    Question Searching a used car (550-650k)

    Hello Pakwheelers, Im searching for a used car within 550-650k range. I've in my mind sedans like city idsi (04-05), liana (08-09) and platz (03-04).

    Can u give your value-able opinion considering fuel economy, easy/ cheap maintenance , reliable drive.
    Mention any other car which you think is better in this range.

    Drive, comfort - Liana. Resale - City. You won't find a good City in this amount though.

    I'd say Liana coz you can find a later , newer model in your range . Only get a liana of you really want a sedan and if you know how to maintain a liana .

    Other than that in your range i would've bought mira 2 door or brand new mehran . Reasons:

    1. Easy to maintain
    2. Excellent fuel economy
    3. Mira is very comfortable and spacious.
    4. Cheap transfer fee
    5. Good resale


    I will suggest you to stay away from liana , Good luck !

    In 650 you can get a 2004 model City only in Karachi.

    Liana is not a trouble free car, be aware, if you get hold of an abused one. Otherwise you will enjoy every bit of it

    City 2002-03 can be found in good condition. Liana 2006-07, Corolla 97-2000, Baleno 2004-05 are the options in this range.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    My vote would be for City, but you'll need to make sure that the car is in good condition non-accident. In this range expect that you'd have to get some work done. I would recommed that go for IDSI but increase your range to 7 for a relatively trouble free ride.

    Out of market car, no charm of any sort, nothing special, must be underpowered as 1.0 engine in a sedan body

    You can find a decent 2003-2004 idsi within your budget
    However you can also get a 2002 City in very good condition in the same amount
    Look up cars on olx a friend bought a 2001 Golden City (exi) in 450k

    Local liana faced issues in ff cng only..otherwise it is as good as Swift or jimny (all 3 have same engines). So, if you have a liana on petrol only, forget even all models of city! I have experience of idsi 2004 city on petrol throughout but it never had same pick as a liana running on cng...
