Your daily running & once a month trip doesn't warrant a diesel. If fuel economy is your priority can consider CNGing the SX4.
SX4 has done 48k and is well maintained with all records of servicing available. And the reason i'm tempted to change the car was the test drive with SX4 .

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,
About the resale yes I did check out the market and resale value is really shocking given the fact that there are some santro's which go for 2.3+ and are not as smooth nor as roomy as my car. And coming to the mileage part my xeta also returns a very low avg of 11km in city. SX4 top end model at that price seemed a great deal.

Hello Krishnavamshi,

Yes resale value of Tata Cars in general is very low, no matter how good is the condition of the car.

Coming to your SX4, as you are sure of the maintenance records, you can go for it. It would be no point in spending Rs. 4 lacs extra (Rs. 8 lacs) for a Diesel Dzire. SX4 is no doubt a very well built Car & the boot size is very huge. Add to the fact that the said SX4 is Zxi (top end model).

Thanks,

Yeah, plus, they are quite friendly with alternative fuels, just in case he jinxes his low daily running and has to commute more all of a sudden.

Can you please let me know what resale value has been quoted in the market. I am currently owning 2008 Xeta with 35K on the Odo. I am also looking to sell it and go for a diesel hatch.

Thanks! This was a pretty clean car. Full service history and no accidents. A few scratches, a medium size dent and a repainted wheel arch was the only negative. It has insurance valid till June'13, new rear tyres, complete front and rear suspension overhaul from Skoda A** and a month old Exide battery. Timing belt was also changed along with tensioners a year ago. Even the brake pads and rotors were new. Drove perfectly. I took it to the expressway and did a couple of quick runs. Acceleration, power delivery, braking, cruise controls - everything was in fine shape. The guy had got the car valued by Mahindra and two more reputed used car dealers. Max valuation he received was for 2.1L. I handed over 2.25L and the deal was done in less than 2 minutes. The seller wanted to sell quickly and I wanted to buy quickly .

Thread will come up in a couple of weeks. Actually we will get the puja done during Navratras and I will 'own' and drive it from then on (It has been garaged since I bought it). But it will come up for sure. I will post a couple of pics on this thread soon though.

I am going from diesel to petrol here - given the current state of fuel prices some may call this change crazy.

Bangalore used car prices are a bit funny so one would expect significantly higher prices. Even here I feel that any dealer would have sold the car for around 2.75L. So - good piece of business in the end.

Need your advice,

Colleague selling Ford Fiesta Classic 1.4TDi CLXi, 13000 kms run, Dec 2011 model, color Diamond White, owner claims that body and car condition is excellent.

Owner has not quoted price but asked for a quote from prospective buyer

Have not yet seen the car.

1. Is Ford Fiesta a reliable car? Maintenance costs ??
2. What should be a fair price? Car is registered in Navi Mumbai
3. My monthly run is 1000 kms. Is diesel worth it?

I have booked a Honda Brio and am evaluating if I should switch to this.

Pls suggest

My BIL's Fabia (diesel, top-end model) was bought in Feb 2011, done nearly 44K, with reasonably new tires (~5K old), seat covers and parking sensors. The car was sold for Rs.5.5L. Did we get a good price?

Hello iCars,

Other than Petrol & Diesel comparision, Ford Fiesta is a full size Car & you will always have advantage of large boot, which you will always miss in small hatchback like Brio.

Also at monthly usage of 1000 kms you will feel the pinch if you are running Petrol Car. Now coming to your question if you are getting Dec 2011 Ford Fiesta Classic for around Rs. 5.5 to Rs. 5.75 lacs then I will suggest you to go for it.

Hello Speedy_Racer,
For 2009 Swift Vxi you can expect something around Rs. 3.5 lacs.

Hello StarrySky,

Yes. Rs. 5.5 lacs for a top-end diesel Fabia that has already done 44,000 kms in 1.5 years is indeed a good deal.

Thanks Jignesh,
We are thinking twice about the option of a used car since our experience with a Santro was not good (engine issue at 62K kms). Also, wanted to check with BHPians about reliability of Ford Fiesta?

How much will a max 3 yr old Tata Safari cost in New Delhi/NCR? Is it worth going for a used Tata Safari considering the Tata quality and after sales?

iCars
Your concern is genuine. But the Car in question is less than one year old & has just done 13000 kms. Also as the seller is your colleague so you will definitely know of maintenance & known problems in this Car.

Ford Fiesta are relatively cheaper to maintian & there are no reported issues with the car. Also when compared to Brio, there are couple of advantages, first being Petrol & Diesel & other being size of the Car (hatchback v/s sedan). There are couple of Ford Fiesta reivews available in T-BHP, you can refer to those.

Thanks,
