Hello sir.

I am planning to buy the Jeep Compass 1.4 Sport, Petrol from the Spinny.

The offer price is 15.75 lakh, 2019 model and has run 3750 kms.

What are your recommendations and advise to me sir ?

Thank you in advance.

Dear Aditya ji,

Greetings !!

Asking Price at 15.75 Lakh means just 15% depreciaton is what charged up which is just too low for a car like compass
Even if car is just 3750 KMs driven - This is not a value price
See Compass Sport Petrol Manual is entry level trim and quiet less stocked in features.
Now when you spending in substantial 15.75 Lakh and that too for base Compass Sport 2 yr Old Model in Used car market - its just overpriced by minimum 2 Lakh

So i cant really recommend for this car

But still if you still would like to go for it due to any reason
1. Despite fact that car just been 3750 Kms and still under manufacturer warranty - as you spending moolah important for you to ask and check for Service records of car to rule out odometer tampering and assurance that car service was done on time

2. Also, if theres way to interact with previous owner to understand his usage type
I mean 3750 Kms in 2 yrs is just too low, like if hes using for very short distance use means car engine barely reached its operating temperature or alternatively if he used it for once or twice a month for 50 to 100 Kms weekend drive then its okay.

3. Is Insurance Valid ? if yes when is it expiring as you can transfer same to your name

4. Negotiation aspect, dont settle for more than 14.5 Lakh even if you finding everything perfect with the car and stays in Karnataka having highest road tax zone.

Hope should help !!

Thank you so much for the timely response sir.

I had a test drive of the car yesterday. The representative from Spinny brought the car.

The condition of car is terrific. Checked all service records and found correct.
