    good to see 5.6L for a fiat car!
    but IMO dealer is asking more. Do get a complete Service history of the vehicle from Service centre. anything between 4-5L looks appropriate. Do test drive and get it checked by a local mechanic.

    Hi Rao, welcome to the forum, 18.9K seems to be way bit low for a Diesel Vehicle,especially a Fiat at that one, so pls verify that properly, You check the service history with authorised Fiat Dealer and pre 2012 models are little lower on the Ground Clarence part so do have that in mind as well.

    Welcome @raghava rao to TFI!
    As others already said check the odo readings, its too less to be true. My one and a half year old Jet has ran much more than this.

    Thank you all for the feed back,

    This used car is from Jain car shopee in Chennai and they are reputed car dealers. Today morning want to verify the service History and called RDC service center at Ekkaduthangal, Chennai and their reply cannot give the deal without RC book copy, so travel back to Jain cars and got the RC copy then again proceed to RDC service, in Chennai HOT sun. As soon as I gave the RC copy they checked the History..
    Car was at service center 4 times
    3 for general service and 1 for Blue&me alarm ( alarm rectified by service center)
    For all General service oil and all filters changed. no major parts changed.
    Last service done at 18461 kms on ODO on Dec 2014.
    And lady at service center promptly told me that next service for me is at 30K kms or Dec 2015.
    NO accident on the vehicle.
    After this enquiry I was peaceful, thanks goes to you guys for telling me about this.
    Will update as soon as I get the delivery of the Car.

    Considering the FIAT resale value, the car is priced at high end,this should have been near about 4Lakhs or at max 4.25Lakhs.

    I am hunting for Used Fiat cars for past 3 months, and can see that used fiat diesel car price has gone up, 4 to 4.5L cars can find but the ODO reading is more than 60k to 100k. I missed 2 cars last 2 weeks one was Punto diesel emotion pack 2010 38k ODO
    and 2010 linea diesel emotion pack 35k on ODO. Punto sold at 4.5L and Linea at 5L. both cars in very good condition.
    I checked my car interior and exterior and engine very good and odo very less.
    Nowadays its very difficult to find cars like this.
    Gentle man from the Dealer told me that many people asking for old Punto and linea I don't know why..

    As the service history is clean and car is ran less, its should be worth paying 50-60 k more. Check if you can seal the deal around 5. All the best.

    If the odo is genuine.. Which u just confirmed. @ 18 k its almost new, the engine has just set in. And at 3 + years you need not worry on any modification voiding the warranty .. I would say anything around 5lac is a good price in chennai ..
