    Default car for my teenaged son

    Hey guys, I have to buy a car for my son. So I need some opinions. Budget is around 500k. Second hand cars would suffice as long as there aren't many issues with them and are islamabad registered. My son is very interested in 4x4's. So please some good recommendations and offers would be much obliged.

    i also wanted my first car to be a 4x4 but
    4x4's are an expensive to buy and run
    get him a slightly used suzuki Mehran
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    this topic sounds like its about someone I know. Anyways, the kind of 4x4's that would fit your budget would be a maintenance nightmare for someone whose owning a 4x4 for the first time. My suggestions, get a nice cheap 660cc jap import. and once your son is proficient enough, you can upgrade or get a 4x4.
    I hope its safe to assume that your son has a driving license

    I don't think this is a good idea at all. Pay a visit to various Markaz's in Islamabad between 9am to 2pm and see what teenagers in school uniforms are doing there. Rest is your decision and training.

    Honda Brio is a very good option to go with the defined budget. And if you want to go for 4x4 car then Mahindra Thar is good option to go for. But I prefer to go for Honda Brio because of its style comfort and features as well.

    Buddy, I'm pretty sure he is talking about Pakistan so Mahindra is out of the question. I love the XUV by the way.
