I would like to buy a second hand Petrol Sedan car in Kerala within 3-3.5 Lakhs ruppees maximum. Reliability is the main key factor needed. Roads are very bad having potholes and gutters so too much workload going on suspension and moving parts. After searching some found out these cars
1. Toyota Corolla first gen run around more than 1lakh kms almost everyone
2. Hyundai Verna 2008-09 models run around 60-80K km
3. Honda City second generation model (dolphin like bonnet) run around 90K km.
4. Maruthi SX4 run around 75K km.

Which option should i go for providing i need car for atleast 5-8 next years. So spare parts availability is needed. Also somewhat not too expensive parts like that of Vento.

Hello,

Avoid
> Hyundai Verna - Its suspension was soft and spare parts are expensive on pre 2011 make models
> Honda city - Lower ground clearance of Dolphin shape car at 160 mm

Now in between Sx4 / Toyota Corolla - will pick Corolla due to even unmatched reliability, ground clearance and a very good market
Just ensure to get car suspension, AC, Tyre condition, Service history duly checked before making a purchase call

Hope should help !!

Thank you. I think am going for SX4 considering
1. Corolla middle option here is either first generation 2006-08 model costly one around 3.50-4 lakhs and corolla Altis costs above 4.50lakhs but SX4 top end model I can get 2.50-2.80lakhs Rs .

2. Corolla if not costly, meaning around 3lakhs has already done 1lakh-1lakh 50k kms.

I hope it's ok to take SX4
