Question A reliable used car under 1.2L

We are looking to buy a second hand hatchback. Budget is around 1.2 L.
The only major criteria we are looking at is: Reliability. This implies the car should have good after sales for atleast another 5 years and largely trouble free (read cheap spares).
The only car that comes to my mind is 40-50k run M800.
Is there any other alternative i can look at?

Will I get an MPFI Zen for that price range?
Again, MPFI Esteem with that budget?
And won't the Nano with AC cost upwards of 1.5L on road ?

@Priyank- Yup i think you can get a non MPFI Zen at that price. I had sold my zen (non MPFI ) 6 months back for ,around that price. You can also try giving a shot at Santro. I would recommend a Zen or a Santro.Try searching in carwale.

Hi DCEite on thinking your requirement I feel reliability isn't something synonymous with second hand cars. Maruti 's spares are cheap. Make sure the car you buy is in top notch condition with all the services done and all.

Hey why not wait for the A-Star, price?? I guess you like it already(avatar)

Even a first lot santro is an option and will have good A.S.S.

There was a launch in Radisson Noida yesterday. Prices seem to be in the range of i10, the base one pretty above 3.5. But as per the visitors, the best class interior in the category (there were only zxi models though)
