Hey guys - just posting this Q again with an update. I drove this car yesterday - immaculately maintained, non accidented, original paint, and only minor bumper scratches. Idles and revvs like new, suspension is great - overall a new-like car. I think I'm sold on the idea, but the seller wants 4.7L.

Is this the right price? I still think the price of a Ford Petrol should be between 4 and 4.2 considering the current market. How much should I quote?

Thanks. A Maruti I guess is a more sensible option. I'm not really keen on a Palio, but that's one of the cars that you get at a reasnable price, with all options. Plus, it's slightly more comfortable than an 800 or an Alto, so was considering it. But I guess it'll be a pain to maintain. Thanks for the advice. I'll probably settle for a Maruti.

Asking price 9lakhs.

How much this is worth?
Company leased and then later transferred to owner cars. What are the possible issues/concerns here.

Regards
Rex

No issues with buying company cars later transferred to owners
Normally the company gives its employees the car as perks and after 3 or 4 yrs ,the employee is given a choice to buy the car at the written down value.

The car maybe maintained by the employee or the company as policies differ from company to company

Hi Guys!

I see a lot of Civic experts on this thread, and a lot of Civic price checks, particularly recently. Just want to do a quick price check on the following Gurgaon registered car:

2007 Honda Civic Automatic
~45,000 KM
Reasonably clean interiors, though not immaculate
Minor dent on a few fenders. Not an eyesore enough for me to bother fixing them.
Tires probably need replacement soon.

I intend to keep this car for 5-6 years.

Any pointers on what the price should be?

Also, any tips on buying used civics - ie, any specific parts etc need to be checked for this particular civic vintage?

Thanks!!

A deal around 4.5L should be fair for both the buyer and the seller. You are right about a good condition car having a value around 4.2L but the way you have described the car it fels that it deserves a premium of 20-30k.

This is most likely the S AT. If yes then around 4.5L is what you should pay considering that tyres will set you back by about 20k and the car is not really in 'excellent' condition. If it is the V AT then you can pay 25-30k extra.

+1 with CESC a price of 4~4.5 lacs should be an ideal price. Also the Civic has the problem of Low ground Clearance..especially in Gurgaon with all the building going on..its not too difficult to scrape the underbody. Check the car for any rusting due to this. ( I dented the Door sill of my '05 City in Gurgaon)

Also, if any of the experts here can help on this - just wanted to know how is the Palio 1.9D compared to the petrol 1.6? Does it have more niggles and problems or is still as rock solid as its petrol counterpart. Especially in terms of the engine.
There is a pretty exhaustive review of a 1.9D found here.

Better to avoid is the bottom line.

Not more than 4.5L.

Look for damage to engine mounts. Also check for rusting at bottom of the door panels. Also check if the AC gives out any abnormal noises.

Thank you all for the tips -- Much appreciated. Seems like 4-4.5L is the way to go. Also - I should have mentioned earlier, the insurance is expiring this month.

It doesnt say S or V. But the interiors are (beige) fabric. Even the RC says Honda Civic and doesnt mention S or V.

It's probably an S - Did Honda introduce the S / V fork around that time? Or was S / V always al option?

S/V was always an option. V has leather interior and turn signals on the side view mirrors

Please check whether the engine mount has been replaced or not. If this has not been done, and your mechanic can detect the change to be made, please negotiate based on this, the tires and the insurance. But even with all these, if you can get for 4-4.5, its a good deal.

Another point to note is, whether the 45k service is done or not. And whether the oil change is done at 35k or 40k. The transmission fluid also is supposed to change at 40k i guess, so check whether that is also done.

Since the car is about 12 years old, you should not pay more than 1.5-2 lacs for this

This shall be my 1st car. I am also thinking of Palio being spacious at rear seat for 3 passengers. I think I can get 2007 Palio (1.6) for 125 k? Probably Stile shall be better than old Palio. What can be parts availability for next 2 years since it is discontinued couple of years back. What about 2005-2006 Petra’s viability since one rarely sees it on road. Can Palio be realiable for regular run since I shall be using it regularly for few months and on weekends intermittently.
If I increase budget to 150 k can I get 2007 Getz, top version or Esteem Vxi?
Requirement is the seats, ride quality should be comfortable, the steering feedback etc should not be vague, should drive effortlessly at full load. Please advise fellow bhpians.
