      Here's the specs and running plot:

      Model- 2006
      Kms Done- 50k
      Engine- 4Cyl, DOHC, Manual Transmission, Diesel
      Asking price- 4 lakhs

      I would like to know few things:

      - how much is this vehicle to go for?
      - is this a good deal? maintenance
      - how are used safari's maintenance and how much will it satisfy me?
      - how much will it cost me in keeping the beast always ready for hunt?

      Help me as this is in ardent.

      Thanks,
      Mike

      Price seems to be reasonable, have you seen the vehicle in person?? Is the ODO genuine??

      Adding few Safari owners for their comments. Godfather hrag anubhavt JJB kairalee mastersquall

      Thanks camchennai for your prompt response.

      Planning to visit the vehicle this weekend and also if you can help how can I check is the ODO reading is genuine. How can I make it si not tampered/manhandled.

      Looking forward for the Safari owners' comments(referred by you)

      Thanks,
      Mike

      I am non-safari owner so I could think only of this method.

      If the ODO is genuine he should have service history of the vehicle provided if serviced in company service center. Service history should have the details about KM and parts replaced which can help you in identifying the ODO reading and condition of the vehicle

      mike if the vehicle is a 2006 model then it is a 3litre dicor and not the 2.2 VTT.

      Please comfirm.

      Maintenance will be on the higher side , as i have heard.And as camchennai mentioned, do go through the service record and enquire at the service station where it is serviced about the vehicle.
      They keep service history on their comp and can give you the details.

      You can inquire at any TASC with the regn number - Tata's service history is stored on a central system not a local system.

      I don't buy used so not sure. You can check my thread out where all maintenance has been mentioned (except the 130K km service)

      You can go for this deal if you know the person's way of handling the car and upkeeping the vehicle as mentioned in Service book. You will have to be choosy while going for a 2nd hand Diesel engines especially SUV/ MUVs. All the best!
