no, it does not sound good. doors are difficult to tinker, probably you will have to replace it & repainting that section will show in a few months. 1.3 is not a great car. i would suggest you look for a better OHC 1.5.

A six year car would be definite no if you ask me. Too much hassle and price also seems to be a little steep.

No for this model.

In 2.5 or 2.7 You can get a better deal for sure.

Also if your mechanic is recommending you to go for a car which is being hit I will say Keep him out of your way.

Cheers!

1.3 for an easy ride and good fuel efficiency. 1.5 and Vtec for maximum power and a hot adrenaline flowing ride. And with some mods, it'll be all good boy!!

Dont buy this car. For 2.0 or 2.5Lacs you can end up with a very good car.
OHC, Vtec would be a good option.
From what you have posted, it looks like that the car was not well maintained.
