    Default Sunny 98cng-incomplete deal

    AOA guys.
    Yesterday, I visited a showroom in Faisaltown-Lhr and managed to see a Nissan Sunny 98 with cng.The car was in light golden colour with power windows, power steering. Interior and exterior condition was Okey. But when I checked the Engine oil dip rod, I found water mixed in the oil. I doubed about the gasket or head crack. Any way, the asking price was 450k and and bearing in mind that the engine work may take 5k max., I showed my interest in car.
    The owner came down to 420k but I wanted it below 400k.
    Meanwhile, I called my mechanic back home in Gujranwala and asked his opinion. He said the engine parts of Sunny98 petrol is a hard find and in 450k, I can get u a Baleno
    2000-2001 which has resale and same comfort.I need ur advice guys. And a Baleno is a successful car or not.

    Not a good option, its bad even for 4 Lacs, Baleno 99 is a good option and the Spectra 2002 is the best of them All, when we are talking of a car for 4 Lacs.

    Thank u guys for your comments and advice.I personally like the comfort and safety given by spectra car but again availability of spares and resale matters a lot. Therefore, better if I go for a Baleno as its parts are cheap and easily available. Resale is good. Baleno Owners and others having information are requested to let me know the fuel economy of Baleno in cng and a model of 2001 with cng how much should it cost in Punjab market.
    Thanks in advance.

    Used car market has fallen alot, you got to find out a good deal for yourself, Newspaper Classifieds of Dawn and Jang are big help here in Karachi and I see alot of ads for Lahore and Islamabad too, Never buy in hurry, if it takes a week or 2 or more, its fine, cause you ll keep that car for years not days

    hey bro.. do u really need a bigger car? if not thn i`d suggest u to get a brand new cuore or either vitz 99.

    and if u really want one with trunk thn nissan sunny 98 is a gud option. as in its kinda expensive in 450k. search for more cars, average condition shud be of 350k but its better to get one in immaculate condition in 400k.

    If u cant find one, thn its better to get 98-99 city thn baleno. better comfort n resale as well.

    best of luck

    and water mixed oillll.....gasket is blown or head cracked....Nissan Sunny 98 GA14DE engine come with same problem..........if one get a car in less with that kinda engine....throw that GA14 and put GA15DS one.....and enjoy what Sunny is all about..........
    b/w...Baleno 98-01 models are far better than new ones...TRy getting Gli or Glip ones.........they are good....!
    also consider Indus Corolla as prices are just decreased to 525.....some more investment and a good deal...........!
