I have had a very bad accident 2 months ago. I was on bed rest for a month with 3 damaged ribs and serious bruises around my legs and arm. I can walk fine now but have some pain in the rib area which my Ortho says will go away in a month or so.
Its a total loss and I could fetch only Rs.20,000 from Kabaadi. I guess I am lucky to be alive.
Anyways, I am looking for a vehicle now. My friends feels I should go for used one to regain confidence and all but I know I am confident enough to drive.
My friends also feels that I should buy a new vehicle after a year or so. If I go that way then I would love to have a Civic for a year or two. I always wanted to drive a Civic but the lower ground clearance never gave me enough confidence to go for it. Now I want to do it.
I have seen a few Civics in Surat and the price for a well maintained Civic are around Rs.3,00,000 to Rs.4,00,000.
Owner of a 2009 White civic, ODO reading of 55,000 with a few scratches but well maintained is asking for Rs.4,00,000 whilst a 2007 Silver AT with 67,000 on ODO is asking for Rs.3,25,000.
Is it worth going for a used one even if I am going to use it for only a year or two?
If NO, I may have to go for a NEW one as my dad and my boss suggested.
Hyundai Creta 1.4 CRDi S+ ( Rs.13,25,000 )
Duster RXL 85 PS with mods ( + Rs.80,000 to the original Rs.11,80,000 ( Minus 1.5 L discount )
Some more details:
- Family of 3. Parents and my siblings would join from time to time.
- Daily usage of 30 km max for weekdays and 60 km max on weekends.
