1.65 lac seems a bit high to me.
Maybe others can advice you better.

but why a 9 year old car?

Its a steal deal depending on the condition.

In my 3 years search for 2nd hand car, I have seen 5-6 years old cars (including OHCs) which I wouldnt buy even for 50K.

So as long as you are satisfied with the condition, 1.65 is really good, I must say.

i just thought it was high.
But then a lot depends on the condition of the car.

But again why a 9 year old car?

@abhinav.gupta88 iwas searching for a zen whose price was around 1.50lac for 2000 mode so i opted for honda. i choose 9years old car as i wanted to spend less money as it would be with me for an year only

The OHC is in a league of it own... i was offered 2.5lakhs for my 2000 model Type 2 OHC (1.5Exi)... But couldn't part with it and now have no intention of selling it...

Runs and handles like a dream... miles ahead in comparison to the NHC!

Dude its a good price! the age of the car is the only negative factor...i had 99model 1.3 exi and i can say its one fantastic machine...very refined and trust worthy!

however you might want to get the clutch and the suspensions checked....
