Well there are many other similar threads.

Mods please do the needful.

With your budget it has to be OHC without any other choice, if you want reliability & comfort.

Of all the three cars you have mentioned, go for the OHC.

1) IKON : Ford A.S & S. not the best. Spares are slightly on the expensive side.

2) Lancer : Nothing wrong if you are able to fetch a well used piece i.e. one that is not abused. This is quite tough. Generally people wont let Lancer be what it is and go on to modify them the way they want. Avoid these samples.

3) OHC : Quite reliable and the spares support from Honda is nice. Peace-of-mind and nice powertrains.

Do a TD and show the car to Service Center before plunging in for the deal.

Deni - Old high end cars come with a baggage of high maintenance. You need to be prepared to spend at least 30 K a year on OHC an IKON and about 50 K a year on Lancer.
