    as long as you don't have a very flashy one you'll be fine. i'm surprised at the amount of highend SUV's there are in PK now.

    i'd suggest you focus on safety, comfort etc and not bother worrying about car jacking anymore. there are alot of nice 4x4's in PK now.

    Good luck on whatever you decide

    Wasim bhai a shogun sport warrior (called the montero sport here) isnt that high-end when you consider the amount of cayennes, X-5's Amazons, range rovers etc on the roads nowdays. and in the price you are mentioning it falls into the same catagory as a slightly used surf/4runner so you shouldn't wory too much about carjacking as it's not a high demand car amongst theives. if anything it'll be a deterent to carjackers.

    Storm: if anything it'll be a deterent to carjackers.
    LOL. You'd have to be a total idiot to car jack anything more than an Accord.

    Having a decent luxury saloon or suv might be a deterrent itself. I have heard family members losing a Cutlus, but not a single problem from the families who own a 7 Series or Grand Cherokee. Seems like amateur crooks stick to cellphones or domestics. Wouldn't want to steal the wrong persons car.

    agree with storm on that!
    Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.

    yeah it's out of market car so the demand is low amongst theives, PLUS it is expensive so yeah, nobody will try to steal it.

    4x4s are safer then the local corolla and civic. Instead of sending a montero to Pakistan its better to buy one from the local market as ther will not be any kind of support avilable for such vehicle. It would be a safer bet go for something with a toyota emblem.

    if he wants a mitsubishi he could even by a slightly used pajero (full options) for around that kind of money here (and it would be fully supported by the local manufacturers)
