HELLO, I HAVE ONE CHANCE TO BUY 1995 ESTEEM AT THE RATE OF Rs.40000. But there are full tinker work and full body painting. I think it will cost around 20000. Is it good to buy for a long use? arul

It wont be worth buying it considering probable condition and cost of maintenance in near future.

HEllo Arul,

Buying a 1995 Esteem in 2011 is not agood idea at all. Firstly as you have mentioned lot of work needs to be done on the car one more thing you have to consider is that the RTO generally registers the car for a period of 15 Yrs. which means that you will have to get the car re certified from the concerned RTO for another 5 yrs or so, so add that cost as well.

buying a three generation old esteem @70k would be foolish instead go for type 2 esteem the mpfi model by increasing ur budget by least you will be able to run the car on regular basis otherwise your day will start by calling the mechanic.
