Is Ford Figo Diesel ZXi, 2013 model, run 12K km in Bangalore @ 3.8L a good price? Owner wants to go for a new bigger car. The back bumper has some issues & some squeaks (not rattles), which he claims can be fixed.

Is it a good buy? Need feedback today to finalize it asap. Any other recommendation will be helpful. Thanks.

PS: Been checking on a used car for last 2 weekends now as I need a car now urgently & don't want to plonk in a huge amount of money for a new one immediately. Its too time consuming & frustrating with dealers posting ads as individuals. This was one of the decent ones of the lot.

It would be around 1.5 lakhs. Before buying please take the vehicle to Maruti and tell them to give a estimate.

This reminds me that a colleagues's Jag used to need new tyres every 15k miles. Explanation provided by the dealer was high torque and his aggressive driving style. So, if someone is spinning the wheels for fun, front tyres on FWD could wear out fast.

Hi folks
Just had a dilemma
I have narrowed down my search for a second hand car to two models.
The I10 and the police.

Which one would be the car to go for considering that I'm looking for a petrol that will do about 3500kms annualy

Any other cars I should look for in the 3-4 lakhs range.

I am a 6footer so cars like the alto or kid don't cut it for me

Thanks in advance

The i10 should be decent for you, considering the mileage and your size. Have you looked at the rest of the Maruti hatch stable? And Ford as well?
However, just for kicks I'd love to see you go for the "police". 3-4 lacs, you say?

Swift with CH number still fetches quite a buck and dealers always quote peanuts. It's a bread and butter car for used car dealers.
It is wise to seek an individual buyer. By omitting a dealer, you make a win-win situation.

True but I first tried selling to direct individuals who had weird payment terms. lol Also their offers were around 4 lakh only as the car is more than 4 years old and required some denting and stuff.

Have my eyes on buying a used Audi S4, November 2013 and 44,000kms driven. Seems to be a well maintained car.

I assume like other Audi's, the two year warranty has already expired. The high mileage is the only concern for me as I'm looking at reliability issues over the next few years or the longer term.

What would be a decent price for me to buy that car and any other inputs guys?

Hello all,
I am thinking of replacing my ageing Santro June 2005 model, 100k run, with a newer second hand car. The santro is still going strong but is showing its age. It is in fair condition with scratched on almost all panels thanks to Delhi traffic and artistic neighborhood children. The tyres have max 10k left in them. The engine is still good and I have serviced it on time from outside using new engine oil, Oil filter and air filter every 5k kms. Only one claim made till date which was to replace the shattered rear window which was broken on my parked car when a truck's tyre burst in near vicinity. (2 other cars also had their windows shattered).

How much can I expect it to fetch me?

My plan is use the money from Santro and add another 1.5-2 Lacs and go for a newer model i10, WagonR. Open to both Petrol and Diesel. Looking only for hatchbacks as parking is a huge problem.

Need advise on what should I be expecting and what are the options for a new purchase.

I am scared of being fleeced from both sides (less amount while selling and high amount while buyin) if I approach a car dealer with my situation. Kindly help.

Santro Xing, 11th year running, with 1 lac+ km on the odo is not really a hot cake in the used car market. If your car is maintained exceptionally well and you are able to find a genuine buyer yourself, 1.25 lac should be your best expectation. I would suggest you keep 1 lac as a realistic expectation. Used car dealers won't offer anything more than 60-70k, if not lesser.

Regrading your replacement options, the i10 is mechanically same as a Santro, except if you plan to get the 1.2 Kappa engined versions. Similarly, I don't see the logic in replacing a Santro with a used WagonR either. You should be looking to upgrade to the Swift/Figo/Polo segment, don't you think. But with a 1+2=3 lac budget, you'll have to compromise heavily - either go for a really old or high mileage car!

Better option would be to hold onto your Santro for another 2-3 years, improve your budget for the next car and then go for a new B2 segment hatch, especially since you tend to keep your car for long periods.

Do take a look at our Repair vs Replace thread, and ask yourself whether you really 'need' to replace your Santro. Hope this helps!

I have a 2000 June model of a Qualis - GS. It has the dual ac and is an 8 seater. It has a fair share of dents on most panels, but nothing ugly. Am wondering whether to sell or repaint. Have had this dilemma in the past but now the urge is more. Wondering what I can expect if I sell it. It has alloys and one year old tyres. Have done 133K on the odo and is mainly driven by my wife. We got it recertified recently as it crossed 15 years.

I also have a 9 year old swift zxi petrol. It has 3 year old Michelins and has a total of 40K on the ODO. Has some rust on one of the doors, else the condition is good and is mainly used for my office commute. I dont mind swapping this if the expected sell price is more.

As per my opinion, both will sell for 2 lakhs each. The good thing is that you would not have to undergo too much of a hassle to sell the vehicles since they are both in demand in the second hand market. 2 lakhs means the lowest price you can expect to sell them at as per me
