for a 2000 4.2 is a lot i think. can u show us pics of the car. wna see how much work has been done. 52000km is a huge thing in this country. is the car in good condition to drive. lotta things ull havta keep in mind while buying. whts the owners reason to selling it when he put so much money into it. drive it up and think it over. new lancers now arent that exp. as well, but then u dont get the mods on it. hehe. be careful try posting pics.

Well Jesal 52k kms for a 4 year old car is ok, not too much but maybe more than the average of 10k kms that cars do in india in a year. At 13k a year its just bout ok.

4.2 is quite a bit for the car. See if the guy can get it down for 3.8-3.9. Dont pay more than that since lancers arent exactly as cheap to maintain as say Citys. Also check for gearbox and clutch wear since i am sure this wud be one car that will be enthusiastically driven. Also see if the tuning done on the car is well balanced since tuned cars that arent done well can have a lot of problems and need constant care.

Other than that i dont think you would go wrong with the Lancer. Happy shopping pal

Thanks a lot guys for ya reply.My sis has driven the car and she says it in fab condition.....except for the one thing that there is sum amount of knocking in the engine,i guess due to the throttle........
and i was just calculating that a 2000glxi wud cost 3.3lacs approx.even after sprucin it up the same me i wud cum up2 the same or maybe a bit more.........
the guy who owns the car is also a friend of mine and all the modifications have been done by by close pal........
so these are few of the reasons i think i shud go for it!!
wot say!!

is this car owned by Karan Shah of Daulat petrol pump.,or is the work dome by KS motors.he is a very nice guy but.......
i am sure but had heard from someone else that he had a major work done on one of his lancers engine as there was some problem with his KKK turbocharger.
so just check again.
if this is the same car ,then i think u shud avoid it .
anyways just heard..,not sure.

Hey.....Well,this car does'nt belong to Karan Shah.....although he has done the work on the car,but nuthin as such.The car wot u talkin bout is a silver 1 which had a few complications.....And i asked him bout this lancer,which he said is a FAIR deal although a lil expensive.It shud cost around 3.8L as it does not have insurance and therez sum wok in the Aircon too........
Newaz have dropped the idea of buyin it.....Might just go for a stock lancer and modify it myself........Maybe that soundz goood......aight....
Laterz!!

Yeah good call gTr.

I would personally stay away from pre-owned modified cars,
and the fact that your sis heard knocking just means the engine isnt great.
