    Angry Really disappointed in Pakwheels used car market.

    Hello Fellow Pakwheelers,

    I have been looking for a decent Mehran for over 2 weeks now. At first I was just using Pakwheels for this purpose. I went and saw 5 cars , 3 at "home" and 2 at the dealers. Not a single car was as described. 2 cars supposedly home used only had smoking engines where as they were described as water throwing and perfect engine. These cars were parked out side showrooms but on call they said they were home seller. The cars at the dealers were no better. Major accidents , poor engines , false description of interiors etc. Now i will revert back to Jang Classified ads from this weekend and will hopefully find a decent car. This in no way is a problem with PakWheels but now there are more dealers than original sellers here on PakWheels, most of whom don't care about lying to just get there car sold. I have had to go on borrowed cars and in extreme temperatures to look at these cars and was always disappointed.

    I am not that active on Pakwheels but i do still open it daily just to check whats up on the forums. I will continue to do that but not going to buy a car from classifieds here.

    I would request Pakwheels to verify the dealers and maybe create a page for the users to review them once they have bought the car from a specific dealer. It would help the other user.

    Regards
    Wasil Rahim Khan

    Its not only on pakwheels, but everywhere. It is not necessary that jung adds are true or they might also be lying. The best thing you get on pakwheels, olx nd etc is that you get to see the picture and decide.
    Just love the smell of burning tyres..

    Sadly there's nothing that can be done as it's a public forum, People try to exploit everything to their own benefit when ever a possibility arises.
    When I looked up "Ninjas" in Thesaurus.com, it said "Ninja's can't be found" Well played Ninjas, well played.

    I know this happened on OLX but didn't expect this much on Pakwheels and Jang has limited ads but 90% are home based old school ones. The pictures are for sure a plus point but we all know they can be manipulated with low lighting etc. Anyways will surely update this page when i find a car with my overall experience.

    Yeh but maybe a proper page on dealers(showrooms) managed by pakwheels and having ratings given by users would be helpful for future buyers.

    I called one , i think it was a silver mehran with 90% rating 2005. The engine suspension had been rebuilt and was painted all around(report said 3 panels were painted). Couldn't see that n the carsure report. Maybe i mis read something but they might need to update that too , maybe give the car sure guys some comment section to provide a brief overall description of the car.

    Good valued feedback by the OP.
    We need a review based portal for car classifieds. And rigorous authorization process for the legit classifieds.

    Sir the Car Sure program is certainly a step forward in the right direction but my issue with this program is that the surveyors(mechanics) should be provided with a remark box for every section so we can have a more in depth knowledge of there survey of the car along with the point system. At the moment they are limited to yes and no and some fixed review points.

    I hope PW's will look at this as a positive thing as it will only help them help us.
