Lausannois Posted December 21, 2012 Report Share Posted December 21, 2012 Whats your Budget - Rs 8.00L Kms driven monthly - 400 kms Bodyshell - Sedan/SUV/ MUV City/Highway split - 90:10 Max No.of Passangers - ___1___ most of the time Boot space Importance - Low Usage by - normal Ownership - City Safety - High/Medium Prime requirement - Ride Softcorner'd Manufacturer - Any German manufturers OK so here's the situation. I'm helping my father with advice to replace his current car. He has a budget of aroudn 8 lakhs (more on this later) and he doesn't mind buying a used car in good condition if he can find a better deal for it than buying a new car. He lives in Bangalore I'm not longer living in India so I'm not too familiar with current situation there. One of the first questions is what is a good resource to look for used cars in Bangalore? Is it better to go to a used car dealer or search online or maybe somewhere else? How realiable are they? My brief search online lead to some used car websites. There I was able to see that there are some good deals on sulekha classifieds, carwale etc. Here's my conundrum: 1) Looks like there are some good deals on Skoda Lauras and Corrola Altis. Are these reasonable buys for 2007-2009 models? Is maintenance a problem? 2) There are also Merc C-Class from 2003-2005. Is it a real hassle to maintain these cars? What are the pit falls with such a buy? 3) If he streches his budget to 13-14 lakhs and gets a used BMW-3 series, is it really worth it? Are the maintainace costs too high? In general is it a big risk buying used in this price range? Thanks for the help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
