Used CRV vs new Safari/Scorpio

Recommended Posts

Hi car lovers,

 

I want to buy an SUV in the sub Rs. 10 L bracket. I have always liked the CRV a lot, and want to go for an old CRV rather than buy a new Scorpio / Safari. My questions:

 

1. Anything glaring about the 2004/2005 CRV models that would make it a bad buy? For example, if the CRV starts giving constant maintainance headaches after 40,000 kms or so.

 

2. Is a Rs. 9L price tag fair for a 2005 2.4L A/T CRV which has done about 50,000 km in city conditions?

 

3. Where to go looking for the CRV (any good suggestions besides and opinions on FirstChoice, Carwale.com etc).

 

Thanks in advance

Go for the Honda. Those things are pretty good even as a used buy. Make sure you buy a good example. If the car hasn't been abused by the previous owner, maintenance will not be an issue. Take a look at our how to buy a used car thread in the following link.

The used CRV will give much better driving pleasure and performance than the others. For practicality, if your driving is less than 12000kms a year the CRV would be ideal, otherwise diesel would be better. Try buying one with less mileage on it.

Like FRG pointed out, 9L is high for a three year, 50000kms CRV.

Guys,

One more thing into the mix:

Grand Vitara V6, 2003 model, 35000 Kms on it - from Maruti Truevalue for INR 8 Lacs

Does this seem like a good deal vs. a 2004/05 CRV? If not, what should be a fair price?

8 lakhs is high, am sure there will hardly be any buyers for it. Bargain hard, start with 7 lakhs maybe lesser.

The CRV is much better even of it is more expensive as the overall experience will be much better provided you get a good car. Whatever said and done, in the end it is a Suzuki, thats what most people will think.
