    Hi friends,
                      I need a valuable suggestion from you in buying a used diesel car.Keeping in view of my elders health I thought of taking a used car(to fit financially) so that it would be useful whenever they need to go out and at the same time to run it under taxi for fewer times or distances to overcome maintainence cost and fuel budget.
                     I need a car with some what low maintainence cost compared to other.If any other car other than above cars is also welcomed.I need your valuable suggestions from the point of  Maintenance,milage,performance,comfort,long run performance,which one would be better to run as  taxi,resale value,etc...What ever your suggestions are heartly welcomed.

Indica V2 Diesel - particularly when Zen Diesel is a piece of history now.

Also Indica makes a better cab than a Zen Diesel. Even otherwise also, indica diesel as on date is a better car than Zen Diesel - maintenance wise also it is lesser than Zen Diesel.

Pay special attention on rego process as you want to use it as a cab.

Regards,

Prasad

Indica Diesel is definitely better than Zen Diesel.  It is very spacious, comfortable, sturdy/strong & is fuel efficient (17/18 in city & 21/22 on highway) - just right for long drives/run. In fact, it's popularly used as taxi, therefore.  Maintenance is also low (else it would not have been used as taxi).

You can also consider Indica Turbo - it is virtually as good as petrol car - but will cost you little more.

Indica Diesel is better than Zen Diesel, for the reasons explained before. New cars are definitely preferred over the old ones - if your budget permits.

In case of a old Indica - go for a one that is preferably not more than 3 years old and not driven more than 35/40K.  It may cost you in the range of Rs.2.50 to Rs.2.75 lac - depending upon the version of the car, its condition & the city you are located in.
