Pakistan is primarily a used car market due to local manufacturers not keeping up with the demand of consumers, and people are not left with any option but to buy a used car or to import a car from other countries.
Most of the vehicles coming to Pakistan are imported from Japan which is known as JDM cars. Along with JDM cars comes an auction sheet.
In Pakistan, some people make an alteration in the auction sheet to omit or change certain things in it to make it look ok or error-less. Many buyers don’t know how to decode the auction sheet or don’t know where to go to get the auction sheet checked and verified that is why they get defrauded.

What is an Auction Sheet?
When you import a car from Japan, there are different auction houses in Japan that issue the auction sheet for a car. This auction sheet, much like your medical documents, tells the condition of the car at a particular point in time. Take note here that the auction sheet is a snapshot of the condition of the car before it goes to the Japanese port, then comes to the Pakistani port and finally lands at a dealership in Pakistan. In this entire procedure, the health and condition of the car can change drastically.

Few Things to Remember While Decoding an Auction Sheet:
What are Auction Grades?
To understand the auction sheet, you need to know that there are two auction grades. These are the exterior grade and the interior grade. In the case of exterior grade, the highest is the “S” grade. It is reserved for new to relatively new cars (under 5,000 km). It then goes numerically from 5 to 1 and then the most inferior category for the exterior is R or A grade. In this grade, the car was in an accident, and parts were replaced or repaired.
In the case of interior grades, the highest one is “A” grade which is reserved for an immaculate interior with no faults. It goes all the way down to “D” grade where the car has a faulty, dirty, and stinky interior. There are different grading criteria for different auction houses. Some are very strict while others are relatively lenient in their grading of cars. However, the terminologies across the board are the same for all these auction houses. The following image shows a detailed exterior and interior grading scale:
At times, “R” grade imported cars come to Pakistan and get sold here. These cars were in an accident and you can know about the replaced parts from the auction sheet. Parts that are labeled with “XX” on the auction sheet are the ones that have been replaced. It is good to get such a car as long as the replaced part is not being problematic. A single “X” means that the part needs to be replaced.
