    Default Best car for a student?

    Hello, My name is Ameer and i'm from chicago, i recently got accepted to Quideazam medschool and well since i'll be coming to Pakistan for 5 years, I really needed help deciding the right car! I came here because i've seen all these car enthusiasts in Pakistan, and you guys have a better idea of the conditions and cars in pakisan a hell of a lot better than me .

    I'm 17 will turn 18 on May 28th, so please you suggestions will be really appriciated. my budget is 2.000.000 at max but hopefully something clost to 1,700,000 is more realistic, the car can be used or new no problem, i don't really know much but my family back home owns civics and carollas, here in US i drive a g35 2005, so im more of a fast driver, but than again the pajero is a very reliable muscular car, so please help me out!!

    Thanks!

    Whtevr *New* you buy here, u wont like that..

    Accord is a good option, or i guess you can find a Mazda RX8 too in this range, luckily if you can come accross a good one... Also remember the high fuel prices, Nasty roads and traffic jams here, u wont like a sports car for daily driving here, if you do so you will have aches and sprains that will remain 4 ages

    Yes, that is a great point...but what would your opinion be for a parado 2001, i think i'll make the price rang? I'll sell my g35 here for aprox 1,200,000 and the rest 800,000 dad will give me, sooo
    you think a bigger car would be better? and the fuel, thats not a huge concern, but would i need to carry a gun with me? or put tracking in a car?

    Not true, in states we kept cars like acura tl, infiniti g35, honda accord, etc etc etc but we are still satisfied driving the Civic 1.8 or Altis 1.8.

    @poster, bro close your eyes and go for the 2010 Honda Civic 1.8 Oriel Prosmatec. It will cost you 19 or so but its the perfect ride for you and your range.

    guys thinking and taking into consideration rx8, prado's and accords are not good student car's. they're more like sunday car's (not daily drivers) coz they require alot of maintenance, having expensive parts and are all used

    Acura and Infitini are really out of your budget and aren't good daily drivers even if you have the budget.

    Yes its a good option, Luxury, comfort and power.. If u lyk SUVs u can go 4 it.

    Bt ill recommend come here, vist markets, disscuss and then chose the vehicle you want.. dont come with a mind set, u may close possilble options.search market and choose which you like. 200Ks is a good enough budget.

    Yes but i also like SUV, cuase they're easier to handle and alot easier to go off-roading on the roads in pakistan, and what did you mean maintaining the parado? here the only mantinance have t do is the oil change , otherwise no problem in my car.

    Get a corolla civic level car... Or an accord cl7 or something like that, they'll be under 20 and maintenance isn't really that big a deal... No need for an SUV or anything, there are roads here

    As far as the gun is concerned, a gun won't do anything to safe you.. its far better keep a low profile car like a corolla civic instead of a prado... and don't go for the rx8 it might be cheap but people have destroyed all of them..
