Hi Team,
Picked up a pre-owned Safari 2.2 EX (March 2011) at 7.10 Lakhs including brokerage,RTO transfer and a good cleaning(interior, exterior and a some touch up.).It came at a premium due to very low running (18000 km) and being well maintained. Pictures will follow.
Cheers !!
Abhay.

Kindly suggest.
That quote is high for a 8 year Alto. It should go for not more than 1.3l-1.4, if not less.
My Swift Lxi 2005 was quoted for 1.8l on this thread.

True Value wants to make a huge profit, so walk away.

How much can I expect for a 2009 Dec SX4 ZXI VVT run 43,000km in Bangalore. I am the 2nd owner and the car is in very good condition.

2006 Santro Xing is available for around 1L in NCR, why go for even an older model of Alto for 1.4 L?

Hello everybody, I am from Bangalore and looking to buy a used car with a fixed budget of 2.5 lacs. My initial options were the Santro Xing and WagonR. After a lot of confusion between the two, we have finally zeroed in on the WagonR. We are more inclined towards the WagonR purely because of Maruti's brand name and the more nominal costs of maintenance (considering that a used car is more liable for change of spares sooner compared to a brand new one). Buying a new car is not an option right now.

Since I am new to buying cars, I would like to know what is the exact model and features of WagonR I should be going for (with the consideration that I would be holding on to this car for the next 3 to 4 years). For example, I encountered a single owner 2008 WagonR VXI limited edition with ABS and Airbags, but the downside to it was that it had run 75k KM and had unkempt interiors. I encounter deals where the car looks good and is a 2007/2008 model (with the newer front grill design), but would have run 65k KM or more and I encounter a 2005 model which has run 40k KM. It increases the confusion as to what to go for; a newer model or lesser KM run as sometimes both the types of cars would have been maintained well.

Thanks in advance! Cheers!

Is this for real?
I won't pay more than 45-50K for a 10 year old alto.

Doesn't make sense. I wonder on what basis True Value and others quote such prices.
If you look in our Classifieds, you will see cars and bikes being quoted at almost 50-75% more of what they are actually valued at and worth.
It is become like property prices now and a common man cannot afford anything .
I would stay away from an 8 year old Alto being sold for such a price.

True value prices are always high but this is a new high ! I have seen instances in my extended family where folks in smaller towns who don't look beyond Maruti being taken for a royal ride by TrueValue especially for M800, Alto and the WR

I am also of the opinion that True Value is trying to make exorbiant profits by taking advantage of the trust Indians have in the brand.
I sold my 2002 Alto LX with 107000kms in march 2012 for 1 lakh rupees which I feel is not a bad deal considering the kms the vehicle has run.

Santro Xing parts are the cheapest in its class resulting in cheap service outside H.A.S.S.. It's only Hyundai's ride with is derided everywhere, but, when compared to Wagon-R, it is a battle of equals. I would suggest look out patiently for both cars models, with lesser mileage & slightly older model, which you can buy cheap & modify as per your whims with the budget you have.

Best of luck with your search .

with what all others have to say. Even if you are buying the car in South India (with higher taxes IMO), you are almost paying 1.5 times the correct market value of the car. These days even True Value outlets are not reliable & we have a documented case on TBHP itself.

Best option would be to refer classifieds, & take the help of a trusted mechanic or expert & you will save money, even if you pay the third party reasonable commission/ service charges.
