Swift Dzire Petrol VXI

Registration Date : May 2016

Asking price : 420000

Km driven : 40 000+

Checked the vehicle with a mechanic , he said ,vehicle condition is good.

I have no knowledge to judge a vehicle condition and deciding its good buying price .

What you guys suggest , should I buy this for 420000 ? A 2016 model though . 

Or better to go with new Dzire ?

Are older engines are inferior to new varients in Dzire ?

I personally think it is expensive.. they guy would’ve paid 6-7 Lakhs for the new car in 2016.. it’s 5 years old n hence shd be at 50% the value. My take is to buy it at 3.5-3.7 lakhs assuming everything is fine with it as mentioned.

Check prices on sites like cars24 or bluebook / orangebook etc.

New Dzire has DualJet engine with slight improvements in refinement & fuel efficiency.
As mentioned by others 3.5L should be the range for the second hand car you’ve shortlisted.

Prices have increased now after Jan/March, due to demand.
2016 model for 3 lakhs, nearly impossible

Need luck to find a buyer willing to sell at lower prices

Yes but if other buyers are ready to buy at higher price then bargaining is of no use. stuck_out_tongue

Also depends on the city, area as well

the car dealer may be keeping his profit very high. I asked him to make it 400000 but he is like “sir 4 lakh mein kharida hun”(bought the car in 4L). he might have purchased it in between 3-3.5L . never know rolleyes

Did you check the service/accident history? Ask them to install maruti app (some maruti service/repair app not sure about the exact name) and register the car number and you can see the entire history of the car service/accident (if done in authorized maruti service centers). You can even contact someone in maruti service center (not sure if they charge a legal fee or if u can pay something extra) and ask them to show your the car history.
