I am planning to buy an used car,This is my first car, the budget is around 3.5 Lakhs. I have my eye on these cars.

  1. Honda city - 2006 - 2007
  2. Ford Fiesta 2006 - 2008
  3. Swift vxi 2006 - 2008

What car can I get for these budget, what model and how many kilometers on odo meter.

I would like to hear from other members about what car would be a wise decision (suggest any other as well which is not in above list)

I have seen a 2004 honda city, run 60K kilometers for 3.5 lakhs and a Ford fiesta zxi durasport 70K kilometers run, 2006 model, second owner for 3.5 lakhs as well.

Re: Which used car for around 3.5 lakhs

Welcome aboard to The Automotive India. Please elaborate about the requirements (Running, Purpose, Body Style, Priorities etc.) so that we can advice a correct car. Also don't look in for high-mileage cars. You can easily find some genuine low-run sedans under this much budget (Approx. 30K - 40K+ Kms).

Drive Safe,

Re: Which used car for around 3.5 lakhs

@Sramanandi:
I don't know about anything else,but what I know is that I am in search for a 2003 Honda City V-tec with the same amount of cash in hand,if you find one,then tell me.Or buy i=it for you,the best thing on wheels it is.

Rest go for a Swift VXi,you will get a nearly new car for the amount as petro cars are now a days having a bad resale value.

And if you want performance,then go for Fiesta 1.6 or City V-tec or an old Swift with 1.3 MPFI engine.

Re: Which used car for around 3.5 lakhs

@350z - I am not sure about body style (I like Sedan though), The car will run less then 350 KM/Month, And mainly will be used for weekend family trips.

@TSIVipul - Do you think the Fiesta I mentioned above is worth considering ?

Which year Swift/City/Fiesta models can I get for this budget ?

Then you should consider sedan as sedan will give you more space and also boot space to carry stuff for trips.

Honda city - 2006 - 2007 with 40K to 50k on odo

I have been visiting dealers since last few days, but most of them are asking 4.5 lakhs for 2007 - 2007 Honda City ZX with around 50K kilometers and first owner.


I have attached the pics of The ford fiest that I have mentioned above.
Please have a look.

It looks like well maintained car.
Anyways it has got Spoiler, Rear parking sensors + point
Second owner may be pinch. Try to settle this on cost part.
Wish you all the best.

Just a question here. If you have a budget of 3.5L why don't you try for a new car like say Alto or even the EON? You will be relaxed from any maintenance perpective for minimum of 5 yrs ahead? Just give a thought to this as well.

The price may vary depending upon factors such as variant / mileage etc.

- Maruti Swift VXi: 2008 - 2009
- Honda City GXi: 2005
- Ford Fiesta SXi: 2006 - 2007

Here are the pics of the Ford fiesta (And btw that guy isn't me in these pics ;)
Looks well-kept but don't simply make a decsion based on appearance. Make sure to thoroughly inspect the mechanical.

Valid point. But I think he's inclined towards bigger cars. Alto and Eon might not be as much comfortable for long weekend family trips.
