    Default Which car should I buy?

    Hello all,

    I am planning on buying a new car for a family of four, preferably a sedan, my budget is 750k, these are the cars that have caught my eye so far(Please give other options if you can):

    1: Honda Civic 2001 or Honda City 2004
    2: Mitsubishi Lancer 2005
    3: Toyota Platz
    4: Suzuki Liana 2005-6


    I have a few queries on these cars:

    Honda Civic 2001:
    I checked out a lot of Civics within my budget but unfortunately, none of them were good condition. I know this is probably the best choice but I don't think a Civic under 800k would be perfect, condition wise.

    Honda City 2004:
    I think this car falls within my budget very well but I have heard that it suffers from poor CNG performance and if that's the case, it's not feasible for me, please clarify.

    Mitsubishi Lancer 2005:
    What can I say, I love this car. If you guys can tell me how it's resale value is and whether it's easy to get it repaired(availability of parts, maintenance) and how it performs in general, if all that checks out, I am going to go with this.

    Toyota Platz:
    Can this car be maintained easily and how does it perform on CNG?

    Suzuki Liana 2005-6:
    I have heard nothing but bad things about this car. Everyone talks about it breaking up all the time, the only reason it's in my list is because it's very cheap. So is all the talk true, is this car that bad, can it be repaired and maintained easily, most of the mechanics don't understand how to repair it because of it's "electric" parts and also how does it perform on CNG? is it a reliable car?

    I own a 2005 lancer, bought new back then, and have maintained it well, and I have never once had an issue, just the regular fluid changes, brake pads and scheduled servicing. But, parts and service is expensive from dewan motors, korangi. I still think in the long-term, the peace of mind I have had with this car has been worth it. I don't drive it much and it's low mileage (50K km only), and would not ever sell it.

    The thing is, it won't be easy to find one in great condition. Zameen aasmaan ka difference hota hai in Japanese assembled vehicles and local. Good luck.

    Honda Civic is a great car but u won't find it in your budget. City 2004-5 comes in your budget and is a great car and can support CNG.

    2: Mitsubishi Lancer 2005
    Best Car ever, amazing machine, better than corolla and city, great build quality and fun to drive. Good resale.

    3: Toyota Platz
    Flop car, ugly shape, no resale

    4: Suzuki Liana 2005-6
    Liana i cant think of any good things about it, hmm the rims r good maybe , Bads, Looks,brake,engine,suspension,ac,quality, everything. The name itself says, "Lia Naaa"

    Would recommend u a Lancer or City.

    Where can the Lancer be serviced and repaired? Can any mechanic repair it? Kindly guide me in this matter. Also guide me a little more about its resale value.

    Service and repair, The Car is almost the same as the modern Efi cars like City, Civic Rolla so now most mechanics can understand it.
    Resale Value of the Car is good

    I am most probably going to pick up the manual, so I am assuming that manual and CNG work well together with the lancer?
