Can somebody help?
Go to this link and select the Zen who's specs you are interested in looking at : Maruti Suzuki Zen in India - Prices, Reviews & Photos - CarWale

EDIT : Here is the specs for Zen LX model : http://www.carwale.com/research/maru...tions-291.html

The one in the link is the newer old zen! The 99 model will be the carbureted version. And IIRC, some zens were 3 cyl (Not sure which models and when)

Exactly. A car for your wife should be reliable, and a 17 year old is definitely not gong to be one. Also, maintaining it will be a real pain. I can assure you, that it will give you more trouble than the Santro AT you just sold off.

Or, is there a specific reason why you want the 1993 Daihatsu Charade?. If no, then IMO, you could go for newer examples of say Alto, Zen for the same budget.

Thanks for the links prateekm. I had already gone thro' these pages but I am not able to conclude whih version was launched when.

For example, whether May-1999 Zen is Euro-1 or Euro-2, and so on. Even the current owner is not sure.

Need an advice on my Zen Estilo Lxi model

Car model is Mar 2010.
Make is Zen Estilo Lxi with K-series engine, power windows only in the front.
No audio systems, ac comes default in LXi

Car has been used very sparingly( about to touch 1900KM) since I use my SX4 mostly.

Rear bumper needs to be replaced.
Slight, but visible dent on the backside.

KA registration. How much can I expect price for this?
If I get some idea, I would like to put it in T-BHP classifieds.

Main reason for selling this is that I am moving to a new apartment and for 2nd car, I need to shell out 1750000/- for parking.

Thanks in advance,
Warm regards,
BR
Whats was the ex showroom and onroad price when you bought?

you can expect more or less (~10-15K) of your ex showroom i guess

I am looking at buying a used Ford Fiesta 1.4 TDCi SXi. Its a 2007/3 Kerala registration (KL 7 BE) first owner car, which has run 45,700 kms. Its a white color car and is avaialble through a delaer, though the negotiation would be with the actual owner. The dealer would charge a 2% commission on the car sale value (10K, which I find huge)

I have no clue why the car is being sold. I ahve not been able to see the car in person yet, but the pictures looks good. I wiould see it on the weekend. The delaer is quoting 5.35 lakhs, slightly negotiable.

Is this a good buy? How good is the reliability of Fiesta, I would keep this for atleast 4 to 5 years? please let me know valuable suggestions.

@Basil,IMO AFA price is concerned if you can negotiate the car at around 4.8-5L then it will be a good purchase keeping in mind that the car is in good condition(after having a TD)

It's way too much. I shouldn't be more than 4.75 at all, including dealers commission. BTW...I just checked the classifieds and there's this super-looking Verna 2007 for sale: http://classifieds.team-bhp.com/buy-...ai/Verna.html/ Browse it only if you like it as I really love the car and i think with some 20k-25k down, it's a better bet than Ford Fiesta. Hope it's still available.

What price can be expected for the following car in Trivandrum?
Esteem LXi - 2005 January.
Run 24000+ km.
light metallic pinkish colur.
Used by old couple, driven by a driver never allowed to cross 60kmph.
Just two minor scratches on the rear bumper.
Suzuki leather seat covers.
No ICE.
Tyres still look like brand new (but nearly six years old)
All services done at Indus MASS.
A diary with all expenses on the car upto March 2010 including fuel expenses and name of petrol pump availabe.
Only drawback - boot has been repainted as the OE spoiler (plastic) broke off leaving two holes on the boot and that was patched and painted.
Selling because they have other cars and getting in and out of the Esteem is a pain.

Thanks for that link. I had seen it, but avoided as its a Verna Petrol. I am looking for a Diesel Verna/Fiesta. Thanks anyway.

Hi All,

What should be the right price for this car considering the present condition and spares availability.

40K is not bad. Just check up the mechanicals thoroughly, and put if good, put it through a Custom job for the exteriors.
