    Question Mehran for long routes

    Hello,

    I have just bought a new Mehran (just one month old), so my question is that can I take it to long routes? Like Multan to Faisalabad or Lahore means round about 300 - 400 Kms?

    Its all stock car, nothing has been changes etc... I guess being a newer car it should give me any trouble for atleast 3-4 years.

    Suggestion from expert members are required specially those who own a Mehran.

    Thanks!

Do expect unexpecting behaviour from this car,, this is my advise. and also travel with ur pocket full, maybe u can need road sie mechanic at any point.

    dude as per my observation before leaving give a goood check to your car...... n 500km is nothing for such cars but for safe side keeep an extra tube (even id you got tubless tyres), brake oil, engine oil, air filter, oilfilter, radiator cap, an extra wheel pana, 2 plugs, a piece of wire, and some other small things which can mess up......

    buss garii ko pyaaar n muhabbat se chalaiyega aap.

    carry such things for 1 or 2 times and after that you'll get to know each other and volla youll come to know how ur car lands u to your destination

    hope you get what i m trying to say


    Kind Regards:
    Shaikh Atif

    congrat dear, sure u can travel, i had this car from 2001 to 2005 and i drove many times between lahore - islambad, sure its small car so on long routs some time become tired, if ur car is with cng than no problem as almost every 100 km u have to stop for re-filling and at that time u can come out of car for streaching legs
    my advice is change its stock tires with some good soft ones like yokohama etc

    just to add for some one's benefit. i bought 2nd hand mehran 2006 in very good condition (petrol driven only). i serviced, tuned it. changed engine oil, break oil, gear oil, battery blah blah...imaginable. new tyres. then took it from pindi to peshawar. Result
    1. Wheel aligned tree-trunked.......
    next day...from peshawar to pindi Result.

    1. All of a sudden. complete engine oil finished.
    2. Engine started scary knocking sound
    3. Had to toe it from attock to pindi
    4. Still parked at my porch and m using bike. (mechanic says 25k plus has to be spent and i aint got no penny)

    Note: i drove 100 - 120 kms / hour

    Translation
    1. Mehran not for long routes
    2. If at all there is no work arround then...
    a. Change engine oil b4 long route
    b. keep checking engine oil on the way
    c. In no way cross 90 km / hour
    d. Give rest to vehicle like 3 to 4 times
    e. Dont keep car in 4th gear and on 90 km/h speed for more than 20 mins. lower speed every 20 mins
    f. Keep checking battery and radiator


    Sorry...but i m scared hell of this vehicle. it could be very good poor-mans-companion with in city....but outta a city. i would seriously think about other options.....

    Good Luck.
