You are better off taking delivery of a spanking new scross 1.6

PS- that's the issue with Maruti's. They never make financial sense for the buyer in the used car market.
you'd anticipate 12..13k running in a year, within six months is pushing it a bit but I am sure bhpians who drive bangalore to delhi etc on a whim might easily run it up . Or taxi drivers might do it too so check on that..

You can surely knock down the price by a lakh or more.

Brothers I was looking for a Corolla Altis & have come across a 1st owner, 2012 CVT model 60,000 kms driven for 9 lakh asking price.

Would you recommend the purchase at this price?

Considering the new Corolla price this seems like a steal. But, in real market conditions it will consistently depreciate. 9 lakhs is very high, may be 7 tops, if it is in great condition.

Hi guys,

I wanted some informed opinions for a deal that I'm seriously contemplating going through with in the coming few days.

I'm looking for a fun to drive daily use car which is not heavy on the pocket (tall order, I know)

After much searching, I came across a beautifully kept November 2012 Civic 1.8 Mt with sunroof edition (46,000Kms.) Negotiations started at 6.45 Lakh and have managed to bring it down till 5.85 Lakhs as Im paying the amount upfront.

Is this a good price?
Also does anyone know any trusted mechanic in Mumbai who can come along with me to check out the car? Preferably around Bandra (W)

Hello everyone,

I am planning on buying a used car from a state different from my state of current residence. The car in question does not have any insurance. How should I go about getting 3rd party insurance for this car should I decide to buy it? And are there any other things I should keep an eye out for?

Dear BHPian,

There are several spelling & grammatical errors in your posts. This negatively affects the forum experience for other readers.

Kindly ensure that you proof-read your posts prior to submission. Also, it would be a good idea to use a spell-checker.

Just getting the registration transferred and then tax from the home state refunded is a royal pain and takes months. Read the tbhp thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...efund-etc.html (Moving a car between States - Road tax, refund etc.)

Baleno I am assuming old sedan Baleno, then it is good contender but very old now. Corolla is fast but may not be fun to drive. Disclaimer :I have not driven any of the above cars but as per general feedback of people.

You can also consider Linea Tjet if FIAT is not in your negative list. It's maintenance shall not be cheap like Maruti but not costly like Volkswagen group as per TeamBhp feedback.
There are couple of used available on olx under 3 lakh ranging from 2009-2011 models. Servicing can be carried out at RS Motors kandivali (as per reports on this forum they are competent and experienced in FIAT) if not in ASC.

Thank you! I'll bargain hard to bring it down to that price.

I am considering a used Laura 1.8 TSI Manual Transmission for purchase.
Any special points/considerations that I need to keep in mind?

Thanks in advance.

Whats the general price range of an used Hardtop Gypsy 1.3 Mpfi vehicle in Bangalore?
Next is such a vehicle worth buying brand new instead?
I like stock vehicles. Excessive mods are off putting.

What's happening Shankar, coming back to Gypsy! Well as much I know you here, you will not like the used ones. Or else buy one from Police auction (better condition as compared to Army ones and you can buy singles), and rebuild it. I don't think it's worth buying new.

How does one get to the Police Auction?
There are a few used ones on Gaadi.com and Droom Cars and Car Trade and Carwale. Some look good and honest. Some don't.

Saying that, knowing myself, if I succumb to this madness I may just go along and plonk 50K and book a new one.

Just because I love the Gypsy King HardTop.

And just because I feel like.
