Suzuki Mehran has been a victim of Auto-critics for ages. Despite all critical analysis, Mehran has been one of the best-selling cars in Pakistan since its launch back in 1989. I understand the conflicting arguments surrounding Mehran, but it is an admitted fact that this car has maintained a great sale-resale demand due to its longevity and localization. Though my opinions tilt towards sarcasm whenever this topic is raised, nonetheless I will admit that this car is perhaps the most affordable car in Pakistan. Don’t believe me? Here are 4 reasons which will highlight the good points of Suzuki Mehran.
It’s Easy to Maintain:
Admit it or not, Mehran is quite easy to maintain no matter which part of the country you are using it in. JDM users often complain about the availability of qualified mechanics to get their cars fixed but this is not the case with Mehran. Almost every mechanic in the market can fix your Mehran against a very nominal sum of rupees. Moreover, the after-market parts of Mehran are cheaper than that of Yamaha’s YBR 125. You can easily find and get your damaged parts replaced from anywhere in your city. The rear bumper of Suzuki Mehran is available for around 1200-1400Rs in Lahore. In comparison to 660 JDM’s, Mehran is highly affordable and maintenance friendly.
It sells like hotcake:
Despite the fact that Mehran is a mere ‘Box-on-Wheels’, it has a great resale value. My personal experience of selling Mehran says that it is just like liquid cash i.e. ready to be liquidated at any instant of time without the hassle of finding a wealthy customer. If you want a car that can sell in a day, Mehran is the best choice for you.
It is a perfect student car:
For students who are always broke, Mehran is the best partner to your student life. It isn’t a burden on your pocket in terms of mileage, maintenance, and repairing. You can easily afford Mehran in a limited pocket money.
Never gets outdated:
From the past 30 years, we haven’t witnessed any significant upgrade or change in the interior or aerodynamics of Mehran. Even if you drive a 10 year old Mehran and get its front grill replaced with a latest one, you have converted to a new model of Mehran.
