lease advice-- lancer-d vs accent crdi ( used )
i know this question has been asked many times before but maybe i can get some new opinions here .. well , i want to buy a used car , preferably diesel , it would be mostly used for family outings and outstation trips. the rest of the time it will be parked in the garage , no daily usage. any suv is out of question as my father cannot drive those.. the two sedans shortlisted are lancer diesel and accent crdi.. my budget is between 4-5 lacs.. i have heard some good and bad things about both the contenders and so am eagerly waiting for advice and comments from u guys.. kindly consider the following---
1. is going for a diesel a sound decision as mostly it will be used for outstation trips and not used everyday .?
2. i want a car that can be maintained with regular servicing and not require weekly trips to the mechanic for odd jobs.
3. kindly suugest upto what model i can get in my budget .
eagerly waiting for ur advice , plz help me out as i have to make a decision within a week or two. thanks.

If servicing is a concern, i would suggest you to stick to Accent. I am not sure but I guess lancer spares are expensive than Accent.
Otherwise, I would recommend Lancer any day. Lancer handles much better than Accent and you get lots of features in lancer that are not present in Accent.

Accent all the way dude! Lancer is a little expensive on spares and service..Power is more for the CRDi.

If your a driving enthusiast,need better A.S.S and cheaper spares then its Accent CRDI all the way.
You can get a good one of 2004 Model for about 4.5 to 5 Lakhs depending on the car's condition.
