    My elder brother sold his civic 2005 vti in 2010 and car was driven around 294000kms when it was sold, but body wise car was 10/10 not even bumpers painted this much high mileage because car used to travel Isb-Lhr around every week, and i saw the same car in 2014 at a car show room in G-8 islamabad and i asked the dealer about the car he said demand is 11 lakhs and when he started the car odometer was showing 88000kms. I was shocked.

    I once went to a showroom in G-8, a dealer there was gonna show me a few cars which he claimed as "genuine". He showed me a 2005 Mark X 250G in silver. Car was in good nick, just some swirl marks here and there. When I asked about the mileage he said, "Sir jo app kehen gae, ho jai gi". Later it was revealed that the car had clocked more than 200,000KMs and he probably would've sold it to me with only 70k on the clock lol I didn't buy the car considering his "honesty" but it got sold just a few days after that for around 26 lacs.

    Lesson: Don't ever trust any car dealer until he lets you see the car without his presence and always try to have an expert at hand.

    Just 2 months ago, I went to a shopkeeper in Saddar, Rwp with a friend of mine to get a price quote on spark plugs for his 2013 Corolla, he's a car noob and can't even properly drive a manual. A mechanic there inspected his car's plugs and said that they're good and don't need changing till another 10,000 KMs but still we insisted to get new ones to be on the safe side. A few moments later, he asked the odometer reading of the car. He told him its almost 90,000KMs (88,000KMs to be exact). The mechanic "offered" him that he'll reverse the odometer for free with a special scanner while the owner has a cup of tea in his shop This shop happens to be just next to Automart there, a very reputed shop in Rawalpindi here. The mechanic was trying to be "kind" in his perspective

    That Mark X incident also took place in 2014.

    Honesty has no value in this country. People disconnect odometer cable usually in new cars after driving them 7-8k, same with my neighbour he has corolla altis 2013 and was selling it when i came back to Pakistan two months ago and upon asking him he said Ahmed bhai aisi gari kidher milti hai yeh to sirf 8000 chali hui hai even i knew that this guy has village in sialkot and once a month he goes there. Actual mileage would have been 80000km.

    At least we should play our part by being honest and trustworthy. In this way some day this beautiful country (which I consider as gift of الله ) will become a heaven for everyone no matter poor or rich.

    thats is why we are in current turmoil and commotion. Its all due to our bad deeds and God has to do justice come what may . And i think this country wont progress atleast in our current generation . It might become better after us (the next generation) but AGAIN not sure about that too because we are Decades behind from the rest of the progressive nations from every aspect ! SIGH !

    collective conscience, established norms to cheat, lack of initiative to work hard, absolutely no regards for quality,

    most importantly, no suing culture here, no courts of law to check such matters, no authorities to inspect vehicles .

    we are basically a collective cesspit of liars,cheaters and crooks .

    when I was going to buy a vehicle, one person inform us that is fellow have a mehran, only 13500 driven. model was I think 2003 or 2002. he was asking a good money according to mileage, we agreed and tell him to check vehicle. first he start to delay, maybe he want to increase money, when we went to check vehicle, we found that vehicle in very rough condition. when we drive that vehicle, felt that it is 13500km but dont know how much lakh (hundred thousand). I tell him that he just tell us thousands mileage which is showing but not tell us how much lakhs it is driven. so we came back.
