    Default Prius, Civic or Mercedes Benz? Suggestions please.

    Aoa,

    Dear fellows my younger bro wants to replace his swift with a new car now. We have a budget of 16-18 lakhs max, we are thinking of buying any one of the following three cars:


    1. Toyota Prius T-Spirit or T4 (2007-2009)
    2. Honda Civic Vti Oriel Prosmatec (2008-2011)
    3. Mercedes Benz C-class (2001-2003)


    What do you guys suggest? This car will be a daily runner. Economy is not an issue as he is using swift currently and we all know how good it is on petrol..:p My brother personally wants the mercedes, but clean ones are rare to find. Your input will be much appreciated. Waiting for your reply.

    Regards,
    Jahanzaib Munir.

    The older ones, W124, W201, W140 are also pretty neat but require lengthy diagnostic procedures, the common factor with all models whether late or old is NEVER to use cheap counterfeit parts on them, unless you like to burn money.

    For DD in Pakistan buy a standard corolla/civic etc, keep it in tip top shape by utilizing the local availability of all kinds of spares for them. This wont be possible with the JDM orphans that are flooding the Pakistani market (read as junk cars)
    it is fun indeed

    black smoke can also be caused due to cool operating temperatures... which is happening in your car, right @Xulfiqar?

    yeah that might be it, but I just noticed yesterday it is leaking oil from the manifold inlet hose pipe. :/
