    Default Mark X & Honda Accord CL7 or CL9

    Ok i've been a pakwheeler for a bit and seems like people give out good advice here..since i am heading back to Pakistan after 10 years of slavery away from my country i need to know what i should get as a vehicle in Lahore.I like the MarkX but i heard you cant get parts for it and my budget is 20Lakhs and i still cant figure out the difference in a Honda Accord CL7 &CL9 as we dont have them in Canada.Now is Mark X better bang for the buck or a Honda Accord.
    Thanx for your reviews.

    Mark X and yes you can get parts but they gotta be imported from Japan.

    Difference between CL 7 and CL 9 is mostly the 2.0 vs 2.4 engine. CL 9 has a few more options like full leather seats which the CL 7 does not. CL 9 Type S is the highest grade of CL 9 and would cost you about 1.85 million rupees.

    Good luck

    Thanx a lot guys...my budegt is actually a max of 20lakhs.Surf is kinda outta that situation as i have driven and kept the ones here in Canada and they dont seem like fun.But the Prado's look nice but i dont want to go that old.I think Mark X is a nicer vehicle but i am just worried about parts and maintainence.Is Accord easier to handle in Pakistan?

    @krossenz il reffer u to buy markx as its far more superior then cl7 n cl9 coz m aslo working with the musik just drive car show n have driven many cl7n cl9s but they cant be compared with mark x currently markx is the best selling car between the range of 20-25 in mkt as there is 250g n 300g with diff options available u can get 250g which is 2500 cc triptronic 6 speed for like 20-23 lacs rs n 300g for like 25-27 which is 3000 cc
    m attaching the pics of my mark x which was in the comparison with my friends cl9 on THE MUSIK JUST DRIVE but later on after driving ma car he sold his cl 9 n bought the same 250 g even the same colour but he didnt get elecrtonic seats as in ma markx we both get it for 20 lacs each 2005 m aslo driving prado tz which is 3400cc but markx is the best thts ma opinion

    Mark X is fast gripping the roads these days though Honda CLs are more common and cheaper

    Prados and Surfs share a common chassis I doubt you'll have any more 'fun' in a Prado than a Surf. Go for a Mark X, you won't regret it.

    @ krossenz:

    I would recommend NOT buying the max you can afford right off the bat. Trouble with these 20 lakh cars is that once you buy them, you can never sell them unless, of course, you incur a BIG loss. Buying a 20 lakh car in Canada is, of course, a total different story.

    Since you are returning to Pakistan after 10 years, there is a strong possibility that you may not like Pakistan anymore and may want to go back to Canada. So I'd suggest that you buy something that you can sell very easily and lose the least amount of money on. May be a Toyota corolla XLi. If you decided after a year or two that Pakistan is for you and want to stay there, then you may decide to sell your Corolla at a minimum loss and buy anything you want at that time.

    2 years from now, you will be able to buy used Camrys over there in this price range as well.

    Another thing to keep in mind. Lahore is a very unsafe city. If you drive that expensive of a car, people may think you are very rich and may be a good candidate for being kidnapped and asked huge ransoms for. that is one of the reasons that in Pakistan some multimillionaires prefer to ride a common car even though they may be able to afford something that costs 10 times as much.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Salam

    @kross I think what @salmankhilji suggested has sense in it. instead of buying a 2nd hand MarkX for 20-22 lakh why don't you buy a brand new Camry, cause I think maintenance of imported used cars is a head ache
