I am not asking about the specific car. I am asking Ford Fusion in general, would it work out?

@Archish, you will have to weigh the pro's & con's. Car is spacious, and good. The 1.6 engine is adequate for this car (car is a little heavy). Good GC. You should not have any problems about where you drive it. Check with @Ramkya1 about how versatile this car is.

My main concern is service-ability of and spares for the car. I hope Ford A.S.S is not your only option. My suggestion - make sure you have a good service outlet before you buy the car.

Bargain. Remember, re-sale value when you want to sell it will not be much.

And please remember the regular things about how to buy a used car. All the best.

Archish - I personally would stay away from a used ford; have heard enough horror stories on expensive parts. This car already has had 2 owners.

Respectfully disagree.
Sailing that boat, no problems so far.
As far as expensive parts go, thats also olden days.
And you will get a better deal on a used ford too.
Most problems, expensive one, arise when people try and get the ford fixed outside, and something goes wrong, and then take it to A**.

Archish: Just make a thorough thorough THOROUGH check of EVERYTHING!
2.55 seems a bit high for 2 prior owners.

Vikram, I think the price quoted for the Civic is a fair ask.

Looks like a good price given the fact that a new civic will be twice as much.

^It looks like a fair price for Civic. Somehow there are a lot of Civics in the pre-owned market at the moment.
I found a Civic with twice the reading on odo (everything else is almost the same).
Asking price is 7 Lac (negotiable).
I think if seller is in a hurry, then 6.5 should be a feasible.

single owner, full service history,
insurance for next two three months only, no alloy wheels.
decent condition?

What is the right price range for a 2004-2006 scorpio with 60k kms in Bangalore for both old and CRDE models? I was planning to buy it from a dealer.

Have been a regular visitor to T-Bhp classified, checking for updates 3 or 4 times a day for the last month or so. Nothing in my budget of 1.5 to 2Lac range interested me. But today saw something that interested me very very much.

Its a 2005 1.6 Plus ABS Ford Fusion ... http://classifieds.team-bhp.com/buy-...d/Fusion.html/ ... Have owned a couple of Ikons before and have a good opinion about Ford. But have absolutely No Idea about Fusion so I am here to Get Idea.

I want your advice about the car even before I see it. Is a 6 year old Fusion + ABS worth 2.55 Lacs? Would it give me a hassle free ownership option?
unless you are confirmed of spares stay away. Fusion had part problem even when it was in production. If your car gets into any physical damage expect to wait for months to get it back due to lack of spares.

IIRC, the '08, 1.6SXI didn't come with factory fitted alloys.
