I completely agree. But that may just be going a bit out of my budget. I plan to spend not more than 4lacs. Preferably upto 3.5 lacs.

My boss has relocated back to India - Chennai after spending quite a lot of years abroad and is now looking out for a used AT car. He doesn't want to spend much on the car till he gets a bit accustomed to driving and so doesn't want to spend much on that - a 3L budget is what he is looking at.

1. I'm not that sure about AT ones. So, when buying one, is there anything specific that one should look out for?

2. At this price range (~3L) what are the options available in the market?

3. For Chennai-ites: Is there anyone who is planning to sell their AT-car? There is none in our classifieds section.

looking at your VERY LOW running on the car, I suggest you go for the WagonR. The car carries very high resale value, and is low on depreciation. It is also the cheapest of the lot in terms of maintenance.

The second best option to my mind is Spark. Its a cute little car that is ever reliable and more fun to drive than WagonR.

Do get these cars checked by a trusted mechanic before going for one as he will be able to tell you whether the car will give troubles in cold starts or not.

Do opt for the high-end version if you could find one.They are usually priced close to the basic version.

Don't worry about the GC,Its possible to upgrade the ground-clearance of the old punto

I'm always a bit skeptical of carwale valuation. Sometimes the range spreads over 30 to 35percent.

Vijay, is your boss looking for a sedan or hatchback? He can get a Santro AT of 2005-06 make for about 2.2L to 2.6L or Wagon R at about 1.9L to 2.3L.
In sedans, he can check out the City of 2001-02 for about 2L or City of 2003-04 for 3L to 3.2L . Toyota Corolla AT (2004-05) might be avaliable for about 3.3L to 3.8L

See if the AT gear oil change has been carried out at regular intervals
Hope this helps,
Varun

as this is a 2010 model, I think you should be happy if you get 18 to 20 lacs - petrol bimmers are extremely difficult to sell in used car market...Mahindra First Choice give good value for used petrol BMWs, so I suggest get it valued from them and that would be the best price you will get from a dealer...even if you dont sell it to them you will have an idea about the value of the car, and they dont charge for it

Carwale is still decent, i feel cartrade's valuation ranges from 30-40% and usually on the higher side.

Guys,

I checked out a Swift, 2007 Vxi model at a Maruti True Value outlet. They are quoting 3.75L for it. It has done 50K. Is it a fair price?

Also, there are a couple of small dents on and lot of scratches on the vehicle. The sales guy said they'll remove that all before delivery. Is this possible?
