    Post I want to buy a car for 600k

    Hello fellows, as you read the title, I want to get opinion before I buy my first car.

    Every friend is giving a different opinion, so I thought to better get opinion from expert pak-wheelers. First of all, I don't want to buy Mehran, and I also do not like small Japanese cars like Alto and Life. I am good to go with 2003 model Vitz or a little old model of Passo, but Passo has high maintenance cost and secondly some friends also suggest to wait for some time and increase the budget to 750k and find a Corolla XLI car.

    Recently a friend also suggested to buy Santro Club GV, its 2004 model and seller is demanding 450k and it is expected that we can get that Santro for 390k. Though it require denting and painting but we have good links for denting/painting at Walton Road Lahore.

    Please give your sincere suggestions. Thank you.

    As per my advice, atleast don't go for the Korean Brands as a first car or with little knowledge of Maintainance. Well i am glad that you are not going for Mehran. Then go for Coure if the budget allows you in 800cc category. in 1000cc in 600K Vitz is impossible

    If you are ok with driving a 1.6 Ltr than Civic VTi 1996-2001 is a best option

    Buy a Coure, you can easily find a well maintained car 2008-2010 model in 550-600k. Its cheap to maintain, if properly maintained its a trouble free car, plus its the best ride in small cars category. I've owned one and loved to drive it more than my 2010 Corolla

    Hello guys, I am considering Cultus and today I have two options.

    1st is 2007 model, Cultus VXLi (Demand is 6,25,000 and a dealer is involved, he must be taking 15-20k profit atleast though he is a reference)
    2nd is 2012 Model Cultus VXR EFI (Demand is 7,80,000 and no dealer is involved, also owner said that price is a bit negotiable.

    Confusion I have is that, Is the price tag of 780k not doubtful for 2012 model Cultus? Someone told me that there must be a problem in the car otherwise price of this model should be around 900k.

    2012 model Car is family driven and around 45,000 km driven. I have also called a reliable Denter to review the car.

    Depends, if you wanna keep it for 5 years, get the 2012 upon thorough inspection. If its for an year or so, get the 2007 after a thorough inspection. Prices are dropping as better options are available

    I would like to keep it for 2-3 years. We did not get the chance to visit for 2007 model, but we inspected 2012 model now. We found it was accidented car with minor accident. My experts had different opinion on it, one of them recommended to offer 650k for 2012 model as I would get this amount if I go for a resale and he also said there will not be any balancing issue., otherwise engine had no issue and both my experts were agreed about engine performance.

    Best to buy an accident free car, accidented vehicles turn out to have a lot of hidden costs and are never the same again

    Well, if i was in your place, i would gone for 1st candidate, plus try to source the owner's details, then tell him that you are interested in the car, kindly don't involve the dealer, take your car back, then we can negotiate.
    Coming towards why ?? 2007
    Because the cultus 12 same as in 2007, plus the VXLi is efi as 2012 plus additional features like power steering and power windows, as they are pretty much standard in JDM cars, i have driven the 2016 model cultus and i hate it but it ac was strong, still i have one cultus 2007 model VXL (Carby) i like 2007 more
