Theres no match between a JDM and PKDM. I mean besides the war, its funny to compare a historical worthless car being sold at a price in which one can get alot more rather than not even standard options. But for the sake of price the 2 vehicles say Mehran and a JDM Mira, Alto, Mitsubishi EK or Suzuki Kei can be compared.
But i tell u, all these cars by "FAR" exceed even our local Cultus by power,mileage,performance and the package has a HUGE difference. Infact the quality is a million times better than the best Pak Suzuki offers now (Liana) and can offer in next 50 years.
And abt reliability, a 100,000km driven JDM vehicle from Japan is still 100,000 times better than the vehicle u will get in Pakistan for that price. They r auctioned with true specs and they dont have any issue. And definitely any wise man would test drive and get a vehicle checked before buying. And yes parts of JDMs r easily available. And parts cost? When u get a really good quality car with really good quality parts, they dont come cheap. Still affordable and u wont need them tht often as the Mehran does.
Decision is urs. I would highly second aqibbasit. If someone gets offended, they may. Truth does not change and is sweet for some and bitter for others. Abt fuel, well u can waste ur investment on a CNG kit because these winters u will have CNG maybe 2-3 days a week and will have to wait in ques of 1 hour or more. The difference is 2-3Rs per km which is worth considering the comfort, power and the whole lot of package.
AC is good and trouble free while Mehran has heating issues no matter what.
Interior, seats and what not!
I would also discourage anyone from buying Mehran. Iv owned one too and now i own a Mira AVY. No match!
Pak Suzuki is selling u crap because u have not stopped buying it even now with these options available.
