    Default New Gli VS old shape premio

    I would soon Inshaalalah be buying a new car,and want to choose between the following 2 cars

    New Gli. Or the old shape premix 2007 with least mileage (less than 50k) and at least 4.0 grade

    I would like to have your valuable suggestion on the pros and cons of each, especially is it worth buying a 5 year old premioinstead of the new Gli.

    Will the premio remain touble free like a new car for at least 5 years to come

    Budget for both is 17lakh

    make a choice base on following scenario:

    You have made up your mind for marriage - there is a charming lady you are infatuated with but she is divorced after few years but since its your life your parents are quiet and willing to accept your decision.

    where as your parents have selected a girl attractive acceptable never married and by all norms will fit in the family to be your wife


    TXT IS IN WHITE COLOR - Corrected after qortepao tip
    - make a choice -

    a used roughed up tempered auction sheet tampered odo meter, repaired 2nd hand car with no guarantee warranty & expensive on maintenance

    a brand new with warranty & Current year model

    however its your money your choice ! thats a 2 paisa suggestion if it counts

    dont Consider GLI ever, stealing it is as easy as stealing candy from baby....

    Consider Axio fresh import and buy from reputed dealer minimum 4.5 grade as those cars are driven around 80k...
    Premio is over priced people are asking around 17 to 19 for it, i would suggest you can find some old model imported in 2006 but with maintained history.

    Qortepao SIR - POINT understood !


    since the BOSS Qortepao has recommended a USED JDM based on candy stealing from baby then please see what the member SHARABHI has to offer you in that 1.7 mil price range. So far he is turning honest to everyone seeking his help.

    you are comparing a horse ( Premio ) with a donkey ( Corolla ) .. go for Premio if you want to drive it on petrol + need a auto transmission .. and corolla if want cng and a manual tranny .. and if need more resale value than better quality

    I can get a good axiom for less than the price of premio, but premio is much much better and high grade tha axio and if Ian buying a used car and I have a budget to buy premio then I think premio is a much better choice than axio which is similar in interior shape of new Gli, therefore aim not considering axio

    I would consider if I can find a clean unregistered premio below 50k mileage and clean interior and at least 4.0 grade

    The qyestion that comes to my mind is
    1. Would this low mileage Japanese made and Japan road driven car give me 5 years of trouble free service like a new Gli?
    2. How expensive would be maintenance be as compared to new Gli?
    3. Any other comparisons which pw members may share

    Considering the underpowered Gli, Premio or Axio both be decent options, (if you find a geniune/Orignal car, Body touch up arnt the issue, The issues are mechanical and accidental)

    Searching one would only cost you time and effort, If you dont find a good one, The new ones are avalible you can get the Corolla any time.
    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.

    a) Yes 5 years is nothing.
    b) If you find the desired car, Oil, Plugs, filter changes are enough for 5-7 years, That is with regular periodic maintainence
    c) These cars arnt too very expensive, Spares come from Singapore/Malaysia/Thailand/Taiwan of different qualities and are not very much expensive. Since local cars Honda/Toyota mostly have imported parts on them (headlights/Bumpers etc) (atleast they claim tobe) so prices of the spares are pretty much competitive.

    The only issue arises if you are new car fanatic, A used car is a used car,

    PS: Ull miss the autotranny in a local assembled Gli 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.
