    Default Lahore to Karachi on Vitz 05

    Dear PW members,
    I am planning to drive my Vitz 2005 from Lahore to Karachi in a couple of days, I need suggestions from you all on the pros and cons of this activity, few details which might help in coming up with a good suggestion are,

    70,000 kms done
    Engine in good condition
    Will get the tires changed before the journey along with other necessary check ups like oil, filter etc
    I have already done it twice, once on a Suzuki Cultus

    kindly reply as I have to make the final decision at the earliest

    Dont travel at night. Leave early and try to reach your destination before sunset. Better make a stop over at Panu Aqil or Rahim ya khan for the night. Also, buy jumper cables and portable air pump for your tyres.

    Sindh police is a nuisance. They will surely harass you. Another reason not to travel at night since they mostly disturb travellers at night. They have plenty of ways to make money. Its getting pretty late, will surely share my personal experience with you tomorrow.

    Recently I ventured in Sindh only from Karachi to Bhangu and I started my travel at 8:40 (I was on Super Highway) on my Belta and it was awesome on the highway. There's no problem during day time in Sindh, but at night you have to stop at some spot. I reached there in my CNG'd Belta at around 5 p.m, as I didn't know the way to the site. Next day I left at at 1 p.m noon and was in Karachi by 9 p.m (home) having stopped for CNG refilling and meals...

    do recite Ayat Al Kursi and Duaa e safar before leaving and try to leave for the journey at night (Punjab) so that you're in Sindh during day time.

    I think you should go by air the ticket is 14000 if you purchase one week before.same cost will incur if you go by car and it will take 22 hours to reach there by air it will take only 1hour and 30 minutes so choice is yours its a fair and sincere advice

    What if more then 1 people are going ?

    Plus its great to by car if time isnt a issue. Road trips are real fun, if you have decent company, And a comfortable car.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Leave Lahore around 12 at night. You will reach multan by 6-7 from there onwards its all day travel and you'll reach Karachi by 5-6 in the evening. I am assuming you have another driver with you.

    Sindh police is the worst, they will stop you and harass you, ask you for documents you have never heard of. Keep 500 rupees dedicated for them. The motorway police at Sindh is also v h****mi .They stopped and wrote me a ticket for travelling at 111 kmph & 113 kmph while i knew i was strictly travelling below 105kmph. You will also find fake police guys in Sindh so be careful. Roads are allright, i don't know the current condition of Multan by pass, i hate that patch of 100km its a single road with lots of tractor trolleys. Rest of punjab is cool.
