In general, I price a used car based on 15% depreciation.
A car on buying price or current market price, which ever is lowest is taken for consideration.
For eg) during purchase if the car price is 7L and right now the model is available for 6.5L then please take 6.5 and depreciate with 15%.
Please note that in used car market, the car depreciates to 70 - 80% value in the first year based on market condition, product demand and supply, success factor, local emotional factor.
For 2 years, the number comes to 4.7 L. Now comes the trickier part
if the following is not available, I would deduct this amount:
Music system - 5-8 K
ABS - 20 K
Airbags - 15 K (I generally consider the above two are mandatory)
expenses - the amount you would be spending on the first service post buying like changing tyres (if any), changing parts (if any),
general maintenance, suspension (if any)
My price tag:
Car condition :
Excellent - around 4.5
Good - 4.0
Average - Never think abt buying it.
No.of owners - in general does not matter for a 2 yr car, but some times it comes under emotional factor (individual).
If you have any further queries, could you PM me and we can take it from there?

Will look forward to your ownership report. The real value of Palio is just like what you have paid but market has brought its prices down and many included yours truly took its advantage and bought one for a bargain
Anyway, you are the owner and your priorities count. Enjoy and drive safe!

How much could i expect for my wagonR if sold n Mangalore/karnataka. the details are as follows..
Car: March 08 WagonR Lxi metallic silver.
Odo: about 4k kms.
History: The shell was changed as the car fell off the side of a concrete road within a month of purchase and toppled over at about 80km/ph. Insurance agent offered to have the shell chaged for some extra $ and i agreed as it was for keeps. All work done at Mandovi and done properly.
Reason for sale: Picked up a sx4 for my folks as they are scared of high cars now.
Im getting horrible offers. Im looking for imputs from you'll, espicially members who have sold off/ bought wagonr's of similar vintage.

I had a look at this car and the observation is as follows. I would appreciate if anyone can give their expert opinion on this.
> Car is run 70K Km, second owner, service books available
> Interior and Exterior need some re-work and not in excellent condition
> After doing some research with dealers and internet came to a conclusion that anything between 3.10 and 3.25 would be a good price for such a car. (Did not negotiate with friend about this but had mentioned to him - in fact he suggested me to do some research outside)
> My friend is so confident about the vehicle and I appreciate him for considering the fact that we know each other for a long years and would have to be like that for the rest of years, so I dont anticipate any surprises / issues which are known currently about the vehicle.
1. I am concerned about any major service schedule/unscheduled happen between 70 K and 100 K kms (I plan to use the car for 30 K kms at least). Can any honda expert comment on what would be the major service around this interval? Am thinking of Water pump, timing belt, suspensions etc and hopefully no engine overhauls. PLEASE COMMENT!
2. My other concern is about reselling this vehicle, when I plan to sell it would be 3rd owner and 100 K km (6 digits). Is this going to cause much serious damage to my pocket in re-sale markets? PLEASE COMMENT!
3. After doing the research (looking at and driving similar honda citys with dealers) observed that my friend's honda city (1.5 Exi (New)) 2003 model's Engine do not have the black color plastic head unit on top of the engine, where as the other cars had this - is this something to worry about? Is there any reason for this? PLEASE COMMENT!
Request to share your views on this please.

this car would have cost approx 18 ish when bought new
and ravveendrra is bang on - it really is a brilliant car - the older L&K Laura was ANY DAY more loaded than the newer version L&L Laura.
Worth buying this car at Rs 9.5 - 10 lacs because these higher end expensive cars typically depreciate a clean 50% in value in the first 2 years itself. If the car is seriously well kept and you really like it a lot, then maybe you can push yourself another 50 grand or so to about 10.5
