Answers:

Yes, that true to a certain extent.
Spares that probably get damaged after around 1-1.3 lac kms are very very expensive.

Answer by Abhijit 10 October 2010

Partially Abhijit you are correct. However its not the engine but other parts of the vehicle which would require replacement; as is the case in all vehicles.

CRDI & in general diesel engines are much tougher than the Petrol Variant's. From the engine side of view there wouldn't be much worry. The fuel injector is the one component (from a diesel engine perspective) would required to be overhauled.

However, on other front's its a different story; you may if its not already replaced might have to re-do the suspension; wheel bearings, disc's if they havn't recently been replaced;

AC (mostly a gas refilling should be sufficient), PS Motor - to name a few areas which might require a closer inspection

From a financial perspective; u may expect to invest 1.3-2.5L on a CRDI Accent which has been driven for over 80K kms... Anything over that is not worth it; since just around the corner u may have expenses lined up for another 1L. This goes for buying any car done over 80K specially ones which are over 4 years old- specially if its to be used for residential usage
