Question How much to pay for 02/03 WagonR/Santro

My cousin is looking to buy a cheap second hand car - He already has a diesel(Scorpio) so he's looking for a petrol which will be fitted with an authorised AutoLPG kit.

How much would should he expect to pay for a 02/03 Wagon R or Santro and how much would the kit cost on top ?

Should we also look at truevalue (in case of the Wagon R) or look for a private seller ?

thanks

WagonR has lower resale value than Santro. Also having a large boot, it makes sense to put LPG on wagonr (not to forget santro is bumpy at rear so LPG kit may take some punishment).

Go for wagonr
My guess, around 2-2.5k

In Bombay , Wagon R has higher resale than the Santro and thats for sure

Regarding market rates
2001 WagonR LX == 2 laks
LXI==2.12
VXI== 2.25

2002 WagonR LX == 2.25 laks
LXI==2.4
VXI== 2.5

and so on

FOr the santro, minus 10k from the WagonR figures.

hmm.. thats interesting.. because here in Delhi, as far as i have known.. wagonr has a lower resale value than the Santro...

and just one more piece of advice.. dont ever go for the LX model.. you will regret its steering response. LXi with EPS is great value for money. It feels and drives like a toy car with EPS.

and sorry for the typo.. i meant 2-2.5L..

thanks for the help, I'll recommend the Lxi model - of the Wagon R - and I suppose that they'd prefer a Maruti since they've moved out to the middle of nowhere.

but should I look at Truevalue or not - any warranty they give will definitely be nullified by fitting a gas kit.

and btw , how much would an lpg kit cost (an approved one)

thanks

Well if the warranty is going to be annuled, then there isn't much point in going for true value. you'll just end up paying a significantly higher price for no reason. So its better to source the car privately.
