Hello All

I am planning to buy a used car , I have shortlisted about 5 cars-

2 premier padmini
3 premier 118ne
4 tata estate

My budget is between 10000 - 20000 rupees

a car in or near Mumbai is preferred

I will be driving this car

I intend to keep this car for a year or so

I want to know where in Mumbai can I get the car in this budget ?

thanks a lot

Maruti 800 could prove to be more reliable among the cars you have shortlisted.

118NE - if anything, for that gearbox. Not to mention its servicability by any mechanic shack

My almost 15 yr old still gives a decent 15 to 17 kmpl (70% city and remaining highway driving).

Also I guess the fit n finish of M800 is much better than the padminis. I guess my bais toward padminis is due to BBay taxi guys.

For 1 yr, dont go for diesel. The headache and maintenance cost will be an eye opener.

M800 anyday. Getting spares for the remaining can get difficult. If somebody assures you of spares availability, do go in for padmini. 118NE is stil a no-no. When you sell the vehicle later, m800 is atleast sure to get you another intelligent person like you as a buyer. ;-)

IF suppose one extends his budget by a wee bit to 30-35 grand can one get a decent (Mechanically sound) first batch 93 or 94 ZEN ?
