Default Re: Please Advice On This Pre Owned Fortuner

A good fact is that it is not a NCR registration. Usually, these SUV's are not owner driven. Employed drivers do not handle them very well in most cases. Please check out as to whether it was owner driven?'The 84,000 km on odo is OK. Please check the year and month of the tyre manufacture for each tyre, including stepney and this may give some clues about it's use. Also, please check the driver's seat for wear and tear vis a vis the front passenger seat. The tyres (wear and tear pattern) and wheel rims give good clues of good and bad use.

Introduced in 2009, and thereafter with some additonal features/ options incl auto transmission wef 2012, this is the first generation Fortuner (in India). The second generation Fortuner (of 2015) came along in India November 2016. Hence, as the model is already one generation old and as the newer model has already done three years (half life), you could bargain further for the price. And these companies make available spares for a limited number of years (it should be 10 after the model's discontinuation) but many don't adhere to the norm.

Please take the vehicle to skoda service centre, pay some money, they will check in and out.
Also if any known mechanic is there, show him the car.

Also check
a. any insurance claimed & depending on the age of the car, enough NCB should be visible.
b. suspension.
c. tyres/spare wheel
d. Service Records (call skoda helpline, give the car number, they should help)

Do dealers allow this? The ones I met don't even give a proper test drive.

My father's colleague, and close family friend, is selling his 2009 Maruti Alto LXi. The vehicle is in Palakkad, Kerala, and has covered just 50,000 kms. The condition is very good, with new MRF tyres, except for a few minor scratches on the body. The car has been maintained very well and taken care of. The asking price is ₹1.5 lakhs, which I feel is fair enough considering that I'm getting a well-maintained car from a known person.

I am purchasing the car for my father and sister to get acquainted with driving. The usage would strictly be within the city, and this vehicle suffices our requirements. Kindly requesting the experts for suggestions regarding the price.

Its always worthy to pay a premium for a used car which you know about If there is no scope for negotiation, you can always ask them to give the car a general service and full tank of fuel before you take the keys as a favor from them. I would personally knock at least 10k off that number. Its an 10 year old car even if it is perfectly maintained. Good luck with the purchase.

Here's one thing I've missed factoring in twice before when I've bought used cars I hope that you at least get to benefit from my failures. Check out the scratches on the windshield after dark by driving it out on the roads. Do the headlights dazzle you due to light scattered by scratches or odd patches on the windshield? If so, I reckon that you should factor in a cool Rs.6000 (approx) for a new windshield for afterwards, when you've bought it.

Me? I bought a new windshield for one used car by spending cash. Right now, am pondering about whether Cerium Oxide powder will do the trick with my used A Star which is otherwise in pristine condition. If not, a new windshield yet again may be my solution

Go to any Windshield expert store and they'll replace the glass and "manage" the insurance process.

Thanks for the valuable inputs. We went ahead with the deal, since the peace of mind that one gets while buying a pre-owned car from a close acquaintance is worth it. Of course, the current owner has agreed to carry out a service before handing over to us.

You're right. That's the best way to get it done. It is just that I have a problem - I cannot lie or commit fraud It just felt so wrong to defraud the insurer and as the windshield expert store guy stared at me, I uttered those fateful words to him - "I'll pay cash and get it replaced".

This is also why I never seem to clear any job interviews. Or why I never had a girlfriend. So on and so forth...because I can't lie!!

Firstly thanks for the reply. You mean to say that all old vehicles will be scrapped?

How is Pajero Sport when compared to Fortuner ?

Do we have any issues in service and is the maintenance of same too high when compared with Toyota Fortuner ?

What if NGT extends 10 years diesel cars on all metros.

Fortuner you will find plenty in second hand market, but Pajero Sport second hand vehicle is hard to find by.

Dont know regarding the maintenance between the 2.
