I checked out the 2013 one with 44,000 kms. The car seems to be in good condition. However, the tyres do need a replacement. I offered 14L for the car but the dealer is stuck on 17. I'm hoping he'll negotiate down further.

Finally, did you get a CRV? Did you see any other vehicles after that ?

I've gone through this thread. Thank you to all the earlier replies/comments. Its been helpful. And nor for a very similar question.

2010 (end) Honda CRV 2.4MT - 60,000km, what's the going rate?

An acquaintance of is selling this car, its well kept and I know the guy kept it well, so pretty interested in taking it over from him. I thought that an offer of 6.5L that would be fair. He thinks its work 11L because of some online evaluator. Any inputs or yet better experience on this would be great. I need to give the guy an answer quick as he's ordering a new car and wants this one out before the new one comes.

What happened finally? I am thinking of either a CR-V or an outlander or an X-trail. Mileage is what is bugging me about the CR-V. What's it like on highways?

The vehicle was in good condition and I finally offered 7L as final with no regret. I didn't get the CR-V. Sad in a way, but actually in hind site I was very happy it didn't work out. I think it would have been a white elephant. This is a lovely crossover for India, a great compromise between a car, and able to handle some of our less good roads, has the power, creature comforts with a touch of luxury. The BUT's are (after talking to some Honda mechanics, and a friend that owns a preowned one)

The CR-V has close to no resale value, so once you buy it, just use it as best you can and expect the resale value to crash rapidly. Spare parts are expensive (as in Accord pricing) and being a slightly larger vehicle the spares also tend to we are out a little faster. Simple example is tyres, a new set will put you back approximately 60k, a clutch job 30k, insurance 30k, etc. So its a great vehicle, but it costs to keep it going. If you can handle the cost as part of running the vehicle just because you "need" it and would like to travel in a little more comfort and have a little fun, then by all means I'd say go for it great car.

In my case, I am happy I didn't end up owning the car, wouldn't have been able to justify the cost for the fun I'd get out of the car. So all in all: depends how much you'll be using it. This is pretty inconclusive, but I hope it gives you some direction. Good luck.

You have just outlined all the most valid points that everyone needs to consider when buying a used D-Segment vehicle. The sad bit is almost all of them are not manufactured here in India. Even simple wearable items like tyres; as far as I know tyre manufacturers only manufacture upto 15" tyres here in India, recently adding 16" tyres but only limited number of models. The costs you have outlined are characteristic for practically any D-Segment vehicle and this is what members mean by saying be sure you have got the money to maintain the car. Just because their resale value is low and you can buy them cheap, does not mean the maintenance costs have dipped any lower than their 20 lakh plus brand new price tag would suggest.

You have further summarised the D-segment used conundrum. Nice vehicles, but it costs to keep them going. Acquiring is one things and maintenance is an aspect aspect on its own. Cheers for your input.
