Default re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

Hi All

I am considering buying a used sedan and have short listing the following cars in Bangalore -

1. September 2014 Sunny XV D with Safety Option, run 46K KMS, single owner. Still has 2 years Extended Warranty. Well Maintained car with regular Bangalore scratches. Had negotiated for 5.75 Lakhs. But when I checked the history, got to know that there was an accident at 23K KMS and headlights, front bumper and Front LH door was changed. I am still interested in the car, but don't want to give the same price and want to offer a new price. What should be the price.?

2. August 2012 Verna SX D, run 62K KMS, single owner. Dealer is asking for 6 lakhs but negotiable. Dealer is giving a 6 months warranty, including transfer of ownership and full service before delivery. Car is in good Condition, but only thing bothering me that the plastic engine cover is missing. Which means some kind of engine work has been done. Hyundai dint give me the service history, so have asked the dealer to provide full history. What should be my offer price?

3. September 2012 Verna SX D, run 42K KMS, single owner. Car is in good condition except for lot scratches. Front bumper is damaged. Asking price is 6.50 Lahks negotiable. The owner himself told me that front bumper and back bumper has been repainted twice. Should I go ahead with it ?

Regards

None of the three if you have accident history that requires changing of parts, unless you negotiate for far cheaper.

Find a competent mechanic and pay him to appraise the cars and what work was done / will need to be done before you buy any of these.

If it was only body damage and not chassis bends etc the sunny is currently your best bet assuming the parts were replaced rather than tinkered.

Thanks. Once I finalize the car, I am planning to take car to respective Authorized Service Center and as well as an independent mechanic.

The headlights, Front Bumper and Front LH door was replaced. I saw the bills and there is no other dent removal, bend or chassis work done.

It is almost as good as new then assuming the fit and finish of the replaced parts is as good as the original. You can go ahead with it but of course negotiate down a bit citing "accident vehicle"

But Sir, 5.75 lakhs for a car that hardly sells? Please do a bit of research so as to what should be an ideal price for a used Sunny

It is a good car mechanically. Yes the resale price can certainly be adjusted down citing low resale value of the sunny and previous accident history.

Yes exactly my point. Good car, but unfortunately horrible prices in the used car market. That's why asked him to do a bit of more research on the prices front

Agree, Sunny does not seem like value for money at this point. The Verna Ds seem better

Not sure the older Verna's came with plastic cover. You may want to check that.
The one that has run 42k kms seems a better bet as the turbos usually last 70k-80k kms and that would be a big expense on the 62k run Verna. The Sep 2012 Verna seems good but you may want to negotiate prices a bit further

The car is in excellent condition and meticulously maintained, except for the accident. I know I was paying a bit more, but I dint mind for a well maintained car with extended warranty. Now have to quote a new price considering the accident and it will be far less then the original quote

Yes, even I am leaning towards Verna D considering the service center, spares, etc.

Verna 1.6 D 2012 did come with a engine cover and the owner has lost it i believe.. Probably will stay away from this car.

I sold my november 2015 New Figo 1.5 Titanium Plus run 37500 kms for 5 lakhs to a dealer in Coimbatore. The car was white colour and has extended warranty till November 2018. Is this a fair price.

He is looking for Diesel sedan and will be using it for min. 2-3 years and his max budget is 2.5 to 2.75 lacs. Which one to go for ? Any suggestions will be helpful.

Go for the Optra's if and only if you have the time and a way to source the spares, & can get it serviced in a neighborhood garage. Best price would be anything under 2.5 Lakhs.

The Verna's will have better support for spares, no doubt on that. But neither of them seem to be with genuine odo.

Forget both of them, find a used diesel hatch such as a Figo, or a used smaller sedan like an Amaze, Swift Dzire etc for your price range. You will get more recent year's models, not cars with tampered odo which might be two or three thousand km away from requiring a new turbo etc expensive repairs.

I sold it to a dealer, since I didn't any serious enquiry through online ads. What would have been the correct price.
