    Kia Classic was a reliable and a solid car ,, as my friend owned it once in those golden school times ,,and indeed the price ranges in accordance to the conditions exactly as you mentioned between 270 to 350 k but i would like to add ,,consider some other options before you make such an investment of buying a second hand vehicle , you can opt for coure ,or second hand corolla models like corolla 88-90 which are more reliable than the one above

    May i know what are features of Kia spectra and if it's a cooool car why it is not hit in our local market. Any experiences would be welcomed. Is there any issue of parts OR maintainence of something else which is having problem Re-sale is a big factor. I don't know why in our local market resale has so emphasis since you haven't bought a car say a Brand new Zero meter from show room and first question in the mind comes or somebody else describe it Kya Resale hay is garee kee?? even if you are paying a handsome amount like 350,000 + if you include registration frieght etc. etc on Mehran say for example.

    @aamermalik Kia spectra is a good car, i found it better thn KIA Classic but it has serious spare parts availability and mantainence issues! But If you want to keep a good car in this range, I dont think you`ll find a better option...

    Suzuki Baleno and Honda city 98 are good options as well...

    If I were at your place I might have gone for baleno.

    Thanks for all of your kind responses. I'm really looking towards Baleno. Being a new commer can you suggest what should i check when buying second hand car. Ofcourse, expert opinion can be taken from somebody else but still what are basics that a layman can check.

    KIA Classic would be an excellent choice for your. its as tough as a charade. does not have power steering and its steering is wayy too hard. good points are: its virtually a maintenance free car. it will go on running. no need of periodic maintenance. has a nice consumption on cng and the factory fitted CNG models have two 40 kg cylinders which give u more range. i would say u should go for it.
