That looks like a good price for the Linea diesel. we havent heard about any major problems with the Linea even after a few years of use, so it will be a safe buy. Tata services Fiat cars, and some people have had complaints about service quality – but it is often dependent on the dealer. Some dealers are good, some are not so good. I believe it…[Read more]
Rs.4.6 lakh is a good price for a 2009 diesel Linea. However keep in mind that it doesn’t not have good resale value.
As Rishabh said, it loses resale value quite fast, but in your case that’s an advantage, since you are getting it second hand! The price sounds good for a Linea diesel. Which variant is it?
2009 Linea Emotion diesel for Rs. 4.6 lakh is a good deal. Take it. Just make sure you inspect the car thoroughly for accident damage or any major repairs. Ask for a service history of the car, if available.
Go for it!
Check the ODO meter… If its above 75,000 caution… U wud have to spend more than 1 lakhs in the maintenance dept… I give my word that it cud tear ur pocket for sure…. The diesel injector, turbo charger etc etc…
well az per me itz a bad 1 cz u cud get a swift vxi 2007 in gud condition in arnd 2.7 to 2.8 at max….
It’s still about Rs. 25,000 too much. But given the higher cost of cars in Bangalore, and the sparing use. It is a fair deal, considering the good maintenance, you could look at it at the price you’ve quoted.
Sounds good, especially because you are confident it is a good car, and Bangalore prices are higher always.
Thanks All !
The Skoda Octavia is a good car to drive, maintenance though isn’t very easy on the pocket as it was discontinued. It’s mileage will be around 13 kmpl.
Octavia spares are a tad expensive. You will be able to get good second-hand cars now, but long-term maintenance may be an issue, as it’s outdated.
That is a lot of driving Shashank! The quick answer is Chevrolet Beat diesel. It will fit in your budget, and you get around 19-20 kmpl. The only other car that will come close is the regular Indica (not Vista, that is costlier). If you haven’t driven the Beat diesel yet, I suggest you should get a test drive first to figure out if you are OK with…[Read more]
The Beat diesel’s base LS model will be touching 5lakh OTR Delhi. Indica eV2 can be looked at too. I am rather wary of the second hand diesel idea. An ill maintained diesel can be OK today and suddenly require maintenance tomorrow. A very practical option for you as a resident of NCR will be CNG. Pick up a WagonR green and enjoy years of no…[Read more]
Shashank: Your options are limited to the beat diesel and the Tata Indica ev2 at this price point. If you can afford to stretch your budget the the Ford Figo is another good option.
How many kilometers do you drive in a day with the Swift? And if you wanted a second-hand car, how much would you be willing to spend?
Hi Shashank, Please mention how much you drive daily? And what your budget is for a used diesel car, then it’ll be easier to help you narrow it down.
Mayur Vihar to G Noida in a petrol swift!!! Gosh. You remind me of the days when I used to do my Faridabad to Amity commute on petrol. Your best bet will be to get your Swift converted to CNG. Lowest investment, max return. A sequential type kit from a reputed make like Tommetso or Landi Renzo will cost aroung 35-40k incldng registration. You can…[Read more]
shreyans jain sd it all
haha same in ur situation bt a slight diff is dat i purchased a petrol irrespective of my father sayings fr diesel (tilak ngr to amity approx 75 km ) n nw cursing my decision .. go a head with a cng transformation
dear shashank, listen what shreyas said, convert to CNG! You will never enjoy driving a diesel car, esp a second hand one! Be a defensive driver! Good luck!
Guys, heard you people talking about all the positives sides of CNG, I have been traveling by a CNG car till the distance was short, but when my office shifted to Gurgoan, so I had to travel for 80Kms up down, & than I was like I cannot stand every alternate day for getting CNG filled in my car. So I went to True Value & First choice & bought a…[Read more]
Rahul has a point. If you have the time to wait in queues at the CNG filling station, then it’s worth converting to CNG (and saving quite a bit in the process). But if you think a diesel car will solve both issues – as in give you enough range to cover 1 week without refilling, then look for a second hand diesel. But the huge difference in cost…[Read more]
If you are buying a new diesel then it is perfectly fine. It is the idea of a second hand diesel that I am wary of. Btw, the availability of gas across India is best in NCR. If it cant be done here, it cant be done anywhere else. Gas in Faridabad is Rs32/kg and a full tank(Rs300 approx) lasts around 200-220km. Yes the queues can sometimes be a…[Read more]
guyz my daily run iz arnd 70 kms a day n i can xtend my budget to 4.6 lks
Ideally, I’d suggest converting your Swift to CNG and spending some of the cash you’ll save on doing it up to your liking (give it a makeover). But if you want to splurge on a new car, then look at the Beat diesel (it gives great fuel economy), but you may not like driving it after driving a Swift.
