    Default Mehran CNG Vs imported 650CC Car consumption

    Hi all,

    I hope this is the correct section i have chosen for my post. I am buying a new Mahran (lease) and intend to convert it to CNG for saving money. Now there are many imported cars (Japanese) of 650CC or 700CC cars in lahore. They are mostly automatic and their price(used car) is almost the same as Mehran. Their fuel consumption i have been told is exceptional as good as 25Km per liter. One example is Nissan Otti.

    My office distance from home is 16km one way. Keeping in view the CNG price raise and 3 day non-availability, people are asking me not to buy Mehran and go for the above mentioned Japanese used refurbished cars. My preference is a car which do not take me to workshop for at least next few years. But only thing i am worried about is resale factor.

    What do you suggest?

    Regards,
    Muhammad Khabbab
    Lahore

    i hate both toyota indus and suzuki. but suzuki is more evil of the two. cuz
    mehran is 20 plus year old design.

    and there is one thing bout corolla that i can never deny
    it is durable as hell.
    i ve taken rides in corolla in far flung areas where my company was working and the drivers were driving it like hell. and each time i ve taken i ride on one of those cars i used to think that that particular car would not be like that again next time i ll ride it. but this wasnt the case.


    mehran is quite durable but it becomes squeaky when driven in tough conditions. (see here i am praising it a little) and its CV joints (godas) need reparing.
    yea rolla is one dheet car,but hot cake for theives with many missing features,esp the old shape rolla had very poor brakes

    n yea mehran sure starts giving noises after some time,experienced...had to get its lots of under car stuff,that is its floor work,kamani work n what not

    Yup the prices have increased insanely ,that's what most of us hate a mehran,but on the other aspect every thing in country have kissed the blue sky.I have told you guys earlier its the fault of administration ,they are chipmunks,Godzilla's ,they are on the control's ,they have no idea where are they heading.They are completely unaware.If they put a full stop on these local companies,indus rola and suzuki mehrban,by God they won't dare to increase a single penny.But the senior paji zoordari is busy in sucking the blood from poor people.These bunch of chimpanzees have assassinated poor people like me ,still sucking and will suck --till they suck the last drop from our flesh.

    n thats when me n dad also decided never to get a mehran/rolla again something that gets stolen mostly,who likes to see their hard earned money gone that way

    yea new car is new

    maybe he keeps saying bad things about mehran cox in all these years there have been no change,no extra feature but only the price increase

    i bought a 2004 model civic,had to visit workshop for some adjustments,thats when i thought a new car is new n old is old but still 2-3 days of workshop to get some stuff done n its perfect

    so i guess you can agree to him that you should buy something with extra features instead of paying the same money n get nothing for it except a new car,ofcourse it will b new but no power steering no power windows,no comfort,no power brakes,not that good pick
    atleast i used to miss power brake(hydraulic),power windows,power steering
    hahaha so you start hating it after it got stolen... in any case its so sad yaar after-all its your hard earned car... these bloody thieves

    older cars always takes you to mechanic and if person is new or doesn't know much about car maintenance then "mechanics ki toh eid ho gayee" they fix one issue after sometime other issue will rise-up, so that's why for complicated (EFi, Auto tranny etc... )cars a person should know atleast some basics. A new person who never owned a car before shouldn't go for complex cars in first place. Mechanics will rip him off for his "innocence"

    Yeah you are right Mehran lacks of features in mentioned price tag, but every person knows it very well so I guess no one is forcing anybody to buy Mehran but still people are buying it Its their own opinion or like. But as you already started that "new car means tension free life"

    i did drive my friend's 2010 model brand new mehran on the day it came from the show room in 2010. and found it fit. i was disgusted to see that its dashboard had two air ducts instead of four and there was a bolt on top of the dashboard to fix it with the body, which wasnt there in 1994 model. ofcourse it smelled new and was fit at the time. never had the chance to see it again. its brakes were also not as good as i expected.

    then i ve driven another friend's 2004-5 model car and he wasnt at home and his family was having starting the car and wanted me to take it to the mechanic. although it was a very well maintained one. its brakes were horific. and similar to two other suzukis i ve driven: khyber and cultus. it started and i drove it around quite a bit and didnt find anythng wrong cuz everything about it was feeling so wrong. that day i realized why mehran drivers drive so bad especially taxi drivers. it felt like an exercise machine to me. everything involved so much effort.
    i returned it back and the next day it didnt move a bit and her mother had to take a taxi to bring a mechanic to fix it and i felt so bad.

    JDM 660cc Car:

    1. Better than Mehran in terms of performance.

    2. Not much compatible with CNG (It will give issues if you install CNG). It will remain costly than CNG even if it does 25km/liter (ideally)

    3. Availability of part may be hard, as you need to find in Junk Yard. So no new parts, you will find Kabuli/old parts from other accidented cars

    4. If your car model is rare or newer then it will be very difficult to find spare part and if by luck you find it then it will be highly costly.

    5. It is sophisticated car with Auto tranny, so not every mechanic would be able to handle it. You need to go to some good experienced mechanics which means heavy on pocket

    6. No dealership, means no guarantee If something goes wrong or if you get defected car then you won't be able to complain anyone


    Suzuki Mehran:

    1. Excellent car for traveling in city also if its your first ever car.

    2. Parts are very easily available and very very economical.

    3. Cheaper then 660cc because of CNG. (do the calculation of doing 100 kms on CNG and Petrol)

    4. New Mehran comes with Warranty of 2 years. So it means peace of mind, if anything goes wrong then you can easily claim its warranty and it will be replaced for FREE.

    5. Proper Dealership: If any tuning issue or minor CNG setting is needed then dealership will do it free in warranty period.

    6. Due to simpler engine, every mechanic can easily work over it and you will also understand then engine basics.

    7. Mehran is just like investment, it will never loss you (if maintained properly). Since you are looking for resale factor so you can't get any further butter option than Mehran. The cuore has been discontinued and Alto is soon going to discontinue. So you can think the resale factor of Mehran in near Future You would be able to resale is on your demand.


    Result:

    If its your first car so I would recommend Mehran, it will be in warranty and give you peace of mind. And once you get the know-how of car basics and maintenance then you can switch to some JDM (on your own risk )

    Hope I answer you question!
    Bhai kis dunya main reh rhe ho?? Dunya chand pe phnch gai aur tm mehran ko le k bethe ho.. Jahan tak parts ki bat hai, to wo easily available hain.. or incase agar nhi bhi milte to there r many online japanese parts store frm whr u can buy each n every thing..ye 2012 hai bhai. 1980 nhi..wake up dunya bht age nikl gai hai

    I just replies to those who quoted my points. By the way I didn't quote you anywhere and still this comment??? Are you trying to get personal with me????? Its every person's own thinking, you think I'm childish and I also think something for you but unfortunately I can't write here

    So better stay away from me dude. You wanna say something then reply to Poster he needs opinion, its not my thread. If you say something to me specifically then I'll definitely reply back with "required" intensity.

    Stay away!
