    Default a million budget and still nothing to buy :(

    Dear All,

    I am planning to buy a car but unable to find a good option. please help me select a good 1. Here is my criteria.

    1- I was planning to go for swift but being PS, is starts making noises after 10k kilometers plus a bit sluggish around 2000-2400 rpm which is my usual driving range.

    2- a good iDSI city upto 2008 is not available under 60000 mileage.

    3- Cant go for JDMs since they are a pain when selling since i will keep the car for 1.5 years at max.

    4- I hate corolla.

    I know that I am being toooo choosey but bhai log will understand since it is my hard earned million rupees so i wont settle for something i dont like or isnt worth the amount.

    Thanks

    Whenever a bird shits on my car, I eat a plate of scrambled eggs on my front porch just to let them know what I'm capable of...

    go for a Toyota probox . you can find a good car in around 9-950k. gives good mileage and sells easily as well

    City 2006-2007 is a good option but definitely it would be driven around six digit figure. I would recommend Swift because of low mileage and sorry I don't agree with your noise and sluggish comment because at this rpm every car will act the same. Swift on this rpm can easily touch 70mph. Furthermore I have driven my swift 32K kilometers, from the day I first drove this car from the showroom till now its drive is exactly the same, rather it has improved...

    Always go for zero meter car if u wanna keep it for minimum 6,7 years, it wont tease u for 4,5 yrs eaisly regarding mechanical problems,, but if u wanna sell it after 1.5 yr then Xli is the best option in this range because i think the only car that has got Max resale value in Pakistan is Xli no matter when is it produced it always sells at good price..

    Brother a million rupees can buy you a 2011 Swift, 2009 Vitz / Passo, 2007 Altis auto, 2006 Oriel Prosmatec, 2008 Steermatic / Vario.

    You can also have non market cars like a 10 gen Toyota Crown S150 1996 model with 1GFE 2.0L 6 cyliner engine.

    Toyota Mark II Grande 1996 with 1.8L 4S FE engine.

    Toyota Land Cruiser 3 door 1986 J70 with 2.4L diesel 2L engine.

    8th Gen Mitsubishi Galant 1996 with 1.8L 4G93.

    Honda Accord CF-3 2000 model with F18B.

    Also a W202 Mercedes 1996 C180 or C200 diesel model.

    The question is what do you want to buy and for what purpose.

    hi Guys, I am in the same situation as c4capricon as my budget is 1 million rupee max(all inclusive registration,insurance,blah blah) but I have some more concerns.

    I don't live in Karachi, I am buying a car just for my sister and mother. My sister has to go to office and then uni in the evening, and then the usual travelling to markets etc. My sister doesn't know how to drive so she will learn to drive with this car we are buying. I want the car to be hassle free(you know how girls are).

    Features I want (priority (high)1-7(low) )
    --------------------
    1) Power steering
    2) Automatic
    3) Some sort of security like Immobilizer so it won't start even if hot wired.
    4) Repair (ager lag laga jae to repair ho jae aaraam se and parts mil jae)
    5) Fuel Economy should be OK - Only petrol, NO CNG
    6) Maintainance should be not not that expensive
    7) Resale

    In short please suggest a car which will be suitable for a beginner girl in karachi scenario. Please take into account all the situation of Karachi like theft, snatching, etc. I wan't my sister to be safe on karachi roads as well as have fun driving.

    Cars I have short listed and the things which are concerned in it
    1) Honda City iDSI (2005-2008) - Big Car so maybe my sister will have trouble - No Immobilizer
    2) Toyota Vitz/Yaris (please suggest model year) - Does it have immobilizer?

    Regards,

    Imran
