    Default Suggestion required for purchasing a car

    Assalam-O-Alaikum brothers

    I have recently sold my 1991 Lancer and extended my budget to 370k. Which sedan should i buy. I don't need hatch back, I need a car with trunk as my family is big and we need trunk to put some luggage.

    Please suggest me some good vehicles in this range, below are my priorities.

    Comfort
    Good for Long driving
    Maintenance Average (not too much)
    Economy Average (No issue but must not be gas drinker)
    Resale (Don't care)
    Must not broke down every day.

    Cars which i have selected are

    Civic 95
    Margally 97
    Sunny 94-97
    Lancer92-94
    Baleno 99-00

    any other suggestion are welcome.

    Also please guide me that if i go for a very well maintained civic, will it serve me well and on high way khi-lhr-khi or after that i have to replace its engine ? and also please tell me how much cost diff between Margalla and 95 civic spares. Some one said me Civic is costly to maintain. Also if any one selling their sedan in this range in Karachi with Karachi number plate Please reply me.

    Thanks

    2. Car suspensions are ok but bushes are bad, how much cost for all 4 side bushed including labor and any preferred mechanic in Nazimabad.
    3. Steering is little out i have to do wheel alignment, any specific mechanic and how much it will cost.
    4. some minor door work and auto mirror and side mirror, wind screen water motor, any mechanic and how much iy will cost.
    5. Back lights and the light inside rear mirror how much it will cost and location.

    I will post my vehicle pictures soon and I'm really enjoying the ride and comfort.

    Note : This is my first civic and powered car so i dnt know much about it. Recently i have kept Lancer in Karachi but not for long only 3-4 months and never visited any mechanic.

    I also want to know that can we go to Lahore-Islamabad on this civic, as my driving plans are not to go over 110kmh (Sindh 80-90, Punjab 100,110)

    Thanks in advance.

    I have no doubt on reliability of baleno but I'm just scared of its problems and khuwari. Yesterday almost we have done dealing with a 1999 baleno but 15,000 diff and i left that car, after that i sit on a civic seat and when i drive it i maked my mind for civic and purchased it. Baleno is no doubt a very good machine but in comfort and joy and grip honda is best. My civic flying on cng all i have to do just press the pedal and it fly.

    Your budget was 370K and you bought Civic for 340K
    But for the proper maintainess you have to spend at-least 50K more on it. Its normal because it happens when we buy old/used cars.
    Now when you will drive it, then you will know it more. Try to hear all the noises/voices while you drive it or start it.

    Well thats good to know.
    but consider it as a tip.
    When we buy old/used cars, then main focus should be on its interior & exterior and suspension, documents, etc. Engine doens't count much. Because we can overhaul the engine and can make it like new. Or we spend little money on it and swap it. So engine condition doesn't matter much. But other things do.
