Hi,
Considering the usage it will be worth buying for 3.0Lakh.Recommended to check with service history as there could be chances of fitting new instrument clusture. As alternative recommended to check out for Lancer petrol.

you have to compromise with mileage and service with ford icon as it just gives 10kmpl on city roads.
one of my known has same car and instead using it, he uses other as it is always thirsty for fuel.
he too bought second hand in 2009 originally 2006 for 2.75lakhs, loaded with big alloys and tyres, heavy music system, lcd screen and a one condition, but as mentioned drinks a lot.
if you wanna buy it then try breaking to 2.5 lakhs , and not more than it.
