I have a Santro Xing Same variant as yours - with front Power Windows & Rear Wiper, 2003 July model with 56k on the ODO in very good condition.

I had it valued and the guy said 1.70 Lacs But he was the dealer, showed it elsewhere and they said 1.80 lacs.

So I am sure you should get 2.0 - 2.1 Lacs depending on the condition.

considering that I10has come in the market & Nano, the market for second hand cars have come down drastically
Just my 2 cents

I sold off my mother's May '04 Santro in Jan with 60k on the clock. It was the XO model with PS & A/c, with after market front power windows & an Alpine HU.

We traded it in at HMP while picking up the i10 & we got 2.0L for it.

Default Fiat Adventure 2002 How much?

I am thinking of selling my Palio Adventure. This is a July 2002 model (one of the first ones) absolutely stock apart from a K&N drop in replacement air filter & an FFE. No dents on the body and the interiors are in good condition (regularly dry cleaned etc). The car has run about 80K kms, needs a change of tyres in the next 3-4K kms. No other expense required on the vehicle.

Any ideas on how much I could sell it for?

What price will one get for the following if it is a private sale?

1. Chennai based TN Reg Tata Indica Diesel DLG Turbo V2. Bought in April 2006. Run about 13000 odd km. Driven only by my Dad and looked after very carefully by him. No major extra fittings etc except Grey Sunfilm, Beige Non leather Seat covers, Pioneer CD/MP3 player with remote, 2 Pioneer Speakers in Front and 2 Blaupunkt speakers at rear. Full service history available. Car colour bright red - wheel rims painted white.

2.Bangalore based KA reg Maruti Suzuki Lxi Swift. Slightly modified to look like a Vxi with Black A and B Pillars. Bought in September 2006. Done about 10300 km. Driven by me. No major extra fittings except the addition of a K&N Replacement Air Filter, Swift left side wing mirror, Sunfilm, Sony MP3/ CD/ ipod compatible system with remote and 2 speakers at rear. Full service history available.Car colour Bright Red -wheel rims painted white.

used Bolero's either Sportz or the GLX version of 2005 vintage usually sell for between 3.4- 4 lacs. If you are able to spend 4 lacs you will get a very well kept Bolero with reasonable mileage on the odo which could have been purchased by its first owner in Mid 2005 or so. These cars will have the XD3PU engine. No turbo. Not as noisy and lorry like as the new DI engines. This engine develops about 68BHP and is a nice engine, useful in the hills etc and for a little light off these jeeps can peacefully chug along for a 100K kms on the odo - no trouble at all.

Hi Harsha,

Did you pick your Accent from a used car dealer? I am looking for a used Accent/Viva/Skoda. Can you suggest any good used car dealer in Bangalore?
I have been looking for quite a while but unable to find a car !!

Hi Deadguy,
I did not buy my car through a dealer. In fact, i would suggest that you also avoid used car dealers because they hike up the price like hell! they really do! Besides, there are worse things they can do. Read Tbhp thoroughly to find out what you need to check etc.
Just be patient and look around. If you get only weekends to hunt, keep a time frame of at least a month. then you will get a good car. Used car prices in Bangalore are higher than other cities, but i guess we have to live with it.
Search the net, free ads and ad mag! Do let me know if you need any help.
Go for the Skoda if your budget permits. you get the best deals in that segment!

why not go to New Cars, Used Cars, Buy Cars, Sell Cars, New Car Prices, Used Car Prices - India and check out the rates they give?
Since it is from truevalue, you might have to pay a few thousand extra but try and bargain it down to what carwale says.

Hi Guys,
a friend and I have seen a Ford Fiesta 1.4 EXi 2006 model in bangalore. the dealer says the vehicle has done only 1300 kms in 2 years since the owner is abroad most of the time.
the vehicle drives and looks good. i am yet to get it checked by a mechanic. the dealer is quoting 4.5 lakhs. he is willing to show us the service manual which does not have a single free service entry in it. do you think the price is good and the vehicle is worth going in for? what could be the catch? the body looks free from dents.
i noticed that the battery was not an exide or an amaron. what is the oem in a fiesta? it might have been changed due to the scant usage. should i get the vehicle checked at a ford dealer itself or a private mechanic? also, what fuel efficiency can be expected from the car?
This is for a close pal of mine but i am apprehensive because i do not trust dealers much!
