    Question Confused About Which Car to Buy

    Salam to all pakwheelers!
    Guys i am a middle class guy, young doctor by profession from karachi.
    now after a long wait its time for me to buy my "FIRST ride" & my maximum range would be 1100k-1250k & i've planned to buy this through bank financing!

    i've been searching several forums on pakwheels regarding different cars, both local & jdm, but now i am too much confused that i cant make a decision which one should i buy! having all the important facts in my mind i am still unable to get a way to final conclusion! so i need you people to help me!

    i like toyota vitz & toyota passo(like the most) in jdm, on other hand, suzuki swift & suzuki cultus(like the least).
    both jdm & local cars which i listed are in my budget (i think) but the facts i am thinking of:
    1. such big amount should for 50k-60k driven jdm car or zero meter local car?
    2. jdm car would be a headache for maintinence/spare parts but zero meter would'nt have any issues (what i believe)
    3. jdm cars are imported good build as compared to local one!
    4. if i buy a jdm i've to put on extra money on tuning, plugs, oils, filters, Tyre, etc but in case of local!
    5. after 5-6 years which one have good resale, a 10 years old jdm or 5 years old local!

    so keeping all this in mind regarding, good built, better choice, less maintenance & most importantly good resale value what should i go for,
    more specifically toyota passo or suzuki swift/cultus.

    I hope all you guys would give me your expert & helpful opinions, i am waiting for your kind reply.
    thank you all in advance!

    i will start from personal experience my cousin got a 2006 Toyota Ractis last year, it is such a joy and comfort to ride, but when it comes to maintenance it kills a lot of time and precious money. Its Front suspension has a rubber mounting like city idsi, it needs replacement couldnt find it any where and with its current mounting its front vibrates on high speeds. now its headlight is broken when it was parked (it happens all the time in pakistan) we have got qoute of 16000 for one peice from Bilal ganj lahore. if we change one light their color is not same and pair costs about 25 - 32 ks, And i wonder no body mentioned that but vitz and ractis are the two cars that i know are fitted with special spark plug that costs 900 rs a piece while all oue local cars are fitted with a spark plug that costs only 150 - 200 per peice.

    Conclusion considering your profession get a local made brand new car (Cultus, or Swift will do the best for you) enjoy it for four five years and then do whatever you like.

    Default Genuine Prices for Resale of JDM

    the person who started this thread was confused abt buying either pkdm or jdm etc.....im someone who is extremely confused about selling price of my JDM a 2006 Vitz. I bought the car at approx 1 Mil , now iv been told that in almost 1.5 yrs my car is priced approx between 0.85-0.9 Mil.....thats a loss of almost 100,000 Pkr. My car is in good condition true the mileage has hit around 90K but with brand new tyres & without any body work excellent clean interior , is this wat the market has to offer?? Besides the recent overflow of Vitz of all models in lahore & surrounding cities, one does bear in mind that the subsequent Dollar price has also gone up & normally that translates into a higher price for imported stuff including cars.....im not just confused infact im frankly irritated at this point....so im asking you guys here what in your opinion is a reasonable genuine price for a well maintained lhr Registered 2006 Model , 2010 Registered Vitz with life time token paid & brand new tyres worth?

    Default Confused! Which Car to buy! Urgent help needed!

    Well if your question is why you are having loss if you price your car now is that car is not an investment and it will lose its value over time. Your car might be in factory condition but well with age everything even human lose their value.
    In other parts of the world. Brand car as soon as leaves dealers lot. Lose 15-20% at once..

    really wise decision considering it's your first car, although options in used category may sound better(and they are sometimes) but they are for someone who has got sum experience in maintaining cars.

    congrats and enjoy your ride(not abuse it ).....

    Hello there!

    I also need buying advice on buying a good car. Firstly, should I buy a new Pakistani car like a Honda Civic 1.8 VTI ORIEL Prosmatic or Toyota Corolla 1.6 Altis.

    Secondly, should I buy a USED Japanese car. But before everything, I would like to know that should I go for local cars or slightly used imported cars.

    Thank You!

    Hello there!

    I have thought about getting an imported car in price range of 20-24 lacs. Do any of you have any good recommendations? I hope you all give me a reasonable answer.

    Thank You for your time.
