    Default HELP REQUIRED URGENTLY! SUGGEST!!

    I'm in a huge fix. A low budget and trying to get the best possible car in it. But isn't that what everyone wants. So it's like this:

    I have at the very most 4.50 lacs. A second-hand Baleno or advance payment for a new financed Santro are the two options I'm considering right now.

    What cars/deals/options do you guys suggest for my budget? Thanx in advance for the help

    You are considering two different breeds. One is a compact and other is a sedan. First set a mind frame about your requirements. Personally I dont like cars without DIGGI.

    Once you know your requirments, then ask the question from the GURUS of the pakwheels.
    Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.......

    From my experience i would suggest you to drop the idea of a baleno as in this bugget the baleno which you would get would not be in a perfect condition and would need repairs soon. i would sugest you to get a santro as it is a wonderful car(as i have it myself and have driven it for 30k km Santro EXEC) however i would suggest you to get a santro exec instead of club and try to refrain from cultus

    parapilot, my requirement is a good family car. "diggi" doesn't matter. Now can you suggest me a car?

    Jah, I'm getting a very good deal on a very good condition Baleno. Now would you say it's worth it? And yeh, I would love a Santro! I hate Cultus.

    GLI, ASSALAM-O-AlAIKUM fellow Islamabadian! lol.

    hmm, some dealers I talked to put used Balenos and Toyotas over Santros. But I find people here very much in favor of the Santro. How long have you had a Santro?

    Santro has to be the logical choice as 4.5 lacs wont fetch u a good baleno.
    I also agree with the guy who advised u about exec, here the fun begins. i ve booked santro exec gv via hyderabad part of dewan farooq motors, they promised that they d deliver me my car within one month (within august) but now they tell me that the production of santro exec has been suspended due to some reason? i want to inquire abt it more but this is not that forum. in short if u book a santro make it sure that it is delivered to u on time.

    @Xtraterrestrial, lol!! A Toyota no doubt supercedes a Santro and in the price range ur best competitor is the vitz! Id still go for a santro, never owned one, my friend does, and hes very happy with it! A bit messy at high speeds, but otherwise an impressive car!

    baleno is good big car, santro is costing much when new, better to buying vitz 1999 2000 model or used santro.

    Guys, some of you are saying that I won't get a good Baleno in 4.5 lac. But I will be getting a second hand one and it's in very good condition. Model 2000 +


    Santro is winning!

    bhai jee

    450 k main achi condition ki 1996 to 1998 honda civic and city mil jati hai

    it will also remain problem free it u can check the engine and GODDAS etc....lol

    u can also get CNG fitted 2002 VITZ here from Gujranwala as here importeds are cheap...

    now all depends on your choice....

    i think manual vitz CNG fitted is best option if u dont want DIKKI (Trunk)

    you need to have lots of money and patience when buying a Santro. the cost may not be much but first, it's the uncomfortable driving. second, the money for maintainance and third, the money ready to be lost on resale.

    are you ready for all this?
