    Default 4X4 Gurus Plz Help Buying Surf

    Hello Everybody,

    I am looking to buy my first 4X4, that is, Surf 96-97. I really don't know much about 4X4, but I am inclined to by Surf for its looks, durability, brute power and cost.

    The dilemma I am facing is whether to buy a petrol machine or diesel. My usage will include:

    1. Drive occasionally (once to twice a week in city)

    2. Very occasional visits to off-road or long drives (once a month to once a quarter may be)


    A friend of mine who is in auto-sale business suggested buying a petrol machine, because diesel now a days got more expensive than petrol and diesel machines require more maintenance, noise and vibration are other un-desired features of diesel autos.


    I currently have 2005 XLi, in extremely immaculate condition, which I am looking to sell before buying Surf, the nature of my work is that it has done 35K KM and has been driven once a week for only few kilometers.


    ALSO, I live in Karachi, please advise the most reasonable price range for the beast, thanks!

    @nomi1234, sorry if I got your wrong.

    @Offroad, thx a lot for your great input.

    @laparwah, thx buddy!

    @Voyager, thx a lot for very detailed and useful info about the beast I am going to fall in love with.

    @SuhaibKiani, thx a lot for your interesting views.

    @LRDefender, thx for the fuel average estimate.

    @DesertDevil, thx for your input, and yes I would like to have a single vehicle to be used for both the purposes, on-road and off-road. I do have 2 other light cars to take care of kids' schools and domestic works. So Surf will mostly be used for on-road and off-road enjoyment.

    @CaptainBlack, yes I would strive to get SSRG, instead of SSRX, thx!

    @parapilot, thx for your input buddy!

    @Stonner, can you plz send me more detail and pics of your Surf on the email address I PM you and thx for the great insight!

    Thank you all for your expert insights!
