Sold my 2008 Honda Accord Automatic clocked 37000 kms, single owner, New tyres(2000kms done), New battery,17" Plati Alloys, Gold colour for 8.10L to a direct customer. I think it was a great price for an immaculately maintained car. Sold the car as it was not used much. Will be going in for a smaller engine capacity petrol or diesel Automatic. If any chennai BHPian selling please pm me.

It will be hard to find the A Star AT in the used car market for 2 major reasons. One, it was not a successful model for MSIL and two, ATs never were a big sell in the Indian market at least up till now. I would say keep looking, and be flexible to buy an older car (2011 or 2010) if you happen to find a decent example.

That's what my take on the price was. BTW didn't you find any A-Star ATs at True Value? There prices may be a bit on the higher side but they do also negotiate quite a bit.

My brother is buying a used Innova VX (top end), 7 seater, 2013 May model, single owner, run 20000 kms in excellent condition. Insurance has been renewed last month. Asking price is 15.5 lacs through a dealer. Is it a fair buy ? Please advice.

I am speechless. Innova doesn't seem to depreciate at all.

Dealers are known to rollback the odometer of the cars. A well maintained innova whether 80K KMs run or 20K KMs run will "feel" the same.
Do check the service logs, tyre manufacturing year to ensure that everything is in sync & the dealer is not cheating you.

True to an extent. But then see, this is from Nandi toyota with "Toyota Certified" badge with 2 yrs / 30000 kms warranty. My understanding is that Toyota doesn't certify accidental or odo tampered vehicles. So they would obviously ask for a addl premium. My general observation is that demand for used innova has come down a little bit (stress on 'little') due to, probably Duster. And please note Innova VX onroad BLR price is currently 18 lacs.

Service history is clean.
Tyres are genuine. (Spare tyre has not even touched the road yet).
Again since this is Toyota Certified I have to believe the car is genuine. Apart from engine feel (as you said for 20k vs 80k), interiors are something which are indicative of 'use' and this case they are very very clean (both interiors and exteriors). Keeping my fingers crossed.

Here is one catch. The standard company waranty is for 3 years or 1 lakh kms (whichever is earlier). Now the car in question in just one year old and has run 20K kms. So ideally it should have a warranty of 2 years or 80K kms (whichever is earlier). However Nandi Toyota is offering only 2years/30K kms. Not that it is bad. If your annual running is going to be 15K or lesser, then you need not even bother. But if it is going to be anywhere above it, then the kms will be consumed faster and you would be out of warranty even before you complete 2 years.

Getting the maximum warranty for used cars always helps, not just for the piece of mind, but pocket as well.

Good point. But so let me ask you the million dollar question -is the original toyota warranty applicable for second owner?

Of course. Warranty doesn't lapse if owner is changed.

I have not read the fine print of the terms and conditions of Toyota Innova's warranty clause or for that matter any other car manufacturer's. However technically speaking the warranty should not get void or reduced only because the car ownership is changing hands. May be forum members who have purchased used cars and claimed warranty can shed more light on this. Let me be honest and confess that I am definitely not in a position to comment on your query that authoritatively.

20K on the Odo, with good service history But "no wheel rotation done" ? Sounds odd.

My youngest brother is planning to buy a Skoda Octavia (2003, Diesel) sparingly used and well maintained by a college principal. How much can he shell out to buy it? The owner is quoting 2,50,000.

Is it worth the price or should we negotiate more on it?

How much has it run? 2.5L itself looks good if there is NO work that needs to be done immediately. Any reason why the car is quoted low ? Skoda's (diesel) usually are NOT that cheap in the used market (especially down south). Hope you have enough money parked in for any urgency that may arise - Skoda's are neither cheap to service.

You may ask 2L and try to close the deal at 2.25L.
