Guys I have seen a Ikon 1.6 Nxt 2005 model, it has done about 50000kms on the odometer. Can anyone please suggest as to how much should I pay for this car @ location - Gurgaon.

And also how much would a Ikon 1.3 Flair 2005 model should cost which has done about 32000Kms @ location - Gurgaon.

Both cars are first owner driven and in immaculate condition.

i think you need to mention the month of purchase as well, since they could be 9 months to 21 months old. if it is a year old, 1.6 is worth 4.00 L
& the 1.3 is worth 3.75 L. but 50 k in 2 years is also a bit too much, dont you think ? this car might be headed for a lot of replacements.

i dont know about HYD, but in chennai, the price would be around 2.00-2.25 L, give or take 10k. i am not an expert though.

Being an ikon user since 2001,let me summarize the car in brief.
Pros:
1)Best handling .
2)strong build(i'll vouch for it anyday)

Cons:
1)FE:My 58bhp 1.3 endura doesnt give more than 9kpl in the city which works out to over Rs.6/km and a gas conversion is not possible(almost).
2)Brakes-below average
3)Resale value :(

Myths:
1)Maintenance is expensive.
A:Not if u stay away from ford authorised service centres.Their mission is to bleed every ford owner dry.Genuine spares are available in the local market and cost a fraction of the service centres' prices.So, find a GOOD mech/service centre and u're fine. Moreover, the car is pretty reliable and i spend <10k per year for service&spares(5yo car).

All in all, except for my fuel costs , i love this car for everything else.
