zen has good resale value and the above mention price for a low mileage zen 2002 model is good maybe 5 k and it would make good deal

7 year old Zen, 2nd owner, balding tyres, no more than 1.2L, maybe 10-20k more if you really love that car.

@ Manikjeet

This is strange a 7 year old Zen for 2 lac and 4 year old Esteem for 2.5 lac, small cars(esp maruti) retain their value much more than bigger ones. i have seen people asking as much as 1.5 lac for 2000-2001 zens.

Sold our 1999 zen with 60,000 on the odo for 1L. IMHO I guess even 2.1L is on the higher side. Bargain hard and get it for around 1.75L(maximum).

Its strange but it has simple explanation Zen is more in demand in Chandigarh and Punjab as its cheap to run and maintain and looks better that a esteem and zen is very popular with the college going crowd

so its demand and supply thing

2 yaers back i got a 2006 zen Di for 3.75L and if i sell its today it will fetch 3.50+ easily as its just 28k on the odo

1999 must be a carb so it fetch a lesser resale so you add 3years + mpfi+42k+ model change with little changes and its a VXI(most imp) = 2l easily

The car has done around 60k, running on second set of tyres(suspension tuned during the tyre change). I might upgrade the tyres to 185/65 R14 in the near future. Battery needed replacement, we have put in Amaron pro(6k). The clutch was a bit hard. I might change this as well(recently, a fellow bhpian got it changed at the A.S.S for around 5k)

raj.
hey...i think you have paid more i'm having accent crdi 2005 may model and driven 105500km and the best offer i had till date is 2.7lakh in coimbatore from direct party and the dealer asked for 2.5lakhs.

You are right Punjab is Zen country! (off late it is also Swift and Verna in sedans). I see so many of them on the roads that it seems every third person has a zen, swift or verna.
@ Zen D , how did you manage to find a 2006 Zen D, even in 2005 Zen D was scarce when I went for booking Alto I enquired about it but I got a negetive response that it will take 3-4 months or is being phased out.

Default (Pre-owned) Palio 1.2 NV vs Santro vs Ikon 1.6

Long story short, I'm going to be in India for a while and need a super cheap beater to cart around town peppered with a 50km daily commute to the office. Here's the three cars I've looked at and got verified by my uncle's trusty mechanic:

1. '02 Palio 1.2 ELX NV: 58K on the clock, Rs 1L, no problems
2. '01 Santro LP, 100K on the clock, 80K Rs, brake pad's gone out but the seller's assured me that he'll take care of that
3. '02 Ford Ikon 1.6, 48K on the odo, 1.1L, excellent condition

Basically, I'm looking for the best compromise between a trouble free car and an exciting ride. All three cars have strong engines and barring a few visual defects (scratches etc.), there's very little to fault with either of them. In addition, I need something that I can resell 4-6 months down the line without losing significant moolah.

I'm leaning toward the Palio because it probably is the best suited of the three vis-a-vis mileage and a bit of sportiness. However, locals tell me that the Fiat and Ford suffer from freakishly priced parts and spares and that the Santro would be the best bet from most angles.

Since my daily mileage will fluctuate between 50-70kms (maybe even more during the weekends), what do you suggest would be the best bet of the three cars? I need to seal the deal in a day or two since work starts this Thursday.

Cool! So its between the Palio and Ikon. Both fun cars to drive. How long are you gonna stay for worrying for spares and replacements ?

Tough choice. But on the whole, I'd go for the Ikon. Sportiness is unheard of as far as the Santro goes so its out. However, if you're reconsider the need for an exciting ride, this is easily the winner. The Pal is a 1.2 which is not sporty again. The 1.6 Ikon is the only one which will put a real smile on your face. And since you'll be selling the car in a few months, spares shouldn't be an issue anyway as long as the car is in good condition.

What about fuel economy on the 1.6? I'd hate to have to refuel the damn tank every day. I think CNG might be a possibility on the Ikon.
