    yes sure subaru is expensive to maintain but suzuki likes to go to workshop more often then a subaru amd its always the same equation
    Frequency and prices/rates are always a tradeoff to be kept in mind.

    u better go for fx or mehran, u mite not get some good 1 with cng in 110k but u shud buy the car that can be sold when u need money
    and fx mehran are ready cash
    subaru will give a tuf time when u want a resale
    maintenance wise fx and mehran are gud.. u can get the spare parts and expert mechanic even in a dhatha khooh

    subaru in my opinion will give u the comfort and economy plus, u can have an AC in that its 1k cc so AC will work perfect with that machine

    fx and mehran are tooo much uncomfortable in comparison to subaru, but they will give ur money back on a 3 days notice reselling is way much easy

    I have had experience with all 3 so I can safely tell you that never ever go for a Subaru. Its a very very good car but you wont find any parts for it. Even if you find parts for it they would be really expensive. I can well imagine what you would be getting in Rs.110,000....Avoid it at all costs.

    Go for an FX instead if you can find a good one. A good 87-88 model FX with AC is much better than a Mehran and you can get it in the same price.

    u guys are talking abt subaru so i thought i must also get in the discussion.

    well it all depends on wht u personally think abt all these cars....but if u take opinions i wud strongly suggest u to go for subaru.

    i agree aridsoul bhayee and other senior members abt parts availability and cost.......BUTTTT the car wont take u to mechanics tht often as compared to mehrans and almost all suzukis.

    well the above suggestion is based on my personal experience as i own tht car for around 14 years and i sold it 2 or 3 weeks back.....tht car didnt gime ne major problems..just gave me once when i sold it and the new owner was trying to start the car.............leken woh bhee meray apartments say bahar nikaltay hee start hogayee aur huee meray hee haathon say

    sorry for this lengthy suggestion.......i get a bit emotional actually when i talk abt my sooby....she was my first luv....but if i had the money i wud have never sold the car

    my advise to u is to go to azhar shaheed market saddar and ask prices of parts. it will make your decision easy. Its a hype that oarts are expensive., Availibility is limited but cost is not very high.
    Also comparing to suzuki 7 number parts is not justifiable coz for subaru u know u will get a good quality part. Its a low seller and no desi manufacturer bothers to make substandard parts for it. I think its an advantage.

    I had a Subaru 86 4x4 versin. Its a very nice car. WRXSTI you never had any problems coz most probablly u had it first hand. Second hand subarus are all ruined by mechanics by fitting in non-genuine parts and sometimes even fitting charade and suzuki parts to it.

    I suggested FX coz its easy to maintain and cheap to run. Its much better than a mehran. I know coz FX was my first car. Bought a mehran too but sold it after 2 weeks and again got my FX back from the dealer.

    Another good option for you would be a Charade 86 quota 93-94 2-door model in petrol/CNG.

    My friend has a subaru model around 86. The main problem he faces is finding spares and expert mechanic. majority of our mechanic ppl are suzuki or toyota trained. They find it hard to fix anything apart from these names.

    I've recently bought Suzuki FX with Landi Ranzo CNG for 95,000, got the engine overhauled in 8,000, installed kabuli axel 3000 bla bla bla

    finally it would cost me 110,000

    Believe me bro. FX is an excellent car mainly b'coz of it economy and resale

    My vote goes for FX

    Next is Mehran if it fits in your range.

    Congrats on having Subaru, its far better then Suzuki. But make sure the car you are going to buy is in original condition and must not be altered with other car’s parts.
    I am using Subaru from last 8 years and believe me she never gave me any trouble through this time period as our past cars used to do. As some members mentioned that Subaru visits mechanics less, well its only happens when your car is with original parts. I have seen many Subaru’s, which are altered even fitted with diesel charade engine and front face of Suzuki Khyber. As far as parts concern they are expensive and available in major cities but its surety that you will get genuine as no body bothers to make them here like other cars.
    This car has more power and better body than FX and Mehran
    If travelling was free, You'd never see me again.
