Thats too much to ask for
a 10 year old car for 1.5 lakhs. I dont think so.

Better try for cars in around 2002-2003

Default Honda city 99 model

In Chennai we have got a Honda city 99 model for only Rs.50K. Ned to mention the RTO code it 09 and the registration no is 9999 . We know the prevvious owner very well. The condition was worse. It is given for total body tinkering and painting and engine overhauling :-( So expecting a bill around 2 lacs

Hey, i think the car is not properly kept by the owner.
Better stay away from it and ask your brother to look out for a second hand Esteem,if he wants a sedan in this price range.
90K on the ODO means that major repairs gonna come soon.
Also 1.5 lakhs is too much considering this Honda is 3 generations old.

A 10 year old car brings with it quite a few baggage. Clutch, Suspension, AC, Alternator etc etc.

This car should have around 75K price tag. 1.50 lacs is wayyy too much

Thanks to all, who advised me. after reading your inputs I have told the honda car owner a big NO.

I may go for a brand new Indica Vista(Petrol).
Once again Thanks to all...
