Oh ambulances we already have two an omni and a winger.
regarding the pajero, we dont have any mitshu dealer in the state.
Plus IMO, Innova is as comfortable as any SUV.

btw, how mucn i expect for the Accent, 2004 , 52xxx kms run well kept?

You can expect around 200,000 for your Accent.
You can go with lamborghini's suggestion which IMHO is the best and the most practical.

Seriously what's wrong with the safari (or maybe Scorpio). One should get rid of the innova asap and include one of these in the garage.
In are areas of interior jharkhand, an SUV will last much longer then the innova. And, way more comfortable too.
And then the style!

Buddy you have no idea regarding the capabilities of the Innova. Agreed its not as butch looking as you Safari or Scorpio, but when the term reliability comes into the picture, the Innova beats your SUV's hands,legs,heads and whatever else down ! This thing can run for miles and miles without any complaints where you so called SUV's would be crying for mercy after doing the same amount of kilometres. This is why Innovas hold on to their values while your SUV's depreciate by 50% within the same time frame.

Doc my suggestion:

Keep Inova and Swift which either one of you can use, Omni for household use...
sell the rest.

Okay... No confusions. Lemme sort it out for you.

1st --> Sell The 800, Innova.
2nd --> Put in some more Money and get yourself a Toyota Fortuner. Even if you dont like the looks or you dont like the cars itself. Get it anyway. That is the best thing for the roads you have. It will gobble up all those potholes or craters on the road. Since it is 4x4 you can do a lil soft off roading.
3rd --> Gift me the Accent GTX.

I know, I know, you wouldnt take my word. Fine. Sell the Accent too.

Swift. Hold on to it till you finish off your emi. Once EMI is over sell it of and get a Indica Vista, best for the roads.

Okay, can't disagree to you really.

But, how can one forget the style quotient!
Dr. Abhijit owns about 6 cars (maybe 7 or 8), he would little bother about depreciation et all. He most certainly needs a swanky rides which glides too.

Solution 1:

The Innova has done under 100K kms, so now would be a good time to sell it. Resale values go down faster after 'magic' 100K.

The Accent has no real value, so just sell it off. It does nothing exceptionally well.

Keep the 800 as the errand car, and keep the Swift for yourself.

Buy a new Xylo/Innova for bro's/family's use.

Solution 2:

Sell off everything.

Buy a used/new Bolero for errand use. Will run without trouble, sip diesel, and can go/be fixed anywhere.

Buy 2 new cars for you, your bro and for family use. Both of you will be happy as you have new cars to play with! Why wait if you have no constraints?

@Vivekgk, always check the timelines of such threads : the thread you have responded to is more than 2 months old, and the original poster has most likely taken his decision.
