    The term “jeep” is synonymous with SUV in Pakistan. It could be seen whether people were looking for SUV section or specifically for the brand name “Jeep”.

    Pakwheels Forum search function is different from Used Cars section search function. As far back as I remember (more than 10 years), Pakwheels Forum search function had pathetic performance, the results were few and poor quality. In fact even if we write the exact heading or an exact sentence from a thread, that thread would never show up in the search results, whereas writing the same thing in google search would give the required thread as first result.

    Because of useless nature of Forums search function (and the compulsory several seconds gap between searches), I have used it only 15 or 20 times in more than 10 years. Maybe 3 years ago I used it last.

    Good luck to the 4003 poor souls who searched for Civic, and the 5968 poor souls who searched for City – and the rest, too. I doubt they ever found what they wanted.

    In Pakistan, ‘Jeep’ is synonymous with SUV…
    Even in official documents like the vehicle registration book we see vehicle type as ‘Jeep’ instead of SUV.
    It’s pathetic and laughable.
