Hi,
The price quoted seems to be just according to market value. You can negotiate for around 25K or so which makes best deal.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 09 September 2010

hi Jones, be aware of "the small small problems" this actually add up and you may end up spending 25-30K more.

Answer by Rahul 09 September 2010

60K KMs done. It's almost end of diesel engine life in another 25-30K KMs. So think and buy some higher year model with less KMs done. And. "small smal problems" -- can you explore a bit, what are those?

Answer by Sandeep 09 September 2010

dear jone,

have a close look over the small small problem with your trusted mechanic as they may create headache later. better to negotiate the price or get rid of those small small problem from the seller in front of your eyes if you are willing to buy it.

Answer by Vikraant 09 September 2010

I own a second hand car. Careful about the small small repairs and negotiate based on it according & also its a diesel engine. If it s a petrol engine maintenance cost are less compartively.
The right price for the same will not be more than 4 Lakhs or better buy any new diesel engine vehicle.

Dont listen to the seller & check the milege as it has already done 60,000 KM it might have lost its milege credibility.If so, The main purpose of owning a diesel engine vehicle is lost.

Yes,

I too support the upper post but not the price. It's not a Corsa it's a Verna.

I too got a used Hyundai Sonata Gold 2002 Model ( it was a 100% imported car)which had got n nos. of problems ( not major) but try to negotiate for the amount which i have did for my car.
1. Clutch Assembly :15,000/- (18,000/- i had to spend & replace as my car was also 60K Kms runed & ur's is diesel car so i think u must.
2. Suspension Struts & bushings: 25,000/-.( Life almost 60K for struts)
3. Break Pads & Liners: 10,000/-
4. Battery: 6,000/-
5. Two General servicing cost: 15,000 Approximate including engine timing belt ( it's most important aspect to be checked, if it's not replaced as per the schedule, ur car may go in major break donwn while running if timing belt gets cut.
6. Tires: 5 Tubeless tires @ 7,000/- each ie. 35,000( u can check if the tires r ok else u have to replace at any cost)
So all toghter 56,000/- ( Exclusive of Tires) ie. round off 60,000/- if u can negotiate, go for it so that the saved 60,000/- u can spend gradually on service so that ur car will also go many times to the service station & hence u can do the necesary repairs based on ur comfort. Like mine, u will need not to spend at a time as it's all mandetory to work on.

Also get the car checked thoroughly for Back pressure & Turbo Lag- Balance.
Injection Systems are also to be checked & calibrated properly as i heard, the injection system can't be repaired & it has to be replaced. So carefully check the same once through some expert mechanic.
Also check the history of the car from Hyudai Service station to conclude the Kms run are not tampered.

I have been not cheated but was fooled by the seller as he did not did the proper maintenance of the car as he had lost his heart in it, so he was simply using it till it gets selled off & i thought of to help u out as what i have faced i would not like some one else to face...
All the best.

Swapnil Natu.

Answer by Mahesh More 11 November 2017

i think hyundai verna diesel crdi vgt is best when it comes to engine life. It has great turbo and torque for good pick up. Only thing you have to do is get it serviced every 10000 kms and car is as good as new and very smooth running. Ride quality is very good in verna.
