4.7 L is too much for a Ikon Flair I guess.If you can streach ur budget for another 30-50K you can get a new Ikon itself.

If you can get it for around 4 - 4.1 L then it is a good deal .

Hey 4.7lacs is way too much for a flair that is more than a year old.... 3.6lacs may too optimistic, but try to push it down to atleast 3.9-4 lacs... My uncle sold his flair (about 9-10 months old) last year for 4lacs (fully stock)..... Now that the market price of the flair has fallen, the price of the used one should follow suit...

First year depriciation is around 20%.
So, u should pay around a lakh lesser than the on-road price of a new car.

shalini, fords do not have great resale value. dont even think of a figure above 4L, i know it hurts, but thats what it is. the realistic price for you to buy/sell would be 3.5-3.75 at the most, that is if you can find someone for it. the dealers would offer you not more than 3-3.25l.

You may feel 3.7 is more than enough...But for me it will worth more than 4.5...OK

Thanks for all your feedback...

4.7 lakhs is on the higher side for a 1.3

A friend of mine picked up a 2005 1.6 NXT SXI for 4.4 lakhs and the car is in excellent condiotion with a 6 month warranty and 3 free services

Hope this helps

The on-road is around 5.3 for a new Flair...
I had enquired few months back for a 2003 Ikon Flair just to know the resale price...
The Automart guy was quoting 3.5 for 45K run model !!!

I think 4.2 - 4.4 would be realistic...considering that its 1 year old and also it's only run 9500 km's
