    Default Want to purchase a car under 7 lac

    Hello guys i am from Karachi and willing to purchase a car under 7 lac.
    -- It must have CNG --

    Options i am considering are:

    1. Honda City 2004/2005 - Manual - CNG + Petrol
    2. Toyota Vitz (earlier models before 2005) - Automatic - CNG + Petrol

    Need your expert comments on maintenance cost of these both cars (Spare parts, Tuning etc) as i will select the one
    * That do not give much problems and
    * Which will be cheaper and easy to maintain

    as i am a Student and do not have a lot of time and money to spend on maintenance.

    Kindly provide a rough rate list of parts and maintenance costs for both if possible that will be great

    Note: Suzuki Lovers stay away from this post please. Do not want to purchase a "Suzuki"

    Thank You

    CNG works perfect in manual city and auto vitz till 2004 old shape. i would suggest you to go for a clean vitz. city is a very good car but i guess it will be hard to maintain as it is a big car for a student.
    people need to grow up sometimes and act MATURE !

    but bro many people say that the parts of Vitz are very expensive as compare to Honda City such as the gear box.

    If someone can provide some rough idea about spare parts rates and maintenance cost of these both cars that will be great.

    And secondly do you think i can get these cars under my range in clean good condition?

    Before giving sweaping statement, one must take into account that no non sense should be uttered.

    City any model except vario and vitz upto 2004 model has no prob at all on CNG and it behaves excellent.
    However city is recomended as it has relatively cheaper and less maintenance...rest first preference should be better condition....in this price range in isb/pindi one cang even think to buy a reasonably fair condition city or vitz.

    I'd recommend Handa City iDSI (Manual). I am not sure about Karachi market but I hope you'd be able to find one (2003-05 model) in NORMAL condition within your budget. NORMAL means, having some sprayed body parts but not accidented, normal condition enterior with good mechanical and engine condition (might be with high milage).
    Regarding maintenance, I don't think there is a significant difference in routine maintenance (including parts and labor) of both of your mentioned cars but if you talk some special/extra-ordinary work (like engine overhaul, transmission work etc.) I believe City is more economical.

    Keep one thing in mind, having/using a 10 years old vehicle means very high probability of maintenance work requirement, which need time and money . You are a student and if you want to save time and money, try to get a model as latest as possible. Considering your budget, I'd humbly request not to ignore Mehran.

    With reference to CNG problem in Honda City, it is relevant to Vario (Auto/CVT version) only. It works perfectly fine in manual version.
