    Default no market for Toyota Passo?

    we have recently goten a 2006 Toyota Passo from karachi. the car cost 9laks when 16thousand delivery charges to Peshawar is added. the car was bought with the intention of reselling it here for a bit of profit. there were ads given of this car on many websites including this one. it got parked in a bargain for many days and its ad was given in newspaper. now theres a sticker on the back saying 'For sale' but still nothing. its been quiet a while now and it seems as if there is no market for this car at all.

    im wondering about the reasons for it sitting for so long with no buyers? could it be that its initial buying price is too high? or are people simply arnt willing to buy this car for reasons unknown? i have just come to see this car recently but i have known that these have been around for several years already so why are these such headache to sell?

    i think u got a slow selling car in a higher price
    investment in cars like 1000cc vitz, 660cc alto, or probox, AD is wise i think
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Passo has a low resale. And Its resale is bit matter in few Cities, Like KHI/LHR/ISB .

    Passo sells fine and is selling fine,so the problem isnt in that.When did you buy this car?

    If you bought it a month ago,then why buy a 2006 model which is prob an old import.Color of the car? specs? any pictures? I tried going through your profile and couldnt find an ad.

    Look i do this for a living,its taken me close to 8 years to get good at this business and i still make mistakes.You just bought the wrong car,model color etc it happens to everyone,we wither buy something that we think will sell and it doesnt,the market comes down etc.

    Its no big deal,cut your losses,sell the car for no profit or a bit of a loss and move on,free up the money buy another car and you will make money on that.

    Its a good business but its never easy as anything we do in life,its a learning process and we learn from our mistakes (and others) so smile,thank God for what you have and move on.

    you have bought the car at party rate, not dealer rate. thats where you went wrong... a good setup in Khi might have given u the option of buying the same car at around 25K less. I couldve sold the same car to u at that rate.
    but anyway, lesson learnt, time to move on.. like Alta rightly said.

    @Alta. car was bought few months ago. dont know if it was sitting on port or had arrived fresh. color of car is silver. is 1000cc no hids and 2 air bags front. here is the ad that was given of it by another relative of mine.
    Used Toyota Passo 2006 Car for sale in Peshawar - 405617 | Pakwheels

    @talha hani. any1 from anywhere is welcome to buy it but at least no one seems to want it here in Pesh maybe due to its price?
