Cars Q&A

Question
Hello All, I m looking for a pre-owned car with a budget of upto 4laks. My reqmnts are: * Decent mileage(I dont desire for much). * Decent pick-up/power. * Not looking for luxuries like ac/power steering/music system. I'd rather invest in K&N air filter & alloy wheels,if i buy a car.:-) *I wont be driving much apart frm wkends. My doubts are: * Till how many (clocked)kms is a used car good to buy(ofcourse it depends on how the car has been maintained,but still in general case how much max should be ok)? *Can a ford ikon or accent of 2003-4 model be considered, or which car should I consider(apart frm 800/alto/wagon r/getz and similar) ? *Shall I dare to go for a new micra or so?

Answers:

go for micra.
As far as used car is concerned below 40000kms any car is good as new.
Average cars below 80000kms.
Apart from this one should also consider whether the car was used in city or urbans.
For e.g Cars driven 50000kms in city are older than cars driven 70000kms in urban. The idling noise will speak about it.
Accent is better than ikon.
Can also consider i20, punto, figo, dezire, indica vista,

Hi,
In the budget rane mentioned, if looking for a used car then there are plenty of options. Ranging from maruti 800 to Honda City. Hyundai Accent is a great choice as a used car and you can get a good conditioned Accent within 3 lakh.Overall condition of the car has to be checked in person whiledoing negotiations. Help from a mechanic or friends having experience regarding the same would be of great help while doing inspection and negotiation.
