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

Rs. 3.35 lacs for 2007 Swift Vxi is on higher side.

Rs. 3.4 lacs for 2008 Swift Vxi is OK considering the fact that you get one year warranty from Carnation. Also ensure that tyres are replaced at 40,000 kms. But personally, I feel 53,000 kms on ODO is on higher side. If possible try to get used cars with less 40,000 kms on ODO.

Regarding Carnation, there are mixed responses from people I know. If the price difference is more than 8% then I would prefer trusted local used Car Dealer.

Is Swift your only choice? I mean you can get 2010 WagonR for Rs. 3 lacs & 2010 Polo for approx Rs. 3.5 lacs.

Hello Narayan,

Rs. 3.5 lacs for 2009 Vista aura Quadrajet is good. Nothing particular to take care, just take note of rattles & strange sounds during test drive & most important ensure that air pressure in Tyres is accurate.

Thanks,

In my opinion Carwale valuations do some justice, however out in the open now, used car price don’t follow any logic, people and even Manufacturers of cars like Maruti True value court anything that comes to mind and especially after the price difference between petrol and diesel gone the way it is in the last year, petrol cars are doomed.

Not more than 4.5lacs. It's a petrol and come 2013, it will be seen as 3 yr old vehicle. Doesn't matter when it was registered.

Hello Sanjay,

Rs. 5.2 is way too high for 2010 SX4 Zxi. It is a petrol hungry car & it's resale value has really gone down in last one year.

If you really like the car, try to negotiate hard to bring the proce below Rs. 4.5 lacs. I will suggest to pay in the range of Rs. 4 to Rs. 4.4 lacs for this Car. Anything more will not be worth paying for.

Thanks,

Hello,

Rs. 3.5 lacs will be good for 2009 Vista QDJ which has done 45000 kms. Considereing the fact that the tyres are due for change very soon.

Thanks,

Anyways, regarding the 2008 Polio 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,
I decided to skip the Palio because no matter how good a car it may be and how cheap I get it , if the 1st owner is struggling so much to sell it I can imagine my position when I need to sell it.

"Extras": Good tyres (Yoko a-drives); leather seats.

Does this look OK?

Thanks

No. Not worth.

Why not a 2009 City AT. This shouldn't be over 5.5 in the used market.

Heck - 2008 Civic AT are available in bulk between 5.00 to 5.50 and all in mint condition.
Thank you for the reply, Dipen. I do think it is pretty high price, but the issue is I am unable to find anything in this price range that has so many bells and whistles in it. For instance, parking sensors with rear camera display. I have tried negotiating with the dealer but he won't budge from 5.2L (including transfer and registration). Problem is when I think of resale value of the car down the line, I know it will depreciate like anything. I'd buy it in the bracket of 4.3-4.4L, but right now I think the dealer is overcharging.
Sigh, the heart wants the car, the pocket is signalling otherwise.
Any response to resolve this dilemma are highly welcome.

If your mind is made up on the i20, why not look for other variants which might be cheaper and add some of these features after market ? Just check whether this works out cheaper.

A relative sold his Silver SX4 Zxi 2008 June model clocked 46500kms for 2.60L in chennai with great difficulty. Insurance was renewed upto June 2013 but the tyres required a replacement.

A gem of an engine but had a little painting work carried out on the car at a local garage which made it look a little bad. Otherwise the car had a complete service history.

See if this is of any help to you guys!

Bells and whistles apart, both City and Civic are much better deals in that price range. You can always add those parking sensors and reverse camera (can easily manage in an i20 without them too) aftermarket, but no minor modifications can make an i20 AT drive like a City/Civic AT.

4nd3r50n,
Do you feel the bells and whistles are worth a 1L premium?
If you like the car so much, negotiate hard and do not budge from your offer.
With the current petrol car prices, there is a high chance dealer will come back to you. If he doesn't just keep looking. Keep in mind that while buying a used car, even in mint condition, you will always end up spending some money even if it is just to personalize the car. Selling petrol vehicles is not easy in this market - for individuals as well as dealers. I suggest look around!!
