Default The Good Deals on Used Cars thread

Many times when we are going through classifieds, we will see a car which looks like a good deal. It may have run very few kms, or the condition may look great in the pictures, or it may even have a good price tag. Now the car may not be what we are looking for, but someone else may be looking for just that.

Why post in this thread when its there on some classifieds anyway? Because people may miss seeing the deal, or it could be on some site which other people don't visit.

So lets just post the links to ads which we see on classifieds like tbhp, carwale, olx, etc along with some details.

City :
Make and Model :
Year :
Kilometers run :
Asking Price :
Link to ad :


Also if a friend, or colleague, or family member is selling a car which you know is in good condition, or genuine or can vouch for it, then post the details here adding a contact number too if there is no ad for it anywhere else.

I'm gonna start off with 2 cars -

City : Mumbai
Make and Model : BMW 530D
Year : 2010
Kilometers run : 5000
Asking Price : 30,00,000
Link to ad : http://www.carwale.com/used/cardetails.aspx?car=D422547

City : Mumbai
Make and Model : Honda Accord V6
Year : 2009
Kilometers run : 5000
Asking Price : 14,00,000
Link to ad : http://www.carwale.com/used/cardetails.aspx?car=D419640

These are just 2 examples of low run cars, which have a decent scope of negotiation for price. Hopefully someone who may have missed seeing these ads will benefit from it.

Again requesting you to only post pics of ads which are of low run kms cars, or cars in great condition, or cars at a good price, or cars which are not listed anywhere but you can vouch for.

You can go to various used car dealers for the Civic. Not all cars with dealers are bad. Just be thorough while looking at a dealer car. I do think that you will be able to get a late 09 Civic AT for around 7L sooner rather than later.

Re. the old gen Laura. I do not know the vintage (age of cars) that you are currently considering but you should get good condition 2007 Laura DSG for around 6L. In fact in Gurgaon I recently came across a late 2006 Laura DSG L&K in very good condition. The car had done genuine 108000 kms with full service history and sold for 4.75L. Like I said Laura ATs have horrible resale values. If you are comfortable maintaining a car on your own then you can land one on the cheap and keep the spare cash for any future troubles. However if you don't want to get into any hassles and if your monthly running is low then you are much better off with the Civic even though in my personal opinion the 'potential' issues with the 6 speed Laura DSG ATs are a bit overrated.

Hello everyone

I found a used March 2008 Sonata Embera MT Leather done 36550 kms for sale for 6.25 lacs from a dealer in Bangalore. This includes his commission and RTO charges. Color is black. Single owner. Havent seen the service history and insurance history yet. Will be checking them tomorrow. I did a price check on carwale.com and the website suggest 6.15 for good condition. Externally it looks good and the seats look good too. Tyres have 15-20 kms life in them. Is this good value?

I plan to test drive the car for 10-20 kms tomorrow. Also planning to take the used car check list from team-bhp. If satisfied I also plan to get it checked either at Trident service center at Jakkasandra or Advaith service centre on Banarghatta road. Searching team-bhp both service centers have been rated good and bad.

Any suggestions would help.

Dear All,
There is a HR Regd Single Owner Cherry Red Honda CRV Dec 2006 2.4 MT done 29,000 kms. I will be getting it checked thoroughly at Ring Road Honda before finalizing but in order for me to take that trouble I was wondering what a good price band would be. I offered 7.3 including service, Brokerage, insurance and RTO charges so that is about 6.8 for the actual buy.

Is that a good offer or should i lower/increase it?

2006? Is that the outgoing model or the one before that. Because i believe the previous CR-V was introduced in 2007 in India.
If it is the newer one, the deal is pretty good, but the ODO is pretty low. Make sure to check for any tampering. If genuine deal for the newer generation, good deal i must say!

Its the new (almost) 2007-2012 shape. According to the RC Card it says Dec 2006 . Its a Red color CRV. Will be getting the ODO and everything else checked but i'm thinking of sticking to my offer. Will keep this thread posted. As people on this thread have said earlier, the number of CRVs changing hands is quite low so there is no real "market" value for a lot of these deals. The broker in this case agreed for 7.4 without servicing. Anyway will keep you guys posted. Thanks!

Definitely do not increase your offer. Is it HR 26 (Gurgaon registered) or other districts? Other HR numbers have lower resale. In fact exercise extra caution in paperwork if it is other HR registered car. Also red colour has lower resale. The RTO charges (I believe the broker will just get you a NOC for Hyderabad or wherever you want to register the car) are not much - less than 2k. I believe that 7L should have been your absolute high price inclusive of everything. That being said I do realise that you have been looking for a CRV for long so a slight premium is ok. But do not increase your offer and take a hard stance on including service in that price. IMO the broker will blink first here.

Instead of just putting up what we see in the ads, I think this thread would serve a better and sharper purpose if we put up only personally well known cars or already inspected cars which we can vouch for. Ads carry all sorts of lies and only a personal inspection of the vehicles and their papers will give us any idea if that car is worth a shout here. Just my .02.

+1 to that. I suggest is if we share the classified of a car we can personally vouch for - say from our own classifieds (external would be ok too i guess).

Also, people will then be able to seek additional inputs from members if they are interested.

I think that Deals like these are quite good ESPECIALLY AND ONLY FOR THOSE WITH LOW KMS / MONTH usage who would not mind a Petrol. These are good vehicles.

Feel the Kizashi could be had for as low as 10.5L if bargained hard, it is a god vehicle and did not sell well as at all.

Also with a X1 refresh coming in X1 petrol should be a good buy and the price could be even lower as the petrol varient had so few buyers that BMW is probably not eveing going to have it as an option with the Refresh (reported but not sure.)

A4 3.2 Petrol Quatro will require a Home Petrol Pump I guess but the joy of driving will be unmatched.

All great cars for low kms / month usage. Sadly never in my zone with my 2500 -3000 kms / month average.

I think we need to restrict ourselves to low kms vehicle - basically good vehicles that did not sell would be good buys for certain customers. Also India duds from brands like Volvo (XC) and Renault (Fluence, Koleos) would make for great buys as the vehicles themselves are great.

On the lower end of the spectrum Petrol AT (Hyundai i10) which is now out of favour (I have one - but not for sale) would be a good deal.

Great Idea Akshay.
