    Exclamation Buy or Not Chevy Optra

    I need an experts suggestion
    I am getting a low mileage 2005 Optra 1.6 AUTO TRANSMISSION, TOTALLY Petrol driven.

    Now I need to know about whether I should buy it or not. I know it has Low Resale and Parts are expensive, but I need to know stuff other than that like does it have any mechanical Failure or anything atleast in Pakistan because my cousin in KUWAIT told me that over there it starts slipping gears like from rather 3rd gear to 4th it goes straight to 5. Has anyone had this problem cause I really liked the cars build quality and drive.

    Thanks!

    Interesting topic, i like the car too! But 10 was too much for it no matter how good the condition. This is what you have to face when selling a car not popular in public.

    as you are in lahore so i'll advice you visit Chevrolet platinum @abbot road (authorized dealers)
    IMO optra is a nice car if kept with care..
    your mechanic misguided you coz he cannot handle this car...
    the only problem is what you already know expensive parts...
    and i have never of any mechanical problem in that car...

    Optra costs a lot but resale is quite low, don't buy it for 10 ... max price for an outstanding car should be under 9.

    If merc, BMW are white elephants then optra is intermediate elephant. repair would not be a problem it is just the availability and cost of spares. If u buy a well kept car and keep it well kept it might give u a good service without any major repairs for another 4-5 yrs.

    I could be potential buyer in future
