Hi. I got an offer of ecosport trend petrol 1.5 for 4.7lakh. the vehicle has done 15,000 km. Do u think it is a fair price. Also how to make out if the car is from the recalled batch?
Admin Accepted Answer

Which City ?
Considering 5 year Old Car - 15000 Kms is just too low
Hope you cross checked the odometer with dashboard, tyre condition, service history and usage to rule out Odometer tampering

In terms of asking price at 4.7 lakh - well its slight on higher side - ideal would be Rs 4.25 Lakh in Delhi and Rs 4.5 Lakh in Mumbai, Bangalore
Suggest to negotiate only after close inspection to rule out odometer tampering

In terms of immediate expenses
> You need to check for battery if replaced by first owner - if not then battery near end of life in 5 to 6 yrs
> Tyres needs to be replaced and not to be continued after 6 years - even if tyre tread seems ok as rubber compound chemical breaks over period of time and best to replace tyres after 6 years

Hope should help !!

Thank you much for your valuable response. I have checked the odo its cloaked 14,500 kms. I hope he has not tampered it. Stock tyres are install with minimum wear.

No visible damage both on interior and exterior. For price negotiation that is the last price offered to me. City is Gantok, Sikkim.

Had not thought of battery and tyre replacement. Thank you for your suggestion.
