    you can check the compression of the engine with a compression gauge and then compare the values with those of a healty engine, but people rarely take good car of their cars so there is a high chance that the engine will not be healthy with this mileage, 2 saal mai itni chali howi,

    can't say anything. some rent-a-car used cars are in great condition because they know how to take care of cars and are professionals. anyhow 200K is a very high mileage. often rent-a-car people sell a car when they think problems are starting and it will need lot of maintenance soon so better leave it if it is rent-a-car.

    Buddy rent a car guys may be very caring for their cars but what about the users ?

    200 k is not an alarming mileage if it has been driven with care . Toyota engine last for thousands of kilometres troublefree .

    That is like approximately 220km's every single day over a period of 2.5 years. That is certainly a lot. I think it would definitely have other issues too.

    200k is high but the engine is capable of lasting alot more. Just do another 80 on this car and it will be ready for another 80k km

    Radio cabs are driven by authorised drivers and rent a car can be driven by anybody even if he is not a driver, provided he can pay the rent . This difference between radio cab and rent a car has to be understood .

    if the oil was changed on time and good oil was used and if the driving style wasn't harsh , then the engine might have life, you can check if just the rings are bad or also the seals by doing wet and dry compression tests

    We travelled to Multan in Dec 2012 and we hired a taxi to go to DG khan it was 2012 XLi and on the way back a 2009 Gli it had 260k kms on it and still the engine was pretty strong it was fully loaded with 6 people and a trunk full of luggage and performed pretty good
    It depends upon how the car is driven and maintained but i'd say check the car throughly like suspension and engine compression test is a must when buying a used car

    200,000 kms is peanuts for any modern engine if it were tended to properly meaning not run cold, good engine oil and change interval and proper upkeep.

    There are corolla taxis in Canada that have crazy mileage, the corolla digital odo stops at 399,999 - those cars are running with no problems with their odos stuck for years now.
