Question Hi..Help need in buying a Used OHC/Accent

Guyz,

Am a rookie in this forum and I am in search of a used Honda City or Accent. Am looking towards any 2000+ models.
Please let me know which one would be a better buy if my budget is around 4 lakhs..?
I really want an OHC, but tell me if she is high on maintenance..?
I will have 60/40, City/Highway driving requirments

If you really want an OHC, go for it. The Accent is a different car altogether and you wont get boy racer goosebumps from owning one.

Not at all. Running items on both cars are more or less similarly priced.

In used car market Accent is way cheaper than OHC. The info I got is OHC will not cause you much of maitenance problems & you get THE driving pleasure from it.

Decide whether you want to go for 1.3 or 1.5. If it is 1.3, you will be able to get an 2001 model and 2000 model, if it is 1.5. Iam talking about clean car with low mileage (below 40K kms)
