I just moved back to Karachi after a decade abroad and now I need a car so I can move around easily. A little disclaimer: I'm pretty ignorant about cars. So I'm hoping you guys can give some suggestions and guidance.
My main requirement is that it should have an automatic transmission. Constantly shifting gears will be a pain in Karachi traffic. I think the budget is reasonable and my brother was even suggesting that we could lease the car. Although, I'm not entirely sure whether or not it's even practical to lease a car. What do you all think?
I don't want a sedan and would prefer a small hatchback because once I start work, I'll be frequenting high traffic areas of Saddar etc. and parking will be a problem.
Some friends suggest the Toyota Vitz, some say the Suzuki Swift and one friend was suggesting I should get a 2006 (?) automatic City.
Currently, we have a the new Corolla and an old Vitz, I like the Vitz a lot and wouldn't mind the newer model. I have read on this forum that it has a lot of safety features which the other small cars don't have which is a great thing.
So help me to decide if I should settle for the Vitz or some other hatchback
Also, if I were to purchase a car, what is the best way to go about it? Should I go and get it from one of the car dealers on Khalid Bin Walid road? Should I look at the classified newspaper section? Or should I get it from an official Toyota showroom? I am really clueless.
I also don't know what to look for in a car? If I'm getting a second hand car, how much mileage should I look for? What are some pro-tips you all can give me as a first-time car buyer in Pakistan.
Thanks a lot.
