Hello Narayan,
Between Vista & Palio, shut your eyes and go for Vista. Simply because Vista is a newer design & more importantly spares will be easier to source. Palio on the other hand,though tough,spares will be a headache. So Vista gets my vote.
But if you need absolute peace of mind, go for a Japanese. I hope I've not confused you more

Varun

Hello narayan,

Between Palio & Vista you should definitely prefer Vista. Vista has 1.3 Fiat engine the same which is used in Swift & Palio. There is known history of Palio maintenance being costly & also the resale value is very less.

By the way, in Mumbai we are getting 2008 Swift (Diesel) Vdi around Rs. 4 lacs. I believe almost same will be the used car prices in Chennai.

Thanks,

For this particular car 4.5 should be a good deal, in case the car is really well maintained one can add about 20-25k for the condition of the vehicle
Thanks for sharing your experience buddy.

I saw the car and plan to skip it altogether. There were issues with some noise from suspension and some rusting too.


Anyway, how does this look guys?

Will see the car tomorrow, but the guy is ready to deal around 6-6.2 lacs... Is this a good price.

Hello Zenster,

The Car looks really well maintained. Also presense of original parking cover shows the owner has taken good care of the car.

If you are getting the Car around Rs. 6 lacs it will be a good deal. Just ensure that when you test drive the Car, the air pressure in tyres is at recommended levels.

Thanks,

Thanks Jignesh.

Can you please tell me what is a "original parking cover ", haven't been close Octavia's so not sure what you mean.

Also air pressure check is required to check uneven tyre wear or anything else?

Sorry if the questions sound naive

Hello Zenster,

Firstly regarding correct Air Pressure in tyres, recently a fellow T-BHpian shared his experience while buying a used Maruti Esteem. When he test drove the Car the suspensions seemed all fine. But couple of weeks after buying the Car he had to spend a large amount on major suspension work in the Car & this was smartly hidden by used car dealer by keeping the air pressure in tyres 5 - 7 points lower than recommended air pressure.

Regarding the parking cover, I saw the photographs of the Car in the link you posted above & in the boot the parking cover is still present in good state. Now typically we put parking cover during initial few months of buying the Car. Then slowly the cover finds its place in store room & one fine day it is not traceable. But in this Car even after three years it is still present in the boot, which made me assume that owner has taken good care of the car.

Thanks,

How much would my 2012 Punto 90HP fetch? (In case i need to sell it).

Its run 17k kms in 6 months. Showroom condition except for one tiny scratch on the bumper. Upgraded music system for an additional 50k. OTR Price in Chennai at the time was 7.93L. Now ~8.5L i suppose.

I'm planning sell my 2003 ohc vtec and search a used civic. Ohc vtec has done 65k and tyres have been changed 20k kms back. Has music system worth 25k, has reverse parking sensor, central locking , k&n cai, irridium plugs and running on synthetic oil. What is the price I can expect for it. I'm not in hurry hence won't like to sell to dealers, will like to find a buyer who can value and maintain vtec. Car is Mumbai registered with VIP/fancy number.

Fiat and TATA carry poor resale value. 5lacs is a good price since she is just 6 months old. Try disposing by Dec, else people add one more year to it.

If your Xeta is running well why do you need to change? However if you do intend to buy a sedan 2008 SX4 sounds a good deal at 4 lakhs. How much has the car done?

Your daily running & once a month trip doesn't warrant a diesel. If fuel economy is your priority can consider CNGing the SX4.

Hello Krishnavamshi,

Firstly, your Indica Xeta will fetch very low resale value. Now your running is less than 1000 kms per month & if your Xeta is running fine then why upgrade to a Petrol Sedan (SX4 Zxi) which will give mileage in single figures (less than 10) in city.

Also going for a Rs. 8 lacs Diesel does not make sense because the monetary outflow on account of interest cost & depreciation cost does not justify for usage of less than 1000 kms per month.

Still if you are you are looking for a upgrade from Indica to sedan then I will suggest you go for your office SX4 which you know is well maintianed & then install CNG Kit in this Car. This will ensure that your per km running cost is less than Rs. 2 & also there is decent boot space left.

Thanks,
