Thanks,
Thank you!

When I say rural area , its less than 20 kms away from Kochi city where all these dealers are present. His usage is mainly for occasional local trips.

I would have gone for the Ford Fiesta given the excellent handling and driving dynamics and would be a grand upgrade from the M800. But given that your neighbor is based out at rural area, it would make more sense to invest in makes from Maruti or Hyundai since their spare parts are readily available. A well maintained Esteem or Dzire would be more practical in this case.

2. Mahindra Logan 1.6 GLX - 2007 - 52000 kms - 2L

He is based in Kochi rural and monthly usage is not more than 500 kms. He wish to retain the car for next five years. Both cars are single owner and service history available.

What is the fair price for above cars? Which one is best suited in terms of maintenance and spare parts availability?

Sold 2009 February Fiat Linea Emotion Pack MJD run 113000kms for 2.85lakhs.
Was getting quotes from 1.5 to 2.2.
Got a decent quote so sold her, moreover after a couple of months the car would be a year older which again would have hit the value.
I think I got a nice price considering it was a Fiat that too had clocked 100,000kms.
Had she had a suzuki badge upfront might have bagged 50 k extra.

Dont call of any of the places in Kerala as Rural ..20 km from Kochi is Metro!!!

Since the plan is to keep 5 years, I suggest not to consider both. Ford will be too expensive to maintain, Logan may not be reliable after an age.

Your friend should get about 3.5-3.75. A friend of mine sold his 2010 Ldi done 1.36L kms for 3.25L, tyres needed replacement and some body work, suspension etc about 25K worth of work pending.

Folks, I'm being offered a Honda City May 2012 VAT by an individual in Pune.

It has 17 K on it and 2 large scrapes on the doors. Otherwise it's in very good condition.

They are asking 7.5 for it but I feel they should be negotiable. Service history is clean.

What would be a reasonable price? I understand that Honda City resale has gone lower due to release of new City version.

Thanks.

VAT was the costliest Civic. In 2.5 yrs they are taking a big hit selling for 7.50L.
But from your perspective, try getting it to 7L. Civic is a beautiful machine that ages slow. It will serve you for years to come.

I guess vipul mentioned about the CITY and not the CIVIC.

I am not sure there would be much difference in the OTR price and what the seller is expecting. How much is the seller asking for? At best you can deduct 20% depreciation. I personally feel it's more worth to buy a new car since the difference may not be significant.
