Question Suggest a Ride...

Hey all,
I'm planing to buy a car... I don't have much knowledge about what to look for when buying a car. Need help....

Also i can't spend much money, as I'm a college student and the car I'm buying is of my own hard earned money lol, I can only go for 1 to 1.5 Lks, so I'm plaining to go for second hand car. Guys kindly assest me which car is good within' that range. Plus, Can I go for a second hand Zen(old model, 2002 to 2003) or Santro???


Any help would be Greatly appriciated... Thank You...

Hello Demon,

You have a valid query, in the correct section. I wish you luck in finding your car.

However the title of your thread is misleading. It means to spend a lot of money on your existing car and bling it up, putting things like fancy wheels and sound systems etc. You don't have a car and it doesn't sound like you have money to burn.

Demon - you can get a good condition Alto for that price. I dont suggest Zen or Santro as it will be more expensive..

Best of luck!!

Proxima is right. You should be able to get a good condition Alto in that price. Zen wont be a bad choice either but a good condition one will overshoot your budget slightly.

I doubt if u would get a 2002-2003 zen in the price range which u have mentioned. Like evryone said why don't u condsider the Alto, gud mileage, low maintenance and a gud car too...

Ya alto will be a better option as its spare will be cheaper than the zen and mileage is also better when compared to the zen

A Zen 2002-03 or a Santro 2002-03 would cost you more than 1.75 lacs if they're maintained well, in good condition. You have two choices, the 800 and the Alto out of which Alto is better.
