    Nowadays the situation is lower than saturated and ANY car is hard to sell but Civic would be a better choice in terms of parts and resale. in case you still want a Platz, a friend has this to offer:

    https://www.pakwheels.com/xt_details.asp?CarID=19711

    this is what i would strongly suggest because Japanese cars are way better than the local ones. i agree that the 2004 is more beautiful

    ***Help wanted !!! 2000 Civic or 200304 Platz?*** -734841


    but i would just like to help this poor guy who tried entering the race of imported vehicles' money. price, though more than reason is stil negotiable and may be seen any weekday before 4 PM

    waisay mentioning your budget would've helped give better solutions.


    anyways, best of luck!

    Thanx for ur input guys...

    Lemme post examples of wat I'm lukin at:


    ***Help wanted !!! 2000 Civic or 200304 Platz?*** -735094


    ***Help wanted !!! 2000 Civic or 200304 Platz?*** -735095


    My range is between 525,000 and 575,000. Depending on the car and condition. Ofcourse the Platz I can get for a bit less, but registration and CNG would bring ti to same level.

    I had previously decided on the Platz but recently a friend bought a 2000 Civic for 550,000 and I was impressed!

    I have always been a fan of the 2000 Civic's shape but I have no experience with Honda's. Our's has been a family of Corollas since I can remember.

    Hope this will help with more opinions.

    Come on guys I'm still in need of help. Would a 7 year old Civic be trouble free? Will it's suspension hold on for another few years? What about the engine? How long will it last if it has been properly maintained and has done between 70,000 and 100,000 Km's?

    I call upon the experts @Pakwheels...

    I understand that they are both different classes, but the Platz will be Japan-driven and newer with less mileage.

    Civic will be local driven with higher mileage.

    An any1 point out the pros and cons? There must be owners of these two cars out here @pakwheels

    Peace!

    platz is nowhere near vti 2000. thats what i think. its better in terms of comfort, drive, space, availability and cost of parts, and what and what not. simply not comparable.

    yeah right, it's much better. the only draw back is the engine displacement because i don't think we even have the 1.3 versions here

    go for the civic

    a good non accidental 2000 will still cost above 6 lakh


    a 96-98(same shape) will cost u around 5.50-70
    milage ranges from 150 k kms to 220 k kms


    dont be fooled with the low milage thingy.

    prices of the cars are nowdays on the upper side.


    vitz is good car but parts are a big issue.
    Past cant be brought back ..but future can be made even better than the Past..if one wants to.. ....
