    Default Sell Alto And Go for JOY .....

    Guyzzz i have decided no no no not yet decided to sell my AltoVXR CNG 08 model and m thinking to buy 0meter Joy instead ..... What do you think is it the good idea OR not i have asked 5 Questions about JOY and m satisfied with it PW's JOY owners replys....





    Q1.How is its performance in Petrol ???


    A1.Performance on petrol is amazing... but economy is compromised. Nothing like coure or alto, but economy on gas is great. Also AC on CNG in traffic jam is weak so I use petrol for that.


    A2.Performance is good better than Santro.


    A3.much better than alto...as the engine is a modern one.





    Q2.How much mileage in 1Liter???


    A1.Getting around 13.87~14 km/Liter in city without AC and with AC i usually gets 12.87~13. it

    all depends upon how you drive. if you keep on going around 60~70 Kms you receive better

    consumption such as 14.37 or 15.86 (city) if you drive around 90~100 km it will decrease to

    13.87~14.


    A2.Around 12 Km to 14 KM





    Q4.Is it worth buying for 4-5 years ???


    A1.Absolutely YES.


    A2. YES.


    A3. It is worth buying for at-least 7~8 yrs as the automobile prices are climbing rapidly and the government is not keen to reduce it. although the resale value of the car is low as compared to suzuki





    Last Question only one answer


    Q5.How is its performance in hilly area have you visited any please share your expreance ???


    A1. I have tested the car on Pir Sohawa on 2nd, 3rd and 4th gear to check the performance of its engine. On 2nd gear it climbs easily with out AC. rest of the guys may share their experience. I have seen the car climbing to Nathigali/Murree without issues.








    NOW ONLY THESE 2 POINTS LEFT


    1.Is JOY better then Alto in performance on plain and on hillyarea both CNG/PETROL ???


    2.Is this decsion good or not ofcourse i will loose money is this worthy or not ???

    If resale is not an issue and u keep your car maintained its a lot better than Alto.
    I have Chevrolet exclusive (800cc) 2005 model.

    It has never been to workshop since 2005. Just maintain it properly and it will be a joy to drive it .

    And for resale also consider that JOY is discontinued. Spark will be locally assembled now in place of JOY. Since I can only comment on Karachi's market I am pretty sure I will never face any issue of parts.

    alto vs joy:
    alto has

    a digital tripmeter.

    seats are uncomfortable n less room

    phatphata carby engine that sounds like that of a rickshaw. whereas joy has a really impressive engine. if u see it n hear it getting start u ll be convinced in buying the car

    pathetic brakes.

    gear is harder or might not be very swift.

    manufacturing quality n durability - that i ll leave for u to decide cuz ppl smhow dont care about it at all.

    Climbing nathia gali murree is nothing amazing. Even mehran easily climbs there. Went to nathia gali on mehran when there was snowfall. If a mehran climbs to the peak on a slippery road with dead tyres, what's so amazing for JOY

    Not good for hilly areas, at sudden bumps it will touch the ground because of soft suspension, otherwise it is much much better than Alto and Cultus both. It shoots like a rocket and is smooth like a big car.
    First try to find a little used car, it wont break Any money if you are not satisfied with it,
    if you go for new, stay ready to sell it for 1 lac rupee less if you even want to sell it the same day, maybe in the evening its not like your alto

    My experience is totally opposite to it, Ali Bhai. I have experiences of driving it from isb to murree and most of the time car was fully loaded (5 persons + some stuff) and car drove up steep hills superbly. I was driving on petrol so can't say much about its performance on cng. I think it has no issues in hilly areas.


    Not to mention I have exclusive which is 800cc (joy=1000cc)

    sir alto 1 liter mein 11 km kartei hai within city on petrol so its economy is better then this...
    Genuine CNG of PS cant be beaten by anyother company
    alto has got very cheap maintainance..
    every mechanic can handle the engine cuz its understood by them but joy is called flop by them....!!!
    AC is best of ALTO...!!!
    best part...alto kharei kharei bik jaatei hai...while joy would take months to sell!!!
    aagei aap kei marzi..!!

    i was in exactly the same situation as u a week ago...only that i wasnt worried about the car climbing hilly areas. but joy had been discontinued. i couldve gone for the spark but the dealer told me they had managed to sell only 35 pieces yet...and they will not produce it locally. then i tried to get my hands on one of the last few unsold santros,,,but the dealers were charging 780000 for them instead of invoice price of 729000. everyone advised me against it because it had gone out of production too...and because of resale and parts issue etc. in the end i had to settle for the alto...even though i didnt want to it will be delivered to me next week. but i hate people's attitude towards cars that are not suzukis or toyotas in this country!!!

    Quite a lame excuse to go for obsolete technology. By the way its got a simple efi engine only not some hi-tech hybrid *** F1 engine and efi engines are in Pak for sooooooo long (santro, corolla, civic, city etc).
