I have bought a used Esteem and it has been gpoing good. My friend and his relativeown pre-owned OHC.
While buying a used car you need to be a more careful,
- Buy from good dealers
- Check service and accident history, A.S.S of the respective car would be a good place to check
- Get it checked by a known mechanic
If going for a used car, would suggest to go with trusted brands like Honda/Maruti etc known for low maintenance.
Also for your usage you should be considering only petrol cars
