No showing off bhai, it was all thanks to the knowledge i gathered on tbhp that helped me clinch this and help a friend. Just wanted to re confirm

We actually paid 1.38. 1.5 includes approx costs for insurance,transfer and octroi.

Will also help fellow bhpians to get idea of prices in Bombay. saw another good baleno,getz and zen during search ( through carwale and olx) with individuals.

Hello Vikram,

That is a very decent deal. Rs. 1.5 lacs (all inclusive) for a well maintained 2005 Baleno is very good price.

Only thing to note is the mileage will be on lesser side, but even if your friend decides to install a CNG Kit, the total cost of the car (with CNG kit) will not be more than Rs. 2 lacs.

Thanks,

I would personally look at the other car with 37k on the odo. Just have a thorough check over the weekend + VAS scan. Around 9L is a fair ask for the car you have described. I know what you mean when you say 'comparing fast food with fine dining'. A Superb is a truly great car from Skoda. I would look at it this way - if you wre to buy a new Laura you anyway would shell out close to 13L. At around 9L for the Superb you save yourself a pretty packet and get a better sedan.
I appreciate the feedback. I'm going back to have a look this weekend, will see if I can get my mechanic friend to tag along as well. If things seem fine there, I'll give him a token pending feedback from Skoda. I'll fix up an appointment with Skoda, have them describe everything about the car, from the paint jobs (if any), to the authenticity of the windshield & tail light, followed by the condition of the suspensions and DSG and even make 'em evaluate any parts that may have been repaired.

I'll have to be quite a bit thorough with the evaluation, but hopefully it'll be worth it! =D

Any recommendations for any good (and reliable) "used-car" website? Am in the lookout for a pre-owned Audi Q5/ Q7 or a Land Rover Freelander2 in somewhere around Chennai/ Coimbatore/ Kochi/ Bangalore. Would be grateful for any suggestion.

Thanks in advance.

How much can I expect for a 2008 swift vxi which has run 51000 kms and has leathers seats worth 25k and system worth 20k?The car is silver in colour and by looking at the treading on the tires seems like it has another 10k kms left on it.

You can expect between 3.30 to 3.50L as your car has clocked 50k kms as petrol cars are taking a beating in the name of high petrol prices.

5.5 lakhs would be decent, Fiat's re-sale value is a bit low so that would be fine. Try to bargain as much as possible, because the owner is leaving country you could make him give you a great deal!

That's being too optimistic I guess. If in bangalore around 3 L . If it was mumbai somewhere around 2.5L .sadly these days used car market for petrol cars has taken a very bad hit.

Hey friends, need your help with thus car I saw today.
FoxTrot Azure, 2010 Mar, Linea MJD emo pack, single owner, run 47000kms.
The car is at Kharghar, owned by decent family and driven from there to Bandra Kurla Complex, hence the odo reading.Asking price is 6lacs.

I inspected the car and the engine, suspension, clutch don't seen to have any issue. Service history is partial.

Issues I found was with the hard steering, crack on the rear bumper left bottom corner and the right rear door is repainted because of a dent from a stone that flew from under the truck tyre and a few scratches on the rear left door.
Now the question I have is what is a good price, they are not desperate neither in a hurry, so not a lot of room for negotiation. And knowing the build quality of the modern Fiats and having owned a Punto in the past, I have doubts on a rogue projectile causing damage. I was not shown the bills for its repairs. There was a No Claims Bonus in the latest insurance though.

What do you guys think? Shud I ask for more evidence? Does it look like a decent buy for 5.75-6lacs?

I would say ask for evidence and hard steering sounds a bit fishy, maybe the car needs servicing and stuff. Try to negotiate too because in just 2-2.5 years the car had clocked around 47k which is pretty high. Anything more than 5-5.25 doesn't make sense.

The car has been serviced in August and all Fluids were changed including the power-steering oil.

And I sort-off agree on the odo reading, but from Kharghar to BKC is a daily drive of about 70kms (35kms each side) and if driven for 22 working days a month the average usage comes to about 18500kms a year. So the kms seem in sync with the usage, what say?
