Seems to be a decent deal. Same car goes for 3.2 to 3.5 here in Delhi. So 4 lacs shoul be decent for BLR. Also what I have observed is that Honda City has very high resale compared to other cars in the segment and if the car is neat it doesn't stay in the market for a very long time.

True Value is obviously not offering the true value of your car to you, per se. Agreed that Tata cars usually fetch a low resale value, but there are genuine buyers who love the spaciousness and robustness (read abuse firendly) nature of Tata cars and are ready to pay a good price. Just to give you an idea, I sold my July 2004 Indica DLX in Jan 2015 i.e. after 10.5 years and 1.51 lakh kms and it fetched me 1.15 lakh, I could have easily got 1.25 lakh, but since it was sold to one of my relatives I as quite happy with the deal. Your car has seen very little running on the odo in the last 8-9 years of its existence and could easily fetch you upwards of 1.4 lakh rupees. I would suggest check the valuation on carwale or TBHP and accordingly quote a price on OLX. I am sure your would be swarmed by buyers.

I understand what you're saying, which is why I was quite shocked at the valuation from TureValue.

The car essentially has not run much as my father is retired and the car has largely been used to pick up and drop the grandkids to school apart from his monthly socializing with his coursemates (Noida to Race Course) and the odd long distance to the airport and back if anyone is traveling.

The car is mechanically sound and the DICOR engine is unique. I also recently got the car cleared up in terms of getting the engine checked and the basics (like a seat cover, leather cover for the steering wheel, etc.) done.

Dont ever trust truevalue or other dealers. I am having a nano which is 3 months old and the year end offers tempted me to upgrade. Visited a true value dealer and they quoted an abysmal 1 lakh for my 3 month nano!!

Try to sell it via OLX or carwale. You should get a good deal.

Hi Friends,

Greetings to all.

I am finalising a deal on a March 2014 make Rapid Elegance (bought by the original owner in October 2014) with 8340kms on the ODO from an IT executive who is relocating to US. The color of car is Black. The price I am paying is Rs.8.40 lakhs. I am dealing with the Owner directly. Is it an OK deal for me? The car was serviced in October 2015.

Your views will help.

Thanks.

I forgot to mention that it is a Diesel 1.6 TDI.

Question re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread. (Online tool : Page 1)

I'm looking to buy used Linea t-jet. I came across a sample recently. Following are the details.

- Linea t-jet Dynamic (Oceanic blue color)
- Manufactured in Jan 2014. Registered Apr 2014
- This is the old model (not the latest revamped one)
- On SBI loan
- Owner selling it as he is moving abroad

Points in favor:
1. One year two months warranty still remaining
2. Verified service history
3. Unclaimed valid insurance
4. Drives fine. Engine noise, suspensions, wheel alignment ok. Brakes work as expected.
5. 20k km genuine running

Points not in favor:
1. Some leakage is seen near turbo charger. Owner was unaware of it.
2. Rear bumper repainted at Fiat SS. One tail lamp replaced. Reason given was as damage while reversing.
3. Left rear door and area behind that repainted at a local shop. Very poor finish. Reason given was neighbors car door keeps hitting that area.
4. Some scratches on bonnet. Apparently some village kid scratch-signed his name on the bonnet.
5. Ill maintained interiors. Coffee/cold-drink spills on floor carpet, door panels and fabric seats. Empty plastic glasses lying around on the floor. Reason given was his young kid eating in the car.
6. Though it may not matter much, a couple of stickers Mobil 1 racing and 'BMW' pasted on the car.

Owner expecting 5.8L.

What do you think about this deal?

My plan was to get it at real low price (if owner agrees that is) and get the interior professionally cleaned, door/bonnet repainted again.

What is worrying is:
1. Leakage near turbo. Right now I'm totally clueless about its severity. Should I rely on the warranty for it? Refer to the attached image (image courtesy T-BHP thread (Quick First Drive: Fiat Linea 1.4 T-JET)). The area marked in red circles was covered in oil like liquid.
2. Owner didn't mention about the repaint-jobs upfront when asked about any accidents. Only after thorough inspection, I found it out. Now I'm skeptical that the owner might be hiding some other stuff which I haven't discovered yet.

Totally confused. Please suggest if this deal is worth at all and if it is, what should be the price.

The owner is not upfront about scratches etc - and he is clearly a person who doesnt maintain the interiors of his car, isn't aware about engine issues, won't transparently tell you about paint jobs etc. Just walk away from the deal.

Hi - what is the current onroad price for the same model after all discounts ? Please note that the buyer would have got a good discount since he purchased a 6 month old car. So be clear on how much you bargain ( + the added image around VW cars recently ). I would ask for ATLEAST a 30-35% depreciation on the NET NEW CAR price. Are you getting that ? Needless to say, please do all other due diligence in terms of checking tyre condition, service history, any visible accidental work etc

A person who doesn't bother about the interiors wouldn't bother about anything else in the car. I say walk away - there can be issues that may crop after 2 months. If the turbo is screwed, you are looking at some FAT bills.

How much would a 2008 325i with 22,000 on odo fetch in Bangalore? I am being offered one for 14.5? Is it a fair price?

Cannot comment on the price, but would you want to risk putting 14 large on an 8 year old beemer, irrespective of what the odo reads?

It is way too much, i had almost bought one in Feb 2013, it was 2008 done only 8000 on odo, it even had new car feel to it and negotiated price was 14.5. You should offer him 8.5 for it.

I am planning to buy a used car. At present I am driving an i10 1.2, which will continue to be used for driving within the city. I want a bigger and stronger car for occasional pleasure trips. Can't afford a new one at this time and hence planning for a used one. I am looking for a pure fun to drive car which should also be reliable. My budget is about Rs 2 lakhs. Additional 50K for initial service expenses. The two cars that come to my mind are SX4 and old Fiesta, and it doesn't seem difficult to find a good one within my budget, in Delhi. But then I want opinions about these two cars and if any other cars can be included in my search list. Inputs solicited.
