Update:

BP and myself did look at the car. Its pretty well maintained, though it has run 85000kms. Some minor touch ups here and there. Both of us were pretty impressed. I offered him 1.8 which got settled at 1.9L. These are things which we thought had some issues
1> Tyres need to be changed (which I had anyway planned)
2> Good Servicing and oil change
3> Some minor touch ups with good polishing
4> Mayb some minor work on the clutch

and thats all + 3 Bhp more .Interior was in a too good condition with leather seats. BP mentioned he didnt feel any difference with his car when he drove it.
Now just waiting to grab the keys..........till that some wheel spins in my dream

IMO 1.9L for the car is a steal. the car has been maintained quite well and does not feel like it has run 85K kilometers.

Awesome! That is an absolute steal. Even if you do need to overhaul the engine in a year or so (worst case scenario), you'll be well within budget.
Congrats

First an alto goes for 1L and now a 04 Baleno for 1.9L. Shucks, why don't I get such deals?

I had seen an ad in the papers 2 months back for a 2005 RS - going for 6.5

Come to Cal, buy a car, drive it back to Bangy. How much would it cost to register a Calcutta Baleno in Bangalore ?

RS is not my type of a car .

I think its in the region of 20-25k, not so sure.

04 Baleno with about 85k would go nothing less than 3L IMO. I hunted quite a lot of first gen Baleno's dating as back as 2000 but none were available under 3L. This was a good year and a half ago.

Planning of a good business model . Get good deals in Kolkata and sell it Bangalore. Only hurdle would be the state registration

Default Re: Does buying a used Baleno make sense?

Sorry for this reigniting this thread after long.

Would a used Baleno with CNG be suitable for a daily drive of 80-90 kms? Will it be able to sustain it? The car already would have done 80-90K kms.

It will not be advisable.
Balenos have been extinct since quite some time. Also, spares are expensive.

It will make more sense in getting a good Esteem or an Accent.

Both these sedans are CNG friendly.
