BTW, anniversary edition doesnt really make a bug difference in the used car market .. watever it is, its USED !! so go ahead and bargain at the price that you feel you can buy it for !!

if possible, take it to a Ford A.S.S to get the vehicle assessed. Tell the seller you ll pay for it
He says he can come down to 2L max. Should I go for it?
My other options are a 2003 accent viva with 60k kms done for 1.9L and a skoda octavia with 80k on the odo for 3.75L. Are these price right? What about Skoda's A.S.S? Is it as expensive as Ford's?

skoda is too expensive to maintain than a ford ikon. i think accent would be cheapest to maintain .

Is it the dark green one. If it is check for the gearbox warning which appears when driving.

Well, among the three options you have, i believe ikon can be a better buy, considering it has run less and the meter is not tampered !

Accent is also okay, but then you might again have to invest close to 30K on getting it to a good level of running condition ! i would prefer ikon over the accent in such a scenario. Stay away from the skoda, it can rip you off now having run so much !!

+1 on this !! but then the accent has rum more than ikon here.. so effectively maintenance should come to equal with that !

I would put the value at 1.8L to 1.9L.

Another day a friend who was looking for used Scorpio found a 2006 SLX Scorpio for a price tag of 5.90 Lakhs in near-pristine condition with a odo-reading of 26K. Was it a good offering ?

On further finding he even found some 2006 Safaris at even 5 lakh or so price-tag.

It looks like a big loss to 1st owner who might have purchased it for around 10 Lakh or so. More then 40% loss in 2-2.5 Years !!

Does it have any extras? Alloys/music system?

I think a more suitable line would be, "Nobody wants a petrol 'anything' in Kerala". People (not the car-aware) are surprised to know that the Baleno is petrol. A sedan is by default diesel in Kerala. They look at me like I am nuts and the comments go, "You mean you bought a petrol sedan? How do you manage to fuel it?" etc.

Are you the 1st owner or bought used ? Either ways, what did you pay for it when you bought it ?
