So finally writing this Hand on review of FAW- V2. Its been 4 months now ive been using this car and trust me i think it was a very good decision to buy this car. Apart from couple of small issues this car is a must purchase.
One cannot buy a 1300 cc applied for car from market at such a low budget. Price is the foremost thing that comes in our mind while purchasing a car and trust me as per my R&D there is big gap between all automobile companies when it comes to people who only have One million in their pocket and they want to buy a good car. These companies normally have cars either less than 1 Million or more than 1.5 Million. I am not taking account the japenese imported cars in this because they do not have a legal entity operating here and any day the government can ban these cars, secondly they are already touching there ceiling price of 1 million to 1.3 Million which is wayyyy tooooo much for a 660cc car.
Coming back to the point where i started of my discussion which is why i like FAW V2. i bought a white V2 at the end of the December and the exterior is beautiful. From the inside it is spacious and when i say it is spacious it really is because i am a 6.2 feet tall and heavy.
When it comes to its interior its made of good plastic, not the one we see in Mehran and Cultus but the one we see in Japense cars. Its a good hard plastic. Driving is good. Soo far i took this car to Sadiqabad and Bhawalpur and lately to Islamabad as well. Its top speed was 165 km, although meter is 180 km but i couldnt manage to give it enough throttle. On 165km/hr the car was normal like any other Sedan City or Toyota. There were alot of bumps on Multan Rd but i must say the suspension is very well managed by FAW.
AC is good infact very good because they have installed these big AC ventilation pipes but the issue is that there is some noise when the fan speed is on 3 and 4. The sound of air flowing in the car which actually disturbs alot. As far as cooling is concerned it is perfect.
One thing which i liked in it is although this car is a low budget car but still FAW has manged to put Alloy Rims, expensive Hankook tyres and a dry battery which really tells that they are investing good in this car. cherry on top is that i didnt pay for the Withholding tax as it was paid by the company at the time of import. So you will have to pay less registration for this car.
Drive is smooth within the city as well. It is giving me a 14km/Litre within the city and around 15-16 km/litre on highway.
Over all i am really satisfied with this car soo far. Spare parts are available at motgommery rd and FAW dealers. You can have any part replaced or you can buy a new one from the dealers. Oil change is also done by the dealers.
People now and then tell me that this car has re sale issues and they are not buying because of this, Cmon guys if you like it you should buy it because the more this car will be bought the more its re sale value will increase. Re sale value will not increase unless people will will be afraid of buying it.
Over all a good family car with all the basic and international features!!
