Agree. Even though the seller has come down to 5.85. I don't even know if the car is all original or painted with/without replaced body panels. It just looks brand new.

Search for a showroom display car (pre-facelift) if you want the best deal.
With such a hot selling car, it is almost impossible to get such a car/deal.

Thanks but they are too overpriced and nothing in the range of 3.0-3.5 as suggested.

Agree. Majority of the listings are overpriced but it's typical marketplace. you can negotiate the listed price.

Default Re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

Hi fellow bhpians

Confused on a deal which I’m staring at. Some guidance will help.

I currently drive a Vento manual Petrol and looking for a second car.

Shortlisted a skoda Octavia tdi AT elegance 2015 model done 30k km with a first owner. He initially slated his price at 17L and has come down to 14L after going back and forth.

At 14L is this a good buy or should I just wait for the harrier AT / MG hector

Points to be considered
- I don’t drive more than 1500 km a month
- must be AT
- love the Octavia looks and sturdiness
- sunroof demanded by my 4 yo daughter
- will hold on to the car for 5-6 years atleast

That sounds way too high. Just for reference I checked out a 2015 Skoda Octavia tDI MT done 18000 kms today. The asking price is 9lacs and slightly negotiable. 14 lacs for a five year old Octavia is high IMHO. Try to bring it down to 9-10.5 lacs tops.

What would be the fair price for a 2013 EcoSport Titanium AT, single owner, run 50k kms in Bangalore?

If the car is in good shape - no suspension issue, no immediate expenses - then you can possibly look from 5.5 to 6 given it is manual and 6 year old now. I picked auto box @ 40k at a much higher price. Would recommend 6+ only when it is well maintained and looks the same from both in and out.



I have faced suspension issues in both the corollas and would recommend a thourough check at service center.

Please see my quoted post below. He bought it in March 2018.

He got the car inspected by a mechanic, changed all fluids, and added new set of tyres. Interior was not in good shape, we took it to 3M got it cleaned and detailed (exterior as well). He spent an additional ~ 50K for maintenance, tyres, and detailing after taking delivery.

Default Re: Skoda Octavia : Official Review

Hi guys need help. I am looking to buy a pre owned skoda Octavia. It's a 2015 Octavia ambient MT model. The car has done only 18000 kms till now. I checked the car and found a bit of noise when slotting it in the gears. So took it to skoda service centre to get a comprehensive check up done. The car has been timely serviced and everything else turned out to be fine except the noise which they attributed to fly wheel issue. They quoted 65000 rs approx cost of replacement of the flywheel. The car was a primary vehicle of the owner's wife and they are shifting abroad hence selling the car. The owner is asking 9lacs slightly negotiable and has even agreed to get the flywheel repaired at his own cost. Now I need help in, one deciding what offer should I make to the owner and second
, do you guys recommend me to buy this car. Your urgent help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

As a multiple Skoda owner I can only inform you that owning a Skoda demands a big stout heart. It will give you great pleasure and equally great grief. You will also need to have a spare vehicle during the long downtime that the car will make you experience.
C'mon, which car gives gearbox noises leading to a flywheel change at 18 k km. Autorickshaws and Altos do several times better.
Spares and assemblies are very competitively priced... only that they compete with two segments higher.

I completely agree with you. It’s the pleasure one derives out of driving such a car is where’s heart trumps the mind. So what would you suggest me in this case. Should I look elsewhere or consider this option.

This particular car with a problematic gearbox is highly avoidable.
To be honest, this 'driving pleasure' part is closely linked to happy ownership. If the car has unreliable components, it will make you pause before attempting a long drive, after the first bitter experience. One breakdown on the highway with family in tow will have you putting it on OLX in a hurry.
Unlike the Hondas and Toyotas, Skodas are nicer to own only when new.
The Skoda A$$ has a bit of a reputation as well !

I concur fully. Peace of mind while owning a car is very important. A friend of mine suggested me to get the noise checked by a reliable fng instead of blindly believing the skoda service centre guys. He is well versed with their notoriety. He owns a superb for the past nine years and has been visiting this particular garage for 6 years now for his car upkeep. His superb is in mint condition even after driven for 1.5 lac kms. Planning to get it checked and then take a final call.
