Cars Q&A

Question
I have a budget of 3 - 4.5 Lacs and after checking out all the hatchback cars I have come to a conclusion that those car a waste of money for us. As in our family of 5 we are approx. 6 ft & 6 ft + so, none of the cars solved our purpose. We all have good built so even we require good space. At the end I have the only option of buying used cars in sedan category like Honda City as one of the option. So, my question is that car good in terms of mileage, performance and maintenance? What all things should I consider before buying it? 40,000 - 50,000 kms already driven should cost how much? Please help me...!!!

Excellent choice of car! You should be able to get an excellent Honda City - used - for about 3 lakhs. Unfortunately prices vary wildly depending on where you live. Delhi and Mumbai seem to be the cheapest places to buy cars and the choice is plentiful. Usually, a single owner indicates the person did not hesitate to pay about 8 lakhs for a Honda City, and perhaps would have given it the required maintenance and care. If the seller has more than one car, chances are, it is well taken care of. Just the odometer mileage alone is not an indication of how much wear and tear the car has sustained. But for a Honda, even 100,000 km does not mean much, so you can perhaps take a mechanic with you, pay him Rs.500 to check out the car you are considering. It will save you all the headaches. The Honda City is outstanding in terms of performance, mileage and is virtually maintenance free. Great car, and will serve you well. I can totally undestand the comfort your family should want to enjoy spacewise. Please also consider a Mitsubishi Lancer too - great spacewise and very well made car.

When you were looking through the hatch backs? Did u try the new Vista drivetech4? I have seen the car and being a 6 footer myself, I think it is spacious enough for ur family! Try to take a test drive, then u will be able to make a better decision. It falls in ur budget too. have a look here - http://bit.ly/cjR3H3

Thnx a lot to Mr. B.S. Kumar, Kashyap & Ashwini for your valuable inputs. Here in Mumbai I'hv found couple of cars at Mahindra Used car centers and all those are in the range of 4-7 Lacs. So, would like to know further about those centers prices as well. I mean is it more than the market price?

Hi,
For the requirments mentioned, Tata Indica Vista would solve the purpose for its spacious interiors and good performance. However Honda City would be a great option as used sedan.You can get a good conditioned used City for around 4.5 to 5 lacs.
