Re: ARTICLE: How to buy a *USED* Car in India

I'm off topic here. Moderators please excuse.

I am having a diesel Ford Freestyle 2020 BS6 Titanium plus model. Despite being a good car I would like to sell it because of recurring DPF issue. I live in a hilly area where drive to clean is not a solution.

Car is 03 years old and has done about 19000 kms.Condition is good with no issues so far.

How much should I expect? It cost me about 8.5 lac (on road) in 2020.

Re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

What's a good price for a 2021 Jan registered Skoda VRS245? Car has had 1 owner, 20k odd mileage. It should be under Skoda warranty till Jan 2024. The dealer is quoting 33L.

I believe it should be between 29-31L depending on the condition.

Which state is it from? If GJ registered, white or red, be extra careful on the condition.

That car was apparently sold earlier, but the loan did not go through for the buyer, as per the dealer. Another dealer also said it was a demo car (could be incorrect).

The road tax would also be paid for 5 years, if you are not planning to re register.

Get the car checked thoroughly if you do go ahead.

The asking price is 2 lakh too high in my view. You should negotiate this down to at least 10 lakh.

Thanks for your suggestion. Most 2019 Rapid 1.5TDI with 40k kms on odometer are priced 10-11 lakhs online. The one I'm interested was monte carlo version. But 12 lakhs looked too much to me too. Adding to that Skoda Rapid had a price cut by up to Rs. 1.58 lakh in November 2019. I will try to negotiate. But difference of 2lakhs is too high to negotiate

What is the quoted price? Lower variants of hot sellers like the Creta way overpriced in the used car market to make sense. Instead of paying over 7 lakhs for a bare bones car that costed 11 lakhs when new, my advice would be to add a couple of lakhs more and look for a good deal on 14-15 lakh rupee SX variants.

I was in the market for a VRS. Had seen two 245’s from GJ which were accidental.

You are right, as per WB rules, it has road tax paid for 5 years, this is not necessarily a problem since I would need to re-register in KA anyway. I checked with Skoda and it looks fine. 3 services including 1 sun roof change, it has factory warranty currently, extended warranty can be availed.

Getting the car checked thoroughly is what I am struggling as I am in Blr. I don't want to fly to Calcutta without someone at least having a good look at it first. I wish there was some kind of service which was offered for a remote vehicle checkup by a certified mechanic. I asked Skoda in Calcutta but they can't help.
