    Lightbulb NBA: Which car to buy in range 550k-650k!

    AOA Users,

    I was initially planning to get 2005 I-DSl City in this range, but from most of the reviews, I came to know that Honda is expensive to maintain, and City has bad reputation in CNG scenario. Some even asked me to go for Suzuki Cultus/Alto instead but I hate Suzuki's (just a personal preference).

    My average running daily is 40km daily, preference would be use CNG over petrol.

    Which car would be best for family in the given scenario?

    JazakAllah

    AUTO Tranny City isnt recommended for cng users. Manual tranny cng works great without any issues. Buy it if you want sedan and if you need a hatchback and a newer model then cultus would be newer in this range.

    i don't think so city idsi falls in that budget till it is a badly messed up car! raise your budget to around 800k and you might find an average condition idsi manual, it runs great on cng but it is very fuel efficient and i don;t think so you will even need cng

    What if I add CITY EXIS 2000-03 in my options. Is it a feasible option ?
    I see it ranges between 5-650k category.

    Any pros/cons for this model is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    a good condition 2008 model santro is in your range and it is very easy on pocket too .. plus cultus efi 2007/08 can fall in ur range too if u have good bargaining skills .... both of them are not heavy on pocket and you will get a new model too ..

    Bro if CNG is easy available then you may opt for CNG . else you should buy a car with EFI and good average of petrol , you may easily get a 7 or 8 cultus in this price range( talking about lahore) ...

    city is also a good option
