@350z about OHC I came across one 2001 model done around 50k and the asking price is 2.75 which is on higher I felt [thinking]

I take your advice no for opel astra.

and OHC means old Honda city I think, am I correct?

Look if are concerned about resale value, you had better stay away from Lancer since it has low resale value.

Hey Maximas,


For all driving pleasure all you need now is an Ikon man.

If you dont worry much on Mileage, comfort & blah blah blah, just grab a Ikon.

You can get a diesel heart at 2.5 Lakhs & petrol at 2 lakhs easily.

Another option, go for Esteem. OHC is good, but you wont get that for 3 lakhs.

An used OHC can be quite easily bought under Rs.3 Lakhs. For Esteem - I'd avoid. Usually Esteem's are not the perfect long term car. It sure is a Maruti but tends to give some minor issues like in power windows etc.

Hey Maximas sorry to hear that you had to part away with the diesel rocket!

Anyways coming to your new car , since you have had troubles servicing the old car why not choose a car whose authorized service station is near your home? Am saying this because i see your only buying a car for sheer driving pleasure.

If car is in good condition! I would tell 2.4 Lakhs will be a good deal.

What is the model ? Dx, Lxi or Exi

Yes Vibhor,

Provided the car is in good condition, there are few city owners here who claims 3.5 lakhs here :)

So what are all the authorized service stations near your home?

Yes you will sell the car in maybe a year but used cars may give trouble anytime so its better to learn from your mistakes is what i feel.

Another option I can think about is the Elantra. It makes a perfect value for money buy in used car market, and maintenance won't cost a bomb too. If a reliable Hyundai workshop is available around, You might consider going with this car.
