Well, if you are willing to pay 4L for a used Hatch, why not consider the I10 or I20? Refinement and interior quality are not going to be a problem and you will find decent examples at that price point.

Maruti Ritz and Swift are 2 cars that are really hard to find in the used car market (The good ones i mean). I have been trying to find a good condition example and you are right, the nice ones do get sold out in 2 -3 days. I finally settled for a used Spark with 10K on the odo.

Dear All,

What would be the right price for a 2nd Owner Toyota Corolla 1.8 E, 2006 model with 87k on the odo. Dealer is quoting 3.2L. Car is Pune Registered.
What major expenses could be foreseen for a 87k run Corolla ?

The price should be anything between 2.25-2.75 lakhs depending on the condition of the car. As far as expenses go you might want to check the tires, they could be running bald. Then comes brakes, discs and pads both need to be inspected carefully. A major service could be due around the 1 lakh km mark (timing belt etc.). Have a local mechanic look at the car and if need be service the car right after purchase. Toyotas are known for their reliability so if the car is not abused you should be good to go for a long long time!

3 should be the right price, provided the car has full service history with TASS, work needed is subjective to the car on how it has been used. On 1 lakh kms only additional is the drive belt which will cost you below 3K. Other than that as pointed out check break pads and discs, both put together will cost you about 18 K. Observe for noises in suspension on bad roads, little noise is normal but more means you need to look as suspension components, not all needs to be replaced but a total overhaul of suspension will cost you about 25K. Clutch condition is another area, inherently it is a little hard and gear change is not very smooth. Look at the last work profile sheet of this car made by TASS, they are very particular about it and mention what work is pending on the car, generally they tend to load future work in advance also so it does not mean you need to get everything done at once. If the car owner does not have this but if the car is a regular at TASS you will get it there, otherwise get the car checked at TASS, they tend to inflate the work needed on the car for about next 20K kms so don't be alarmed by their estimate, ask them specifically what work is needed at what intervals. Engine does not need any attention unless abused. Tyres may not need a change if the first set was BS RE88, most of the Corollas came with these, they run for at least 60K kms so what ever is the second set will be in mid life. Its a great car and if you get it right you will find it very difficult to find a suitable replacement, mine is a 2003 done 1.6K kms and I am still not done with it.

After considerable thought and study I have decided to buy a per-worshiped A-Star Zxi since its offers safety features at a low price (my initial plan was to buy a nano).

Over the past few days I have scanned the internet for individual sellers to no avail. The only car I have come across is a 2010 June model Zxi Silky silver car that has run 40K Kms at Bimal Maruthi True Value, Mahadevpura. It comes with a new Amaron battery and dealer has agreed to renew the insurance upto June 2015. The NCB has been retained on the insurance, so i presume the car has not met with a major accident. The dealer has quoted 3.25L all inclusive. I have requested it to be brought down to 3.10L. Is this a good deal?

The car has had its bumpers and driver door painted. The paint does not appear to match. The discoloration is not visible up close, however from a distance of about 15 feet the colour difference becomes obvious. The dealer claims that the difference would reduce after the car is polished, I do not trust this though.
Is it normal for such mismatch to be visible even though the paint job was performed at a Maruthi dealer?
I have attached pics of the same.

The mismatch (although minor) is bugging me big time. However if such a variation is normal and the car's mechanics are sound, I would be interested to buy this car.
Please let me know your thoughts.

What's the actual OTR of the variant?

Aren't these two statements contradicting?! Clearly there was an accident - could be a side swipe or something as well. A-Star was dud and has been out of manufacturing; One of the reasons you are NOT finding many used pieces. So haggle hard - please check carwale used car pricing and bring it down even further.

Asking price is too high for a 4 year old Maruti that is not in production any more.

I am unable to find the OTR in 2010. I know it was 4.8L in 2009.

Oops.. I ment "major accident"

Anyone know if such a colour variation would clear out after polishing?

I think a best offer would be 2.5 - 2.75L going by car wale.

Chances are slim! I suggest you pay close watch on the car if you wanna buy. Also try to get the detailed service report of the car.

The price quoted is too high for the car. I would not pay more than 2.25, keep in mind that it will be really difficult to get a buyer if you want to sell later, and the price you get will be peanuts.
You would get i10, figo etc at the same price

Risky buy due to the following reasons.
High price quoted. Must be 2.5 L.
Vehicle not in production.
Even the old Alto parts are rare in MGP (maruti genuine parts) now.
Resale will be nothing for you.Buy it if you want to keep it for 3 to 4 years.

True singleton and commonman, but my budget is limited and I have taken quite a liking to A*. Plus I will not be able to find a car with a similar safety roster as the A* at that price point.

The paint mismatch will make it ever harder to sell. A small subset of car buyers would want an A* 2 years down the line (I am interested to keep this car for about 4 years though). An ever smaller subset would want the Zxi and a teeeny tiny percentage of that miniscule number would be ok with a two shade silver car! The horror!

I guess its best to stay away from this piece and wait.

Question Second Hand Innova Price Check

In my apartment, one known person is selling his Innova.

Jan 2011 Model, Variant 2.5 Gx 8 STR
Kms 20,000
Extra Fittings Spoiler, Music System, Reverse parking sensors, leather seat covers
Reason for Sale Relocating to US.
Purchase Price all inclusive 14.5L
Asking price 12.25L

Carwale says around 10L if the vehicle is in excellent condition.

Any suggestions on the max value I can pay which will make this a sweet deal?

Thanks,
Rajat

Hello Rajat, given the model year and running, I would have called this a "superb find", but after looking at the asking price, I cannot dare to call it a "steal deal". For all the accessories, leather seat covers etc, you can add a max of 1 lacs over the carwale price of 10 lacs. So I suggest you start with 10 lacs, then go to 10.5 lacs and max out at 11 lacs. It will all depend how desperate he is to sell off his car before he moves out of the country.
