info i got from my used car dealer, who calls me up everytime he has a petrol fiesta.
I dont know why!!
As if I am putting a collection together.

Abhi, few more details like the kms on ODO, car location, Insurance validity, color, major accessories added and actual variant & model would be required to arrive at a "reasonable" quote.

And I must agree with Mayankk - in general Petrol car resale has taken a big hit in recent times considering variouis reasons. Even a known Ford SA told me that good 2010 / 2011 Petrol Fiestas are available for resale ~ 5 Lacs in Bangalore.

OK!

Mileage: 15k only.
Location: Gurgaon/Delhi
Colour: Grey
Variant: 'Limited Edition' (they has so many of these ) Middle variant.

BTW, I know that he will take big hit in the resale market due to petrol prices. I think he is prepared for that as long as he can clear off his loan with the money generated.

He is also aware that that it may not be the best time to sell a petrol car but he is seriously concerned about his running costs. Unfortunately, the number of Fiestas converted to CNG are so few that it doesn't instill much confidence. A couple of CNG installers out rightly rejected the idea of putting a CNG kit (sequential included) in a Fiesta.

So, we are researching the option of selling it off and buying a new diesel sedan.

Around 5.25-5.5L should be a good price. Accesories (audio, HIDs) really do not count for much in the used car market. New tyres and battery most certainly do.

5.25-5.5L Isnt that a bit too much for a 4.5 year old previous generation Verna with 60K on odo. Diesel car ok but I feel the is should somewhere in the 4.5L -5L band.
