    Default If you were in my place, what will you do?

    Assalamallaikum, Dear fellows, I have a budget of 475,000 and i want to buy a vehicle that can give me best value of my budget. Before recommending, Please read following points as you will know where i am standing at.

    1. I am a new bie, i mean this will be my very first vehicle, I dont even know how to drive a car.(I may need to take some friend with me who will drive car at my home with me first. lol, may be funny for you but its fact) I dont know how to maintain a car either.
    2. I am not a rich person, i mean the budget I have mentioned is hard earned money )
    3. I live in a well populated area or Faisalabad, not a colony. You know galian, mohalla, tang more etc etc.
    4. Do you think i should wait a few months and gather some more money to get a better vehcile? btw I dont know why but most people say your first vehicle shoudn't be very expensive.
    5. Last, I dont like MEHRAN or Khyber.. So please recommend any thing but mehran.

    Get a Khyber for around 200k. Save the rest of the money and when you're good at driving, you can opt for something better.

    What? you want to play derby in faisalabad streets...

    Even if you want to, you should get a soft body and strong chassis car... easy to take out the dents and safe for you....

    I will suggest you a swift 89 or pre 95 khyber but in better running condition... much easy than mehran to learn driving on it...

    since you'll be learning how to drive, get a mehran. Easy to maintain and even easier to sell. Initially you'll end up banging your car a lot so you need something you can get repaired easily. once you've settled down into driving, you can upgrade.

    Buy a volkswagon Beetle.
    It would be cheap, plus it is the most safe car for a new bie.
    A beetle is an easy car to drive and maintain. You will find one in good condition for under a lac and would be a good starter car as far as I have experienced the parts sometimes do become a problem but if you are living in karachi then they wont be. Mechanic is also a little problem but mostly mechanics do it plus if you keep it with care it wont need a mechanic. Beetle is a lovable car and would be extremly good if you keep it plus it makes you unique and the drive is superb. If you get interested let me know i will find a car for you. Else then this I read thread regarding a car called cherry QQ find that if you like
    Vision, Control, Determination are three components of modern day race car driving... Speed is a by product.

    Thanks for the replies fellows, Actually i am more confused now,
    I already know mehran is no doubt the best choice for a new bie like me but i will need to keep this car for two years minimum and i dont want to stick with a tin pack which heats up like hell in summer without any AC. I know there is some thing called AC inside Mehran but a number of my friends have mehran and non of them is satisfied with their AC infact many dont even bother to turn it on as they say its useless, it just wastes gas and petrol, nothing else.
    secondly, i cousin of mine got injured in the mehran due to a motorcycle crash from side door, and you know what? my cousin got more injured that the motorcycle dude who crashed in his Mehran. So my cousin says no matter what, you shoudnt go with mehran. He says Coure has much better doors and body than mehran and AC is also good.

    continuing my post, I dont want to become special by getting khyber or beetle or things like that as I am going to travel with my family and I dont want to catch public eyes.
    here is what i think about the cars bellow, but ofcourse only those members can verify who have actually driven these cars.
    1. Cuore, i personally like this car very much but i am concerned about the space in it, Is it too small, even smaller than mehran? I have heard that its spacious than mehran from inside, is it true? Another thing, what about cuore AC? if i get a 2006 or 07 cuore in my budget do you think its AC will work enough to cool all the person inside, especially back seats? and what is status of body of cuore, is it heavy of tin like mehran?
    2. Cultus, my friends say that i can even have a cultus in my budget and it will be 2003 or 04 model, Do you think i should go with a 2007 cuore or a 2004 cultus? what about cultus body, is it stronger than cuore?
    3. Alto, alto can easily be arranged in my budget but i have heard that its body is very weak, just a little stronger than mehran secondly it is not very comfortable???
    4. Santro, I also like santro but i have heard that its out of production now. Spare parts are expensive and cars back seats are not even remotely comfortable??? is it true?
    Please Advice as i have only heard above points and i dont have any experience myself
