Default re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

Hi experts, need your opinion on this.

Came across this whatsapp msg from my friend wherein a Creta is for sale (Bangalore).The details are Hyundai Creta/Petrol/Sx Plus/10000 kms/No accidents/good condition/Sep 2017 (pre-facelift version)/owner moving out of country. What is a good price for this vehicle?

Evaluation price -
OBV - 11.7-12.2 Lakhs
Carwale - 11.9.12.8

Also, being in Bangalore, if it better to go for a Automatic Creta (facelifted version) from showroom. I dont need a Diesel since my running is low. I currently drive a 2011 Diesel Figo (Remapped) and trying to find a good upgrade. i was confused between the Creta (Petrol) and Nexon (Diesel) which were definitely in my range. For now i had dropped the plan and was going to continue with the Figo for another 6-8 months and then eventually get hold of the Tata Harrier (5 seater) in second quarter of next year.

But the above classified has put me into a fix again. if i get the Creta for 11-11.5 Lacs, I am getting a Nearly new Creta for the price of a Diesel Nexon. Only thing missing is an Auto tranny. would like to hear your opinions on what should i be doing.

Options:
1. Pick up the Creta mentioned in the classified, at a decent price (need a good quote to give to the seller)
2. Continue with Figo and pick up Tata Harrier next Year (may get delayed into Q3 of next year as well)
3. Pick up a brand new Petrol Creta (Auto) and forget about upgrading for the next 3-4 years.

As you must have guessed, the classified has confused me. hence, apologies if this post comes across as messed up.

Note: what is the mileage of the Petrol Creta?

Dears,
Need some quick inputs. Due to a sudden itch for a fast car, I started looking for skoda Laura tsi's in Chennai. However, petrol ones are rare to come by it seems. Came across a MH registered 2009 Laura tsi which is up for sale. From the photos, the car looks well maintained and has done around 70000 kms. Upon checking with the owner, he said that he didn't got the noc from TN RTO. He quoted an initial price of 3.6L and after first round of negotiation, it's hovering at 3L now. I'm yet to see the car as the location is 250 kms away from Chennai. Now, below are my queries.
1.Is this a worthy option?
2.What are the immediate expenses I should be looking for if I'm buying this car
3. Is it possible to do name transfer of the car without getting noc?
4. If noc is mandatory, how much to shell out for that?
5. If everything goes well, what will be the best price to settle the deal?
This car will be use for weekend runabouts and highway trips which comes to a total of 1000 kms per month max.
Have to respond to the owner within tomorrow.

You need a NOC from the RTO in Maharashtra

Then you need to re register the car in TN by paying pro rata road tax on the car.

It will take months. Avoid.

Thanks hserus for the quick response. Never know that the noc process needs to be done at the source state. On the other hand, what are the difficulties in using the car as such without getting noc? Sorry if I sounded silly. Just curious to know.

The car can't be transferred in your name without the NOC.

If you drive the car without name transfer and the RC is in another guys name you can be hauled up for vehicle theft the first time a cop checks your papers at a traffic stop.

Will also take the car to Toyota Service station for a check, hope nothing comes up.
Apologies for quoting myself, the car was sold before I got around to make an offer. Guess, that's what happens to cars that are in such fine nick. Lesson learnt! Did a drive a couple of 2012 VL AT's but they did not meet my expectation. Putting the car buying thing on hold for a short while, have decided to up my budget and go for 2014-15 model year 11th Gen Corolla Altis.

Cheers

Honda City VMT Sunroof March 2013 registration at Navi Mumbai. The car has done 76k kms genuine as verified from the service records. First owner car and a well maintained one. What should be a fair price to pay for this? Seller is unwilling to go below 5.5L no matter what.

Various used car evaluation tools show an average price range of 5.25L to 5.45L. Also the current insurance IDV is 4.75L, any red flags here?

I have to get back to him with a Yes or No by tomorrow afternoon. Any help on this would be appreciated.

3.2 or so would be fair. You need to check if the 80k service has been done or not, that's expensive. Also the tyres and battery will probably need changing.

If the tyres and battery don't need immediate changing, the clutch etc are ok and it's in a condition to just drive for the next 10k or more km after maybe a lubes and oil change, go ahead and pay it.

When you can get a diesel Laura 2010 models for 4 lakhs, I think 3.5 lakhs for a 10 year old octavia petrol looks too costly.

I know it's hard to put a price on a Gypsy, but what could be the right price for this?
