    Default Liana owners.... are you there?

    today we found a liana Lxi, 06 model and 08 rgd. It is maroon in colour and is really really scratchless. even the bumpers look like new. The odo metre is showing around 37000km. the cng was fitted after the purchase, hence its the normal landi kit. I took the test drive and felt few things that i want to discuss with you. The dealer is demanding 770k but he said that he can sell for 750k plus 10k comission minimum. Its still owned by someone else.(1st owner)

    1. The car ABS light was continuously on (on the speedo metre). when i braked hard the wheels jammed. Can this be fixed or its something like a major problem?
    2. The handbrake light on speedo metre used to be on even when i released the handbrake. again is this a big problem.
    3. i dont know any mechanic who can check it for me. is there anyone who can check in a professional way. (the car)
    4. The steering was very hard but the suspension was good. i dont know if all lianas has same sort of steering wheel as im comparing it with my platz, which has very soft.

    Please help me out. should i get this car or just turn my head? Btw my dad has offered him 740k (including comission).

    I used to want to change the world. Now I just want to leave the room with a little dignity.

    The price for a 2006 LXI after market CNG should be 7 lacs for a clean car.

    1. ABS light on : check the relay in fuse box, change it, if its still there then there maybe some problem with the ABS.
    2. Hand Brake light is on because the brake oil level is low, looks like owner didnt care much about car's oils.
    3. Hope someone from Lahore helps you.
    4. Steering of my rxi was very light, check the oil level of power steering too.

    then do you think that it was wrong to offer 740k? im sure that dealer would call us within some time. but the owner was not happy with it.
    Thanks!

    as its japan assembled car. i think the price is ok for the 1.6 model of it.
    for ABS light...get it checked by the dealer because there can be some sensor issue
    for the handbrake light... its small electrical problem
    for the steering stiffness, liana steering wheel is little harder than platz, 2000 civic and Vitz. as these three cars has the softest steering wheel.

    Remember...... Any light continuously ON indicates problem in the system. As said earlier, Handbrake light ON indicated system problem and most probably it will be low oil level if not worse. ABS light ON means your ABS isn't working. Keep this is mind for every type of dash panel lights, whether it is power steering, airbag, brake, ABS or any light. If its ON, there's an issue to be sorted out at the earliest

    No. its 1.3 version, pakistan assembled.

    @all
    no one told me the market value of the car. Each and every mechanic in the market says that dont buy liana for this that and those reason, they narrate horrible stories. but i disagree with them. Please share more experiences it'll help me a lot.
    Do i need to take the car to suzuki garage for ABS problem? and i have still not been answered about the steering wheel problem.

    Brother the problems you have listed like steering wheel and ABS can be costly if motor of either of those is faulty. Secondly i wont prefer that you should buy an after market CNG Liana as this car is never good on after market cng. And it is a very difficult car to be tuned perfectly on both on CNG and petrol at same time. So search for factory fitted Lxi you will find a good one. Best of Luck

    Exactly
    thats what I was about to say
    Non serious attitude towards these warning lights can result into something really bad so keep an eye on these warning lights and get the problem sorted out at the earliest
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    infact everyone (mechanics) was recommending me to buy after market cnged car as it is easily tuned. But you are saying totally against it so now can you give some reasons?

    Brother factory fitted cng is one of the main reason because of why i prefer Liana over any 1300cc cars. I have RXI Liana for a year now and its performing excellent on both petrol and cng. The rpm is contant 900 on both the fuels. Plus on factory fitted cng the car has seperate cng injector so they never disturb petrol ones. Plus you get perfect ride height as it is adjusted for the weight of the cylinders and the boot is more spacious and neat as the factory fitted car comes with two cylinder which is one over the other.

    don't know.. but price seems kinda little over...
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    If you have mentioned so much problems in the car why are you persisting with it? Looks like the owner wants to get rid it as the problems are beyond his control.

    Secondly in 750 to 775k you will get a decent City model 2005, much better option than Liana or go for Vitz or Platz, you will not regret.

    If you still wants to buy this car ask the owner to remove the problems, get it checked from Suzuki workshop and then decide. My brotherly advise to you.

    In the other forum i've told that i am a fan of lancer but the range is max 750. so if you can help me buy a 1.3l lancer then i'd be thankful
