    Red face Buying a used car - Suggestions!

    Hello guys! Long time :p

    So I've been driving a crappy Corolla 99 XE for the past 2 or so years. I hate the car. Its interior is roughed up (was before I bought it), the engine is WEAK (doesn't go above 120 unless on a downslope - 140 in that case ), AC doesn't work.. and so on and so forth.

    Now, I want a new car. I'm looking to buy a used car that can run well on CNG (so Vitz automatically goes out of the equation). My price range is about 10,00,000.

    Give me your opinions. I've my sights set on the Honda Civic (2003-2006 I believe). Any headsup? Any thing to look out for?

    Also, what's the top speed I can get to on such a car on CNG? :p My travelling is usually from Wah to Islamabad on GT Road / Kashmir Highway. And sometimes to the KPK via motorway. I drive fast.

    Guys I really do need help! Clueless guy here. My brothers scare me that all the cars in the market are accidented or that the engine would be faulty and what not lol

    Also, what are the major civic models out there? Talking about ones in my range.

    I cant suggest anything, I get confused myself looking at local ads.

    One ad said brand new mazda rx8 import 2012 and price 19.5 k/-. and manufacture year was 2007. seems like no time passed between 07 and 12, and we are still in 07.

    At least it gives an idea, how tax , importers people are dumping all costs on final buyer getting rubbed in really bad. I felt sorry you take out so much money for a stock car and stil have to use it in public full of all sorts of transports and drivers.

    somebody droped a sharp metal scrap on road, and you drove on it with yr advan tires.. ouch! I could see how that wil hurt you
