Re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

Hi,

I am looking for an automatic car with a shoestring budget. My running is very low, and I will be using the car for less than 100 km monthly, and for an occasional 800 km round trip to my home every three months or so. I'm short and very fat, so I'm looking at bigger cars with big seats and all kind of adjustments in seats and steering.

I have been looking at various OLX ads, and wondering at the ridiculous prices being asked. So, I'm planning to post a string of queries here.

How much should I offer for these cars, looking only at pictures which seem in decent condition?

I am at Ottapalam, Palakkad, Kerala.
  1. Toyota Camry 2011 Automatic, 85K, 3rd Owner, Seq LPG kit fitted , asking 5.25L
  2. Scorpio 2009 4WD AT, 2010, 100K kms. 2nd Owner, Asking 3.35 lacs
  3. Chevrolet Cruze LTZ 2011 Diesel 143K km, 2nd owner, Asking 3.8 lacs
  4. Audi A6 2007 V6 Petrol , 110k kms, 2nd owner, Asking 4.95L
  5. 2006 Camry 170k kms, 2nd owner, poor interiors, Asking price 1.55 lacs

Any advice reg. what to look out for/avoid and other suggestions would be welcome. Even if you have a comment on a single car, please reply. Thanks!!

I found olx in kerala to be overpriced by atleast 30-40%, the real price was like 60-70% of the asking price. Cross check with OrangeBookValue to see some realistic prices and then start your bargain based on that.

The number of owners on olx may not be correct. I have found the same car to be listed as a single and a double owner.

There are some hidden gems, if you keep poking on olx. There was a seller selling a corolla AT with Airbags for around <2L with around 100k on the clock, but was listed as a regular corolla, only once you see the pics, do you see that it is an AT car.

Re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

How much I can expect for the 2020 Toyota Innova Crysta 2.4 ZX MT if we purchase it?

The car has run just 7000 Kms and the asking price is 25.5L, which is nearly 3L cheaper than the new one and this will be used by my dad, who is willing to replace our 2011 Innova!

Yet to check this car in person but due to the present situation, I cannot go to the dealer to check the car as the dealer is located far away from the place, where I stay!

But does it solve your problem of poor FE, high maintenance and not being an automatic, it isn't very convenient either to drive around in city.
Also 25.5 lacs is a lot of money, do think about it as a proposition for 3-4 years from now when an automatic might feel essential.

I haven't heard good things about that AT gearbox in the Scorpio...but I'm talking about word of mouth ("I had a friend who had a friend who had an AT Scorpio..."). All in all, the perception I have is not good - for better or worse.

Avoid the Chevy. Spare parts pricing and availability are all loaded against you.

Avoiding the LPG Camry (purely due to doubts on aftermarket LPG fitting), the other Camry can be an option for you. Looks like you'd be getting its FC done. You can expect to spend 1 to 2 lacs (guesstimate, nothing else) on bringing it to top-notch condition. The 1.5 lac pricing seems low enough, but you should have money for the restoration of the car after buying it.

Get the 2011 Camry and disconnect the CNG Kit. Simple.

Get a Toyota is what I am suggesting.

Thanks. I have been looking at a comfy automatic sedan, and so far it has been either overpriced or too old. Is the 2011 Camry worth it at that price? I've seen the engines which have been run on CNG opened up and the insides usually look like the bottom of a frying pan.

See if you can determine if the car was serviced as per Honda's service schedule and if all spares were replaced as per the schedule on the owner's manual. If not, you'll be footing huge bills for the entire car essentially with almost all its parts that are at the end of their life. Engine mounts, transmission mounts, suspension bushes...these parts get hard with time and typically break by the 10th year in my experience. Get the automatic gearbox evaluated by a mechanic or by Honda themselves. Depending on these outcomes, you might want to drive down the asking price.

If you buy the car, get its Auto Transmission Fluid (ATF) changed (drained, not flushed) first and foremost, if it has never been done in its lifetime; and see what's the replacement cost of its automatic gearbox and set aside that sum of money for a worst case scenario where full replacement becomes necessary.

Slightly on the high side, but if you love the car and the car is in Top shape. You should go ahead.

Check the engine mounts and tyres once (if they are new, you should be ok)

Civic is a legendary car, get it if you like it....till you can (15 year rule etc)

The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

I came across a 2016 S model CVT amaze here in chennai - 39k in ODO , price quoted 5.7L and final offer is 5.5L . Is this a good price ? online evaluation tools show prices of 5.4 to 6.1 for the above model . So Iam tempted! Looking for advice from fellow Petrolheads!

I disagree. Paying more than 5 lakhs would not be wise. Try selling it after a year and see what offers you would get.

I am at Ottapalam, Palakkad, Kerala.
The Camry's 2AZ-FE engine may have a possible oil burning issue. I am not sure if the problem is identified in India or not, but most of these engines start burning oil after crossing 60-70k kilometers. There is a TSB by Toyota (TSB #0094-11) which will help. The problem is caused by defective piston rings which although were revised in later years but the problem still exists. Apart from that Camry has pretty solid reliability. Just make sure that you inspect the engine very well. There is a slight possibility that 2AZ-FE engines fitted in Indian spec Camry might not have this problem, but there is no available information concerning that.

The automatic gearbox in Camry (U250E) is pretty reliable. These might develop some erratic shifting problems over time but usually those pretty benign. Most of the time, if you change the ATF and the filter, the problem will go away. Just do such kind of servicing only at the dealer.

The 2011 Cruze can also be a good purchase but with those many kilometers, make sure the timing belt has been replaced. The engine in Cruze is an interference engine and if the belt snaps, you can say goodbye to the engine.

I don't have much info about the auto gearbox in Cruze. Though I have heard from local mechanics that there have been instances of auto gearbox failing in Cruze after certain kilometers. Honestly speaking, I would normally pick a manual transmission with so many kms.

Only for used Toyota, I can suggest you to go with automatic gearbox. These Aisin manufactured auto gearboxes have good track record.

Lastly, stay away from LPG/CNG fitted used cars for obvious reasons.
