    Question Need assistance: Buying a used car in 3.5lac

    Dear all Pak Wheelers's Assalam Alaikum
    I'm Usman from KARACHI. I am planning to buy a used car, my budget is maximum 3.5 lacs. If any expert could assist me by informing me about reliable cars for sale I'd be thankful to him. I've made my mind for suzuki Margalla 1995-6, Toyota corolla 1985-6 and Chevrolet joy 2005-7.
    My concerns are
    • easy maintenance/parts availability
    • good resale in case of any emergency
    • ideal for domestic use with trunk.

      agar aap mein se koi achi gaari sale kr rha hai tou mujhay zaroor btaiye ga.




    • All of the experts better suggestions/opinions are welcome

    If anyone selling his car that is genuine and within my needs and budget please feel free to contact me on my cell: 0345 3031729
    Thankyou

    Maintenance is not cheap

    parts aren't too

    Resale not effective

    Affordability on petrol / diesel is a question mark

    Hmm, if you find a good car then it is cheap, else a pain.

    You need a good mechanic for the carburetor and engine tuning.

    All parts are available kabli.

    But if you want to enjoy a margalla, buy one with a good and healthy engine and rust free body.

    Even then, expect to spend atleast 50k to make it something good.

    Imo a margalla in 350k will be a money pit
    haters gonna hate, potatoes gonna potate

    In this budget the best car is Suzuki Margalla. Cheap parts and if the parts are not found then cultus parts can be adjusted.

    Everyone here suggesting you to buy very old cars but listen at the end of month if you will sum the Time waste on workshops + maintenance expense + fuel of very old cars then you will realize that leasing a new small car was good deal. Think about it .
