    Fun doesn't mean driving the car above limits, fun means driving the car on rough terrains and the acceleration response than you get from a 1.5 or 1.6 version.

    You talking about half? I can get you a bumper for 2000-2500 rs, and a pair of side mirrors for 500-600. that car is a gem, our market is flooded with its parts. there isn't a single part in that car which is not available hand to hand even in the smaller cities.

    that model of City had a soft suspension and the seats were okay
    the reason of feeling uncomfortable is because of the driving position , the front seats are on top of the fuel tank

    I totally agree with you brother, but I just wanted to tell you that the parts are actually cheaper than half the price of honda spares. It just depends upon your negotiation power as most of the parts are not available at the official dealers.

    JDM liana is 1.5l (m15a) not 1.6l (m16a)

    If i'm not mistaken, JDM liana comes with a M16A engine. I've seen it under liana hood myself. the displacement is just a bit lesser that 1600cc but its called M16A

    what's your problem?? I'm suggesting AE101 because its easy to maintain and the parts are easily available, where would he find the body parts of 260c?? And stronger doesn't mean a stronger built, if that was the thing than why should he waste his money on such cars, why not buy an old Land rover? But that isn't the only thing, the main thing is the driving pleasure, road grip and cheap maintenance, and none of 'em implies on this Datsun. And the image you've posted above looks more like a 70s nissan cedric.

    Maybe that's the case but I've seen the 1.6 eminent running better on our roads than the JDM version. can you state a reason for that?

    my basic point was to find the height of madness you have about AE101 I am not recommending 260c to OP and I have found that your really love ae101 the pleasure of driving of 260c is way a head of ae101

    Above the limits means above the permitted speed limits, I don't recall a road in Pakistan that allows such speed. I'm astonished to see that you consider it fun to risk the life of your loved ones and the people on road. What were you thinking when you touched that speed on a Liana? I've owned it and I know there is no way to control it in any mishap if the speed is above 120km/h and at least a single death is certain.

    I'm glad to hear that you tried to test your car on a highway, anything could've been ahead of you, You don't know what's going to come out of the blue, Please avoid such irresponsible behaviour on public roads. they're built for people to travel safely, not for testing your car limits. Even a Buggatti veyron that has an astonishing 100 to 0 timing of 2.3 secs is not allowed to try such things on public road, I'm sure your car's ABS isn't better than Veyron's braking system if not worse.

    Yeah right! A car from the era when limits above 100kmph were restricted is better than an AE101. That might be the case, but thats just because it doesn't go ahead of 130km/h and if you compare the comfort and driving position of AE101 with datsun 260c you'll get to know the difference. The newer models are always better, same is the case in corolla but 7th gen is just affordable for daily running and newer generations are not that cheap to maintain, like the JDM corolla axio, one of it's kind in its class but hell expensive to maintain.

    1) 2006 Chevrolet Optra LS: Rides beautifully soaking up bumps like most high end cars do, stable at high speeds and drives like a tank but fuel thirsty.
    2) 2008 Nissan Sunny EX: Soft suspension, brilliant ride quality, excellent all-round visibility, low cabin noise at high speeds and economical but with a manual. Autos just dont have the top end performance.
    3) 2006 Toyota XLI: Medium-Hard suspension but durable, fuel economical, pathetic brakes, poor visibility and unstable at high speeds but worse is the cabin noise. Has 7 less horsepower compared to the sunny 1.3 so sluggish high end performance.
    4) 2006 Honda City I-DSI: Medium-Soft suspension, economical and good engine response. However, not stable at high speeds and a little cramped interior compared to the mentioned cars.
    5) 2006 Suzuki Liana Lxi: Medium suspension, some what economical, has the notorious coil problem if your engine gets wet, gets to a 100 quickest in this lot of 1.3's, excellent brakes, poor all round visibility, like the city and corolla, not stable at high speeds. Poor rear seat design.

    I woudnt go for a car more than 10 years old. God knows what kind of problems it may have in store for you. Newer cars tend to have lesser problems unless they have been used by some1 who dsnt give s rat's a** about his car.
    Thanks Man for a wonderful insight and a comparative analysis based on first hand experience> Just wondering if fuel economy was my top priority (with a compromise on suspension/ visibility etc) which one of these rides would you recommend in my budget, keeping in mind you said that the ride shouldn't be more than ten years old (and I totally agree with it)
