I just want to share my experience.
I am using a LIANA RXI since Jan 2007, and during this 44 months I have done 16 up-downs of Karachi to Islamabad and Murree on this car - it has completed 110k Kilometers, and still its condition is very good, especially its engine and suspension.
Yes, after 110K there are few replacements needed like front axles.
I've driven the City and Corolla many times for the same long run, and honestly speaking, the Liana is far better than the City, but definitely the Corolla is one step ahead of the Liana.
I am not satisfied with the spare parts prices of the Suzuki Liana. Recently the fan belt and A/C belt of my Liana were changed. The total cost of belts was rs.6000. In my opinion the cost of spare parts should be less.
I m looking for a Liana 2006 or 2007 model. Can anyone guide me which is better one... RXi or LXi? And why cars at Karachi are sold at a low price in comparison to Punjab? Please guide me with good buying tips. Thanx.
I have heard that when driving on motorway, the sensors get heated with CNG, and car stops immediately. You will agree or not, but the problem exist with this. What do you have to share about that?
I have a Liana RXI. I changed the throttle body, fuel injectors and all sensors, but the fuel average is still 6 in the city and 8 on long drives. It's a good car on CNG only. So before buying this, keep fuel consumption in mind.
I have a Liana 2006 model, and since day one I have been facing the same problems. On CNG the engine starts missing, fuel consumption is 8 km per liter, and in summer the water in the radiator disappears and needs to be filled. No resale value.
I did everything I could to get this car fixed. The fuel consumption is not improving after tuning, tappet and scanner. Most of the workshops refuse to accept the car for repair work. I changed the coil wires and it started missing on CNG again. The parts are expensive too. It's only a losing/losing situation with this car. I have spent so much money and now it's not selling at a good price. I thought of changing the engine with an XLI, but it will cost me a lot of money. But I must admit that this car has a beautiful interior, a big trunk and good road grip.
