    Default Advice Needed Swift DLX brand New or Vitz 1.0 3rd Generation or Any JDM sedan

    I am currently using Swift DX 2012 bought brand new 45000 km driven.Car has been reliable so far and I am completely satisfied.Now i want to utilize my savings and go for upgrade.

    Kindly suggest with sincere advice my budget is around 14 lacs.

    I am not getting any insurance so what i am buying should not be vulnerable to theft, so no city or corolla.
    Car should perform well on hilly areas

    My options

    1- Brand New swift DLX
    2- Vitz 1.0 3rd generation
    3- Any sedan/hatch worth 14 lacs

    I really like new VITZ 3rd generation but no idea how it would perform in terms of pick and climbing upward,
    My concern about 3rd generation Vitz is power to weight ratio.

    Thanks

If you read my previous comments I haven't said that there aren't any cons associated with swift. The choice will completely vary from scenario to scenario. BTW I have a Civic along with a City currently and I never take my city on long routes due to the back ache issue. That's the reason even after seven months my city still doesn't have 5000Km's odo.
    Hmm....

    No bro, this 'reborn' is usually used for Honda Civic fully loaded one.

    honda fit hybrid wont be a bad choice,
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    I don't like your budget. Too many options. :p
    I would personally go through the pain of trying to find a well kept '07/'08 8th gen Civic!

    First tell us that what are your priorities about the car? As in comfort, cheap spares, resell or..

    My Priorities are
    1 - Mechanically reliable
    2 - Good Solid drive handling ,road grip,braking and power
    3- Not good for thieves like corolla or mehran (I m not getting insurance)
    4- Resale
    5- Parts availability



    Thanks

    Honestly I don't see a car in your price range better than an 8th gen Civic!
    Obviously Corolla is a thieves fav so if you want something even more secure than the Civic your only option is to go low-key with a Swift.

    I'd say go for a clean Civic, you'll get one 2008 model in your range. But you'll have to search hard for a clean car (dont worry 2008's clean car will easily come in your budget infact you can even get 2009's model in.this range too)

    other option should be city.

    And know that civic has a bit expensive spares than city and corolla but ofcourse if you dont keep hitting here and there you wont have to buy head or tail lights or anything. Buy a trouble free car and you will just have to do normal maintenance like oil and filter changes.

    consider - the words - BRAND NEW & USED ( 3 year old with no track record of maintenance ) it will be a great help to utilise the capital investment with depreciation calculated

    Honda Civics (2008-2010) shape are still available in markets in mint conditions you just have to search harder.
