The dashboard looks like a grisly bear used the car as temporary accomodation. Scratched, Gnawed, Warped and what not. :(
What i would tell you is avoid looking for the car in the chennai (the city) ask someone from outside for eg : Try from vellore, chengalpet or some where semi-urban and rural areas you might end up getting a wonderful deal and vehicle it has worked this way many a times for people i know, what it takes the most is some time and some contacts
All the very best for your search
