    Its a good car, but depends on your luck, if you manage to get a good one.
    my neighbor got one in 225k a year back. it's 93, 94 model i think. and in good condition.

    Margalla is good one to buy ... make sure k there is no pending work from Suspension point of view .. coz that could take you for about 15 to 20K extra i.e. Chimtay, Axcel (Goday), Shocks & Stearing don't need any immediate expense. Rest car is too good.

    I drove margalla for 4-5 years and believe me it is a better car than the latest suzuki cars. You see the simpler the better. if margalla is tuned properly and well kept it can be a very faithful companion. I took my car to virtually everywhere and it responded very well. Can you believe that i took it to pir sohawa on cng with 4 people inside and it never showed any sign of weakness.

    margalla is one of the best cars offered by Paksuzuki . its a very balanced car with a good 1.3 l engine . it has a great pick even on cng with a/c on. it doesn't feel underpowered.
    parts are easily available and of all qualities. make sure the one u get has good suspension. u cann find a 98 glx power pack here in lahore for around 425k.

    Well, First time when i drove margalla years back it was 93 model and i found that crap. no pick interior was really rubbish. few years later, I was looking for a car, Car dealer brought Margalla Plus 1998 i refused to buy that but he insisted me to drive. I drove that car pick was really amazing I asked its speedo meter is broken. he said no. .


    I would say Its really a nice car (Margalla Plus 1997or 1998) interior is really good, thats like cultus but in black colour. Price was between 450,000 to 500,000 at that time (2002) I dont know current market price.


    if you really want margalla I will suggest Margalla Plus 1997or 1998. I hope it will help you to decide..
    Determination determines the destination.

    From my personal experience, margalla (if properly tuned) has better pick than many later cars. We had one margalla and one corolla 1.6 gli 2001 model. There are times when i used to prefer margalla over corolla (despite all corolla qualities) because of margalla's excellent pick and speed on cng. My car used to do 170-175 kms in 55 cylinder within city (AC sometimes on sometimes not). So it gives you a cost of Rs. 2.6/km (440/170). What else do you want. Suspension needs frequent repairs but because I did not put new suspension in it and used to get it repaired each time, thats why i had to get it repaired more frequently. Spare parts are available everywhere and at very cheap rates.


    Our corolla got stolen in november 2008 and we needed a car so my office financed me a chevy joy. I gave margalla to my dad to get it disposed off and buy a new car for himself since corolla belonged to him.

    I my point of view go for Margalla, is Awesome, great grip , pleasure drive, spacious car . Fuel economy and Independent suspension in the back. it a One Of the Best Car if you have a 300k- 325k Budget. You can easily get good Margalla in this price. i recently bought Margalla 94 in 280 k . the car is fully inside original and outside shower.i must say its better than khybar and Mehran body wise and also engine

    I am not sure but I think margalla started getting assembled in pakistan after 1995. Try to get a margalla that is japan assembled. it has a sturdy body and better drive than the local assembled. If u want to know in detail about the car contact me at 0346-5311982. I can proovide you detailed info from my personal experience.
