The car offered seems to be in good condition considering usage.If the same is available for around 2.25 to 2.5 lac max then it will be best selection.

the best value for this car is around 2.10Lakhs. you should check the vehicle before purchase. clearly check the engine, body, paint, glasses etc. Indica xeta is a good car.

Dear Mahesh
You are about to purchase used second hand car model TATA INDICA XETA GLG model (2007 model).

To best of my knowledge and experience in mid segment of disle and petrol car, I would like to suggest you that NOT to purchase Indica Petrol because it's maintenance is high and there are lot of problems with this varient.
Indica is successful only in disel , petrol is failed one even it is having very lower price.
You may get Disel Indica 2007 model @ Rs.1.5 to Rs.2.0 lacs.
I request dont burn your fingers because I have seen so many people who is getting an Avg abt 7-8 Km in AC and 10 in Non-AC. and with lot of maintenance.
disel will give you least 18 to 20 Kms per lit, and cost of disel is low comparative to petrol.
Even if u sell out same after 3 yrs you will Rs.1 lac but in petrol few thousands and I am very sure for same.

So once again I request to not burn your fingers.

with best wishes and regards

Xeta GLG is top end - A/C , Power steering , Power Windows , 1200 CC Petrol.
For :- Very Spacious Car , Cheap parts , reasonable fuel efficiency in city ride. approx. 11 - 12 with A/C.

Against :- Low value from people's point of view.

If your driving is less than about 30km. / day , Petrol is a better vehicle.

Indica petrol is not liked by people & therefor you can get very good deal on this vehicle.

Try to ask the vehicle for upto 2 L than it is a steal. The seller may not get very many buyers for petrol Indica but Vehicle is good.
