    Default Beware of this Toyota Corolla

    AOA. I was searching for a 2014 Toyota Corolla car a few weeks ago. Came across an advertisement on OLX for a Red Wine colored 1.3L Manual GLi. I went to inspect the car. The car had repainted bumpers (forgivable considering the traffic in Lahore), and a few minor, but painful looking dents on the sides (forgivable to some extent). The major drawback was that the hood, the trunk and the roof was covered with many small dents (unforgivable). Upon asking the owner, I was informed the car had been parked outside when the last episode of hailstorm. I left the car without any second thoughts.

    Anyway, i was going through Pakwheels Classifieds just now and i spotted the same car for sale again. This time, it was parked in a Dealership. "Data Ali Hajvery Motors, Samanabad." The car has been described as 'Excellent, almost brand new condition" which is FAAAR from truth, as the car i inspected one month ago was not in that condition. Maybe the dealership did some kind of magic, and made the dents and scratches disappear.

    Also, the ODO reading is shown as 28000. When i had inspected it a few weeks ago, the car was showing 33000+ on the ODO. Meter has been reversed. This is extremely sad what people do to make a few rupees.

    I called this dealership to get some insight. I was fed wrong info about the car. The person claimed the car had been used in Islamabad all its life, when in fact it was driven by a bank employee in Lahore.

    My point is, i would like any potential buyers to be vary of this car. Special care and extra vigilance should be shown by potential buyers.

    God bless you all.
