    Default honda city worth purchasing for 17.5 lac

    Dear experienced pakwheels brothers, i am willing to buy a car, personal prefrence is honda city prosmatic but is it wise desicion to spend such a huge amount on a normal car,
    even if i go for used cars the asking prices are more than new car prices,
    (kia hamari awam ziada laalchi hogai hai ke shayad sale ho hi jaye gari) banda used car is lye cater karta hai ke thori saving ho jaye , agr used car new se bhi mehngi to banda kia kare. is mulk mein sab kuch ulta hai. choron ko police protection deti hai to used car new se mehngi kyon ni hosakti
    And if i book honda city now, suppose in november 2016, and get its delievery in 2017 is it considered 2016 model or 17 model.

    Another option is my friend is selling 12 model prosmatic black colour , excellent condition, tv nav, back cam ,alloy rim, 70000 driven. what is the reasonable price for it, (kindly aise price suggest karein jis per mein bhe baad mein sale kar sakun).

    thank you

    what options do u hv in 17
    xli with no power windows?
    in jdm probably a hybdrid hatch with genuine auction sheet and almost 100,000 kms ?
    or some reborn like u mentioned high on mantainace / yearly tokens/ bad resale

    eventually choice is yours
    otherwise forum is flooded with opinions
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    City used wali le lo bhai
    ...
    when new model will launch, sell this and buy the new one
    ...
    JDM around 1.7 mil are Aqua, Juke (adding some budget), Prius 2010-2011 (adding some budget)
    ...
    Aqua can be imported in less mileage in this budget, but only if u like the car
    ...
    Rest all depends upon your needs
    Keep Faith in Allah...

    Always get brand new car when you are paying more than 12 lacs. Book the new one and use it for the next three years and then change it. I would recommend 1.5 prosmatic NOT 1.3 prosmatic. Manual is perfect and has the best resale. You can get Aqua secondhand unregistered in this price. Which is very popular now a days. If you want to save money then do as i do. Get yourself tax filed first. You will get Rs 30k tax saving on purchase. Another Rs 30k saving in your salary tax adjustment (need to tell your company to do it). I purchased Honda City 1.3 standard model. Upgraded tires to 195/65/R15 Nexen Eco. Going to install Android system 11 inch screen. Total cost 16 lacs. Best car deal ever.

    Depends upon what is the booking period for honda city.....if its 2months or more then obviously your car would be invoiced as 2017 and registration would also be of 2017...
    by the way its your personal choice ..but why you want to spend such hefty amount on a car with 7 years old shape and a new model/shape around the corner... i would suggest you to either wait for new shape or go for corolla ... because whats the fun if after spending such hefty amount you would be sitting in a car after few months which would be old shape and with a drop in resale value

    i have bad experience with jdms , if we can get brand new jdm which is night mare for us then jdm.s are perfect other wise they are already used very much, i have an experience of purchasing vitz, despite of having in pristine condition and searching for many days i opted for best car in market but after some time it started giving problems, and within 2 years its engine gave away, its fuel average dropped to 5 km/l went to many workshops but no one can clear that problem.

    (obviously har koi nai nai chezein change karata tha or labour charge karta tha , aur bolta tha ke ok kardi hai gari 3, 400 km chalain ap ko result mil jayega but koi farq ni parta tha. choor sare apne ap ko bohat bara engineer samjhte the)

    so after that horrible experience i would never go for used jdms.
    i would prefer local used cars over used jdms , because if it gives some trouble then easy and cheap fixing is possible.

    Prosmatec is the best option. 1.5 doesn't have any performance issues whereas 1.3 might feel slightly sluggish with lower rpm's with A/C but it is negligible. And automatic cars don't have a bad resale nowadays.
