    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!

Other general everyday thing around us have increased already so i fear we will have to pay this

    but i've read in news paper today that gov. has decided to reverse that tax on eatable goods, but m not sure about tax on cars, dealer called me yesterday he said meeting is going on with seniors of suzuki motors & today he called me to say that suzuki motors decided to apply that tax so i have to give extra money through pay order in the name of pk suzuki co. ltd.

    i guess you will have to pay it than ... waisay if bank idiots hadn't delayed your case you would not had to pay it ... bug the bank about this, also i presume you have already booked your car and if its in the back date than shouldnt you be exempt from paying the tax since your deal was done before this new rule?

    Swift is just a superior version of cultus.. same poor build quality..

    Mehran in non metallic color is available for 615 and metallic in 620 without any extra cost.

    If you want to wait for the revised prices, then the price is 10k less with a signed bond that you will have to pay the difference if the prices are increased. No price increase was decided as of yesterday

    hi salam..
    how are you baqai!
    yar i am quite busy these days with too hectic schedule & extra duties & i dont have much time to take a nap even..
    thats why was out of touch! just got little time to check whats happening around!
    well first of all thanks for your concern regarding my ride or related issues!
    as you know dealer (naseer autos) got the pay order but he held it up due to that stupid tax issue, he said he was waiting for confirmation of increased tax then i've to pay the difference..
    i called him on Tuesday he said he forwarded my order to company with a comment "agar company accept krti hai to theek hai werna apko difference pay krna hoga, agar accept ho gya to main apko inform ker doon ga 2 din may" & there is no fone call yet..
    i was busy too even didnt got time to call him to ask! i'll call him tomorrow let see what he says!
    he told me car would be delivered to me in 15-20 days after confirmation of booking!
    ab dekho kya banta hai, now its too long!!

    Good luck on getting your ride

    We are planning to get a Swift in white through bank lease too, the reason for financing is, we have a boutique and we rather invest all the money in business rather than paying the cost of Swift up-front

    Gave 3 banks the documents needed, so basically waiting to see which one comes through first.

    Had issues with statement, since my mom is on pension, and receives her pension through internet-banking(from Norway) and we weren't really bothered with keeping a good statement. We have an account in Allied bank, but never really used it lol.

    Guidance to everyone;
    If the bank does not approve you for finance, there are many people in open car market which act sweet and tell you not to worry, i'll get the car on my name, you just gotta pay the down-payment, and give me the monthly installments, stay away from them!

    Even if they give you the car, they can still blackmail you by asking to drive it, and on the last few remaining installments, even steal the car and pay it them self. So be careful
    Make Du'a that our case gets approved too

    My mom preferred a Vitz, but i don't fancy used things, always been new for me, and since it will be my first time with a car, a new one is best, incase something happens on the road and i don't have a clue what to do etc. I am going to go for white version, <3
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

    DLX without Navigation, manual all the way

    A close friend of my uncle will get the car on his name, since he has a pretty good statement, and he has leased more than 3 cars before, so he has more success chances.

    After a couple of months, when i turn 18, it will be transferred to my mom/ my name

    With closed eyes, go for brand new Swift DX model (which is the entry-level model of it). The feel of zero-meter car is always better then buying used car!

    You guys did the right thing, not because Vitz was "fancy" JDM. The previous gen Vitz was uglier and was more girl-orientated then the true hatch, if that was the option. The only Vitz I liked was the 2011+ model, which is quite better version of Vitz and the interior looked good too...

    Salam to all.
    today i called the dealer (naseer autos) he said ur order is still awaiting for confirmation, company still not accepting any order, due to increase taxation & car prices. new rates would be issued by 1st july then will decide what to do..
    how pathetic these people are. bank has given payorder to dealer by 15th june & today is 29th, just waste of time..

    its the problem of us coz we are pakistani people, once they got to know tax would be applied after 1st july so they are wasting the time of innocent people..
    m too mad of it! :@
