Another one from me today-

T-jet+ 2011 manufactured and Jan 2012 Bangalore registered, 2600Kms driven, single owner, excellent condition. Owner quoting/day-dreaming for 9.25Lacs.

Checked in carwale used car valuation report shows 8.31Lacs at the very best.

What do you guys say ? what's a decent asking price from a buyer's perspective ?

Sorry for the long post but please do reply. Thanks.
Hyundai cars are no longer cheaper to maintain. The general servicing (paid servicing) charges of my 4 yr old i10 is more than 3500 Rs every 5000 Km.As far as my i10 is concerned, it gives me a FE of less than 13 in city traffic. Couple of my friends get less than that. I feel i20 Petrol's FE is supposed to be a tad lesser than i10. My 2 cents on hyundai cars based on my experience.

I just read a thread where a bhpian got a brand new T-jet + for about 7.2 OTR.

Thanks, Sam. That is insightful. I thought that with a 1.2 engine, the i20 would be fuel efficient. I am surprised that your i10 is giving you 13kmpl when it has to deal with with 200kgs less body wieght as compared to the i20. I'm not sure what to expect from the Jazz, I am setting up a td for the car tomorrow. Any ideas on what price to quote? I am thinking 4.5L should be a good price...and I really don't want to spend more than that on the car. Thanks

Jazz would be far more FE than the i20 or even the i10 for that matter.

Yep, but new Tjets are not available anymore so that cannot be an option. Could try and use it as a pressure point to reduce the cost down from 8.31.

I am considering buying a Skoda Laura L&K PD AT of early 2008 in Mumbai. What would be the range in which I should expect the price to be? Also would you know of anyone in the forum already owning the car or having owned the car in the past who I can reach out to for help?

Thanks

6.5 to 7lakhs is what you can expect to pay. I had a 2006 Model LnK AT which I sold in 2011 for 6.35lakhs,

Was looking a premium used car for a young businessman who has hired one of my close friends. Cam across a civc advert from Mumbai. Bit humorous.

CAR IN MUMBAI. IMMACULATE CONDITION. ONLY GENUINE SERIOUS BUYERS CALL. People with budget of Rickshaw or lower end cars please don't call. New car on road price - Rs. 17.30 Lacs as of today. If you can afford it then only call.

Though crude, was entertaining. Did I call him? Heck no. BTW found this 17.3Lac car listed for some 7.5Lac.

I have a Swift Dzire VDI [silver] 2012 which I received just before the pooja at Kolkata. Wanted to sell off the car and had put up ads, but received no genuine response. Odometer reading is about just 82 km onw. Have been driving a Ford Fiesta 2006 and a Logan 2008, both diesel. In comparison I do not find this new car much inspiring to drive, though there is no area I can complain. I would like to ask your opinion on what is the maximum price I can expect for this Swift Dzire VDI if I am to attract a buyer?

What would be the FE of a 2010 Honda Accord 2.4 MT? A dealer has offered one for 8 lakhs. Is the poor resale value due to the car being a fuel guzzler?

The moment car leaves showroom, it loses ten percent of its value, even if it's traded the same or next day.
You can perhaps try with ten to fifteen percent off the otr.
You may get better rate if you can trade among friends or family since they would know you personally. Else there is always a doubt in buyers mind as to why someone would sell such a new vehicle. Try disposing it fast since we are at the year end. Come 2013, it will be seen as a year old vehicle.
Did you check with true value just to see what they are willing to offer.

Hello,

Though your Car is as good as new, but still for a potential buyer he is second buyer & he is buying a "Used" Car.

Actually used Diesel Cars are in huge demand but you will have to sell off this car atleast 10% to 15% lesser than current MRP, otherwise it will be difficult to dispose off this Car.

I understand you are driving Ford Fiesta & Logan, but as they are already 6 & 4 years old why not think of selling either one of these Cars & keep this brand new Swift Dzire with you?

Thanks,

As said, you might be looking at a 10% lesser price for that spanking new car. If I may suggest, please try the RD box or Petes for 30K and it might make the car inspiring to drive. That would cost you just 5% of the value you might lose & since it is a plug n play device, your warranty also remains intact. Add to it, you can try those boxes before you actually buy it. This would be my take if I were to take a decision like yours. Incase you are not happy with the box, you can decide to sell the car.
