    Default Will Prices go down - In near future?

    Assalaamu alaikum,

    I have about 4 lakh rupees for which I need to buy a new car. I belong to a lower middle class family and this to me is hard earned money, I've been able to save since last 5 years of employment.

    Having said that, I'm interested in getting a car which is reliable, has good build quality and is cheap to maintain. (Not particularly looking for good resale) But very importantly I wanted to ask members here if you all foresee any reduction of car prices in the near future.

    I don't want to buy an inferior car now to find out in the next month(s) that had I waited I could've bought a much better vehicle.

    So the question is, given the current circumstances, should I look to buy a car just now?

    By the way, my short list after research seems to indicate that Vitz is the best buy with this money.

    Thank you
    This is as much of a test for me as it's for them

    You are going trough the same situation, in which i was three months back....Bro..i will advise you to go for Cultus VXR....Economical. Spaceious(In 1000 CC catagory), availability for spares @ normal price......i you look @ Vitz no doubt its a good car but for a middle class person like you and me...its not that good...spares hardly available and if available the prices are high---you can get a good cultus in the budget you have----VXR new is for 560,000 ---and 400,000 you can get a used one in mint condition---if you wish---in my opinion Cultus will be the wise decision...

    cultus has resale parts . but not that vitz got.

    Its depends How much u care of your car .it will run with you long last.

    There are dozens of cultus available in lahore between 3/50 to 4 lacs in the models of 2002/03. I visited some Sunday Car Bazars today. There are chance of prices coming down further in near future.

    @Lonely_Puma
    i will suggest that dont even think about vitz, its current owners are facing problems.
    @kamran3002652205 is right, go for alto or cultus since its a locally made car and parts are widely available, u can go for coure as well since its a reliable car.
    thanks
    Thanks to ALLAH for everything | Love what you have!

    @lonely_puma

    the only choice is cultus
    vitz may have better safety features and maybe more comfier but I dont think that is that necessary in your case. Plus the two most important things are availability of parts and resale. Gari kabhi bhe kisi emergency mein sale karni par sakti hai and if u have a cultus ull be guaranteed better resale than every other 1000cc car out there + parts will also be no problem and if u get ur car insured then there shldnt be any problem whtsoever. maintainance is also cheap since the engine is carbed and nearly every mechanic knows the engine compared to other efi engines

    @All

    Thank you for replying. Although I was hesitant on Cultus because of the price and have heard poor build quality stories, but would consider. I guess might as well go ahead and get a car rather than waiting for prices to come down.

    A much better choice would be a 2nd hand Chevy Exclusive if u can find one. Not the Joy.

    Suzuki parts are expensive and Cultus is a pathetic car anyway.
    Not reliable.
    Bad build quality.
    20 year old shape and engine.

    And every second day u'll have some problem with it. 99% chance of tht. So u might end up spending more money on repairs etc.
    U'll enjoy the Chevy much more than the Cultus.
    Plus it has a lot of leg room even though it looks small.
    Also look into the Chery QQ.

    Check the "Cars for Sale" on the site.

    Do let me know if someone able to find Cultus ISB registered under 4 lac

    Brand new Joy is 6lak and its difficult to find a 2nd hand one.
    Thts the only reason. If u find one then ofcourse its a good choice.
    Exclusive is easier to find 2nd hand( not many but more than Joy) and it'll be cheaper.
    Buying Cultus would be the worst decision.

    Given your situation, my advice is that never go for experimentation. Buy a Suzuki whichever model fits in your budget. Later by the grace of almighty if you have more resources you can always sell it and buy new one.

    Vitz, Platz, Chevys etc etc are for those who have enough money or whom its a 3rd car in house. They can afford to have loss with less pain.
    Attitude is a liitle thing which makes a big difference
