Thats a good deal. The best i have seen is a 2004 corolla with 40K sell for 2.5 lacs. a 2009 at 50K is really lucrative.

Another interesting thing that has come up while closely looking at this car, it appears that it was last serviced at a Maruti A.S.S during Sep/2011 when Odo was at 5900. After that, there is no service done so far on the car at any Maruti A.S.S. Current odo reading is 30,000. The owner says he has serviced at some service stations during some of his trips. Doesn't sound convincing. The dealer has not looked at this while buying the car and has no clue on this and is unable to get any service records.

Is it worth taking a risk of buying this car without proper service records?

Regards
Rex
Dropped this car since neither the dealer nor the previous owner was convincing in their reasoning for having no service records for last 24,000 kms.

Thanks for all the inputs!

My search for an Alto K10 Vxi continues :-)

Regards
Rex

Hello Rex,
Do ask as to why the car had 2 owners in just over a year. Since it's a 2nd owner car,it should be worth around 2.8L-3.1L

IMHO you should start negotiations with 2.40 and go upto 2.90 lakhs maximum.

The factors to bring down the price would be scratches,2nd owner and petrol; in that order.

Isn't that steep?
The new K10 Vxi costs 3.7 lacs OTR here and has a discount of approximately 20k going on it. That makes it 3.5. Why not buy a new car if one needs to shell out almost as much for a used one that has passed two hands already?
But I've always thought the resale values Altos and Swift diesels command are insane. I guess like many other things in India, there's no logical reason for this too.

This also applies to Wagon R and Santro, may be due to better service and mileage in small car segment which are mostly used by middle class families.

Hello Rex,

Why buy a Car that is already sold once. That means you will be third owner & when you sell the Car, this will fetch you a really low price.

In my opinion, think twice before buying a Car that is already changed hands twice in 1.4 years.

As far as price is concerned, others have already suggested. Also if you want to keep the car for long time, why now get buy a New Car. There are good discounts available on Petrol Cars now-a-days.

Thanks,

How much can a first owner, immaculate Palio 1.6 petrol fetch in Bangalore? The car in question has less than 20000k km on the odo since it was used only for short commutes.

Hello Crackedhead, you haven't mentioned the model year of the Palio. In any way the Palio is too outdated to command a good price. I say 1.5L,max 2L. Heck you can get 2009 petrol Punto's for about 3L.

Oops! Its a 2007 1.6 stile. A tyre and battery change is the only immediate expenditure.

Thanks

A tyre costs about 4000-4500/-. So a set of 5 tires will set you back around 20-23K's. A battery costs around 4000/-. So you are looking at an immediate expenditure of 25-30K's. Think & then decide

Frankly, for a car like this, it is between you and the palio owner to decide the right price.

And 20000 kms? Is there a possibility of meter tampering here?

I would have paid 1 - 1.5 lac at max for this car here in Delhi. Not too sure about bangalore though.
