    Now coming to your question!
    Everything depends on condition like I bought my 98 Khyber for 310k with chilled Ac alloy rims new tyres and soundless car just as pleasureable as new one! Isliye on first drive mainy decision Lelia tha that I am buying it anyway! Body was rust less but showerd!
    If Ac CNG working and car is soundless (engine + drive) then 290-350k is good price but try negotiating cuz some are ready to give in low price too (papers waghera sab clear hon else leave that option)
    If Ac not working bhale compressor waghera laga hua ho it doesn't counts in working Ac (I have experienced some senseless sellers so telling u)
    And engine is OK and body original then 260-280k
    If body showerd then not more than 250-265k
    Coming to drive so more tuned and aligned car more grippy and in control It will drive where as Khyber has really good grip I always drive on petrol with Ac on and my car vibrates btw 90-100 but beyond 100 it's smooth and really handles well but again good tyres and alignment matters! (One of my car's wheels is not balanced shayad isliye it vibrates but just btw 90-100
    Comfortablity is good but seats are not as comfy as cultus ones so get seats changed then it's a pleasure drive!!
    As u might have noticed in my video my car's temp was cold but car was on Ac full and video was made when I was about to reach nooriabad so it never gets hot Alhamdulillah but in city in summers start and stop traffic me it gets hot a little beyond half! Get big clean radiator with good throw of fan when on Ac it won't matter much!
    Fuel consumption without Ac
    12kmpl city
    17kmpl hwy
    On Ac
    9kmpl city
    12-13 kmpl hwy
    Tested 3-4 times
    I hope I answered all questions!
    Thank u
    Thanks a lot for the detail answer, i am keeping Khyber as my second option car if my budget didn't allow me get a Civic dolphin/Margalla.

    Khyber really inspires me a lot as it is very good hatchback with good petrol average and low maintenance cost good grip and good body quality

    My pleasure!
    Well dolphin is personally my favorite car but under 4 u won't get a good civic which means frequently visiting the mechanic!
    Margalla is good if u have a big family but if u buying second car for personal use and mostly 2-3 guys will sit mostly then go for Khyber over margalla cuz my czns bought 97 margalla when I got my Khyber and believe me he himself likes the drive and control of Khyber where as his margalla is pretty well tuned car no squeaks nothing so go for Khyber as far as I would advice! Thanks

    We have mehran right now so my first choice will be a sedan like Margalla of good condition i hope in around 3.75 i will get a decent car as sedan will be a good value for family purpose specially boot when you are going on a picnic or long route if i didn't get my hands on a good margalla then i definitely look for khyber

    If any one have idea about this please tell , what is the type of khyber rear suspension ? is it like a margalla or margalla have better rear suspension i am asking this to compare the comfort between khyber and margalla also about road grip which car has better ? i have heard that khyber is good in road grip but for margalla there are mixed comments some says its good some says it's just average

    I remember stretching my khyber to 80 in 2nd and 110 in 3rd and 140-150kph run twice a weak on pasrur road sialkot twice a week when I wasn't even allowed to drive by myself. joyriding when dad isn't nearby or asking my cousins to let me drive when dad thought they were gonna be driving. Also to unleash its performance fully, get it tuned a lil rich and advance ignition timing a bit if fuel consumption isn't a problem, the acceleration isn't what it should be or were you accelerating it gradually. I usually did acceleration runs with paddle to the metal. I would make a video to demonstrate if it were 2014 but nowadays ignition coil is arcing, missing and carburetor is also not set properly.

    Well if u already have a hatchback and u looking for sedan then go for margalla it will be economical as compared to civic and make your budget 4+ so that u can get a trouble free car as below 4 it's really hard to find one trouble free!
    Margalla rear suspension are independent ones just like cultus where as Khyber has torsion bar so margalla is more grippy but mostly margalla owners raise their cars idk why which makes it slip on sharp turns so get one with good tyres,well aligned and with a normal ride height not too high neither too slammed as slammed car might be having failed shock absorbers!

    I totally agree with the point that Khyber has amazing potential! My car was running Ac too maybe that's why it accelerated slower but still it was fine!
    Yeah I was accelerating with half pedal press as I on highways I avoid pulling it too hard!
    Well riching the mixture and advancing ignition would ruin the consumption and will harm the engine too which is already old enough to be treated with more care I guess!
    My czn has 93 Khyber which kicks just like u describing and it's really fun to drive too!
    Well if possible get ur ride tuned and make I video I would love to see your ride sir!

    I'll when I get time, these days the car stays parked and runs only 5-10 km a week as I don't have time to maintain it and going to mechanics in weather these days is a tough job. I plan to address its rust issues and solve the reasons causing poor performance when my semester ends(January).

    Indeed weather isn't supportive now days and as far as mechanics are concerned they waste time more rather then fixing the thing in time!
    Rust is a big issue i would request u to post your pics and tell us your experience when ever you start the work!
