toyota qualis has been discontinued in india so its maintenance would be a diffcult job regarding its parts etc. things.
it is better suggested to buy an innova and you will get it but be sure it is not a taxi and accidential.
but a new car is a new car ,mostly a problem free car, it is suggested to buy a new car than a second hand run.
moreover innova is far better than qualis.

As mentioned Innova would be better anytime. However considering availability in price range mentioned, it will be worth in going for used Qqualis.Maintenance wont be problem as parts are available.

I think its not advisable for a person like you to go for an second hand Qualis upto 5 lac range. the reason mostly such vehicles are commercially used and in pretty bad shape and engine after 5-6 yrs as they r not well maintained. so if u have that price range u can opt for Mahindra Xylo which is as good in quality and space as a new Innova and very nice to drive. it will coat you Rs 6.5 lac (approx) and after all a new car is a new car u wont even need maintenance for next 5 yrs. for you i dont think a little more budget will matter but then ull be free from garage hopping which will be a routine in an used Qualis.

qualis is a trouble free vehicle with least maintainance ,in your budget u can get a very good qualis a private used vehicle the top end model with rear wiper and deffoger is not used by taxi walas it i the low end model generally white used as tais or call centre cabs which is easily available in the range of 2 lakhs,as u are an nri u will not be using the car for long so it wont be advisable to go for new car as the money lost when u sell the vehicle would be in the range of at least 2 to 2.5 lakhs.
