    Default Hyundai santro in 2014

    Hello Pakwheel gang!

    I have a budget under 6 lacs and going for a used Manual Santro Exec. I would like your valuable opinion on the following;

    1. What is the future of this car? Would spare parts be difficult to find and maintain?

    2. Is the Exec version better than Club?


    3. What is the feul economy when run on petrol? I want to run it on petrol.

    4. Which year model can I expect to get?

    Anything else I should consider when buying ?

    Looking forward to your replies!

    1. What is the future of this car? Would spare parts be difficult to find and maintain?
    Every maker change its model/ shape after some time, that doesn't mean parts are gone from market, Many people maintaining and using 80s / 90s model in well maintained condition, because parts are available in local market with China / Japan / Malaysia / Korea / used old parts market and also local made. The main thing is MODEL was successful or flop at the time it was introduce. We have a example of Spectra that was flop and we all know how these car owners managing to maintain their cars.
    2. Is the exec version better than club?
    Exec version is better in term of ps + pw back spoiler etc..
    3. What is the feul economy when run on petrol? I want to run it on petrol.
    in summer with ac on max i get is (12-13 city) (15-16 long route) km and with ac off (14-15 city) (18-19 long route)
    4. Which year model can i expect to get?
    if looking for a out class genuine ride.. The 05-06 and if you can accept some touch ups / painting / denting work done then 2006-2008.
    anything else i should consider when buying ?
    try to find a low millage car, genuine condition, even you can go for 2003-04 if a genuine low millage found. It will be peace of mind. Or you can just ignore one or two piece touch up with upper year model. don't be in hurry for buying a car.. Be patient and visit market, sunday jang news paper, olx and pakwheels / all resources to find a good ride..
    looking forward to your replies![/quote]

    best of luck for your search.

    One more thing: As you live in Lahore, try to get Lahore Reg car or Isb Reg Car. Ignore all other cities Reg number like Karachi, Multan, Sialkot ETC

    There is no such thing is problem in maintenance.. its a local car and all parts available in the market, China, Malaysian or Korean Parts easily available in market and Santro parts also available in Old spare markets like Bilalgang Kabli spares market in Lahore.. Its very easy to maintain a Santro.

    Great answer FaizanAli. Thanks for your time.

    The ad says brilliant car, taken care of, no work required, genuine condition etc.

    Jab gari dekhney jao to muamlah hee kuch aur. All cars look good in pics ! Haha

    Apart from PakWheels classified section, newspaper and OLX where do you guys look to find a great deal?

    I think majority of the people are misguiding you. If they mean a road side mechanic who can fix their mehrans and fxs easily then it is true, the Santro is not a car upon which you have to do experiments, you can find the new spares in every big city like, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Karachi, Faisalabad, Multan and list goes on. I had Santro with me for last 6 years and it never disappointed me at any point only you have to do is to do regular check ups and relie on a single mechanic.
