    Default Suggest me a Car in 700K Budget

    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

    definetly liana
    rolla 2000 is just **** specially interior wise
    lancer has even more bad resale then liana
    city dont know about 2002 model but 2003 to 2005 is just a joke

    in term of speen i think if liana would have only 4 gear even then she eats up city ealsiy

    liana grip n too good then idsi in idsi if u turn at little bit high speed u become the bob of pedulum

    @Huzaifaa: I have heard that Liana has problems with CNG and its maintenance is quite expensive. I am also thinking of Baleno.... What is your suggestion in this regard.

    I want to keep that car no more than 6-8 months, so resale value is also a important factor for me

    Better ground clearance is also major factor for me as the roads are too bumpy in my area.

    How about the fuel efficiency of Civic on CNG as well as its maintenance, Since 99-00 is quite old, I think its maintenance cost will be high as compared.

    Lancer 2004(Although i think u'll not find it in 700k)
    City 2000-2002

    I'll give priority to Lancer, because its a japan assembelled car. The drive of Sunny/Lancer is much much superior than any of these local assembelled cars.
    Don't worry for resale as u r already buying a used one.

    But how about its maintenance cost (prices of its spare parts & their availability) and availability of mechanics. I usually travel out of city from RWP - Lahore or Multan, so how about road side mechanics support for this car?

    maintaince is not as that high but should not b equall to khyber mehran or fx as it is a big car
    baleno is good too n is superior to liana in terms of grip n speed else is liana is good in all aspects specially interior is sexy

    Go for city whichever model comes in your range if not then go for liana.
    Also consider civic1999-2000 models.

    I honestly don't know about Lancer. As for sunny, i own one (2007 model) and its maintenance cost is cheaper than honda, even its spare parts are easily available and cheaper than honda, u can easily find them in saddar rawalpindi. I have it for more than 4 years now, and can't stop loving its drive.
    As for road side mechanics, i didn't face a single problem yet, so someone else can probably tell u better about that.
