Friends, I need a pre-owned Civic. Test drove a 2007 Civic S Manual yesterday.
67k kilometers on the odo, car is clean inside. A small dent below the door, probably scrapped a speed breaker with original paint.
The clutch seemed a bit reluctant, had to press my foot all the way down and release very slowly for the car to get moving. However the power was great and suspension seemed OK to me. Brakes were squeaking a little, probably need skimming or new pads.

The dealer is charging 4L for the car as is. Isn't this too low a price for a seemingly well maintained Civic?
A 2008 automatic V was available for 4.6L.

I am confused now.

Check how many owners the car has.Verify condition of the tyres,engine mount,insurance etc.Having more than one owner will reduce resale value.

Good quality 07 Civics go for around 4lakhs or below these days. The price you were quoted wasnt too low. If there was more than 1 owner you can expect to get an 07 Civic for 3.5 -3.75lakhs.

One of my friend just got himself a used fortuner 4*2 AT, 1.5 months old, 7k kms done for 21 lakhs. Car is in scratch less condition, Drives like a new car should.

What do you guys say about this deal ?

That's a steal. He must be really lucky. Going by the used car prices of fortuner he shouldn't have got it for anything led than 22.5 and even more perhaps. What is the OTR price in Delhi?

7K kilometers in just 1.5 months That's pretty unrealistic.

Ofcourse it should! After all its just a one month old machine!

It's not a deal, its a steal Can't imagine that Toyotas depreciate so fast!


And lastly why did the seller sell a Fortuner that is barely a month and a half old?

Hello Derezzed,

Rs. 4 lacs is perfect price for 2007 Civic S Manual.

Before buying check the service history of the car & ensure that Tyres were changed at scheduled interval. Regarding clutch & other minor issues - one service will get it all right.

If the car is well maintained with no accident history, you can go ahead & buy this Car. Try to negotiate further, dealer might give it away for Rs. 3.8 / 3.9 lacs.

Thanks,

Dear BHPians, am on the lookout for a good used Honda Civic. Based in Kerala, a preliminary search in T-BHP classifieds page brought up this '07 Civic quoting 6.5 lacs. Need all your expert guidance as to a fair price (I read above that 4 lacs is a good price for '07 Civic) and where should I look for to get one in that range.

Hello shabahmad,
1 - 2L for a 2006 Cedia seems like an OK price. Although a mouth watering deal will be arounf the 1.6-1.75L mark. Remember that the Cedia is among the long list of duds from Mitsubishi. So haggle hard.
Contact bhp'ian mandheers. He has a brilliant red Cedia. He will be the best person to talk to about the pros & cons of owning a Cedia. He stays in Mumbai too.

2 - The only good FNG that I can recommend in Mumbai, is - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/mumbai...ar-mumbai.html (Select Auto Garage - Sunil Shanbaug (Dadar, Mumbai))

3 - I don't know about FNG's in Pune. Check out the Pune directory.

Regards,
Varun

The prices of both cars seem fair enough,although a VFM price would be 5.5L for car no-1

Guys,

Thanks for your suggestion. Most likely I will be closing the deal tomorrow. Mar'11 manufactured, June '11 Registered Punto 90 HP, 18K on the ODO for 5.55L in Chennai.

I could have closed the deal at 5.45 - 5.5 but agreed to pay higher. Well Maintained, Reverse Parking Sensor , Good Seat Covers (Cost 9K) , etc made me pay a little higher premium.

Bulb warning is because of a fused Number Plate Bulb.

Regards
Marlon

Yes, indeed a steal. His father bought the car from one of his friend and deal just happened in the moment. He only came to know about the car, when she came home.
