I'd advice you to look for a Vento instead. Vw's future seems to be better than Skoda.
Hello, Doge.

My used car dealer had called me up on 26th noon, to notify me of this European listing. The brown colored Skoda is in his shed. I rode her in city yesterday noon, and came back impressed with her driving characteristics. The price, untimely availability and unreliability of spare parts, along with non availability of a Skoda service center / well versed FNG in our city are the big deterrents in going ahead with this buy.

With a budget of 5 lac, the other used cars I've short listed are -
- Toyota Corolla (P)
- Honda Civic
- Ford Classic / Fiesta (2011-2014) (P).

Hello Everyone
Just wanted to know, What should be the ideal price(in Mumbai) for a 2013 Honda CRV (2.4L Model) which has clocked 43,000kms. I have been quoted a price of about 18L which i find to be too high.
Do let me know
Thanks!

Typically 50% of current on road price = Rs. 15L, add a slight premium if the car is really clean.

Hey guys,

Checked quite few pages but couldn't find any results. Do we have any facelifted Civic VAT for sale by any bhpians in Delhi. I have been searching with dealers and not sure if I can proceed with those cars.

I would suggest you to stay away from a used Skoda as they are out of warranty. Vento/rapid don't have any major reliability concerns especially the 1.6mpi but still, I don't think its wise to buy a used Skoda that will be out of warranty soon.
What are your priorities? Other cars you listed are also pretty good but each has its own USP!

Hello dear bhpians,

I'm stuck on a bit of a dilemma and wanted advice on this issue.

Thanks to a very chance visit and an convincing forum review i got a black Civic in 2008 1.8v manual.

I have had the pleasure of driving and maintaining it since that time.

No issues till the recent "regular" engine mount replacement and shock absorbers to be changed next week.

The recent 60k spending on the recent "regular civic maintenance" got me thinking of getting replaced with another car.

From local dealerships i have got quotations upto 3.5L. Listings here on classifieds reached 5.5 if i recall correctly.

My question is should i replace this or keep it till atleast 1,50,000 KMs?

You can keep the Civic for time eternal, it is an awesome piece of equipment, but the million dollar question is do you want to keep it?

Now is the time to sell, from now on resale will be pretty stagnant or might even head south-wards

I did check out the 2013 car. The car was maintained with all service records. But since it has run 44,000 kms, the tyres need a replacement. Considering that the car will be 3 years old in a month, I have quoted around 14 but the dealer didn't agree.

I am in agreement with your concerns on the Skoda reliability. So, have put those cars out of the list.

I've owned a diesel car for over 8 years and 1.3L kilometers. So now want to buy a big engine (1500-1800cc) petrol car. My requirements are a combination of some simple and some unique -

- Most important criteria : Should have better low end torque. Better enough to let the car crawl in 1st gear without accelerator input (Skoda Rapid like).
- Should seat 5 comfortably and must have a spacious boot.
- Safety features must be present.
- The car should not bottom out when 4 or 5 people along with luggage, are on board. If it has / it has a provision for installing engine and petrol tank guard, it'd be better.
- High ground clearance.
- Fuel economy is not a priority. Anything up to 14 would suffice.
- Price notwithstanding, spare parts should be easily available.

I think the Corolla fits these requirements easily. However it's very difficult to screen well maintained examples in the used car market here.

Hey,
First of all, I'd say stay away from the civic. Pretty poor low end and low clearance are some of the things you'd be knowing. Fiesta is a good buy but 5 may be a squeeze,not the most spacious car around. Altis would've been perfect but you mentioned that its hard to come by so I'll leave that there. Try these- SX4 Vvt and Linea tjet. They aren't the most fuel efficient though.

Hey Divyendu, Swift has some really excellent re-sale atleast here in Chandigarh. I was astonished when I came to know when early this year one of my cousin sold his 2010 Swift VDI with 80k on odometer for 3.75Lakhs. You should easily get anything around 4.3 - 4.5Lakhs considering yours is a ZDI and post face-lifted one. Maybe even more if you are able to strike a nice deal. Cheers.

Why ask? Just enjoy what you bought.
Do not spoil the fun by asking this. You will get quotes on both sides of the spectrum.
