Try using the used car price evaluator tool on the homepage of carwale. That will give you a fair idea of what you can expect for your car

Try going in for exchange when buying new car. Will save you the trouble of finding the buyer & you'll get about the same price if not more. Moreover finding a buyer for 800 will be bit tough too IMO

IMO don't sell the car. Use it for as long as you can because (1) it will anyways not fetch a big amount when sold - its already 8 years old so I guess it will fetch about 80-90k, and (2) in terms of running cost or Rs/km, this car will be much, much cheaper than a new car when you consider its cost, and the kms run till date. By all means buy a new car but use this car also. That way you will be extracting maximum value from it.

I second Rohit. Selling it will not fetch you much benefit. That too, the mileage being so low, you can run it for double the ODO reading without much maintenance. You could always use it as a second car for short runs, or to go to cramped areas, provided you are buying a bigger car. If you plan to buy a smaller car such as the alto etc you can sell it as then it will be useless to have to cars of nearly the same segment. 




Every time we think of enjoying smooth, silent and killer petrol engines, they call a rise in petrol prices!

You can contact to best used car dealers. They would suggest you best price according to your car conditions.

...and your point being...? Aren't you simply stating the obvious?

Thanks folks....Any tips on what I need to do while selling this car.How do I ensure its not being misused by Antisocial elements after I've sold it or how do I know the buyer is genuine.Is DD a good method of collecting payment.

Any list of reputed official buyers in Mumbai area.

I'd love to keep this car,as its perfect but I'm struggling for parking space.

So I need to sell it,but I dont want to sell it too cheap or to someone that is not genuine.

If genuineness of the buyer is your concern, why not sell it through Maruti TrueValue? They will give a receipt as soon as you handover the car to them.

You can also insist that, after they sell it to the end user, you want to see the original RC book after re-registering and if possible get an attested copy of the new RC book for your records so that if some anti-social elements misuse it, you will be legally clean.
