    Default I hope someone replies this time, suggestions on which car to buy

    Hello everyone,
    I m reposting this again since no one replied earlier.....
    I want a car that is under 1 million ruppees. The things that I consider are ;
    1. Fuel economy
    2.Problem free , unlike my cultus 2003 that I m exchanging it with.
    3.Shape
    4. Built quality
    5.Should be able to do 500 Kms long drive. As I go to interior Sindh thrice a year.

    Ok, the cars that I like are;
    1. Toyota yaris , manual, runs on CNG as well so good fuel economy
    2.Toyta vitz , automatic , should be able to do atleast 15 km/l in Karachi.
    3.Passo, it's kinda nice but I like the Racy version, don't now if it is economical.
    4.Diahutsu Mira Custom, I was so impressed with the built quality and interior that I was almost buying it. I like the turbo intercooler version it costs me around 9.7 lacs...but I could get a yaris if I add some more money.Heres the mira custom that I liked :

    Get a honda city. You should be able to get 15km/l in it on highways and around 13 in city.

    Get a Vitz if its in your budget, avoid CNG in all japanese cars so they remain simple to maintain.

    Or else get a Passo
    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.

    Is passo more fuel economical than vitz? and how abt Mira custom?
    And which one is better yaris or vitz as yaris is manual and imported from UK, so any difference in the built quality?

    Mira Custom would cost you atleast 850, in that amount a 1000cc Toyota is alot better option. Even a Basic Passo would be better. Im not sure which car is better on fuel effiecieny, But mira with CVT can give you 15+, Vitz/Passo should manage 14 easily if you drive like its meant to be. my 2002 Vitz manages 14-14.5 with A/C in City driving.

    Vitz however crosses the 9.5 lack margin. But yes its resale is alot better, Passo is gaining visibility, since their arnt any local cars in the 7-9 lack range. Mira and Pasoo seem great options.
    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.

    there is no car which is problem free unless brand new. a used JDM orphan car by all means is GAMBLE either it is repaired or some problem pop after few thousand kilometers run. why are you selling Cultus.? bad maintenance or tin box mechanic sliced you big time. did you purchased cultus brand new or used?

    Will 1300 cc vitz be more fuel efficient than 1000? Have heard that 1300cc has a better fuel economy. And also tell me if 1300 cc costs more than a 1000 cc vitz?

    I purchased it brand new. The thing is that Cultus is a dabba and yeah, I haven't maintained it that well too....i had to change the gaskit twice last year when i was travelling to interior sindh some 500 kilometers. When u drive the car on bumps, everything vibrates so bad and that annoying sound just makes u feel like sitting in a Suzuki fx lol... I have a 1995 mini pajero and its 100 times better than my 2003 cultus when going on a long route.

    Just want to get a rid of my cultus.... JDM cars , even if they are repaired, they do a better job than the locally made cars.
    The only thing that cultus has is that it's very economical....
