    Default Buying a civic from honda 3s

    Salam Brothers,

    I was thinking of buying the Civic from Honda 3S in Islamabad.
    I know that the vehicle should be inspected thoroughly before taking delivery (Paint, any dents, misaligned spaces between the body, mileage should be below 200km, etc). I have also applied for becoming a filer to save the income tax.

    Can anyone tell me what else should be looked at when buying a new car as this is my first experience of buying a new car and wanted some advice from the brothers who have bought new cars recently.

    Thanks and Salam.

    Check all electronics.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    Thoroughly check the exterior. The dungar drivers employed by 3s drive the vehicles like they stole it.

    Open bonnet. Is the engine compartment in perfect shape? Is every dipstick, plastic cover, and wire harness present and properly secured? Check all the fluids are at optimal levels level: transmission, Engine Oil, Coolant, Break oil, Power steering oil, windscreen water and battery water. not a single sign of fluid leakage of any kind. like one sparkplug wire that is a completely different shade of black.

    Check all fluid levels too. Once Indus gave me new Corolla with highly excess engine oil. I had to go to get it removed. Luckily engine was not damaged, so much excess was engine oil.

    Well lets see. Last time I said this to someone on Pakwheels who said they have a contract with Honda, he got offended and in the end the car came out 8 months late at minimum.
    Plus not sure why this time they would launch new mode before 5 years like they normally do.
