Perhaps an outdated design in 21st century, coupled with serious quality issues from PakSuzuki these days i know it would not seem good to open a thread in favor of Suzuki Cultus but things almost 8 years back were very different from that of today.. comparing the first gen cultus (2000-02) with that of today, i would rate the early cultus anyday over the new one... why??... this is the example! please say Masha'Allah
older members at Pakwheels know my car, its been with me for almost 3 years now and has clocked more than 1 lac 65 thousand kilometers and i have tried my best to retain it in its showroom condition... the pictures might speak for themselves.. Alhamdulillah its doing perfectly fine and i havent found a single trouble or quality issue in it so far... it has proven to be a very dependable car for me as its the only vehicle i have, so the daily running is more than 80kms in karachi, sometimes even going beyond 100kms in the worst of driving conditions.. its a real workhorse!
i dont think the price of 8.33lacs these days is justified for cultus, 3 years back it used to be 5.90 (even then it was overpriced) so i always recommend everyone (who wana buy cultus) to go for a well-kept used one (like i did) rather than paying for a zero meter overpriced car with quality issues... early cultus were better built without any doubt & the interior was of superior quality too!
i got this car for 4 lac 10 thousand (without CNG) and costed me around 4.48 lac after installing CNG.. i was lucky to find a well maintained car as the car was almost 6 years old the time when i purchased it, and still had plastic covers on!! those people who are not car enthusiasts even asked me how much own did i paid for this car (however its clearly evident from the number plate that the car belongs to year 2000)..
anyway, the reason to post this thread is to share my in depth experience maintaining this ride.. in these 3 years i have been able to understand the cultus very well and hence will be happy to share my experience with other fellow members... i will periodically post info about the various maintenance stages here & also would like other members to shar their experiences with me..
lastly! it has been a great decision to go for 2000 Cultus!
The 2010 upgrade!
