Dear all senior members. I need suggestion regarding buying a car. My budget is 9 lacs. I have a small family. I dont really need to buy a big car. But if a used big car like honda city 2005-7 model is almost as costly as buying a small car and is almost as economical as a small car with relatively more comfort. Then why shall i not buy a big car. The only thing i am worried about is the maintainance. Ofcourse maintainance of honda is costly but to which extent? I need ur suggestions and comments in this regard.
Yes, maintenance of honda city is costly as compared to small cars but parts are of good quality, so they last long, here is a list of parts that one of PWs is planning to buy for his Honda city vario 2004. they might give you an idea of the price of Honda city parts
1. Rear Wheel Hub Bearing=4650rs
2. Lower arm bush 2= 1500
3. Balance rod bushes=750
4. Cvt gear oil= 3360
5. Wheel alignment= 500
Thank you fawad and firewater i can afford to spend upto a 50 k a year for maintenance.So i think city is the very right choice . My next question is that how to hunt a good car. Somebody told me to buy from a show room as it is secure. But i personally beleive that i can get a good od one from pakwheels, olx or jang classified. Need your opinion in this regard
