I m damn sure its a good deal to buy a POLO 1.6 at 5.6 lacs and less which is about 1 year old.

Hope you told all those people that it is a 1.6 and not a regular one

Thanks Prashant. Am still ruminating over this deal...not convinced yet and am not sure why. Read a few posts back that a Polo 1.6 got sold for 4L in Hyderabad!

4 lacs is a steal

why dont you keep this on stand-by and hunt for another 1.6 polo and compare the price. But dont wait for too long or you may regret like me for having let go of a car i really want

@Red Liner. Having driven a Polo 1.6, I would like to comment the below
- Its nowhere an enthusiast drive. Its simply not entertaining.
- It has power but the its rough. It cannot even come close to a Jap / Korean in refinement.
- Polo 1.6 were always sold for a 50k+ discount.
- Petrols have lost their value big time.
- I would rate the normal (non-S) Fiesta a better choice than the 1.6 Polo.
- Used Fiestas are available for a song.

As mentioned, few posts back
- 1.6 Polo sold for 4.xx in Hyderabad
- 1.6 Fiesta SXI 2009 bought for 3.00 in Bangalore

For a 5-6 lakh budget in Bangalore, you could look at
- 2009-2010 Cedias
- 2010-2011 Fiestas
- 2007-2008 Civics

I somehow feel the Polo is very over-priced. Apart from good build, looks, interiors quality (not looks), there is nothing much going for it. It just does not have the right engines to do justice.

Hi Friends,

How much can I expect for a well maintained Tata Indica v2 DLS (non turbo), October 2008 model, some more details:
  • 64000 KM's run
  • Neo alloy wheels (set of 4)
  • Mileage between 15-18 with A/C always on
  • Complete service history available
  • Michelin tube less tyres (can do another 10K KM's easily)
Overall its in very good condition, except a few scratches on front and rear bumpers.



Thanks,
Srinivas.R

That is another story about spending x amount on a used car. 6L would get you a new car from a segment below.
If you ask me about the Jazz, it is worth it. Based on condition etc. and possible expenses, its more of a negotiating task.
5.5 sounds ok, but maybe a middle of the road offer like 5.7 could do the trick?

I would not sell to a relative or friend. too many complications later, I speak from experience, I have learnt it the hard way.
Practically speaking, if the dealer is offering you 3.25, you should ask for 3.5 elsewhere, assuming he would make 25K on a sale.

some cars are worth jumping the gun for. that is totally subjective though, you will know it when it happens to you!
ps - I am not talking about the Polo offer, but just making a general statement

My brother-in-law who purchased New Hyundai Eon 6 months ago for 3.20L, recently exchanged it for a used Nissan Micra (diesel). The bad part of the story is he sold his Eon for 2.10 Lakhs Rs. and bought the Micra for 5.5 Lakhs. (5.5L - 2.10L) he had to pay additional 3.4L. I felt when I heard that he sold his 6 months old 5K ridden car for 2.10L and purchased 2011 Jan Micra from the auto dealer. (I hate purchasing cars from dealers.)

Awesome when that happens, but do ensure that you try and have a bit of practicality innvolved in the decision making. Some of these find a nasty way to bite us back. which I hope is not the case for you!

Inlaws should be outlawed. They never listen, do they?! but again, even I am someone's inlaw and I am sure they would think the same way about me!

anyhow, I guess this just reflects a poor decision on his part when buying the Eon. He tried to correct it, but lost money there. I hope he makes it up by saving a lot of money on diesel!! But for saving 20 bucks, he will have to spend 40 everytime

But, how the heck could one accept a depreciation of 1.1L for a 5 months old untouched car? Adding to that he is a Financial advisor in a Telecom company and duped by a 12th pass car dealer. The Micra he purchased had a rattling gear-shift and somehow when I inspected the car it appeared tobe a accidented car (the gaps were uneven). Although, I told him, but as you said I was outlawed.

A classic case of panic buying. Buying a diesel car just because a few people would've asked "why you bought a petrol car.now fuel prices will shoot through the roof " conveniently ignoring the premium one pays extra for a diesel over a petrol and the daily running usage. Its the only question people ask me in my office when they look at my car!

and this has to be a record for the resale value of Nissan. Dont think even in US Nissan commands such a resale value(5.5L where a new car is around 7L)

Thanks Dipen. Have skipped the deal. The Civic in your list is on top of my radar. If I wait a bit and save up more money + wait for the fuel hike, play on the civic discontinued story, then I should be able to get myself a nice deal. Add a suspension kit thereafter, and the car should do enough justice to keep me happy for a while (plus its clearly a segment above the Scorpio in every imaginable way). I dont mind waiting - the right car will find me if it has to

Does it make sense to keep PalioD for wife/parents knowing that we are not going to put considerable miles on it once I have the new car!! or better to find a new home rather keeping her parked most of the time (was thnking to keep the car considering the low resale value).
> In case if I decide to find her a new home, what can I expect? its in very good condition except FIP which I'm planning to get fixed (shoud cost around 20k!! or less!!). How much should I expect?

Thank you.

Keep the car if it has been responsible for some happy motoring and has given you a trouble free experience. As you said, you won't get much by selling it. Regardless of how well maintained it is.

Regards.

My old car, PalioD is not being used much my wife uses it sometimes for her 2 km commute a day to her school (very close to house) and sometimes she finds scotty o be quicker than the car - recently I used it for a short highway run and it was performing just fine, as usual.
My car wash guy was asking me if I want to sell the car, I said yes, if you find someone show it to him and he got a couple guys.
I told the FIP problem in the beginning itself and told him that that's the reason I'm coming to 1.75 from 2L. Apart from that, there are no issues, it has got 5 alloys, AutoCop XS (with auto roll down module), Pioneer player with USB facility, battery replaced just a month back and insurance renewed 1.5 months back since I was planning to keep the car.
We finalized it at 1.7 (verbally) and later while returning the key he said that he will come back to me in another couple of days time after he consults his numerologist.

Do you think 1.7L is a good price for my PalioD? (I still have lots of emotions attached but my wife says we may not get this same price after sometime)
Please help me decide.
Thank you.

I think it's a fairly reasonable price. A friend who used to own a 2005 Palio D recently sold his car which had 80,000 km on the odo, for 1.3 lacs after it developed a fuel injector problem that the A.S.S. was quoting a crazy sum to replace. He was facing the same problem as you, owning three other cars, but not wanting to part with this one.
