The advantage of sonata is its appearance , space .Disadvantage is poor resale value .If maintenance and fuel efficiency is not an issue then its absolutely worth buying.

Which model is it? if is is the regular, S20 or Gold, then the market price is between Rs275000 to Rs 375000 depending on the condition. Only the V6 is at Rs 450000 to Rs550000. In my opinion not worth buying a car which has done 65000 km. The maintenance costs will be too high.

Good solid car. Take it out for a drive and see if you get plenty of power from the engine. Take it to a mechanic and check out the compression. Do not trust the odometer reading. Indians are famous for tampering with it. 65000 km is not a big deal. This is a big car, not a motorcycle. No worries about maintenance till well beyond 100000 km. Overall, nice car, very comfortable. Cheers!

Rightly said by kumar 65k kms is not a big deal,however 4.3l is to high a price to offer.Try to get a deal at 3.5l .adios...
