Hello Mr. Darshan, It seems like with your amount of running, you would be better off not spending extra money on a diesel car. As a bread and butter, maintenance free car, the Xeta doesn't score very well. You can get an excellent Santro, Zen, or other small segment car for 1-1.5 lakhs. You can spend the extra money saved on petrol, and enjoy a smooth drive. Resale value of the Xeta is bound to be lower than these other trusted performers.

Tata second hand car is not a good choice.Fit and Finish ia a big question even in the newer Tata Cars so i will not recommend a second hand Tata car to you.

Expert`s comment:

With Xeta the average mileage is low at around 10KMPL as mentioned.However considering that its a newer model and available in good condition the offer seems to be genuine one.If you go for Santro or Zen etc you can get model of 2002/03 for the same price .The Xeta will solve the purpose for your requirment.If mileage of around 2 to4 KMPL extra is the main criteria then it will be worth going for Santro.The New Spark LPG wil cost at around 3.0Lac but comes with good warranty backup.
