so far, we've done around 10,000 kms. the car's going good. alot of people ask me whether they should buy this or an equally priced second hand c class. I advise them that the honda civic, although more expensive is more suited to our driving conditions and has relatively cheap parts, etc. some listen, some don't. those who don't, buy a c class and show it off - until shahnawaz hands them the bill of a routine tuning and checkup
after which they try to sell their beloved cars for a civic
fellow pakwheelers, i know that the c class is better in all aspects than the honda. however you should also consider maintenance costs. as repeatedly mentioned in other threads, owning a merc is pretty heavy on the pocket. no doubt your c class has more bhp and torque, better suspension, better everything than the PKDM civic, but you should also consider the costs of maintaining your "better" car as well. however, if you're not poor like me, then go ahead. buy a c class, 3 series, audi. their drive is definitely better than the poor mans "PKDM CIVIC"
