CRDI wasnt around in 2001. Was introduced late 2002 if I'm not mistaken.

i think cRDI was launched early 2003 ...somewhere around the NHC launch ...
before that they used to have the Peugeot TUD5 engine diesel engines in the Accents.

4 lakhs is too much for a Accent D which has clocked 57000 kms. As far as I know, the Accent D didnt do too well in the market. You could get one for as less as 2.5-3 lakhs or maybe even less.

And if the broker has told u its a Crdi, he's either ignorant or he's trying to con u. The Crdi was introduced in late-2002.

Like others said...the accent crdi wasnt there in 2001...it must be the old DLS model. 4 lakhs is a bit too much for a 4 year old car with 57000km. I think 2.5 lakhs seems more like it.

accent CRDi was launched in india in october 2002 and a 2002 model should cost you around 3.70-3.90lakhs as the resale value of the car is very high and very less cars are available in the market.

That IS cheap!CRDi's can't had for anything less than 5L in Kerala....for a reasonably maintained model anyway.I bought the first CRDi in Calicut,way back in Oct 2002.It still runs like a dream,but I have got enticing offers above the aforementioned 5.

checked the vehicle out it's a dls with a crdi badging done by the previous owner, the broker corrected himself before i could say anything.

the cheapest accent crdi in the market is an 2002 for 4.75 non-neg and the cheapest accenbt dls in the market is for rs: 3.50 for a 2000 model!!!

the resale for diesels is way tooo high in the south.

Very correct, and thats because diesels sell most in the southern states. The stereotype image used to be White Dhoti-Highly Modified Diesel Ambassador, then it turned to White Dhoti - Diesel Ford Escort before moving on the White Dhoti-Opel Astra TDi and then the White Dhoti - Diesel Lancer and finally White Dhoti - Accent CRDi.

In between you have the likes of the White Dhoti - Diesel E Class to the White Dhoti - Indigo diesel and the White Dhoti - Black Scorpio and White Dhoti - Black Safari to the White Dhoti - Black Endeavour...yet to come across White Dhoti - Black Terracan, though there are plenty of White Dhoti-Mitsubishi Pajeros and White Dhoti-Land Cruiser GXs....

Skoda Octavia Tdi is usually found with 'Son of White Dhoti' or more recently with 'Son-in-law of White Dhoti'.........

You see, White Dhoti is very cost conscious in a funny sort of way. White Dhoti doesnt mind shelling out 10 or 20 lakhs for a vehicle for the comfort it gives, but White Dhoti is very conscious about running 'cost per km' and is not so enamoured by slick looks or 'image'. The Skoda's regular service costs in excess of Rs.5k per 5k kms, sometimes going up to Rs.7.5 k. That adds Rs.1.25 on an average to the cost per km. White Dhoti would therefore prefer the comfort of a petrol if the cost differential is lower.

Statutory Warning: This logic has not been developed by me. I get this from the numerous aged White Dhotis in the family and in the club when I get back home. As Rudra says, something comes with time...

Son or Son-in-law of white dhoti gets the car free of initial investment, so they dont mind paying the higher running costs...
