    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!

    Saeed bhai i've visited few of the showrooms, in karachi there are alot of "thugs" out there ready to make you fool, even experienced persons also got fooled easily.. its a quit hard job to search a god jdm car! after that karachi jese city may car rod pe aey gi to lage gi to zaroor, so here comes the step of maintenance, jdm parts are too expnsive!
    to bhai i am just little bit on the side of brand new pkdm rather jdm.. in medicine i've good decision power, per in mamalaat may decision power weak hai.. in other words let me take some more help...

    Fahad..ap apne available options ko narrow down karo pehle to..then un options ke pros n cons list down karo like price, insurance, maintenance, availability of parts, labour, buying n selling risks, resale etc. U will soon get to a decision. One tip though, go for Adamjee insurance.

    that what i did at the start of this thread!
    having all the points in mind choice is between passo/vitz & swift!
    thats the main confusion, but uptill this point, i am little bit on swift's side!
    most of the people said the same but i want more reviews/opinions so i make a final decision.
    i want a sold final outcome so that i would not be regretting in future..

    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 can safely say that you will buy SWIFT, i have kept one. you won't regret it. i have kept Vitz also. you are right about fake milage, change of all oils right after purchase, parts are costly, electronic sensors are not easily available. just to give you an idea, my vitz AC compressor got faulty after a car wash. it cost me 20,000 to replace it. i had to change balancing rods, costed me 3000. both on Suzuki Swift will not be 10,000 and 800 respectively.

    Swift is not that bad in comfort, seats are large, black interior is quick in catching dust and therefore requires more maintenance, same would be true for Vitz or Passo that has black trim. Swift interior finishing lacks quality - that you will accept since its a Suzuki. any moter mechanic can fix it, hence no trouble after 5 years.

    Selling swift is quite easy, mine got sold on 2nd day of putting AD of pakwheels, selling 10 years old Vitz means you will lose some money and it wont sell real soon.

    one aspect is about radioactive elements present is JDMs, few cars imported are from the area where Japan had neuclear plant that got damaged due to fire. if you land up buying one of those, you will surely regret your decision.

    my suggestion to you is GO FOR SWIFT

    brother

    keep the stories , finance degrees and all other types of mumbo jumbo on the side...

    The key is common sense and rizwan khan seems to have adequate.

    go with my advise for the mehran else go for the swift and lets call it a day

    Hi guys..
    first of all thanks all of you for helping me about this confusing issue, your valuable suggestions helped me out & i've finally decided to get a brand new SWIFT DLX. As i've mentioned earlier i would get this through bank financing, so now i've started all the paper works for it & applied for all the requirements at my work place, bank & other. All the things would be in my hand by monday or tuesday. then i'll submit all of these after having a meeting with finance representative.
