Default 10 month Alto Lxi available for sale

Dear all,

One of my Neighbor bought Alto Lxi ( X-fun) 10 months back, he is 40+ years plus. He tried learning driving the car at his best, now he can drive but not as a expert driver, he has damaged the car from all the sides and also got repaired also, even front windshield is changed ( must have spend 25/30k on repairing work ), now there are new scratches on his car,

Yesterday he told me that he can not afford to learn driving on this car, he wants to sell his car as he thinks this is un-lucky car for him ( car has clocked 5784 km only and has Remote lock system also, Car is MH-02 registered ) I was looking out for another car for my wiefy, shd i go for this car ?? how much shd i shell out for the same ??

Regards,
Jitendra

Yes. Go in for the car, as far as there are NO major accidents which would have damaged the chassis

wow 1 lakh for an alto, thats a nice deal,though i think you should get it company checked to be safe! not trying to say your Neighbor is holding back any info about the car but since he's new to driving maybe he damaged something he does not know about, then again even if he has 1 lakh for an alto is a great deal! congrats

WOW, 1 lakh for an Alto which is so new...you are lucky maan, as long as there is no major accidents it is fine...you can always repair the body which has the scratches and dents....

Once you get the car, reset the ECU and start driving...
Excellent deal...

Thats a jolly good deal you got there nicejits. Just to play safe, check if all papers are clean, no accidents like hit and run, no outstanding loan amount, service histroy etc. Post some pics of the car.

Thx a lot for your reply guys !

Chked with my local mechanic ( guy who maintains my car from last 2 .5 years) he said need to shell out appx 4 k to get car into showroom condition this includes body work / penting / small screw fitments / polish

I am getting car service from Authorized service center, as still some free services are pending

I know my Neighbor from last 6 yrs he is gentel man so i haven't chked with RTO ,, This car basically will get used by my wife for her daily commute to office 16 km ( to and fro)


Regards,
Jitendra
