    Question Baleno JXR

    Salam ! Brothers


    I was thinking to buy a Baleno Jxr model 2003 to 2005 . I just wanted to ask the owners of Baleno about the fuel consumption of thier rides?


    In town and on highway, is the consumption good? and any thing about Baleno performance and maintaince . because my car is used as a family car.

    it gives a gud 13-14 km/L in City, CNG goes upto 130kms a full 55L cylinder.

    Maintainence, if ure driving on petrol theres no maintainence besides oil and filters being replaced timely,

    On Cng you could face misfiring, and weak ignition coils.

    If u drive on rough roads, Baleno has a lower arms (keinchiyan) issue they need to be replaced, Bushes cannot be just replaced. (cost too much i guess 18k for Genuine ones, and about 5k for Pakistani/Taiwan ones)

    Spares are not costly, But not as cheap as a mehran/alto/coure/cultus either. They fall in the range of Civic/Corolla/City spare parts prices.


    Other then that its perfectly fine car. and the best one in its price, you dont get a 2005 diggi walli garri in that kinda money these days, Plus CNG is a bonus 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.

    Hi,

    As per my experience Baleno is very good car with best road grip in 1300cc category available in Pakistan.

    The car need to maintained carefully with all filters/ maintenance on time than it will not give any trouble.

    Its ground clearance is lesser so not suited for off-roading. In city this can easily be avoided by using 14inch rims (size lie within factory specs).

    For more details search Baleno Master's thread on PW ....

    Default I like Chinyoti's comment

    Very well explained. I've also experienced the same thing about baleno arms. We cannot just replace the bushes. If we do, same problem will appear in every 2, 3 months again.
