    Default Advice required: engine overhaul or new car

    Dear members,
    I needed an advice. I have pakistani alto vxr model 2005. Its engine has become very weak and it requires overhauling. Can you please suggest that should i opt for overhauling or buying japense alto 660cc. Considering the fact that overhauled engine will provide better gas/petrol mileage. And japense alto is only on petrol and can provide max 17km/liter. I am confused, kind suggestion would be appreciated . Thanks

    Thank you sheikh sahb. One more question, is 660cc long term car? Considering we dont have well establiahed mechanics for this car and bad maintenance can lead to poor mileage which takes out most imp adv of this car.
    Wats ur opinion

    Change is always good brother, if it doesn't drastically affect your budget. If the car has a weak engine, it will have weak this and that also. So instead of spending on repairs, spend on a new car.

    These 660 CC cars have EFI engines and many expert mechanics (especially in big cities) are available for such engines, so there should not be any such issue. These cars need same care and maintenance like any other car and can surely serve u for years if kept properly. Poor milage is not only because of bad maintenance and one important factor is driving style. most of these imported 660CC cars have automatic transmission, which need a different driving attitute to get better fuel economy.
