I owned a 2010 M Eagle Xylo white which I already took to Leh Ladakh and was always to have a Scorpio colored white for this always keen to have deal of used scorpio in reliable source.
I am looking to buy a scorpio from so long, was waiting for Facelift which is around the corner, but seems it’s just a Facelift, it’s going to price high so decided to buy used and replace the headlamps, Bumper & Tail Lamp.
Somehow i never get such deal, but yesterday one of my neighbor has agreed to change his SUV, He already bought new Wagon R.
I used to tell him whenever you want to sell your Scorpio please ask me first, by that he asked me first quoted the price for 6,00,000 /- said for others it will be more than 6.25 Lakhs
Here are the details:
Its SLE BS-IV Variant, April 2011 -
Its Diamond White, - Liked
7 Seat, Bucket seat in 3rd Row, - Was looking for Captain Seat or Flat bench in 3rd Row
Odo has 96000 KMS - Yes car is used as they drive Surat – Bharuch mostly – Its seems to be issue
Rims are changed from stock to Sumo Grande steel wheels (as per them its looks like alloys) – Didn’t liked
Front tires are new Apollo Hawk - Only 2000 Kms run, other 3 tires are used.
Insurance 3rd Party till April – Not an Issue
Fog lamp are get dirt Yellowish due to rain or what ?? – can be Replacing
Headlamps too become Pale Yellow. – Can be replace
Decals become dark & Pale Yellow - Decals are after market,
Engine seems smooth not that much vibrations or Clattering sound.
AC didn't check all way, Battery from stock, Interior are clean compare to exterior, Floor matt is clean, Roof line is clean, even Side handle bars are not dirty,
Electric ORVM working, Scratches in ORVM
Side Cladding has scratches at the corners, Decals are old
Steel guard is junked and damaged the Bumper little bit,
I have already inquire the car history form our local Mahindra Workshop,
But the Service manager quoted me price for 5.25 Lakhs,
He said car has already run 1 Lakh Odo now Scorpio will starts the niggles and problems, the car of life is just 1.5 Lakh Odo.
Asking to others they said price is fair enough try to negotiate till 5.80 Lakhs, but i don't think the owner will go that low, Secondly payment will be partial too,
Now I am in middle of this Deal, My brother is too neutral,
Things which I liked
Its White, Its SLE, Inerior is clean, No major marks on vehicle,
Registration number of Scorpio is 5600 where my Xylo 600 & Eeco has 6600. So I got that 600 sequence.
Things which disliked
The Exterior is not that much shiney looks older than my 2010 Xylo,
Headlamps & Decals been pale, Seats are 7 side facing Buckets,
Paint got dull, Rims are not stocked,
Now I am not a expert about Engine so just called to one friend who was in Carnation as manager today he will Inspect the car, let see what comes out. Because Engine, Shockers, all these are main, other cosmetics things can be replaced,
I am attaching the pics,
Please give me more suggestion for this deal.
