1 lakh should be a GREAT price if you can manage it (assuming that you are the seller). 95 esteems in great condition are going at 80k here in chennai.

Normally 80k,
if you are senti & attached to that car, 90k,
if you are down right crazy about that car & do not mind the baggage it might bring along, 100K, but thats it, anything more & you are too darn crazy.

Yes.

I would recommend you to go in for some old Honda city which you can find for about 2 Lakh.

Since the esteem is on the verge to be discountinued, does it still hold good for the resale? How about 2 yrs down the line?
Guess people will be more tempted to go for new Esteem after seeing the new 68K doscount.

60/65k in mumbai ( considering its in good condition ), But you want to buy such a old model. Will suggest yo to wait for some more time and increase your budget and get some young vehicle

About 65-70k in mumbai. Esteem is always a good buy, but then again its a 13yr old car. Just get a decent overall health check up done before you finalize.

raaj .would suggest you to put your money else where , i sold my 96 esteem (mint condition ) 2 years back for only 1.20 lakhs ,reasons -lack of power steering and front seating posture.

believe me its no fun driving a esteem without PS.

Thanks Dude!!! I had a 96 Carb Esteem which I sold some 10 months back
I had fun with the car....I agree on your point on the power steering piece...But I am planning on RSC and you can enter with Carb esteem only...and most of them are w/o power steering
