I dearly wish I could develop the confidence to buy a used car. I see the used car section every week, and some of the cars are really tempting in my budget (5-8 lakhs). Any advice on where in Delhi I could go to (would prefer a Camry/Accord only)

@Ramsagar...top speed i touched was 120km on Bangalore highway yesterday.FE is a bit of a damper-6.5kmpl

@Vasu..My experiances with used cars have been successful till date due to excellent and passionate mechanics that I have.If you can get one druid then you will get all the required courage.

WOW, those wheels look perfect for the car. Congrats Ram that Corona seems to be looking much better now than when I saw it in the flesh all those months ago.

Cheers,

Lovely car hillram, the color is just so nice. Must say this car has been lovingly maintained.

Happy car. I noticed in your thread that you were searching for a Golf. Did you check the two cars that were listed in the classifieds some time back.

here is my fathers 1983 corona its a first owner car that has served us well over the years and still continues to do so. the corona is bone stock down to the last detail. I think the only reason why the only reason why it is in this shape is because my father never let any one except for him drive it until recently when I was finally given permission to drive it. This corona has etched some fond memories in my families and I hope it continues to.
