That is exactly what I have quoted - That used car dealers will not offer you more than Rs. 75,000 for this Car (may be even less).

But if he manages to get a direct buyer, he can get a better price. Because if you scan the used car market, the (used car) dealers now-a-days are not much interested in buying / selling cars under Rs. 2 lacs as their margins in these low priced cars will be very less. Thus many times buyers have to search & buy such cars directly from seller by quoting little higher prices.

Thanks,

True you will always get the best price from a direct buyer but I was suggesting that 75-80k is the max he could expect from a direct buyer itself. Dealers even less.

Hello Torquedo,
2 previous owners & just 48K's??!! Something seems fishy. If I were you, the max I would pay is 3.5-3.75L. Or better, avoid this car.

Take all service records from ASS & check the current NCB of the car, before taking the deal forward.

Regards,
Varun

Hello Torquedo,

Frankly speaking I will suggest to avoid this car. Reason - it is already a second owner car & currently it is sold by a dealer. Which means service history will not be available & most probably ODO meter would have been tampered with by the used car dealer.

While buying second hand cars, generally prefer first owner cars & availability of full service history in case of high end cars.

Thanks,

Hello 2000rpm,

Welcome to T-BHP.

Rs. 4.65 for a 2008 Honda Civic MT in excellent condition is really good price. Add to the fact that Rs. 4.65 also includes transfer cost. You got this sweet deal from a used car dealer?

Hope you have read Frankmehta's thread on his (wonderful) experience with his recently purchased 2007 Honda Civic - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...matic-cng.html

Thanks,

You have not mentioned the odo-reading nor whether it has a full service history. It seems like it was an okay price though

I think you need to specify the kms run also for an assessment. The value will be different on case it has done 65000 km vis--vis say 30000 km. On a side note, I am also in the market for a civic and would be glad if you could share some of your shortlisted cars along with the assessment on these.

Sorry Guys, missed mentioning the Odo reading

The car was run 44000 Kms (44643 to be precise), Service history was available till 38252 (approx) which I assume was the last servicing done.

I checked out multiple cars in suburban areas like Borivali, Andheri which were priced similarly but were in relative much poorer condition than the car I got.

I speciifically remember a very well maintained Civic 2008 V AT, which I rejected as I was looking for a Manual Transmission Car. You can check if its still available, will share the details with you (Time Period I am refering to is Last week of Jan 2013 )

I think the price is wonderful. But then again, I am a newbie in the used car market. Could you kindly pm me the details of the AT please?

Hi All,
I am getting a test drive car from BMW Infiniti with the below mentioned details :
320d 2012 sports line without sunroof model , mumbai registered with 21k on the odo for about 30 lacs.
Do u think it's a good idea to go in for a test drive vehicle (as I will surely purchase the 5 year BSI package) ? If yes, then at what price?
Cheers
Sid

In that case the price you paid is pretty appropriate but you ought to be celebrating the fact that you found a used Civic that you were satisfied with. It is hard to be entirely sure in the used-car market plus with there being several civics around that suddenly lost all resale value there were also several ones with tampered readings etc. Here's to a good find

Cheers!

Guys, a few pages back, I had posted a query regarding buying a used Civic. I am still looking for a nice Civic.

Meanwhile, do you think I should wait for the Ecosport? The base petrol may cost 6.5 on road. I am somehow happy about the fact that the Civic is more powerful, has an A/T with paddle shifts and is a bigger car but the ES will be a brand new car, looks fresher, has much better GC and has lots of features to offer.
