He is working in a government organization where he has for himself a chauffeur driven car and bought this car for his wife and son. When spoke about the insurance he was not bothered and said that he rather keep the car than sell it for a less price. So I walked away politely saying "thank you".
Even if I get the car at 4.30L am afraid the car would depreciate heavily due to 2nd owner tag and it being a petrol!
If you are so interested, seal the deal for 4.40L itself. He would have said 4.8L to your friend knowing that they will haggle & bring down the price. Am also a bit surprised that inspite of the low mileage on the ODO, the car didn't sell quick!

Edit: if you plan to keep the car only for 4-5 years or 40-50K kms, then try for well maintained cars run upto 40K kms for much lower prices. You could even look at 2 segments higher for the same budget in that case.

Hello Nilesh,

2009 Honda City MT for Rs. 5.5 seems to be a good price, still try to bring it down to Rs. 5.25 lacs. Also if Mahindra First Choice is giving one year warranty on crucial parts of the Car then it will be really good.

Only thing, I feel 59,000 KMS on ODO is a little on higher side for me. But I have personally seen 2006 Honda City with 90,000 KMS on ODO in very good condition. Please ensure that Car is well maintained & check service history, if available. Also check whether no claim bonus is present on insurance policy.

Thanks,

Thanks Jignesh. Yes, 59k is high for me too, that's why I am concerned.
Also, plan to check the NCB too, yes.

I am also looking for a Linea Diesel top-end, so will see how it goes.

Saw this ad on our classifieds.

Honda City ZX Exi (2008) sale in Kolkata

Is this a decent price to pay? I'm yet to check the car in person though.

Hi Nilesh,
The price looks to be a tad on the higher side. My view is you should try to close the deal between 4.85 lakhs - 5.00 lakhs.

Dear Friends,

One of my colleague is planning to take used car from a dealer and the details are as below -

Model: Aveo 1.4 LS
Color: Maroon
Model: 2007
Odo: 43,000
Price: 2, 86, 000/-

What should be the price he could ask for. I told him that this car is discontinued, but still he is interested on this. Please suggest the best price.

Will be picking it up for 3.9L. Looks to be a nice deal. And those guys are going for brand new Brio AT.

It should be decent enough, i myself selling City Zx GXi (50K kms) for 3.3lakhs to dealer ( I bought Duster).

I couldn't find any good value in Hyderabad, every one say one word 'petrol'.

Seems. Very good to me.

I sold an NHC Exi Jan 2005 model 67k odo
For 3.25 lacs to an individual this july.

In comparison, the listed car is much newer and has lesser miles.
If it has been maintained nicely (as it does say doctor driven), this is a steal

I will be suspectful of anything from Mahindra First choice. Search on this forum for horror stories. Bad battery condition, failed electricals, failed moving parts, Odometer tampering, tinkered body parts passed off as "Accident -Free" , not honouring warranty, shabby job in their 24 point checkup etc. You name it, they have it. I am personally yet to meet someone who is happy with his used car purchase from FC.

I suggest you try to get hold of an individual buyer if possible. Carwale and Team-bhp classifieds are good places to start off. You will get a slightly better price and peace of mind that the ODO is not tampered. Do ensure you verify service history with the service center and take along a known mechanic to verify the condition of the car though..

Well, not entirely. I would say, the trust level on the cars that we see in our classifieds, as well as the dealers are equal. For a buyer, there should be the same amount of effort put for verifying the authenticity of the vehicle he is purchasing, whether its from a direct seller, or a dealer.

Getting a good second hand car is a 50-50 stuff. If we get a well maintained, good car at 40-50% its original value, its a lottery. But it can go all the way the other side as well if we are cheated.
It all boils down to how much effort we put in, plus our luck
