I finally have bought a 2009 Civic V-AT, single-owner , 47K on odo in Chennai for 6.5 L, thru' a dealer (but with vehicle inspected at owner's premises).

Sold off our Jan 2006 Alto LXi, 90K on odo, to the same dealer for 1.1L.

Any comments on the prices? Are they in-line with Chennai used-car market prices ?

Thanks!

Congrats!

That's quite a deal for a 2009 Civic. The car has shed more than 50% of its value in just 3 years.

Guess the vehicle is in good shape with clean records + good tires and battery. How about some pics?

Hello Narayan,

I understand the delimma but hope you know that used Diesel hatchbacks are in huge demand currently & that is why sellers are quoting unreasonably high prices, which are not worth paying to save couple of thousand rupees in fuel costs.

See this is a matter of personal choice - are you willing to pay more than Rs. 4 for a diesel Car that is almost 2.5 years old or go for a new Diesel CNG hatchback. I would personally go for a new CNG hatchback (like WagonR Green for approx Rs. 5 lacs) whose per KM running cost will be cheaper than Diesel car & also a new car will give you peace of mind for next couple of years.

Thanks,

problem is i need the boot space and Chennai doesnt have a CNG network. Even the LPG network is terrible. Hence the wait continues. incidentally i saw an ad for a 2011 Dzire Vdi done just 25k being offered for 3.5lakhs. Something really suspicious.

for my budget, I am now looking through Vistas and Palio SDx models.

what is your opinion about the below

2008 Palio multijet top end model - new tyres - done 45k - quoting 3.25lakhs - i am seeing it languishing in the classifieds ( not T-BHP ) for quite some time. At what price would this be a good buy ? ( after factoring the risks of buying a phased out Fiat ? )

Yes indeed, and welcome to the club!
Can you post some more details, color, etc. Also, did you factor in the 50k service? Also is it a post facelift version?

Guys i have two options.
  • OCt 2010 VW Passat 1.8 Tsi done 33K (Single owner) - Lonavala registered
  • May 2010 VW Passat 1.8 Tsi done 19K (Two owner) - Mumbai registered
Request you all to share the indicative pricing for both cars so that i can negotiate accordingly. I need to get the car Mumbai registered.


Cheers

Looks absolutely stunning! Glad that you got a great color too! It looks very elegant on the Civic.

How difficult/easy is it to find such cars in the present scenario? It would be great if you could share the pre negotiation price offered at the first instance. Does the dealer provide some kinda warranty on the car?

What i had observed with Pre-worshipped Civic's;
It is one car that is very difficult to sell and equally difficult to buy in this market.
Most of the first owners will be high profile users who know very little of the car specific used market, so they calculate the depreciations normally and will quote and stick to a very high rate. Often they will be hard to negotiate also.
In this period, most of the genuine direct buyers would have left, leaving the owner frustrated and at the mercy of the dealers, who will then make merry.

To hunt for Civic, its better to be patient and keep trying out, you WILL get yours

Hello Punit,
As far as possible,try to go for a single owner(Lonavala) car & not the two owner car(Mumbai). Do check for odo tampering on the Mumbai car.
As for the price anything around 11L seems fair.
Gurus please comment.
Regards,
Varun

Hello Narayan,

Apologies, I forgot that CNG is not available in Chennai currently.

Anyways, regarding the 2008 Palio that you are referring the reasonable price can be considered around Rs. 2.5 lacs, but taking into account the premium that used Diesel hatchbacks currently command, you can pay maximum Rs. 2.8 / Rs. 2.9 lacs for the Car.

Thanks,

Guys, need your help with the following.

I just checked out two Swifts at Carnation here in Bangalore.

Swift VXi 2007 - 44,000KM on the odo. Price quoted 3.35L. This car doesn't have a music system and but the folks at Carnation are ready to put in a JVC/Panasonic HU and two speakers at front.

Swift Vxi 2008 - 53000KM on the Odo. This one has a music system with Panasonic HU, two JBL speakers on the parcel tray and I assume two at the front. The price quoted is 3.40L.

The condition for both the cars was similar (both enternal and internal) with no dents on the body.

Carnation provides 1Yr warranty on engine and gearbox along with two free services.

Are these fair prices? Which amongst the two is a better deal? Is Carnation a trustworthy used car dealer?

I have spent about 75000/- for accessories when I bought the car. The car is registered in Bangalore (KA-05) and was delivered on 21st Dec, 2011. Can experts here kindly help me in coming up with a quote?
Hi Coolindian,
