Default How much for 2005 Honda City GXI CVT

Car: Honda City Color: Maroon Model: Gxi CVT Year of Purchase: 2005 Number of Km driven till date: 13.5 KM Features:Fully loaded.

I am planning to go look at this vehicle this weekend. The reason for sale is that the owner has gone abroad. It was used for 8 months and since its been in garage. He is expecting 7L. I'll have to check what fully loaded means

What price can I pay for this? Please advise. Thank you.

Not more then 6.5L IMHO. The new version ZX has been launched after the model you are looking at.

6-6.5 wold be an ideal price but its a no brainer to quote price without looking at the car.

Only 13.5 kms in 8 months! Damn the owner must have had a really short commute

Anyways I think 6.5-6.75 would be a good price for this car.

I am amazed at the prices people pay for a used NHC. It gives decent mileage sure and arguably good looking, but what else?
Safety absolutely sucks; power sucks; no ABS as option too, no alloys on GXi too,

Somebody explain to me what are folks paying for?
(snob value is awesome I agree)

In terms of safety - yes, it crumples, but look at the passenger cell, that is rigid and intact. Go to a honda body shop and you can see many a story.

Power - it is a good City car, it can cope with the load, but it is no sprinter.

What to people pay for - A no hassle, low maintenance, smooth refined city run about with nice interiors. Agree with you on the ABS part though

Ajmat, I would tend to think it depends actually on the point of impact....TOI carried a story on a bus hitting a NHC the other day, pics are from the other side but the damage to the cabin looks pretty serious to me -


Luckily, the car was parked & there was no one inside.

True, we can only design for most common incidents like offset frontals, rear end shunts and moderate side collisions. No car is 100% safe but some are safer than others. That bus was travelling at 60+ when it hit the Honda. If we plan for all that, we would be driving tanks

We can never plan for that - my point was a little different. There is a general perception that the passenger cabin of the Honda City is almost impregnable whereas the rest of the body is all about crumple zones & safety - all I'm saying is that as far as the passenger cabin is concerned, I think its as safe (or "unsafe") as any other car in the segment.........

Phew!!! That car looks like a crumpled coffee cup. An apt example for the saying "between a rock and a hard place".

But then, any other car in its place would have ended up the same way.

Yeah the picture is scary it true but it could have happened to any other car but the beauty of modren cars is such that even after such crashes most of the time people just come out un harmed and i have seen 3-4 such incidents in india you cant absolutely judge how safe a car is Just by looking at it.

Some times the car crashes and the owner is absolutely fine and some times the owner even dies and nothing happen to the car so what would one call a safe car where the owner lives or the car
