  • Which city ru in?
    Answer by Vijas on Jul 10, 2009

  • Hi Vivek,
    If I'm not mistaken, you are from Bangalore.
    There are few things that need to be considered for pricing. While physical inspection of the vehicle may be required, other factors for consideration are:
    1. You are 3rd owner.
    2. Its already been driven for 54,000 kms. So it will require some major checks and changes if any.
    3. A lot of price cut is happening on new cars, so market is changing.

    I would say that a price range of Rs. 1,10,000- Rs. 90,000 is where this fits in.
    Hope you get a good deal!!

  • Vivek,
    The location of your place plays an important role to about 15% of the price. Closer you are to Delhi & other Metros, lower is the price. Further, the state road taxation, the type of Insurance, Extra fittings and number of times the owners have changed are the components that contribute to price to be determined.
    Taking all the above points applied to your case, the third ownership and retro fitting of A/C etc., does not compensate you with your expectation. If you get between 95 -1.10 lakh of rupees, you may sell the car. Good luck.

  • I, as a prospective used Maruti buyer, would look at a threshold that is much lower than the price of the Nano. I feel that no one would like to go for a Maruti that costs close to the Nano. One would rather buy a "new" Nano for 1.4 lakhs than a used Maruti.
    That said, it is better to sell off your car before Nano production starts with full capacity.

    All the best.

  • Hi Vivek,
    The city where you want to sell your car matters a lot. Besides physical inspection matters. In today's scenery think you got a good deal, already. Nevertheless, do approach a Maruti dealer in your city and ask for exchange offer. Whatever he quotes along with the discounts you may add about Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 and arrive at the basic market price. Then you plan your disposal accordingly.
    All the best.
