    Hi All,

    I am planning to buy a car but need feedback from you guys, I have a budget of 700k and I am looking for a 1300cc sedan. Following are main features that I am looking:

    1. Good fuel economy on CNG and Petrol
    2. Low maintenance cost and cheaper spares
    3. Easy to find good mechanics
    4. Good braking system
    5. Good ground clearance when driven with 5 peoples
    6. Easy to find good mechanics.



    The cars that i think can arrive in my budget can be:

    Lancer 2004
    Liana 2006
    City 2000-2002
    Corolla 2000

    Please advise me what are the other options available for me in this budget and what will be the estimated market prices of these cars in good condition.

    Also please share your experience with these cars and suggest me the best option.

    Thanks in Advance

    Saad

    I would recommend going for Honda City, whichever model comes within your budget.

    Bad brakes have been an issue in previous models of Corolla, otherwise, Corolla has been on top overall.

    I would recommend staying away from out-of-market cars. They are difficult to maintain, and parts availability also becomes an issue with some models. Resale value of out-of-market cars causes serious heartburn.

    I would recommend Nissan Sunny 2004-5 although not listed here.
    The second option will be corolla 2000 if available. All other cars have unacceptable drawback like Liana has serious issue of ground clearance & availability of mechanic + no pleasure in driving . Go for Baleno 2005 if u really want to buy suzuki. It is excellent & u can buy a good one in 615-650. Lancer parts are toooo cosrly + not a reliable vehicle + no mechanics

    Salam,

    First, kindly check point 3 and 6. Same hainn
    Secondly if u can compromise on below than Lancer is the best.

    2. Low maintenance cost and cheaper spares
    3. Easy to find good mechanics

    Very rare to find coz ye kabi kabar milti hen. PW ya newspaper pe jis din aati hen next day call kro to sale ho chuki hoti hen... & still our people complain for no resal value.... I have myslf witnessed a Sunny 2008 being sold at 12.5 lakh before 12 noon through Jung sunday magazine.... Can PS or Toyota or Honda can claim this resale value while the new one bought in 2008 would have been around 10???

    Sir Nissan Sunny is very good, but you cannot buy one for less than 750K Rs even in Karachi.

    N16 was only available for sale locally from 2005 onwards.

    There is no difference in Lancer and Sunny, both are imported, both have expensive parts and no resale.

    2003 Vario or 2001 EXi PROSMATEC are aslo in the range, but in KHI only.

    So your real competition is between an Indus GLi and City EXiS.

    Indus Corolla has really cheap parts, but its merits ends there as it is no match for the D13 and neither it has the option of A/T.

    Corolla 2000 and City 2000-2002 seems a bit too old in my opinion. Two of my friends got Lianas both 2007 models and they are happy with their cars.
