Don't we always compare the price for a used car depending upon its OTR value? I have always done that while buying and selling all my cars till date. The market mood is not so dull to warrant a close to 40% decrease in the price of the car in just 18 months. That too given the factor that Toyota's generally command higher resale values compared to VW/
Skoda/chevrolet. Also if you look at the prices being quoted in the various classifieds then you would see a vehicle of the same condition being put up for sale for around 12-13L across the board. There might be some room for negotiation in that but surely not amounting to 3-4L. I sincerely would want to buy a similar car for 9L in delhi .

When I buy I compare with Ex-showroom price, When I sell I compared with OTR - Normal Human way of thinking. - Sadly the buyer will still compare with Ex-Showroom price.

Anyways Carwale Give the Buyers price as about 10.27 when one is buying from a dealer a car in excelent condition, and 9.73 for a vehicle in good condition. The Selling price though would be much lower. I do think that that should be about what one would be able to buy for. Carwale I have felt does have as expected a difference from real prices but always a bit on the higher side, so felt that actual sale prices were lower than what was shown and actual buying price lower than what is mentioned.

Of course there would be errors but as mentioned I do believe that the specific segment in question can actually have price drops to the extent that we see mentioned. It is not specific to Toyota but to all vehicles in the segment. Again a Toyota (like Fortuner, or Innova - both of which lead in their segments) would normally retain value well but that is if the model in question is selling well, but the Altis presently is not really top of the charts in that segment so it will not hold value that well either.

http://www.carwale.com/used/CarValua...=23254833&vt=1

Anyways this is all hypothesis and I am neither a buyer nor a seller presently and most likely neither are you. We are only debating the accuracy of Carwale, and I do agree that it does at times make for incorrect values but in my view it normally presents too rosey a picture.

I can understand why women tend to like spark than alto! But in that case, make sure that lady sees the 2010-2012 beige interior spark too. I am sure she will fall in love with that
Ani_meher, sure now its in our to do list to show the lady the beige interior spark, if we get one in reasonable price and conditions . Thanks very much for your pointer.

Hey Folks,

I have with me a Ford Fiesta 1.4 - 2007, 48000 kms on the clock - in excellent condition - clutch as smooth as new. The interior and exteriors can be rated very good if not excellent.

What is an ideal value which I can expect for the same in hyderabad ? I would love to hear a totally honest opinion as if you're the buyer !!

Thank you.

Don't know about Kerala, but this car wouldn't fetch more than 6lakhs in Mumbai even if it was in an amazing condition. Had come across an 06 model CRDi Tuscon in good condition where the owner was asking for 5lakhs and would probably be up for negotiating in the 4.5-4.75lakhs range.

You are right nikhil. This one seems to be overpriced.
I have checked in carwale and olx. In both the price
is around 6 to 6.5 lacs. Let me go and do some talk with the dealer.

I have seen all kinds of crazy quotes for Fortuner in Bangalore. This must be the old shape. What ever the seller quotes do not pay anything more than 18 L.

Don't know about Hyderabad, in Bangalore you may get 3.75 - 4 L. So you can safely look at 3.5 L there.

A very sparingly used 2007 Feb Civic S AT (Genuine 22K KMs on the odo). Is 5.25 lacs a reasonable price to pay in Hyderabad?

It is a lakh more than what is OK. If you really like the car may be 4.5 L at the most. See how is battery, tyres etc, if anything needs to be changed then you can bring down the price that much.

I have a 2011 Ritz vdi kerala reg that has clocked 40k kms. There has been no accidents.Full service history is available with me. What is the best price I can fetch? I have gone through various sites but all of them are demanding ridiculously high price.For eg a 2010 Ritz vdi with 61k on the odometer is asking 5lacs. Hence I am a bit perplexed. Please assist me.

4 should be a decent price there, in Bangalore it would fetch 4.25 L at best.
