    (Y)go for it..for 2 reasons

    1)its cheaper then most local cars,which happens to b crap.u wud hardly get a cultus in this price.which happens to b a real **** these days
    2)even if the saga is ****(which i hope it isnt) even then u arent in a loss,u hav a seden wid many more options.if u had opted for cultus,that wud have had many problems too...so,never mind....

    7.68 lacs is a big amount (not for this car but when you try to cash it you ll get good 2 to max 3 lacs for it (Y)

    Why dont you go for a Liana you may find a 2007 - 2008 Liana for that much (Y)

    ^yeah resale wud b an issue...
    if u want it,dn go for proton,even liana.

    nd go to the dealers nd ask them to show u the parts inventory,or make sure by another way that they hav basic parts available at all times....nd aslo ask them abt the service charges for tune ups etc...

    but mind u,if u want resale,dnt even think about this car,just go for any suzuki or a 05-06 city idsi...they hav decent resale value...liana wud b nice too but resale isnt that good.

    7.68 is a big amount but not big when it comes to 1.3 sedans. this is the cheapest 1.3 in Pakistan. The next New sedan from Local brands stands over 10 lac.


    If resale is not in consideration, spare parts are available then go for it. Much better than Cultus.

    hey...i have got one...probably the only one on Pakwheels and being impartial i'd say it's far better than cultus. It has more power and more comes as standard compared to cultus. u probably won't believe me but i have getting it's parts cheaper or at roughly the same price than an alto from the market. I have it now for 2 years...No problems whatsoever. if you want more info then mail me at 666.butt@gmail.com

    ^^ NO!, that's what i'm saying...Lancer and proton worked together in their early days...so it has all the parts of a lancer...and so not only the parts are widely available, they r quite cheap!!





    u just need to make the right choice fr the parts.for instance if u want ur corolla to get repaired, the dealership charges u well above the market rates! so u should be a little vigilant.

    The main problem with comparisions is that people by default assume that Japanese/ American/ European . cars are superior to any other cars made on the planet. This assumption comes to naught when you compare the Japanese cars being produced in Pakistan.

    The reason I myself am looking at Proton is of my experience with Daihatsu Cuore. I simply don't understand why I should pay so much for a 20yr old car, same with Cultus. And if you are willing to pay so much for these cars then what is the problem with paying for Proton? Well actually Proton Saga costs less then the Cultus.

    No other Pakistani car is providing so much for this price.The God Damned Cuore comes without a steering lock!!! and still you would see people asking for more safety/ security features from a Saga and yet not mind paying so much for a Cuore. Their problem is that they have decided that Proton (or Cherry for that matter) are defective because they are not from a company in Japan or Korea or America and no matter what Adam, Proton, Cherry produces they prefer to keep their heads in their asses.

    Don't even get me started on the 'service' from dealerships. Everything sucks in the automotive sector in Pakistan, we as a nation are being conned into paying exorbitant prices for shoddily built cars which would be illegal to sell in many countries.

    So with the price tag of 7.2something (without CNG) I am going to give it a try, hope my bank is willing to finance it though.

    Salam everyone,
    I finally took the plunge and bought a Saga. Well nothing to shout about, it is just OK and fine with the money that I had. I am a facing a problem in that it is scraping every speed breaker (hump) in site. Anyone face similar issue? Searching on the internet I did not find anyone else with this problem. I suspect that the middle part of the exhaust is low, anyone have a pic of their car's underside. Anyways would call up the dealer tomorrow.
    Thanks

    prodrive should be able to help you out there. Try contacting him directly. Or have your exhaust pipe checked and see if it needs to be adjusted.


    Also, do provide your comments about the Saga overall. How is it with drive and performance etc??? Do tell...
    Till Later,

    OK I contacted the Proton dealer he said they would increase height by installing spacer, they are doing it for free, that is a good thing. Bad thing is they should have installed the spacers before delivering, considering that most roads here are uneven. In my opinion the minimum ground clearance for cars here should be 170mm, Saga is 135mm and with a full tank and 5 ppl it is low.
    Frankly I did not drive the car much as don't have the license plates yet. Would keep you guys posted after I take it for a spin on the Weekend.

    PS: prodrive does not seem to be checking the email address he gave.
