    Default Expert Opinion/ Suggestions Needed for Buying a New Car

    Aoa

    I currently own a Cultus 2011 and want to change my car as it has served me a good 5 years. Here are my preferences, budgets and constraints:

    Budget:
    • Around Rs. 1 million without financing
    • Around Rs. 1.5 million with financing


    Considerations:
    • Mileage
    • Safety
    • Maintenance cost
    • Spare parts
    • Re-sale value (after all, we are all Pakistanis )


    Preferences:
    • 1000 - 1300 cc
    • Preferably a hatch-back
    • Preferably automatic shift. Wont mind manual shift either


    Options (flexible to add more to the mix):
    • Faw V2
    • Passo
    • Swift
    • Mira
    • Wagon R


    I am tilting towards Faw V2 because of its features and the fact that it falls in my range and is certainly an upgrade to Cultus (in my humble opinion).

    Looking forward to your analysis and suggestions with reasons.

    Yeah. The perception might not be correct. But it prevails when you are trying to sell a used product.

    You are right bro. But if V2 is sold under Toyota/Honda or Suzuki, the perception of the people would change

    Swift has 3 variants.
    2 are manual and one is automatic.
    Base version is without ABS.
    So the prices will be vary.

    Sir perception is not based on the country. Your lancer was japanese but no aftermarket because of other reasons. If was you I wouldn't buy lancer because i knew very well about Mitsubishi cars. Lancer was the most unsuccessful car I have seen from 2001 to 2014. BTW they have now closed the production.

    And that's why I hate it
    Why not put in a couple of hundred Ks more and get a brand new one.

    Checked. Looks clean

    But can't put in money in this till Auction sheet is verified and snaps before shipment are produced. That's why I'm not considering buying a JDM anymore. Takes lots of effort and time to point out something good.
