Default Re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

I have a question to people here who are seeking used cars. Do you blindly believe the mileage mentioned on the odometer of the car? Especially ones being sold by a dealer.
When I was in market for a car, I completely wrote off used cars due to me having absolutely no knowledge of what to check and don't want headache of unexpected broken parts once I get the car.

I am asking this question because my brother sold his 130K Kms done Honda City to a dealer in September 2021 and less than a week after that, the same car was listed on OLX as 80K Kms. I always knew odometer tampering was being done outside but seeing it happening with our family car was surreal. This further cemented my decision to not even consider used cars.

No, i don't believe blindly. I always have a rule of buying car from direct owner not more than 4 years, such that i have access to extended warranty as well as service history.

.
I just bought a used car from a dealer, and I verified the mileage quoted by him by checking the service history of the car from the car's authorised service station. That in my opinion is the only way to verify the quoted mileage.

Service records. Move on if there's any hesitancy or reasons given for it's absence. Even if some of the most recent records are from an external (FNG) garage, one can infer when the odometer numbers have been cooked.

For instance, in your brother's case, the dealer when asked by potential buyers for service records will give BS to such requests or provide only service records till 80k. Tough to fake the records if your brother had got it serviced from Honda service centers.

Thanks for your response and apologies for the delay on my side. Being 'newbie', I think you should be able to PM me, but am not able to PM you yet.

Its been some time since your post, so I think the opportunity is lost. Anyway, thanks again and do let me know if you find something equivalent.

Since you mentioned the location as WB, for your reference, I sold my 2011 i20 top model for 1.85L. It had its tax due though. Regardless, 1.9L for a 9 year Santro is a LOT. It should be around 1.25L.

I was speaking with the dealer from whom I purchased my last car (2012 Honda City V AT), as I'm in the market for a new one. He told me about a Blue 2009 BMW 520d with Beige interiors, first owner (company owned), which has had all its services done at BMW Authorised dealers. I'm yet to confirm how many KMs it has run. It has insurance until Oct 2022 and it had 45% NCB in the last renewal. He's offering it for 8 Lakhs. This is in Bengaluru.
Now, I was not even thinking of BMW 5 series till today. I was looking for something new and better than the City.
He sent me a video of the car, and it looks to be in a decent shape. I still have to visit and check it out in person. But, it's got my mind going bonkers. I had a BMW 3 series at the back of my mind. But this was unexpected.

Is 8L a decent price for a one owner 520d in Bengaluru?

1. Should be 2015 or younger manufactured vehicle

3. Single owner vehicle
4. Must be an Automatic
5. Fuel = Diesel

1. BMW 525 D
MY - 2012
ODO - 56 K
Asking price - 13.8 OTR

2. Toyota Camry Hybrid
MY - 2014
ODO - 74K (Battery replaced in 2019 and tires are relatively new)
This is a corporate customer car and registered in the name of a company in (JK cement)
Asking Price - 15.25 OTR

3. Volkswagen Passat
MY - 2018
ODO - <30K
Asking price - 22.00
This is Punjab registered vehicle

Grateful if you guys can suggest which deal is worth considering.
I am yet to discuss the sale of my s-cross with any of these dealers.
How much have you done with your S-Cross 1.6 till now, I am referring to Kilometers driven.

If it was driving pleasure and heart over head, then go for BMW.`Price seems to be okay on that and it has not done that many miles as well. Just check what all parts will be up for replacement as the car is 9 years old. Check with a CH/PB based delaer, BMW was very common in Punjab and Chandigarh, you may get a good deal or like a 530D.

Toyota - You can never go wrong with them, they are build to last a lifetime and are like tanks. And since it is a corporate customer car, it might have been maintained well too plus could be chauffeur driven.

Passat - I personally do not trust VW but then if you have set your eyes on it, it might be good deal. Did you check with any dealer in Chandigarh, I dont know if they have that Car market in Sector 26 (Chandigarh) every Sunday. That is also another place to check for good used cars.

I picked up 2013 Ford Figo1
4 tdci (The model below Titanium) used by my friend for 2.4 lakhs. Pro : It had got 88k on odo. Vehicle used mostly on highways, Engine sound is absolutely fine, No major accidents
Cons: one side of the car is fully repainted due to minor accidents (There is orange peal.. Thank god its a white car), Rear door is mildly mis aligned and both rear door dont open that easily. There are squeaks and rattling on all doors and dash. Front break pad has to be replaced.
Others: I had to sweat for three weekends cleaning the car inside out.. Car had Michelin with 30k on them, unfortunately front tyre got burst while navigating through a narrow lane, due to side wall damage by sharp object. Replaced both front tyre with Conti cc6 (UC was not available) Missing the silent feel of Michelins.
Service plans: plan to replace all fluids, Fan and Ac belts, fuel filter, copper washer in the injectors, Car was not returning good mileage so added wurth diesel additive for a tank full, will do an engine flush and replace 5w30 twice, second fill with additives.
1.4 Tdci users kindly let me know if i need to cover any preventive maintenance if any for 90K

Greetings fellow BHPians!

I am a newbie and this happens to be my first post.

I am negotiating for a 2019 Tata Hexa XTA which has done about 32000 Kms. The car is registered in Chandigarh. Prima facie, it appears well kept with 3-4 minor scratches.

The asking price is 13.5 Lacs. May I get an estimation of the fair price for this car?

Thanks!
