Recommended Posts

If I were in your position, i won't sell the Vtec, its a gem of the car

""Known devil is better than an unknown angel", why to sell it and regret later.

And for family purpose i ll hunt for a decade old alto or zen and for this i will save for 3-4 months

Good suggestion!

Keep the V-tec, dish out ~50k & get a 800.

There aren't many Getz' in the market. One three year old example went for Rs 2.70 lakh.

Also the vtec is a bit long in the tooth. The mechanicals are great, but it just doesn't have that feeling anymore. The body is flimsy and the interiors are rattling away to glory.

One thing you can be sure with the Ikon and the Palio(to some extent) is that they were built to last.

They are so muc tougher than the panzy Jap/Korean cars(Kidding smiley17.gif) that are certainly efficient but they start falling apart after a few years!


Exactly why I had to sell my dear Accent. Sigh!!

No the thing is if the vtec stays' date=' we are still one car short. Which is why it must go. And there is no way I'm selling the bus.

If this is your only concern, buy a Premier Padmini for 20k.

 

Don't sell the gem 'n regret later. You won't find such gems outside.

Its powerful, FE, big, handles good, reliable, what else can you expect on 4 wheels.

 

Do take this in a lighter sense, many end up spending 20k-30k after buying a pre owned car. You are going to risk yourself by buying two.

I get your point FRG, had a City myself but after 5yrs of ownership, things got pretty boring.

 

Ikon/Palio + Alto/Spark/800 are the best options.

 

Edit: Yes, Bus + Vtec + Palio/800 could be ideal!

How much do those old Fiat's cost?

I would love to have one of those vintage beauties some day.

 

EDIT: Not just the Premier. But he posted pics of others too. They surely cant be worth only 20K

@BF: Haha, seriously do let me know if you know of a Palio (1.6 preferably) for sale. I've already started harassing subzero to find his Palio so I can buy it back smiley17.gif

 

This goes for everyone else. If you know of Palio or Ikon (both 1.6), please tell me. Also let me know if somebody wants a 2001 Honda City Vtec, 65,000kms.
