    660cc is underpowered.
    In this price you can get a good 1300cc car
    The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it.

    Yes you are right but actually as I don't earn right now I think a small more practical jeep would be better. Those LCs are gas guzzlers and require heavy maintainance.
    in terms of 7liter per oil change etc. Also their spares need tobe searched but jimny's are readily available with paksuzuki. plus jimny would be better in resale. As I think I am getting one a bit lower than market price so Hope won't have to sell at loss if ever required to sell.

    @racer

    You are right JIMNY is quite torquey and can do much more than just a normal jeep! I think the price is OK as long as the vehicle is clocked with genuine millage. However if you are newbie in jeeps and want to do some fun apart from real off roading than its better to start with more cheaper alternative, i.e MINI PAJERO.
    Speed costs money. How fast do you want to go?

    A Bit of lc info, the 1kz prado gives around 8-10 with ac. which is similar to jimny.

    My Advice is find a 1.3 litre model i believe you can find one around 8.5 to 11

    Contact ghuncha aka Nashit Ashraf. He is the brand ambassador for Jimny. He will enumerate the pros of Jimny which even Suzuki walas won't know.

    Brother Jimny is way overpriced and outdated jeep.

    You can buy a 2005 Terious Kid for 7-8 lacs instead of throwing 2.4M on that stupid jeep.

    Jimny is only good for CSS officers because they have all the money of taxpayer to burn in fuel expenses.

    In 1.5M u can also get a 2004-05 Toyota RAV4 with 2.0L diesel/petrol engine.

    A 2007 Jimny imported in 2013, 660cc has much better torque and drive than its competition. Priced between 8.50 to 11 lacs this is the best off-roader and city SUV. Its also available in 1.0L, 1.3L and 1.5L. Depends on your requirements. The ones imported by Pak Suzuki in late 2007-8 for 1.0 M are now price at 2.0 M but better to buy imported ones. All its parts are readily available, both in chore bazar and with Pak Suzuki.

    I would still suggest you to meet Nashit. He will not respond via this platform. You will have to call him or SMS him or go to his house with some Nirala sweets. In his case nirala sweets mean some electronic gift like RPM meter or vernier's caliber.

    Jimny is a a perfect value for money it costs 2.2 million n ita off road performance is amazing , comparing it wid a terios kid or sumthing lyk dat is a shame ,
    Compare it to a brand new vigo , 70 series brand new 3 door n thn luk at jimny's price , it is value for money if ur gonna use it for off roading n rough terrain , nt just on paved urban roads

    People dont climb hills in Pakistan with a Jimny and people who do have much better SUVS like jeep wrangler or Pajero etc.

    Whatever unpavef roads Jimny can travel a Terious Kid can also travel.

    Do not misguide people about Jimny. it is not a Landrover.

    No one goes for serious off roading with 77 ft- lb of torque and 15 inch wheels or if someone does then it should not called off roading.
