As a point of reference:
- 2010 Linea Emotion MJD
- 1st owner
- Maroon
- 41K Kms

Owner quoted 4.5 and eventually got 4.15 for it.

Many others of similar specifications (mileage upto 60K kms) were also seen in the price band of 4.2-4.7. I know because I was in the market till July.

Petrol Lineas go for 3.5-3.7 barely.

shashank, You would lose around 15% quite easily, if you sell it to a dealer in exchange for another car (like we were discussing on the what car thread ). European cars aren't known for resale value, so I doubt you would even get 8L on it. Be prepared for some heart attacks, but I wouldn't be surprised to see quotes of 7L or so. From what I have seen at a friend's used car showroom, there is no fixed slab for depreciation. It depends on the brand demand, age of the vehicle, and bargaining power of seller/buyer.

Your best bet would be to avoid dealers and go for direct sale via team-bhp ads or some other classifieds where the dealer/broker's commission can be avoided.

You're right. I called a *reputed* second hand dealer and he quoted 7l at the most! That's straight 15% loss and i'll have to invest another 1.5 lakh to buy a new one. I guess i'll stick around with my Polo for until thw warranty expires and then upgrade

i agree to that. i spent two months (june/july) looking for a used Linea/Punto90 and saw numerous linea mjd being sold in price range of 5.0-5.5 lac in mumbai. yesterday i came across someone (while looking for a used car for my sister) trying to sell his 10 months old punto (diesel) with asking price of 3.9 lac and the car is still unsold (been 1.5 months since he posted the AD).

2006 Ford Fiesta Exi
1.4 petrol
Single Owner
54k on the odo
Asking price : 3.25lac

The car appears well maintained. Have to drive it. Is the Fiesta a scary car to fix as a Ford Ikon? Are parts reasonably priced for the Fiesta?

What should I pay?

that car is in Punjab (Amritsar registered), that guy has been trying to sell it for almost 1.5 month now and I got a feeling that he'd give it away for around 3.5-3.6 easily. if you are interested, i'll PM you the details.

In your city 1.4-1.6 lacs should be a decent value for the car.

Assuming this is not the Durasport model, 2.1 - 2.5 lacs is what you should pay for it.
3.25 looks off the hook to me.

Yes, the maintenance will be a little more expensive than its immediate competition.

Nothing more than 2.5 lacs sandeep. Reasons :

1. Petrol Fiestas don't go for much from what I've seen. Petrol Fords don't boast of good resale value. Perhaps the only ford with good resale is the Fiesta 1.4 Duratorq diesel.
2. Petrol costs today

No clue about Ford Fiesta's maintenance costs, but I've heard that Fiesta is a relatively better car to maintain than the previous gen ikons.

P.S - will this be giving the Jet some company in the garage?

Dear infotech 58,

Thank you for your reply.
If It was Mumbai/Pune would have just grabbed this MJD.
Otherwise as well its a decent offer like 50% off.

This may be my 25 post so will be eligible for PM, lets see.

Thanks for everything.

Sandeep, You shouldnt pay anything more than 2.25 for this. 1.4 engines were sold IIRC only during the 05-06, and they dont command a good resale.

The parts of Fiesta Petrols are very reasonably priced, and Its a big myth that Fiesta maintenance is expensive, they are very reasonable and very much easier on the pocket.
I know because, i have been driving one (09 1.6 SXI) for the past 2 years.
