@Amby : I had brought Indica DLS(2004) model in 2006 around 17K Kms(Not sure) on ODO. And used it till 2012, previous generations TATA cars had some issue, But, it is managable and repairable. in TATA, Spares are damn cheap, so it won't make any hole in pocket. BTW
, Black Indica DLS made me to go for another TATA product, That is why I brought Vista and roaming happily with it.
ODO reading, Tyre status, Engine refinement, Rust on body and underchase, rattles, Battery. I think these basic checks are enough.
