Default Have 1 lakh, if not NANO then what car?

To help all those who cannot get into the long waiting list for the TATA NANO, but still want a car of their own within their tight budget.

Why don't you check out the daewoo cielo, opel astra or the opel corsa. They might come close to your budget.

Used 800 / Omni is a good option (going great in this range)

May be to stretch a little bit and get a used Santro.

A friend of mine picked up a well maintained 1.6 GTX with CNG kit for 1.39 L. If a person is a good negotiator, they can pick up the 1.2 for 1 Lakh. Anything below that is difficult.

I am on the lookout for a 1.6 in the range of 1.5.

True! Also depends on the location. In Bangalore, it is not possible but quite possible in the west and the north.

You will get one after some real searching - hard to find and owners do not wish to sell

Default Maruti Zen

When I enquired to sell my 1998 Zen LX
the true value quoted price is 90,000 and I have decided to keep mine.

1998-2000 Zen Lx should be available under a lakh.
