    Question Can I get a car under 2 lacs budget?

    Salam evry1!!!
    im nt new on pw, actually I had an account in 2008 (it wz much diff dat time, mashAllah kafi imprv & attractive ho giya ha pakwheels) bt coudn’t uz it regularly bkz of bz life. So I 4got ma uzr name & password

    Nw im back 2 learn 4rm senoirz & share my xperience abt vehicles.
    So bros! I’ve been on 2 wheeler (Honda 70) for yrs, nw im planing 2 get my 1st 4wheeler. I hd a dream 2 get Japani 660cc Alto in 2006, bt u knw dreamz r dreamz. In reality, I’ve managed 2 save 170,000 rupees only. dats embarrassment, I cheked da market, Sunday bzarz, adz n newz paperz & pakwheelz az well. But I unable 2 find a gud ride in dis budget. I vizited sm dealerz & wen I told thm I had just 1.7 lacs, many start laughing. Othrz showed me sm super rusted n accidnted FX nt acceptable 4 me.

    I askd ma frndz & relativez 4 openion, many sugst me 2 w8 untill I get at least 2.5 lacks evn 4 a 20+ yrs old car in gud condition. Othrz say I can get Khi No FX in gud condition n dis range.
    I’d prefer da 1st advice, but derz a problem. My sister goez 2 university n van, nt 2 far 4rm my office. nd total cost of bike petrol and van chargz r much more thn total CNG cost if v both uz personal car. plus our family need a car bkz geting a taxi z xpnsive nd uncomfortable.

    I’ve searchd da markt nd found:
    1: Suzuki Mehran 2000 & dwn model in perfect condition 250,000 plus
    2: FX in good condition (privately uzd bkz der r too many taxiz) 200,000 minimum
    3: Charade 84-86; 200,000 to 250,000 (I can gt diesel version in less than 200,000 bt 1 thing I can’t afford diesel nd othr even if I destry my budget 4 disel, still ppl say charad diesel z "Queen of troublez" so it’z out of my choice)
    4: Charad 81-82 da oldest model z under 150,000
    5: Swift/Khybr 89 to 90 in nrmal condition 200,000 +
    6: Subaro also rangz frm 160,000 to 230,000 but its back lites cost u more than 6000 and wind screen12000!!! (meanz dis car can destry my life)
    7: Toyota Starlet 74 (or may b 78) good condition 170,000 but it givz jst 13-14 kilometers in 1 kg CNG in city areaz. & ppl say parts r nt available so ezly.

    So only option no 4 fits in my requirement but ppl say der r vry few carz in gud condition and if I get a Mehran in 180,000 I can mak it new aftr spnding 40 to 50 thousandz. But if I get charad 82 for 120,000, evn aftr spnding 100,000 the car wd be uzless. Thy say "ye gadi tum se khati rahe gi aur end me tumare paas bike k paisy bhi nai bachen ge".
    I need ur advice!
    Regards,
    (Ali)

    Unhappy I need a SIMPLE bt CLEAN car!

    I saw a charad 84 with CNG in 165,000 n gud condition (xept broken back window nd steering problem) bt it wz 2 door, nt suitable 4 family.
    I’ve also seen a 4doors charad 84 original ptrol engine (No CNG till nw) wid oil leaking, sm rusty doorz (not too much), bend on left side (luk like shocks worn out) and broken lites. It z on 2nd ownr name, Multan no. dashboard is n very nice condition nd car z never got major accident and painted. Dat guyz final demand iz 110,000 (no CNG and lots of work!) a mechanic estimate its NORMAL restoration cost NOT less thn 80,000 rupees and if I want everythng GENUINE then 150,000 iz the estimate meanz 110 + 80 = 190 (dats min)
    Ok, stil I can arrang 180,000 but again ppl say sm thingz of charad 84 r nt available like rear bumper r too xpensive nd only frnt grill (which is broken) cost 2500 rupees
    So I dcided nt to buy dat charad nd consult pakwheels forumz 4 better advice. i m also searching old 4rums related 2 car restoration, sm r really helpful. I’ll try 2 get a better deal after Eid inshAllah, nw I need opinion 4rm u guyz.

    with 170,000 you can only get descent FX but still God knows how frequent it needs to visit workshop.

    But i would reckon to save some money around 2.75 lacs

    Best plan should be


    Buy Non accidental Mehran (94-96) should be under 1.75 lacs and add extra 1 lacs to restore as required , Parts are easily available and cheap and most of the mechanic knows how to fix this car

    Best of Luck !

    you are talking about 18km in 1kg cng. My khyber gives me 190+ in one cylinder and it fills in 8+ kg. which becomes about 24km/kg gas and that toot in city. i 33km daily.

    Back in University days i used to own a suzuki FX - We had that car in our use since 1988. It was 1985 Model in beige color.

    All four of us learned driving on it and it was also used by the driver. I got full rights on that car in 1999 at the age of 18. It used to have 100 rupees petrol in the tank which would end suddenly because of bad gauge. I would rotate the filter upside down to get to the nearest pump and then it would misfire because of all the kachra that made its way into the carb. i would then swap two plug wires to clean it, worked every time. In 2001 i spend 30k on it and got it painted and got the engine rebuilt since two of its three plugs had adapters installed because of oil seepage in to the plugs. To my bad luck may be i didnt chose the right workshop the car didnt run very well and i started encountering frequent problems with almost everything.

    Sold it for 65k and bought a 95 mehran in 2002 it was great, got it for 145k and installed CNG for 22k used it for 3 years and sold it for 162k. Spent literally nothing - Zero maintenance, great AC worked like a charm on CNG it was red in color and faded. I once drove it 25 KM with AC without a radiator cap. It stalled but started once cooled down after adding water. No Gasket Damage! Sold it in 2005 and bought a new alto drove it a 150k and sold it in 2010.

    Moral of the story -
    - You can get a car for 150k
    - You will have problems
    - You'll to learn ways to solve them
    - Requires patience and time
    - Its not like buying a pedestal fan that'll work forever

    My suggestion/Advise
    - Get a Mehran, Get one that is non accidented and with decent engine - It would do the job

    keep rest of your money in an envelope with car budget written on it. Don't go around spending it on toi toi alarm system, fancy chrome crap or dicho dicho sound system. Save it so that when your car needs that money you can use it freely instead of delaying repairs cuz of shortage of funds. 30 - 40k is alot of money for a mehru. try to acquire a 92 onwards model, you'll have to search everywhere to find a good car and it will a back breaking job. Don't worry if its LHR/ISB or KHI registered. You need a reliable ride in your budget, whocares about the registration ? It may have low resale but then again you will also be buying it at a lower cost so won't really make much difference.

    Wish you best of luck!

    Or you can just get that "bitchin" Sunny - I love that car, my uncle used to own it and it was heaven as compared to my FX.

    Brother honestly you can buy v.good condition Suzuki Fx from Karachi. I am in London but my friend can help you if you really want to buy a good Suzuki FX. Plus please never buy a car from any show room and any dealer.

    @OP
    a member levin was selling an old starlet on pakwheels.com a few months ago.you can ask him if it is still for sale. The car shouldn't be a penny more than 170,000 Rs which is your budget.
    PS: he is the same guy who asked you about grammar mistakes in this thread.

    Instead of pointing fingers on others, it would be great if you start taking English Grammar classes.
    We surely don't want to promote incorrect English and bad manners on Pakwheels.

    My opinion (and I've kept older ghorha and hathi cars so i say from experience); Because this is your first car, buy the one which is the newest from the bunch. Forget FX you can't find one in a decent condition now. No offence to anyone but they were pretty cheap and basic transportation back then and haven't aged very well (please don't preach to me, my father had 2 of them which he bought brand new and then sold later on). Stay clear from Charades as well. Try getting a car from the mid 90s atleast and find one which has the biggest support for spare parts.

    Choose between the 3: Mehran, Khyber or you can even buy a high roof, they're not bad cars. And teen dabbas or no teen dabbas, these are the cars that sell like hot cake here.
