    Thumbs up Why Suzuki Mehran car is Affordable auto and so famous in Pakistan

    Guys I wrote an article on this topic and will love to get your feedback on the article.

    You can read the article by visiting: Why Suzuki Mehran car is Affordable auto and so famous in Pakistan

    I have an old Suzuki Mehran 1992 model, and love it because of it being so economical to run and maintain. I know it is pain to spend on maintenance but still it cost way low as compared to other cars.

    i dont think most people buy for economical reasons
    its what they are bound to buy due to overpricing in the market

    but there can be a 2nd way of thinking
    for example its easy for students to keep maintain and bla bla stuff like that

    Suzuki Mehran is Pakistan's highest selling car due to the lack of alternatives available owing to the monopolistic nature of Pakistan's auto industry and restrictions imposed on imports by the Government of Pakistan

    Suzuki Mehran has got to be one of the worst cars in the world. It is a safety hazard and should be banned if Pak Suzuki doesn't improve it. But unfortunately due to the connivance of the auto industry with the Govt. this is the only option left for people who want to buy a "car" and not end up selling an organ.

    My '96 Mehran which I bought used in 2001 didn't even come with front seatbelts! and the brakes, or lack thereof, were horrendous! why did I get a POS like that? simply because it was the best car I could get in my budget. Sure it's economical to maintain, but that's all relative since it's still lots more than a motorcycle.

    As for PS they won't do **** because they know they have no rival and their crap sells, all they're interested in is raping the general public by providing them with outdated and unsafe POS's at over inflated prices. We should just boycott these vehicles (yes I know it's easier said than done) and pony up for better and safer vehicles.

    dont blame others or PS - its us the public, we buy a certain car because we always think about mechanic sahee karaiga ke nahin sale hogee ke nahin, I mean if we the AWAM get our heads out of the sand and stop following what others are upto we will succeed. e.g. classic Pakwheel question - how to repair something etc etc.. the answer comes as - fallana mechanic - yeh number etc.

    All because we the awam have become nincompoops and cannot even wire up a plug or even shampoo a carpet - we call on other people to do the tinest of work - this applies for all things in life be it your home, car, PC etc.

    if you take a look yourself and get the cheap mentality out of your head - you can tackle the problem quite easily and save a lot of time, stress and grief

    if we follow the above - you will see that you can easily get out of the lazy awami culture we have made for ourselves

    Agreed with you 100%, time to change our mentality. I lived few years in Sweden while studying and I had witnessed those people do everything at their own and is strong reason they are progressing as strong nation. Now I do not feel ashamed cooking, cleaning or other small job by myself. And yes I try to fix CNG setting for my Mehran myself but still not good with it but learning...

    Do everything at your own as much as possible and do not rely on others all the time.

    Mehran is a good car. Very cheap maintence and it gets the work done. My sir used to own a kia classic and after he got sick of maintaining it with heavy costs he finally bought a riced 2nd hand mehran and hes enjoying it without any tension.
