Is that a City or a Civic? A late model Civic at that price is just fabulous....

I can't believe this. It means if a 1.8SMT model it's almost 50% down in 2 years! if its a higher variant all the more fun.

Grab it my friend! Its a steal if its a Civic, city - i do not know.

Can't be a Honda City for 6.50 so I guess it's a Civic.
Check out properly if there's any other issue with the car.

either the seller is unaware of the market rates or there is something more about the history of the car that meets the eye.
Try to find out the history, to get some peace of mind and drain your pockets to snatch this beauty.
All the best!
In Chennai, 3.5 L for a second owner 2007 Maruti Swift VXI (Non-ABS) is definitely not an attractive price. On 2 YRS old car at 4.40 lakhs - Brand new costs around 4.9 lakhs on road

2001 OHC not more than 1.9L....... Even a dealer would be happy to pick paying Rs.2 lakhs & sell it to some invidual with an additional Rs.25-30k

Having said that Iam not an expert and may be wrong though, as recent times I have not interacted with the used market much

6.5 - Too high for a 07 City and Too low for a 07 Civic. Please Edit.

has he got a custom ICE there? if so if he is not giving that, ask him to give the OEM one.
7.5 also seems ok.
What is the model? SMT or SAT? 2007 SMT costed 11lakhs and SAT costed 11.7lakhs for the car. Add to it the registration, road tax,insurance. 2007 also saw the V model which was VMT at 12.4 and VAT at 13.1 lakhs for the car alone.

Normally SMT, the least of it would be now 7.7 lakhs for insurance IDV considering 30% depreciation. If going by that benchmark 7.5 is ok.

But check the vehicle thoroughly.

Mileage should not be an issue if you drive your vehicle with a light foot.

I get 10-12 in city and 15-17 on highway and never run my car without System G.

Go ahead and have a blast with your ride(hopefully).
OK. Here's the final deal I had .

Ford Ikon 1.6 Zxi NXT
Black color
Apr 2005
34k on the ODO
Single owner Bangalore Registration
Stanley Leather seats
Spoiler and exhaust trim
Very good interiors and nice mechanical condition

Bought it at 2.70 + ownership transfer charges.

Thanks for your invaluable suggestions.

I am hooked on to Maruti Suzuki Gypsy. I have been trying to find a good one for sometime now. I like the Gypsy King for the shear majestic stance that it takes when standing. I looking for a 1998 to 2001 - 02 model. What would be the correct price.

Congrats Buddy, you sure will enjoy it a lot and the Stanley Leather seats are a bonus for this deal.

Use System G regularly.

1.75L for a 2000 stock gypsy king is a good price

I see the gypsys and other jeeps modified for the looks. Will that be against laws of RTO. I have read in a 4x4 thread about fine for changing to alloys?

How do you guys who own these ones tackle it? Do registering such a vehicle on second hand purchase have any hurdle?

Default BHPians Help required to buy a Honda CityZx

Friends,
My colleague is selling his Honda City ZX Gxi 2007 Model 16000KM, Auto Gear (CVT? stock tyre (175/65/R14), "no-alloys" driver driven car.

Fuel economy 10KM/L (as per the seller), but my resources says CVT gives very less mileage, and it has less resale value.
Reason for selling relocation.

1.What will be the service cost if any CVT-gearbox issues comes in the future?

2. How much i can quote for. Since he is my boss's boss i can not negotiate much or pull back if i found something later to re-negotiate.

3. Should i get a mechanic to verify the car for previous accident? Any other way to get the accident history?

Thanks in advance.
