    Default Car Prices after June - Budget.

    Like two weeks ago, I was asking either to keep corolla se saloon or buy nissan wingroad.

    Well, today i took a test drive and decided to keep running se saloon.

    But during all this course, i got another confusion

    The person there told me that car prices are going to be dropped quite considerably after budget, so the corolla se saloon 2006 which i have will loose its resale and i should consider selling it now.

    If thats true, should i change it with city 2010 around model so price change wont effect me.

    Am i thinking in right direction or should i just keep driving se saloon, which is under 60k of mileable and running great.

    The same has been suggested to me as well by a relative who is very active in new and used car dealing in Peshawar, but, i still call it a mere rumour, since, it has never happened in the past and is very unlikely in the future. Can you recall a single instant when anything...anything ever lost price in Pakistan...

    with no offence to any member, people relying on rumour mill of price drop for vehicles are living in FOOL's paradise

    with gold price @ US$ 1662 per ounce, fuel prices floating @ US$ 100+ a barrel and Pakistan gold & dollar reserves depleting at hyper-speed what measure the current govt will take to reduce prices of vehicles let alone the daily consumption goods.

    the taxation tariff HIKE is expected, Federal Budget is on May 25th wait & see

    US$1 = PKRs. 95 + by June 15th 2012

    price for daily survival will be 1.5 times of what it is today starting July 01 2012
    with spare cash buy GOLD that is the only safe investment at the moment

    There are rumors the prices may come down, but those are just that - rumors. The government is more likely to reduce prices of petrol and diesel before the elections, then raise the prices sky high once elections are over, I doubt we would even see a temporary decrease in the price of cars, in fact they are likely to increase them after the budget

    Govt can increase its revenue by decreasing duty or allowing 10 year old cars. Number of imported cars will rise by almost 50% means more revenue as duties. But then again one will loose foreign exchange(that being problem of the coming GOVT). So there are chances of such a Step by the govt.

    This news was also taking place last year specially for 1300 cc cars but this not gonna happen prices will rise for sure.....specially of imported cars
    and as far as ir concers to the opening of 10 yrs old car thn i dont think tht big fishes like indus pak suzuki etc etc will let this gonna happen
    and if this happens thn tht does'nt mean that price of cars will fall
    if some one wanna buy 2007 model thn i dont tht he'll go for 2002 or 2003
    because even on a imported cars ppl still wanna buy something new and relliable
    having same car in 2007 model does'nt mean that 2011 or 12 not gonna sell
    and opening a 10 yrs old car will be biggesT mistake of govt cause thT cars will b like a dead man walking
    and while buying a imported car ppl should go for a upper models
    because in market tht are imported cars of 2007 model having millege of 16000 or 17000 .....is tht possible dealers are making jokes with us and we are making jokes with ourselves toooo
