Just outta curiosity: why a diesel Octavia instead of say a pre-owned Vento/Rapid?
Well, i would'nt part with her for 4.5 L .

No one at home actually wants to part with the car....we all love the Octavia's handling, power, old school looks, big boot.etc etc. So we were just wondering if we should sell her & buy her diesel sister....BTW how much would a 2009 Diesel Octavia cost ?

Hey buddy, sorry I didn't mean to disappoint you there.

I agree; the car should ideally fetch a lot more than that but that is how it is mate.

And I'm actually with you on that one. The Octy 1.8 TPI is such a fab car; I was wondering why would you want to part with her in the first place??

You won't get anything like this turbo petrol today even at twice the price. Since you've obviously taken so much pains to keep her in top shape and everyone in the family loves her, retain the car. You will always struggle to find the right value for it. Unfortunately high-end petrols are dying a slow death in this country.

P.S. A 2009 Diesel Octy could go for anything from Rs. 5.5-6.5 Lacs depending on various factors. Anything keeping you from wanting to consider a pre-worshipped Vento btw?

That sounds good

See, the problem is that none of us like the looks of the Vento or Laura or even the Rapid or else we would have gone for a new one.....The vento & Rapid are not notchjbacks (we like notchbacks) and the Laura Diesel is a mite too big and seems high maintenance and we all STILL LIKE THE OCTAVIA. If we keep our lovely petrol Octavia and drive 80 km per day we will go bankrupt........we are confused !!

Hi,

Please tell me if a 2009 Ford Fusion Diesel ABS at 42000 km in TN quoted at 4.5 lacs would be worth it? Also are spares and maintenance for this model a cause for concern?

Kindly provide inputs .

Thanks !

Hi guys...

Have come across a 2007 optra TDCI LT with 55k kms on the odo going for 4.25lac.
car feels good to drive and exterior is almost new like.
Only problem is ABS sign on the dashboard keeps glowing.Does it signify some problem with the brakes?

Hello,

Rs. 4.5 lacs for 2009 Ford Fusion Diesel with 42000 on ODO is little on higher side, as the model is not manufactured any more. I will suggest 2008 / 2009 Swift Diesel that will be available almost at the same prices.

As far as this car is concerned, I will not pay more than Rs. 4 lacs.

Thanks,

Hello sr,
4.25L for Optra seems a good price. The ABS sign flickering is an issue. It could be a simple fuse issue or a complex malfunction. The only way to find out is to hook it up to a diagonistic computer @ the A.S.S. The question is - will the dealer allow you to take the car to the A.S.S?
Hope this helps
Varun

Test Drove a 20 months old Linea MJD EP and drove good(not excellent, not bad either).

Owner is asking for 7Lacs (Bangalore). I am thinking more like 6.25L.

What do you guys say ?

PS: The front grille is little broken and there are dents on the wheel arches - so not really a worshipped machine by the current owner. Also, the current owner is the second owner since it's a company leased vehicle transferred to self a couple of months back.

See this post and See if you can find a deal like this. As described you, Car is not in excellent condition, 7l is a bit high IMO.

7lacs is way overpriced for a linea IMO. I would not pay more than 5.5 for one in the condition you described since the exterior tells a tale of what else might be wrong or on the verge of failing mechanically/technically.

Linea is a resale disaster! And we are talking about an abused car with a second owner in less than 2 years. I don't see a reason why it should be more than 5.5 L. I suggest you check the service history thoroughly before negotiating further.

Hello procircuit,
Since petrol cars are a big no - no in today's market senario,more so an AT car, you can get very good deals on it. I expect you can get a 2008 Civic AT run 46k's from around 4.75-5.25L. Bargain hard & stay on your quote. See how quickly dealers drop price
Happy hunting
Hope this helps,
Varun

Hello Steve,

Firstly the price of Rs. 7 lacs is very high, I will not pay more than Rs. 6 lacs for this car.

But please note that you will be third owner of this Car & the resale value will drastically drop when you try to sell it. As as the car is not very well maintained, I will suggest you to avoid this Car.

Thanks,

My plans for a used Cedia bombed due to the sky rocketing spare parts and their availability.

Stumbled across a Ford Fiesta 1.6 S, here are the details :

Year of purchase: Nov 2009
KMs run till date : 37000 kms only
Condition of the car : Claims to be 'Excellent'
Expected price: 4.3L

Can you gurus please advise if it makes sense to go for this car considering the current petrol prices. I intend to use it in weekends but still might increase my usage gradually.

Your thoughts please.
