Basically i am looking to buy alto for my personal use in islamabad.
I have found alto which has 30k on odo and is 2011 reg, blue colour. asking price for that alto is 7 lakh. isb reg. No CNG. ( i dont need cng version anyways as i look forward to run my car on petrol)
First thing first i should tell you that i have '0' knowledge of cars, and the friend who went to see the above mentioned car has no knowledge either the only experience he has is that he also use an alto.
Car is completely clean (to my eye), seats looks almost new and interior lights, exterior lights and all the bits and bobs looks almost new to me. little tiny scratch on rear bumper and front right bumper. and a little knock of hailstorm (only one mark) on the bonnet right corner the dent of hail is very very tiny.
other thn that the engine looks very very neat and the lubricant white bottles look completely white and are not pale just like when you open the bonnet of the car of a new car you see white lubricant bottles.
Question i would like you guys to answer before i hand over the guy pay order of my hard earned money:
1- What should i look in interior which would really reflect the originality of the car? if meter revversed or anything?
2- what should i look under the bonnet which could define the health of the engine? note that this car has never been used on cng and no cng has not been installed in it and always ran on petrol and i will run it on petrol too.
3- i have heard alto has REALLY REALLY bad mileage and i asked few people they say local alto gives only 6-8 km per litre. this car is not the CNG version and has only run on petrol so will the mileage of this car be better?
4- how should i test the suspension of the car if its in healthy state and how should i diagnose the body of the car if it has been repaired or repainted? to me the car look flawless from doors and fenders but very very slight scratched on rear bumper corner and front bumper corners.
Thank you very much.
