    Default Honda civic 2011 or brand new Honda City (Basic)

    Hello dear pakwheeelers
    I am in a critical dilemma and i need your opinion.
    I need a car, i have for life of me owned corolla but since its very common these days with taxis and rent a car, i wanted to switch to a different car.
    My budget is limited to 16 lacs.

    In this range, i can get Almost new Honda city or 2010-11 model of honda civic

    My uncle was in the same boat but he chose city over civic as he said"Yaar cheez ni hogi tou sukuun hoga"

    Now what do you guys suggest? Should i go and buy a new city, or shouldi go with 2011 Honda civic?
    Pros and cons

    Civic is definitely better. But your uncle is right "New is New". If you find clean ride go for it. Btw Civic can be heavy on your pocket.

    If its 8-10km/l in city, I wouldn't mind. My commute is not that long eitherway. But i want a hassle free car.

    i been threw this discussion a lot so let me help you on this .

    1st even if you do get a clean car with low millage but there always be some kind of doubt in your mind.some idiot friend who has no idea of a car will tell you "oh yar teri gadi pai yeah masala hai and you wont be able to sleep next morning you will go to an idiot mechanic for little money he will say your friend is right ..

    2nd you will have to get some kind of fixes in the car maybe little bit because you never know how the previous owner drove it or what he did with it ...

    And now if you get a new car you will be in piece of mind for atleast 4 years you would know what the car is what kind of problem it has .so i would say get a new car if you want worry free time .

    no doubt civic is far better but a worry free sleep is a big thing at-least for me ..and second of all lets be honest who has time or hassal to go to mechanics every day and buying a 16 lak car you would atleast end up spending lak more and dude trust me civic spare part is not cheap ,every time i go to a mach i always have my fingers cross and prey yar koi nawi khap na nikal aye ..and honestly i would prefer a brand new cultus over a civic atleast its brand new ...

    If you have an ability to keep your car fit, then at least go for civic, it is little heavy on pocket but when it is fit it will bring a smile on your face every time when you drive it.

    Again depends upon the cars mileage and condition
    A well kept car won't be requiring any major service except lube/fluid change filters etc
    at most would require a new battery and tires
    Just inspect the car throughly

    You can easily find a good 2011 model Civic. 2011 is not a very old History. Go for it. There is no comparison b/w Civic and City. just make sure that a car is not major accidented. Just buy a good car, spend on oil, filters, plugs etc replacement and you are good to go.
    As for maintenance, City isn't cheap to maintain either. Both cars are roughly equal in maintenance City being very slighty cheaper though and this offer is limited to few body parts only....

    Unless you end up buying a really bad car, car wont give you any major problem. If properly maintained, 2011 civic could almost prove to be hassle free for next few years...
