    Default New Mehran or Japenese Alto or used Cultux or Santro

    Well I am new to Pakwheels.I am planning to buy a car and i am a bit confused so i need some suggestions My budget is around 6,50,000/-, I personally was planning to buy a new Mehran VXR(CNG) but heard a lot bad about Mehran its teen ka dabba and blah blah.
    second option is japenese Alto but again no resale, no parts no reliable mechanic.
    and the third option is Cultus or Santro or Alto used but in that price i hard to find a good conditioned above mentioned cars and i dont want to go to workshops too oftenly.
    and next year i will probably sold the car since i am planning to go to England, so i am confused, dont know to buy which car.I will appreciate some useful suggestions.
    Thanks

    In your budget you should buy a davits Mira or coure more preference would be it resale is good plus it cheaper to run or simply buy Indus corrolla you will easily buy one in your budget and very good resale aswell Bol in searching welcome to pakwheels

    Resale = Pakistani local cars.. comfort = japanese + no good resale.JDM corolla is par far par better than local junkie corolla worth 2.2 million.Its a piece of crap and our wheelers are happy to buy that junk in this much price.

    Yes resale value is important factor for me since i have to sell back after few month usage, so Japenese car is out of my list, in remaining option which is most suitable for me?

    the newer the better... mehran might be less comfortable and with no features but it will be trouble free for the next 2-3 years to come.

    Plus, it'll sell faster. Can't you bear discomfort for a few months?

    add a used 2009+ Alto to your list aswell.

    and delete Santro from your list
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Wink Mehan.....

    I would suggest a new Mehran VXR with factory fitted A/C. It should not give you any trouble in a year and will sell easily once you are leaving for abroad. But I think the CNG version has been discontinued.

    Cars like used Cultus, Santro or Alto will mostly give you some trouble so its better be a bit uncomfortable for a few months but at least have some peace of mind.

    @xulfiqar and Capsat, atleast i never said Alto is comfortable, Nor is it fun to drive.

    But considering the OP's situation a very latest 2009-2010 Alto can be found in the price of Mehran + CNG + AC + Registration,

    Alto maybe the worst of the cars but is atleast better then Mehran, And a okay okay car for city travel.

    @Op, Do consider Chevrolet Joy, Its a pretty decent car too.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.
