    Get a third party inspection done from a authorised service centre, it would cost around 2 to 3 thousand. OR else take a dentre and a mechanic to check the car for major accidents and mechanicaly the condition of the car.

    Other guideline wont help if you dont know how to check.

    -Repaints, sprays on rubbers etc. Peice to peice paint shade, the mirror shine bla bla
    -Suspension sounds, engine oil, radiator, smugde under the oil cap, bla bla rust in/under the car
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    There must be some shortcuts to check whether car is accidented or not.

    Well, firstly ask them to move the car out of their car porch on to the road. Now check for the reflections because if a portion is painted and not from a good painter it wont be reflecting much and the paint would be blurred. Secondly you can also stand and see the colour variation in the parts painted when compared with the original one. Thirdly tap your finger on each and every metal part of the body. You know how a part sounds if there isn't any poutine on the body (a ting ting sound) otherwise it sounds like (dab dab ) you can easily feel the difference. At last check for minute areas like the trunk, Bonnet etc for any paint deposits or something suspicious. Once your done with the car now inspect the registration book and get it check from a police station.

    if you really want to buy it, spend 500 rupees

    100 to Denter
    100 to engine mechanic
    100 to police
    100 to excise/tax office record room
    100 to buy 1.5L pepsi - since hardly a few cars pass all the tests
