    Default Which car to buy (Urgent)

    Hi ,
    I am in very confusing situation now a days regarding purchase of new car.Before that i am using Mehran Euro II 13.Which is very nice car for daily driving in city and giving avergae of 17-18. FOr new car my budget is 11.50 max. The car i am considering should be fuel efficient because my daily travelling in 70 Km. I have visited many showroms in islamabad/rawalpindi for Corolla 06/07 but most of them are in very bad condition and good cars owners are asking more then 12 then for Japanese cars but most of them are accident and without any auction sheet.Unregistered vitz is out of my budget and used one i saw. many of them are not in good condition.So after broken heart from Japanese cars i visited Suzuki dealerships to purchase Cultus but they are giving delivery time of 45-60 days. I cant wait so much long time. I also saw Wagon R. I took test drive. Its shape is ugly but as a machine it is very nice.A/C is very good and feels like some big car.But applying brakes on 70 + km make feels that car will make long skid.Which can be dangerous on Islamabad highway specially during rush hours.I only need car for my office travelling and i am only driver and using car so no pessangers on rear seat. I am big worried when going to workshop due to office timing issues. So if i go for Wagon R then no workshop for minimum 2 years.
    Please help me in taking decision as i need car in 1-2 days.

    If you want new, go for cultus or vagon r and if old, then city and swift are the best options and hope you will find easily a good one in your budget.
    Take it easy driving...The life you save may be mine.

    I heard that Swift is gas guzzler. and it does not give more then 10-11.My daily driving is 70Km
    So it is difficult to waste so much money on fuel daily.

    Just checked Suzuki Swift base model it is 12,20,000, go for it or buy a 2009 Honda City, but id say go for a brand new car, go for Swift, stay away from Wagon R if u have a budget of 11 - 12 lac rupees.
    And about fuel economy, if you are burning 4 liters a day on a mehran, you ll be burning no more than 5 liters on a swift, so that is no big issue.

    You can find good conditioned city 08 in your range. A/c is great, comfort has no match with cultus and swift i'd say.

    ur drive is 70km hmm, why don't u go for a Mira E;S, it is a very good car and is capable of giving of giving 17-19 on long route, but only buy it if u have a smooth and less rushy route as it is gives good mileage only on long routes, for smaller i would recommend u a manual

    Wait time for Mehran is 60 days, for WagonR and cultus it is 40-45 days.....Even if you import a car from Japan it would take atleast 40-45 days...I would suggest to get a new WagonR...

    Car is always purchased considering its use. Since you travel 70KM/Day therefore you need a car which requires less maintenance and if it needs then it must not be costly because of your daily traveling distance. You have to frequently change oil/filter and its routine checkup. Honda city is very expensive to maintain. I owned it in the past, I have mehran as well and drivin cultus. The best car considering your options is Wagon R and you can easily maintain it. Since it will be used by you only therefore you can easily maintain it for a longer period of time without any trouble. Filling CNG is a huge task and PIA. So better to opt for car with very good fuel economy.
    If you still persists for sedan then go for City 06 Model and above without CNG and try to purchase it from first owner. Its fuel economy is good but its maintenance will be expensive.
