Hi guys,
This is my first post here. I'm from bangalore and currently stepping into my PG program.
Currently looking for a second hand ford ikon.
Which model?
What's the expected cost?
Where to buy?
My budget is around 3.5. Maybe I can extend it upto 4lakhs.
I donno. So, I need some help here.
Thnx.

hey powerrage
nice to have you here
im from mumbai but out here you can get an 2001 ikon 1.6 zxi done 30000 km with alloys and fogs and spoiler and all the power stuff for 3.5
look for similar deals there , you may find some interesting deals from brokers or from the paper or even from sites which house a second hand cars list ..........

make an add in free adds as well as get all the issues.. u will find some genuine buys.. try ford dealers they might also have some decent trade in cars..

car bazaars hunt around the city during the weekend u can see loads of options.. dont jump into any buy, take it to a proper mech n get it cleared then only pay up..

Theres one in Bangalore posted in www.indiacar.com today - but take your time, there are plenty of them out there so you can afford to walk if you see a problem

lamborghini, thanx for the help.
jaggu and ajmat, thanks to u guys too.

I'll be heading to the ford showroom(metro Ford) here in bangalore by this weekend. But I have a question for u guys if u could only suggest.

Question is: suppose I find a car, u guys suggest that I should take it to a mechanic isn't it? Currently I donno any mechanics for ford here. Should I go to some unknown mechanic? Is it OK? What should I ask the mechanic to check for? General checkup? Sorry if i'm dumb but just want to make sure.

Thank you Tom for the support. I can come to Naga Theatre surroundings, when I find a good car I will contact you. But I do not stay near Naga Theatre, put up near basaweshwarnagar. If you check your emails regularly, drop your email so that I can contact you when I find my car. Thanks again man.

Hey, thanks. I will go to him if he can give me an idea of market place for sure. Can you mention to me the name of that guy as well as the garage? Also can you tell me where else to look for(anyone reliable that you might be knowing)?Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
