Default Opinion needed: 2000 Fiat Siena 1.7TD

Hi all,

I intend to buy a Fiat Siena 1.7TD and have managed to locate a seller. Here are the details of the car.
Fiat Siena 1.7TD
Single owner, bangalore, purchased in 2000.
ODO 1.32L
Regularly maintained, Entire suspension and shock absorbers replaced september 2008 at Prerna motors (though he claims that there was no problem with the original, but was recommended by the mechanics to replace them). New set(5) of tires in Sept 2008.
FE within city 11 with A/c, 18-20 on highway.
Price quoted is 1.75L

Please provide your opinions on the same.

Stay away!!! The rate is exhorbitant for a 9 year old FIAT that has run 1.3L KM's

For 25K~50K more you can get yourself a Petra 1.9D which has clocked less, newer model, better powered and looker. There was a fully loaded example listed on Cars India | Indian Car Prices | Buy Cars India | Car Buying Guide for less than 2L.

Haha. This is hilarious but then arent antique pieces priced specially.lolz. This car can at most fetch him about 50-60 K no more since its a sienna. In case you want to stick to old Fiats buy a Petra but then be advised that the spares are costlier than your monthly food budget.

The price quoted for the Sienna is way too higher and that too it has run 1.3L kms . I am sure you can find much better cars for the same price. Just stay away from that guy.

Uno and the initial Siena's shared the 1.7 TD engine. Top end version of Uno of same heritage go for around 70-80k. So I guess the seller is asking about 1 Lac more. Ask him to come back to ground and also tell him, he owns a FIAT and not a Maruti or Honda

I agree with the others. 1.75 is way too much for a Sienna, also considering that this has run more than 1L.

1.75L can fetch you much better buys. Is there a specific reason on your choice for a Sienna?

Agree with others on price. Note that this will be a use and throw away car as parts become rare
