@Ratheesh, Am not convinced about all the points you have been told of.

1. Take VIN Number / Veh number & check in T.A.S.S for service history. You will then get to know if the running is 90k / more.

2. Stock tyres were often Bridgestone S689. The year & month of manufacture would be stamped on the tyre side-wall. Check it out. The stamp should be about 2-3 months before manufacture date of veh. ( A good guideline only)

2a. No guarantee that these were the same original tyres that came with veh.

2b. 90k running with the tyres is possible. My OE Bridgestone S689 on my Sumo Victa were changed after 95k

2c. Like @Swiftnfurious said, tyres that have run 90k cannot have 50% tread left.


Can you increase your budget ? I had come to know of a good one for about 6.5L recently. (approx 2008-2009 model)

Hi

How much one should expect for end 2009 Swift VXI clocked around 12K on Odo Mumbai registered car
And
2012 beginning Liva G petrol clocked around 18K again mumbai registered.

Out of these two which one should be picked ? Considering Vehicle will be primarily used to learn & will not hit the highway any time in coming six months
Any additional pointers are welcome.

Dealer will always quote way too low prices. If you can find an individual buyer, you can easily get upto 80K. The Santro is still very much in production & in demand. If you go with the dealer then the exchange will be hassle free & the dealer will arrange for all the formalities, but then you stand to loose at least 15 to 20K. Choice is yours

Try to get loyalty bonus, exchange bonus and some freebies for your new car. Also try to raise amount to 70-75. Don't make any urgency from your side. Let them come behind you. I am sure you will be able to get the better deal out of this.

Why not something from MSIL? Old Alto, Zen, WagonR, Esteem or even the humble 800. Otherwise few other used cars that you may find at dirt cheap prices are old Accent, Ikon, Corsa, Lancer etc. The options are endless. What is the budget you have in mind?

Please stay away from the palio, the amount of time you will spend on maintainence will make this vehicle qualify as your primary vehicle. Hyundai / Maruti should serve your needs well.

Also quoting 2000rpm

Don't know how to multi-quote through a iPad

Well, I had a zen and santro earlier but did away.

Ok, let me add one more criteria, "high seating"

Wagon r wld be fine but I was thinking of around 50-60 k +/-

The only high seating car with low maintenance and probably good condition is Nano. You can find 2011 models with 10-15k on odometer at this price
Finding old Zen in this cost is rare, you won't find good Wagon R at this price or even a Santro

There is no offer on the Grand.There is no support from Hyundai's side for loyalty & exchange bonus on Grand & Xcent at the moment. If I was buying an i20, my Santro would have been worth 30k more in exchange.
I am getting 70k from the dealer(forgot to mention in the earlier it's an XP, base model). I'm okay with it. I don't have the time and I don't think the effort is worth the extra ~10k I can get if I sell it privately. The dealer is going to facilitate the transfer of my 50% NCB and I can keep the car till the time of delivery (2 weeks). They did throw in free seat covers.
Plus, they asked me to get a third party insurance worth 1.5-2k for the Santro at the time of hand over, since I am transferring existing insurance. Is that the norm?

Iam in look out for a small Automatic for my better half ( I10 or A-Star ) . I have a deal from True value for A-Star auto (3.2L with 37500km ) . Checked the car personally and i felt a big vibration when slotted 'D' , this was not consistent though ( 2 out of 5 times i tried ) . Now iam little scared about life time of a torque converter boxes . should i look for a less run car , may be < 20k kms ? or this is very specific to car i checked ?!
