    Default The used car comparision, Small Hatch Back

    We all know that Daihatsu Mira is the new craze these days as its simply affordable and caries a very competitive prize tag when compared to cars priced localy.

    On my analysis, when studying about a 2006 1.3L Belta i found out that in Pakistan one can find a used 2006 Honda Civic 8th Gen in the same price as of a 2006 Used JDM Belta. Which obviusly looks like a more chilling option.

    Here i was just in market to look at Mira. A good 2008-2009 (thats only 3 years old) Mira can be found around 7.25-8.25 lacks.

    And i guess a Cultus 2008-2009 falls in the same category as well.

    What do u guys think is a better idea a Pakistani used 2-3 year old Cultus or a JDM used Daihatsu Mira.

    Lets give suggestions and feedback.

    PS: Im not looking forward to buy a car, its just a thought.

    PS: Dont just start with Cultus is better. Or JDM ROCKS... give justifications as well.

    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.

    selection will varies from person to person ..
    I will consider cultus over mira ... as its looks bigger and economical ... plus suzuki 3S are available so that we may able to get regular maintenance/service/repairing from them ... and this car can also be handled from a selected road side mechanic as well ..


    yes Mira has an advantage of JDM .. but its small .. and expensive spares with availability on selected shops... wht the price of body parts like bumpers ?? lights ?? and yes side mirrors as this can be stolen at any time in our country

    very good analysis and my mind also goes with your thoughts, sure no comparison of jdm quality with cultus but still if we look at re-sale value, easy maintenance, easy avilability of spares etc a clean cultus would be better choice
