    Default Why people lie about their cars ?

    i had the worst nightmare of an ordeal searching for a relatively cheap family car for my wife , my two options were Cultus and Liana. Although i had few friends who are car dealers (CAR MATE) & (WESTERN CARS) to be prrecise , i wanted to go direct and hunt for the car myself so as to save the dealers commision or being ripped off .
    i got hold of many people selling the cars i wanted on PAKWHEELS.COM , everyone claimed their cars to be 100% original and in immaculate condition , i travelled to all corners of khi looking for a Liana 2007 or clutus 2007 but just could find one car in original condition , ALL were touch ups
    Why do people lie , i live in defence , sea view and i travelled to places like Gulshan Iqbal and Nazimabad and Malir to check out the cars while their owners claimed it to be in factory condition!!!
    I hate to say it but people can say or write anything on pakwheels not realising that others can be hurt and loose their time and energy .
    In the end i contacted my dealer friend and i got a good deal , I got a zero meter 2008 model Cultus VXL auctioned by UBL , yes when i say zero meter i mean zero meter for Rs 810,000/- but now i am sure thats atleast its 100% original

    inpakistan people have a warped sense of humanity & humour. their busted cars are perfect and everyone elses cars are garbage,.. simple.

    i've seen people asking 2 lacks for beetles which are worth less than 20000 and they claim they are in showroom condition,.. COME ON!!

    @ smasif

    I'm sorry that you had to go through such an ordeal, dont know what has happened to people's morality these days..any ways while most are crooked, there is still some hope left...I'm sure there are many people here on PW who have sold/purchased cars and have had a terrific experience, me being one of them.

    thats the general character of pakistanis.. people here lie about anything they are selling, few days back i was searching a city for my friend and even the dealers were lying about their cars that they are 100% original. A car with both bumpers and fenders repainted was claimed as 100% genuine by the dealer and i was like....:s

    @smasif

    Nothing to do with Pakwheels. 90% Pakistani men do that selling their cars which is extremely sad.cheat and lie just to make couple of thousand rupees

    my uncle was selling his 2.0D saloon and a car dealer came to him.he almost started check the car the "dealers way" when my uncle stopped him and said
    "full boot repainted. rear bumber painted twice. front right door half painted. besides that car has no sctratch or a penny worth of work."
    and the dealer looked at my uncle like he is from mars
    he didnt check the car further and bought it......

    in short honest people are rare in Pakistan
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Our public is an idiotic, dumb and even retarded. They just want to get hold of a bakra. Sorry for your ordeal.

    I wonder why no one has started a service like Carfax in Pakistan yet. Insurance companies collect a lot of crash data; it should be easy to mine it and sell it to both buyers and sellers.
    My opinions, suggestions and thoughts are strictly my own. I reserve the right to be human and make mistakes.

    Every one above me criticizing people & Dealers, but according to me criticism is not the solution, guys come up with solution not with problems

    Why don’t we start with the cleaning of our own community “Pakwheels” what you say
    suggestion from my side,

    Name the culprits in open community and Mods should ban them and also inform them why we are banning you,

    Come up with your suggestion and might be we can find a better solution

    i never wanted to mention this but once this week i actually made a payorder of the full amount , as the guy who advertised his Liana (japanese) on Pakwheels claimed it to me 100% original and he had placed his car for sale on a showroom at khalid Bin Waleed Road, the dealer said it was 100% original, when i went to take the delivery my friend (the dealer from clifton )- so he could check for any final issues if any , he said why not take delievery after showing it to Wahid & Ishtiaq dentor , near Kahlid Bin Walid Road , i personally dont know them and they have lots of nakras, these dentors are into Mark x and Landcruisers etc , mujhe to lift hi nahi kerwatay ,since my friend knew them so we went to have a final checkup
    Lo and Behold 3 piece touchup including Bonnet ! can u beleive it , i had the full amount as payorder in my hand .

    Well some times its not always sellers lieing its some thing the expert eyes of the purchaser as well :p

    Like i remember we bought reconditioned 86 and the engine was perfect on the last oil change i forgot to check the oil when i got home and a purchaser checked the car and when he checked oil level it was bit low.

    Sahab mechanic la aye and he says sir yeh gari port per khari rahi hai es ke ring jo haina woh cylinder main patah nahi kia bs hogaye hai hehe..
    Anyways maine woh gari 1 year chalaye no prob at all.

    Another friend was selling his new mehran and a guy said sir yeh side painted hai lol.

    All I would like to add is that in Pakistan people just don't have a problem lying.
    I mean come on we're always criticizing them gora's but just look at the damned fact that gora's take it very hard if you call them a liar.!
    We as a race adn a nation should be ashamed of ourselve's.
