Default Re: What was your car's actual resale?

Had booked an Alto, but when I heard a relative selling his santro, cancelled the Alto booking.
1. Car (with version): Santro 1999 model (without PS) bought in 2005 from a relative
2. Approx Kms run while selling: 72k (35k when bought)
3. Car's overall condition as per you: Poor. Excellent engine, lots of dings and scratches, water dripping from the roof during rains.
4. No. of Owners while selling: 4 (First car )
5. City of Selling: Mumbai
6. Sell Price: Rs. 65,000 (bought for 125k)
7. Sold to Individual. Sold in 2008
Was my first car, bought from a close relative and condition was good. Only problem, I did not check anything. Fact that my uncle himself was taken for a ride and he never realized. Lot of work was done on the car before he bought and he did not know. During my usage, lot of POP or lambi started coming off and I realized the extent of work that was done on its exteriors.
But the car that it was, it never gave any problems as such. Quite a workhorse.

1. Car (with version): Palio GTX 2002 (bought in 2008)
2. Approx Kms run while selling: 49k (15k when bought)
3. Car's overall condition as per you: Good. Excellent engine, one dent on the bonnet, hardly any scratches, chiller of an AC
4. No. of Owners while selling: 2
5. City of Selling: Pune
6. Sell Price: Rs. 55,000 (bought for 160k)
7. Sold to Individual. Sold in Dec 2016
Was difficult to sell it but had to let it go due to its age.

Above two posts also show how beneficial it is to buy used cars. Unfortunately my family had only one condition this time. Whatever you buy, buy new. So I ended up buying a new i20 in Jan 2017.

Sold my 2012 Beat LT Diesel, Biege color in October 2018 for 2.1 lakhs.
Odo was at 57000 kms during sale. Genuine reading. Like the name suggested it was used mainly as a Beater car for groceries, short runs etc with other cars doing long distance runs. Chev shutting operations in India had impacted the resale value hugely.

Default What was your car's actual resale?

Bought my Yeti Elegance 4x4 in Nov/ Dec 2011.
Paid almost 20 lacs - approx 19.75/- lacs On Road Bangalore.
Now selling it off tomorrow or so, directly to an end-user/ buyer for Rs 6.25 Lacs after almost exactly 8 years of good service, plenty of enjoyment, having spent lots of money to look after it perfectly and having driven approx 47700kms in it.
Buyer has paid me an advance. Im in the thick of the paperwork now and expect to complete the transaction tomorrow and receive the remainder.
All the Registration Transfer costs, agent costs and fresh insurance costs are all to the account of the buyer though I am helping him through the whole process to ensure it gets done efficiently, speedily, professionally and on time.

Maruti 800- my first car. Bought in 2006 for INR 2.2 lakhs and sold in 2012 for INR 1.15 lakhs.

Maruti Swift petrol- my second car. Bought in 2012 for INR 5.75 lakhs, and spent lots of money of high quality alloys, tires and an expensive audio setup. Sold in 2019 for INR 3.55 lakhs in exchange for my current Honda City.

Both cars were maintained in mint condition, with a lot of love and affection, needless to say.

That is the magic of Maruti in the Indian market. If the car is decently maintained, you are likely to get a solid resale value for it even after a relatively long ownership period. Fun fact- both were sold to dealerships in exchange offer transactions. If I had made the effort of negotiating for a private buyer, the prices would in all probability have been substantially higher.

Default Re: What was your car's actual resale?

1. Car: June 2010 Honda City S MT
2. Kms run while selling: 78k
3. Car's overall condition: Mechanically and cosmetically excellent (Paint. No dents)
4. No. of owners while selling: One
5. City: Gurgaon
6. Sale price: Rs. 2 lakhs
7. Sold to Cars24
8. Reason for selling: Wasn't being used as much

Could have easily got more for this car (given the condition and the model) but chose to go ahead with the price Cars24 offered because:
1) Covid has affected the market sentiment overall so individual sale might have take unpredictably longer
2) Didn't want to have multiple people come in and TD the car given Covid
3) Didn't want parents to deal with the whole process
4) Didn't want parents to deal with the RTO transfer process

Convenience far outweighed possible better resale value.
