Summary:

A good, but overpriced car

Faults:

A loose nut on the radiator fan caused the car to overheat and I had to return to the dealer within an hour of the purchase to get it fixed.

The rear shocks squeak a lot, especially after rain.

The horn stopped working because of a broken connection.

Water from the A/C dripped inside the car because of wrongly installed rubber vent pipe.

The tappet cover gasket started leaking after the first month and had to be replaced.

General Comments:

Road handling is excellent specially on crowded roads.

Lack of servo brakes demands a lot of leg power to stop the car.

Very uncomfortable seats.

Cramped interior.

Dim warning/control lights. It is hard to identify whether or not AC switch is pressed or depressed, especially in daylight.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

In the year 1997 I came from Yemen and planned to buy a car, relatives told me to buy a mehran, and the day I bought a Mehran hell got loose, everything in the car looked like a toy car. After a year everything in the car started to make noise I had to fix the things again and again, especially the tuning of the car engine, you can never tune this car's engine. And the body of this car is like a sheet of paper, once my friend sat on the bonnet of the car, I couldn't believe the bonnet had the butt print on it. I have a lot to say about Mehran cars, but the most plesent thing is that I just sold the car and bought a Japanese made car. Love and Peace to all.bye from Raza.
