I am looking forward to buy an used car to drive arounnd in Bangalore city and occasional highway rides. Given that I am a new driver, my emphasis is on mastering the art and daily office rides (17 km one way). So what I am looking for is a car which doesn't make a hole in my wallet, not much maintenance, good fuel efficiency and handling.
Naturally I narrowed down to Maruti Suzuki Alto Lxi (2008-2009 make) and was searching my way through Gozoomo, Quickr, Olx and Maruti True Value. All are quoting me a rate of 1.9 - 2.5 lakhs for 2008-2009 make vehicles which has clocked and average of 50-80k in odomemeter. Is this rate justifiable (Various used car sites are valuing it at just 1.2-1.3 lakhs). How much I can negotiate it down to. What specific things I should look for when I go for a test drive.
