    Default ~~ Why do we pay OWN??? ~~

    I visited a wedding party at Shehnai Lawn near Askari/ Dalmia. Shehnai lawn is located on a little cliff which is right behind Honda Drive-in. I was surprised to see from there that Honda Drive-in was packed with latest City & Civics, not only the showroom, but the workshop's entire ground floor, first floor and the roof was packed with hondas. one thing more surprising was that a big portion of Shehnai lawn's parking was also packed with city and civics. there were 2 guards to look after the unregistered vehicles. i dont understand why do they gave longer delivery times when they dont even have space to park the cars. production seems adequate enough.

    Then after few days i went to Awami Markaz which is right next to Toyota Central Motors. Same thing i saw there too, Corollas and cuores were packed not only inside but on the roof as well as the plot besides Toyota motors and you wont beleive there were cars parked all along the railway line that runs behind the showroom.

    If there is so much capacity to produce the cars why arent they delivered??? i dont see cars being delivered so frequently as their quantity appears in the showroom.. the question is "if its an artificial shortage, being created by the manufacturers, and that there are enough vehicles available, WHY DO WE PAY OWN????

    ----------------PLEASE STOP PAYING OWN---------------
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    There are many cars available without OWN why only a few crappy brands which people buy after paying OWN and then critizise its brakes, build quality and what not

    1. If i need a car i'd order one before i need it, and not at the last minute run around like a headless chicken looking for the lowest "own" (and possibly rent till it arrives).

    2. I wait for my mercs when i order them don't i? at least they are worth the wait.

    3. That's what rental companies are for. Also have you heard of places liek mitsubishi? who says you HAVE to buy a honda/toyota/suzuki etc..

    4. If i hire an emplyee and have so much nakra that he has to haev a car i woudl think it best to buy him a 2ndhand car till i feel he is worthy of a new car (like i do at the office) if not i give them motorbikes.

    Why must you people make it sound as if buying with "own" is a noble thing,.. all you are proving is how stupid you really are for paying it.

    I think I will pay own ... that is if I can afford it and its reasonable.... 15-25K is okay, over 100 K is ridiculous...

    @r1zwan

    jo galat hai wo thora bhi galat hai or zyadaa bhi.
    paying 1k own falls in same category where 250k own paid to get black 2.0D saloon.
    its not the point of affordability brother, the one who can afford a corolla can ofcourse afford the own for it. but point is that you are doing wrong with those who are promoting it. the one who booked the car waited for 6 months still faces problems coz the showroom people tell him we are not sure when ur car will come. i have heard many cases like these.

    ^ exactly my point....its not worth it...plus I would rather pay 15K more and enjoy my car for 6 months then to pay full price and wait for 6 months or more to get delivery... and honestly I dont think its wrong...just another way of making money, and you know everything is fair in business

    who said everything is fair in business

    anyways i would prefer to not stimulate a wrong thing happening in society. those who earn halaal can never be in favour of things like these.

    Atleast things are better now.
    Now most cars don't have "own" and the few tht do , its much less.
    The main culprits as far as i know are Xli , Mehran , Alto , Cultus , Cuore . And why would u want to buy these cars in the first place??? Theyr all rubbish.
    And now thers so much more choice.
    w0i dO p3oPL3 TyP3 L1K3 tH15 , or should i say , Di5?

    Dear brothers

    Own/Black Marketing is Haram in Islam; we should do our level best to eradicate this menace from our society.


    If some dealer does some kind of mischief in the delivery of the car, then the door to the High Court is always open. Let me tell you guys that if we start sueing these ******** then the days are not far away when they will become humble and cooperative once again.

    where else in the world you pay OWN??? can anyone tell me??? sorry to say many people around as (even few in the current discussion) are responsible for this market situation..

    if, say everything is fair... then i think the time isnt far away when people will be stoling the cars from the showrooms, and selling them in higher prices.... saying everything is right in business

    "own" as it is known here, is called "premium" in other countries and it is only paid on high end cars.

    In pakistan the premium is on the lowest grades of cars.

    My dear brother Nabs

    Bhai please don't repeat this again in future [@enigma,,, "Doors of High Court". Did you mean "Doors of High Corruption" ? ]

    As a brother I must tell you that this kind of statement comes under contempt of Court, and a person found guilty of such an offence is sent to prison for 6 months.

    High Courts in our country are the justice givers and I have many personal experiences to this.

    i've only had to go to court once due to a false arrest & wild charges (279 in a car which was standing 50 meters away from me) and i was aquitted,... sadly it took 2 months of my time and no damages were awarded even though it spent 11 hours in police custody and was trated like a f*cking dog in a cage!

    @PuNk
    you cannot justify "own" no matter what you write. bottom line is these are cr@ppy econohatches and they are not worth their total metal scrap value even if they were made of solid gold.

    Anyone guilty of paying "own" is proving how little he knows about economics, how little he cares about the economy of the country, and how little his brain is.
