If the buyer genuinely believes it has done only 9K kms and is in spanking condition. Then you may get at least 2.4L.

Of course, if you go to true value, they will give you a quote of 1.8L or lower

I checked with True Value in chennai [Popular] during my last month service and they quoted 2.6Lac. I bought this from Popular and its serviced by them. So, possibly they know the vehicle.

So, seems that is the market value for this. Thanks.

Then possibly I think I should just give it there during next visit to Chennai.

I am also checking for LTT through Driving school. Let me see if thats reasonable, then i would go for that.

My 2005 Zen with 35000 on the ODO was evaluated by True Value and they quoted 200,000 INR which I thought was a good deal. 2.6 is way too good.

Thats an amazing price. I think someone from true value wants to keep it for himself otherwise these folks usually keep a 20k-25K margin.

So if you already have decided to dispose the car, take that offer asap!

if you could try to get a seller other than dealer then you should get a better price atleast 2.8L . Assuming that the odometer readings are genuine

True value will always pay you less. my friend got a mid-2004 LXI 30000kms with all accessories and ICE for 2.5L from True Value.

Default BalenoVxi 2006 @ 4.9L a good buy ?

My friend has been offered a single-owner 2006 Baleno Vxi (Kerala regn) for 4.9Lacs and wonders if it is a good price. The car has run 28000 kms and belongs to his friend's friend and is a pretty clean vehicle overall.
The current owner is selling it as he wants to get an SX4.

What do you used-car experts think about this deal ?

Note : A new BalenoVxi was like 6.5lakhs on-road at Chennai in 2006. At that time, road taxes being lesser by a substantial amount in Kerala compared to the tax in Chennai, I am assuming it would have cost the current owner around 6.35 to 6.4 lakhs on-road.

28000kms in a year or so! I think 4.9l is a bit high for the car. Nevertheless if your friend has faith in his friend, no harm in going for it.

I also thought that way initially. But then if it is a Jan 2006 car (not sure of the month), then it is almost 2 years old and 28K kms seems somewhat OK for 2 years of ownership.

Thanks for the price, CrazyDriver. So a depreciation of 1.6 lakhs in 2 years. Does it sound like a good deal ?

we are getting balenos 2006 model for 4.2 lakh in alleppey.no way its a deal as the model is out of production.i had a 2000 model one which sold for 9 lakh at that time for 3.5 lakh.60000 on odo and perfect.so 4.9 is a bit tooo high.4.25-4.5 would be ok depending on the condition.

Another point is the huge discounts that were available for Balenos, dont pay more than 4 lacs.

If you can stretch, go in for a new SX4.
