Recently i have came across a diesel Getz around 3 yrs old & has clocked around 40k owner is quoting around 3.5l might have to spent another 15k afterwards, will this be good deal ?
I have read many post on diesel getz on the forum, though its a very much fun to drive Car the grey areas here are
1. Poor Beaks
2. Minimal equipment list (Like no rear Wiper & demister, spoiler etc)
3. few niggling issues some rattles & stuff
4. Lower Fuel efficiency as compared to ritz & swift
5. will be a problem to sell it after say 3-4 yrs.
6. Might face a problem with spares later on.

Required a expert advice as i am looking forward to buy a diesel Car (preferably a Hatch as I already have a Baleno & Dont want to part with it)

Will it be wiser decision to buy a Petrol hatch & then convert it to CNG ? Need an expert advice on this.

Around 13-14 lakhs for a car in excellent condition.

Sameer

Considering new one now a days cost around 26, 15 lakhs for a 40k kms done CE and 4 years old, is too much IMO

You should get 2008 model for 13-14 lakhs at best.

Sameer

I would suggest that you do not invest in a car like that unless you know clearly what you are getting into. Ikon 1.6 is long gone and there is no guarantee for service support. Parts are very expensive IF you can source them. If you still want to go ahead, a lakh or less would be little to lose on a car like this.

I am no expert, but I can tell you one thing. The Getz is discontinued and as such, there is a good chance that you will be left in the lurch in procuring spares. It also depends how long you plan on keeping this car. 4L is too much in this scenario.

IF the car is clean and has service records (I am sure a BMW will have) and the insurance is clean, 40K in 4 years for a 320d is good enough. I am sure it is worth 17L give or take 2L. (this I know from personal experience being friends with a BMW sales person).


P.S. I am talking Chennai prices

Ok, Thanks for the heads up. But with so man ikons on the road, I would've thought parts availability wont be a problem?
Anyone currently owing an ikon, please confirm this? I know the maintenance cost is going to be high, and it will gulp petrol, but I cant bring myself to buy an alto or something like that . Any other models worth investing in the 1-1.5 even 2L bracket?

similar vintage lancers, accents, Citys, balenos too.
Look around.
Pick up a dealer list and call up.
Quikr, ebay, our classifeds, you will be able to find some individuals too.

Was there even a CE model back in 2008? I thought the CE was launched in early 2010.

I really think you should have taken up the 2008 325i offer for 10L. That was a pretty good deal in my eyes because you wanted to keep the car for a significant period of time.

A 4 year luxury sedan has to depreciate by amout 50% especially when it is soon going to become a previous gen model. If you are on the lookout for a 2008 320d then you should expect to pay somewhere around 13-14L. Anything more is the seller's gain.

Sir, with all due respect, I would disagree. The IKONs parts are still very much avaialble. Even in Ford A.S.S without any waiting period. All the body parts, lights, electrical, everything is still very much avaialble, and even in stock with the local A.S.S . Only thing is, if you want year specific parts, you'll have to wait, but not more than a week or so. For example, I wanted old model tail lamps, and not new ones. The old ones costed ~1200 per peice, where as new ones cost only ~900 for a pair.

Can you please post atleast a couple of parts comparo with a car in the similar segment? Perhaps the Accent? IMO, the only car cheaper would be the esteem, but frankly, in sense of ownership, esteem and ikon are a world apart.

wantarangerover, parts availability for the IKON, as of now, and I expect for a couple of years more, will NOT be a problem.

The 1.6 can give you soo much fun that, even now, with all these new generation cars its tough to match!

IMO, if the car is in excellent condition, go for it. With skyrocketing petrol prices, you can bargain harder than ever.

FE expected would be ~10-11 in city and ~14-15 on highways.

I meant the 1.6 critical parts, not body parts and tail lamps which are still the same mostly for the Ikon TDCI.

That is not a fact, just your opinion.

Are you sure that is for the 1.6 Rocam and not the flair ?

Fuel Pump: Readily available
Ignition coil: Readily available
AC Parts (Evaporator coil, condenser etc...): Readily available.
Suspension components (Lower arms, ball joints, shocks, springs etc..): Readily available.
Rest of the 1.6 critical parts are engine components. Well, if there is any issue with these, god only help you, and I'd advise NOT to buy the car. Engine overhaul at A.S.S will cost you nearly 1 lack.

However: The ROCAM is a pretty tough and durable engine. I have my odo @ ~1,20,000 and still runs like new. So, if one picks up a used example with below ~50k in the odo, he should be OK with the critical engine parts.

However, the smaller and more insignificant parts are which you find difficulty in finding. Like switches etc.. That's why I mentioned body parts.

Yes Sir. I have a Flair, and get ~12-13 in city and ~17+ in highways. Most of the '06+ Flair models in the forum get the same average.

This is not the right place, but I am actually trying to prepare myself for such a scenario. How do we go about with this? Can you elaborate and include some do's and don'ts? Do we remove the tank and dry it?

Good to see first hand experience being shared here. However sometimes spares are not available in one region but are available in another region (e.g. north/ south).
So perhaps it is safer to check with local market as well to confirm on the availability.
Ikon is a perfect car - if only they came with ABS even as an option.
There is an immaculately maintained Ikon in our office (KA registered car) and it still looks like it has just been driven out of the showroom. No dents or scratches.
