Default Re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

An old colleague is moving back to Bengaluru from his hometown and is looking for a used car (I did ask him to get it from his town since it would be cheaper than Bengaluru but that did't work out).

We came across a Hyundai i20 Diesel Asta on spinny that seems to be in decent nick. Thinking of checking it out this weekend (https://www.spinny.com/buy-used-cars...n-bangalore/s/).

However, I am not sure of the prices. Is 4.96L even close to being resonable for a 65k run 1st Owner example?

Public service announcement:

This youtube channel, although in hindi, has actual good videos on inspecting used cars for purchase. Checking body, paint, engine, mileage, etc.

I sold off my 2012 Feb Ritz VDI BSIV run only 25635km ( I know, very less running) to Maruti True value for 2.90L. Is this Okay? Or I should have got slightly more?
I sold to True value to avoid the worry /hassles whether buyer will transfer vehicle to his name etc.,
I had a bad experience in my earlier episode of selling my Zen

You wanted to avoid worry so you sold it for whatever dealer margin less than you would get if you sold to a private buyer. The dealer would probably list the car at 3.5 and sell for a bit lower.

Some update from my so far elusive search of a decent S-Cross. I am considering following examples -
  1. Zeta, 40K, Feb 2018, dealer stuck at 7.75 L -
  2. Zeta, 25K, Dec 2017, asking price 8.25, I think will come down to 7.75-8 L
  3. Alpha, 25K, Dec 2017, dealer stuck at 9 L - Excellent Condition

Now I love the 3rd one, but don't want to spent anything above 8.25 on it. Is it logical or should I be ready to pay more?

I am still to see the first 2, but 1st one looks like excellent on paper (pics and service history). 2nd one has no insurance so apprehensive on it. However the difference in odometer is significant. What do you guys think?

I think after searching for more than 2 months, fatigue is coming in and I may take a hasty decision now

Finally, I also saw a DEMO Car Alpha, 16K, ask 8.75L, condition good though interiors looks like abused - the leather wrapping on steering wheel has gone off at places. There was also some water/oil coming out from exhaust pipe when I started cold. Now learning from our threads on Demo cars, I walked off as soon as I got to know its a DEMO car. However my wife thinks I overreacted (and was rude to the salesperson) and should have atleast taken a test drive before deciding. Any thoughts here

It is absolutely the right price. You should be very happy for your decision.

P.S. Now that you have made the decision, no point thinking about it. You may have got a few thousand more, but consider it a price for your peace of mind.

Nice call on the Demo car

Searching a perfect car after COVID is quite hard as people are not letting go off their car easily. I would suggest looking and inspecting all the cars than making a right decision.

The car would be with you for around 5 to 6 years spending more now and getting a better car now would be a wise decision.

Atlast do a thorough inspection and choose the car in best mechanical condition or wait a bit more for the perfect car.

Some more update on my search for the S-Cross. Well rejected the 1st & 3rd option due to price and I am left with only 2nd one - S-Cross Zeta, 25K run, Dec 2017 registered.

The deal is negotiated at 7.75L. However I got to know that this is a car repossessed & auctioned by the bank. The dealer has the registration card. Insurance has expired long ago. Also he is still to get the NOC & other papers from the bank, which is expected to take ~4 weeks. So even though I want to go ahead, I have to wait.

Any suggestion on this one - should I go ahead? What are the things to keep in mind.

Is it worth going for this 2012 Elantra?

I know nothing of Hyundais in India or Elantras. But I had purchased a similar vintage beater A Star automatic that had run only 29,000 Km and I have had to change the following that are not the usual consumables - spark plugs, ignition coils, AT transmission fluid, the engine's mounts, a link rod, headlights and the horn. Brake calipers have a sporadic issue. Windshield is scratched and needs replacement. Brake boosters from the factory are overdue for replacement.

All of these popped up despite a proper pre-purchase inspection. It dawned on me that ageing in cars is inevitable and along with it comes all these repairs and replacements. I'd have been happier if I had factored in these into my purchase price - not that I regret buying it though. It still remains a great VFM buy.

I own a 2013 Elantra SX petrol and never spent on anything except regular service. It's a great engine though not the most fuel efficient and is a boat to drive on highway. Supremely comfortable seats at front and rear (for 2). Except for touch screen related features and sunroof, it's got everything basic covered (cruise control, rear ac vent, ventilated seats, great boot space). Don't know of any issues besides vague steering.
Guess you have a reason why you like it so I don't need to sell its virtues. If it's mechanicals are in order and it's been serviced regularly, it's a great price. Imagine it was a 20lakh rupee car 9yrs ago!

Not sure how the Elantra or any executive sedan of this class will hold up in future dominated by pseudo-SUVs. In fact, it's the lone warrior in class at present, & only the Octavia will be be it's competition in few months.

Moreover, I don't think it's worth going for a 9 years old product even if it's supported by good ASS.

Ball in your court

Checked two here locally in Chandigarh and found that their odometers were manipulated with. Both were for 28 Lakhs with just 50000 Kms and 2017 models. Later on when checked with the Ford Dealership, they had both run almost 1.3 Lakh kilometers.
I have March 2017 UP14 Registration 4x4 3.2 Titanium Golden Bronze.
I am willing to sell it, whats the best price I can get for it?
Odometer never tempered and currently at 52k KM. All services on time, got the tyres changed at 50K KM with BF Goodrich (82,000 INR)
