Exactly right Zulfi Hansi. Used car prices are ridiculous in Bangalore. I have spoken to people asking for even 2 lakhs for 2003-2005 lancers.

P.S:- I found a '2002 Lancer for sale' ad in quicker. The guy was asking Rs.1.4 L. It was a black lancer with CF sticker on the bonnet. I called up the guy, who said its already got sold off about a month back. Two days back, I was travelling back from Hebbal to my place in Kundalahalli and saw this same Lancer in a used car showroom with a price tag of Rs.1.75 L negotiable

I think this is among the first batch of optra diesel to be introduced. What are the common niggles? I think it may be due for a suspension overhaul and need to check the condition too. Is it a good buy? Location is baroda, Gujarat
I just saw the vehicle today. Its in good shape and the owner seems genuine and has full service history.

The only issue is that there are quite few touch ups done to remove scratches. I owner says that only the bodywork has been done at local garages and rest all repairs at done at the A. S. S Only.
There's a little vibration felt at the steering at sudden movement and the gearbox is too notchy. I think the gearbox issue was sorted out in the recent models. Is it possible to carryout the mod at the service centre?

And the major issue which I found was the rust. There are little specks at some places which were later covered up by paint. I am worried whether it will last another 3 years or so. The tyres have around 30% life left. And the diesel clatter really was too much. Maybe because I am more used to petrols.

So mostly I'm concerned about the maintenance. Is it recommended?

Another option which I have come across is a 2009 civic run 61k km. With cng. 2 nd owner. Yet to check out the service records for the genuineness of the odo. Owner quoting 2.6 lakh.

I am confused. Bhpians may please advise.

The touch-up, rust, specks - I would walk away.

Exactly. The clatter is probably just fine. This happens to everyone who is more used to petrol.

In baroda.
I know I'm comparing two different things, but how's does the optra compare with the civic in highway performance? The power, ride and handling part?

I am planning to look for a used Liva in Bangalore. How much should a 2 year or a 3 year old Liva petrol cost? Is a 2-3 year old Liva petrol a good buy considering long term ownership?

2010 Facelifted Mercedes-Benz S350 done 18,000km for 22lac. Legit or potential scam? Price sounds too good to be true.

Dear Kailash
You can expect approx. 6.5-6.75 lacs for the same.
MSIL holds on the depreciation better.

Had you decided to sell in 2014(by say Nov/Dec), you could have expected about 30K more.

Hello NT,
A 2012 Liva 'G' should be available in the price range of around 4.5L. I am a Etios Diesel owner & I can vouch for the fact that the car can easily used for 10 years+.

Revards,
Varun

Hello D,
I think for a 2nd owner car run 76k, its not exactly VFM. An ideal price should be in the range of 17L.Also check for accident damage. 76k in 2.5 years is some serious miles.
Also check if it has a 4 speed AT or 5 Speed AT.
Regards,
Varun

Hello K,
A fair price for your Ertiga ZDi is around 6.75-7L if sold to a dealer & around 7.25L if you can find a private buyer.

Varun

Thanks Varun. I have checked the history and its a clean car nothing showed up. It has a 4 speed AT and the general condition looks good. Going to show it to a mechanic today and see what he thinks.

My Brother-in-law is looking at this option. Advise what we need to check with owner apart from service history

Make: Santro
Year: 2010
Odometer: 35,000

Asking Price is 2.3 Lakhs. The car has alloy wheels that look awesome. I will post a pic this weekend if I get to go home. The seller is in the same apartment so we can have a friendly chat.

One other worry that my Brother-in-law invoked was the fact that Santro is not in production anymore.

Thank you Varun. 4.5 lakhs for a 3 year old petrol Liva seems high! So, the resale value isn't as low as it is made out to be?
