    Question Need a good family car in range of 300,000-325,000

    Dear Members!!

    Salam, and I hope you are all doing well. I am in need of a good family car in range of Rs 300,000- 325,000. Please note that this is the FIRST TIME i am buying my own car and THIS MONEY IS ALL I GOT for a car purchase and I can't afford wasting it on a bad decision. Also i cannot afford to spend more on the repair and the related issues that usually come with a used car. I would appreciate and be thankful for your kind suggestions and offers in this regard. Infact i had made up my mind for Santro 2001-2002, Chevrolet Exclusive 2004-2005.
    Most of the people suggested Khyber or Mehran but as i have to travel alot and on long routes, i don't think these cars of much comfort (just my opinion). Keeping the resale issues ASIDE and keeping in view my BUDGET, please help me in this regard.

    Looking forward to your kind suggestions & sensible offers.

    Kind Regards
    Ibne Shah
    Islamabad

    considering ur circumstance...this investment will be ur main capital.

    so it very important u make a sound investment. which you can cash when ever required.

    keep 2 words in mind


    "Suzuki"

    &

    "as new as possible"

    the only place wheare you can realy invest is as it is low budget to mantain and a good well mantained suzuki is any time cash.

    just make sure it is as new as possible.


    now bro u want a sound investment on a ltd budget and u want comfort also.


    make sure what u want u cant expect both on a fixed figure.


    now these are my suggestion,although i am staying abroad but still u can get more feed back


    Suzuki Alto. 2003 up

    Suzuki Alto 2006 up

    These 2 r sound investments any time cash.

    and if u want comfort and resale i think mergalla is ur best option but i cant say abt the resale and rest

    @ibne ... I drove Margalla 94 for 1.5 years and sold it a couple of weeks ago ... I would not recommend that you should go for it ...

    Reasons
    1. It is 19 years old car (Parts would already be over aged)
    2. Parts would be costly as compared to others in same price range
    3. Patrol/CNG consumption would be more .. (1300 Cc car) and common problem of heat up on A/C ...
    4. As now a days you might have to run it on patrol so fuel pump is definitely going to create problems
    5. Suspension of Margalla is/would be very good as compared to other cars but if there is slight work required it will cost of you more than others cars in this range.

    I would recommend do not go for very old car ... will create so much trouble as you have to travel alot ...

    If you are interested in getting margalla .. go to 98 model with very good condition.

    I sold my 94 margalla . a couple of weeks ago at Rs. 340K... and engine was totally down and suspension was also not good, however the rest was genuine was in a very good condition.

    If u r considering Khyber or Mehran in a budget of 325k then do consider Daewoo Racer . U can get one in v.good condition in 350k budget. This advice in based on my personel experience. I'v owned 5 different Daewoo Racer cars (own one right now as well) since 2001 and used them for more than 300,000 KMs. My first daewoo, which I purchased in 2001 (Zero Meter) is still with my brother and has been used more than 350000 KMs with just one engine overhaul and rest everything original.
    No comperison in comfort, power and space in this price range. DO Consider IT!

    Kia classic is the best you can get in this price range.

    Then the Daewoo racer.

    Don't go for any Suzuki car, specially Mehrans and Khybers, if comfort during a long trip is your priority.

    You can get a good conditioned Nissan Sunny 1986-1992 model in your range. Khyber is a good option too.

    Daewoo Racer and Hyundai Excel are comfortable sedans too provided if you find one in immaculate condition.

    Khyber - not bad at all. buy one in range of 250 K (forget which model) and spend about 35-50 (depending on condition and SENSE of mechanic) to make it brand new. this Is ONE car you can alway make brand new from every single smallest part! and even in genuine parts. Even the axles and suspension parts are still available which are pure japanese. - because this was a very popular car.

    If wiring is in bad shape, take advise of good electrician and just buy new wiring . you can buy all three parts, i.e. engine, mid wiring and back or just engine (front i.e.) and this is important. Your khyber will never stop in the road if maintained sensibly... NEVER. and there is no problem with long distance travel on this car. its comfy and you can simply make it more comfortable by modifying seats.

    Racer is something you MAY struggle in parts for and it can be problematic.

    Pakwheels is full do a price filtered search.

    Brother 3.25 is very good budget for family car like daewoo..My friend bought its last month in 2.75lac he is more than satisfy and he had done long route as well.no problem of heating etc.
    my advice is to search daewoo racer in green or silver color..Kia is also good option but hard to find good and clean specially in rwp/isl..
    both cars are good for family use so keep eyes on jang paper,olx,pakwheels inshallah you will get resonable deal..
