    Default ZERO METER CAR VS 15,000 KM DRIVEN CAR (PDM only)

    Dear Pakwheelers
    I need ur suggestion on the following.

    For the last 15-17years i have been buying Zero meter cars and then selling them after use of 4-7years. These cars have been ranging from Khyber to Margallla to Corolla all have given me good trouble free service, without any hiccups and with very good mileages (i am a soft driver)

    This time i have decided to buy a 10-15k kms driven Corolla

    People always say that the first 10,000km are always important for a new car, so if i buy from someone, offcourse i dont know how that car was driven, so do u think it would give me the same GOOD/LOW MILEAGE as my other zero meter cars OR it would run according to the first owner who bought it as zero meter

    You mean the the low mileage factor totally depends upon how it was driven for the first 10000kms, no matter how softly the second owner drives it ?

    yes not only mileage but many other different things associated with it. Its like when u raise a kid on malnutrition so no matter how lavish u feed him being grown up the effects cant be reversed and vice versa. Its a layman example . About technicalities experts like Xulfiqar can guide u better.
    I will advise u to buy a new one or buy a 2nd hand from someone who u know very well, his driving habits and the way he keeps the car, like we got one uncle in our family and I ll prefer his used car over a new one any day. He got a civic orial 2011 and u know what till date its been driven only 588 kms. This is his spare car and his running cars are like this that people say that if he can afford he will drill two holes on the floor of his car for his legs and will lift his car over puddles etc.
    My dear ALLAH when I loose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointment and Your plans for my life are better than my Dreams.

    Waiting for a car in our uncertain industries is something truly very patience testing.

    If I were you and did not want to buy a new vehicle like I assume to be your case, I would buy a second one. However, condition needs to be judged by the state of the car's steering, gear knob, titanium finishes (if any), etc. Mileage is easily tempered with in our country and, even if genuine, anything can happen within even low readings on the odometer. My Corolla was banged before it reached 3000 miles even.

    I have a couple of friends who can judge whether or not if any touch ups etc, but my major concern is that if the first owner has driven the car roughly, rather with hard footing then if I drive the car softly would I be able to get the BEST LOW fuel consumption out of it.

    Every one is entitled to his opinion, but i say all this is ********.

    there are 3 things which matters
    1)car being accedent free
    2) car being properly maintained
    3) and in your case it should be really 10 to 15k driven not some meter reverse case.


    It does not matter in any way if the car is driven fast or driven slow.
    RIP

    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"
