    Question Kia Pride?

    I am planning to buy a hatch back and my budget is around 2.25K. In that budget the car that is gaining my attention is KIA's PRIDE apart from mehran and charade,etc. However I am not sure how this car is overall? Although it is basically a Japanese design, MAZDA 121. I have following questions about the car:

    1. How is the car in terms of performance?
    2. Are the spare parts easily available?
    3. What about lights and bumpers? Are their thai or taiwan replica's available in the market?
    4. Are the spares too expensive?

    NOTE: I am not too much concerned about the resale!

    Thank YOu

    A co worker owns one. Though it's in a very bad state, it still goes like stink. The owner has neglected it beyond imagination; bad ball joints, busted shocks, leaking radiator, engine spewing out oil, beat up body, every worse thing you can think of! It's currently in the process of getting an engine overhaul as the engine was in such a bad state that the car refused to start one day because there was no compression in the cylinders. He never checked oil or coolant/water, drove the car for 3 years straight on CNG. Never replaced tyres, never changed oils, or anything electrical. But the car still did a 100 kph pretty easily, and despite the busted suspension, rode pretty good. That busted car, drove better than a brand new Mehran. I can attest to that!

    1-First off, it's a Ford Festiva, designed and powered by Mazda.
    2-Performance wise, it's better than anything within this budget, better than a Charade or Mehran. Ride is very comfy, engine pulls very strong, fuel consumption on both Petrol and CNG is very good, remember this is a 1.1L SOHC engine.
    3/4-Spare parts are easily available from Plaza, including exterior/interior and engine parts. Suspension parts might not be that easy to find or be cheap. But everything is still available qabli.

    Also, the AC on this car is very good, cools pretty well. Because the engine is 1.1L, it does not struggle too much on AC.

    That sounds amazing! I have a pity on your co-worker's poor KIA.
