    Default Going to buy 2009 Chevrolet Joy

    Salam....Yesterday while looking for a small car for my daily ride I was searching for Cuore 2004/2005 , alto 2001/2003 japanese, Toyota duet 2003, (my price range is 450k to 480k) I came across a chevrolet joy 2009 regd 2009 with full original paint and full original interior with ff cng the guy was asking 500k ,,somehow I and 2 of my friends let the seller agrred on 460k. Now i searched all reviews on PW from 2008 to 2013 I conclude that resale was the only issue with the car. I am planning to keep the car for about 4 to 5 years(InshaAllah).......Comments welcome for my dcision.

    If you can forget resale issue,go for it,very well built quality if compared with its counter parts,Alto,Duet,Cuore,Santro........ List goes on,but this has an edge over all,r they all of same age.

    The resale doesn't mean you have a trouble free good car for 5 years. Thats on the condition and build qaulity. So if resale is the only issue, then you should definitely go for it. And 2009 is comparatively newer too so thats better as well.

    Sir jee, If resale is not an issue for you. And you are ready to keep it for next 3-4 years, then go for the latest model which you can get. generally the newer the car better performance will be there.

    You should also consider the fact that why it's resale is effected? Because of rare and expensive parts as compared to it's competitor cars. If you can deal with this problem then go for it.

    well my last ride was 2004 vti prosmatec, i mainatained it for 5 years(as second owner) i think vti parts are also expensive and vti is also need proper maintainance. Now what you think of other many different japanese variants running on road how may of them have parts problem(eg. esse, mira, subaru, pino, duet, move, etc..)

    The driving pleasure is a thing which is intangible, hence here that does not count, but the pleasure u get while driving and keeping this car is priceless...
