Dear Seniors & Guruz, I am planning to buy a vehicle when I return (In Sha Allah) to Pakistan next year, that will be used as primary vehicle in Islamabad/Lahore/Chakwal and on M2. Previously I kept 93 Pajero Automatic and I prefer jeeps to cars. Please guide me to select a balance between Reliability, Power, Economy, Comfort, Speed, Parts and Price and recommend a vehicle in budget between 15-25L.
I like Pajero, LC and Surf. I am told that Land cruiser is heavy on fuel and surf is not comfortable for everyday family use and their top speed (although I am never intended to go beyond 135 but 140+? is it practical/possible in case of need/emergency on highways for 4x4s there?).
I thank you guys for valuable feedback in anticipation.
These days buying any good suv is pretty hard in 15 so i will leave that as assume the max budget which is 25. In 25 you can get 2006-8 Vigo, 96-2000 Prado and 96-2003 Surf, the 2000+ models are good for motorway due to their less cabin noise. you can find a 2.7 litre 2003 surf or go with 1kz prado vigo is good as well be it being a dalla is bit bumpy..
Dear qwertypoiu, Thanks for your advice but what about comfort, milage/economy, speed etc??? Vigo is not for family/rough ride, prado would be very heavy on fuel and surf again is I think not very comfortable as compared to LC/Pajero?
