AOA. I intend to buy a Suzuki Liana. Please give suggestions whether it's the right decision, as I am short in cash and have to buy a bigger sedan type car for my family. Alternate suggestions are also welcome. Thanks
Plz tell ur range than we can suggest u car.

Don't go for Liana; there's a reason its second hand is so cheap compared to other cars; you can get a 2007 Liana cheaper than a 2005 Baleno... Always remember; if its too good to be true then it is... Liana's engine has major fault so if it starts giving issues then you're in for hell; brotherly advise would be to consider something else. State your budget so others will be able to give you options.
Budget is around 6-6.15k
You'd be better off with a 2003-2005 City Manual If you are looking at automatic then try looking for a 1996-2000 CivicCorolla you'll only get Indus which is very old in my opinion.
Another good Option is Toyota Platz 1999-2001 which is 1000cc and packed with goodies
Is toyata plat available in my range? What about spare parts cost and availability?
In this range if u are living in karachi or multan, u can get liana.
But i dont recommend you to go for it in this range.
I saw this program top gear back in 2006~2007, liana was declared worst car of the year.
I am in Rawalpindi
If u left with no choice then u can try. But in this range u cannot get well maintained liana from rwp isb.May be karachi registered... Or mitsubishi lancer u can also try....
Thanks Umair and Omer
Platz shares same engine & suspension as Vitz 1999-2004. Body parts are available but a little expensive
go for liana best value for money
platz 1.0l is gas guzzle and 1.3l is rare
In pindi, dnt go for a liana u will only find abused ones. Liana is cheap only when it has issues n one wants to get rid of it. In pindi try finding a clean baleno 2003-2004 or city 2000-2001 u might find a clean car
so your are saying m13a is a flop engine right so swift/jimny are also bad car right????
Swift has same engine as Liana?
yes and jinmy also share the same engine
Engine is same but swift has a different transmission and has a short shift which works pretty well for swift
