    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!

    Ikr, that thing is annoying

    My friend bought a new cg 125 a few weeks ago, and he had to pay 99,000 for it, because of the 1% increase in tax. Now they refuse to pay it back, since it has been removed... Pakistan at it's finest, they try to squeeze every penny out of you.

    Until we get our car ,we have got a cheap rental car, a 2004 santro, 24 hours for only 1500 rs-/ and all repairs are due to be done by them
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

    what we can do for this! this is clearly a sort of cheating with people.
    thats good having car, i think ur car process would take upto 6 weeks then u'll drive it. in my case i am waiting it for so long. until i get my car i usually use bike or sometimes my bro's car..
    just pray for prices of new cars i've heard some where that gov. has increased 5% prices for cars along with 1% increase of GST. so we have to pay 6% extra, then swift would be too expansive..
    lets see what happens!

    Habib bank has the car leasing office in Faisalabad, so the documents will be sent tomorrow IA and I hope that the car won't be on booking, e.g wait for it to come from Karachi, that would Pi$$ me off really badly

    And i really want to buy a new bike just to keep me busy

    And the 6% uff How much is registration btw?

    In which city you are? why not financing available there! its strange!
    from which bank are you dealing with?
    i think car would be on booking bcoz most of the banks finance cars by booking or not by ready delivery, in my case i am dealing with faysal bank & car is on booking, means waiting of 15-20 days after booking!

    yar right now am not sure about exact registration cost i think it would be around 45-50k.

    I am in Faisalabad. Banks dealing with me atm is Meezan, BOP and Habib.

    Once the documents are through, the bank contacts the Showrooms for prices etc. I will kindly request them to give me a car which is available, and not on booking.

    A JDM dealer scared me, he said Swift reg. cost 70k+ since it is over 1300cc category. I was thinking he was bullshitting lol

    Going to buy CG 125 today, will post pics later tonight. Take care xx

    salam, how are you dear!
    wish you good luck for clearance of ur documents so that ur process get a step ahead! so you get ur ride in couple of weeks..
    you can request bank but my friend they have their own rules & regulations jis k agey kisi ki bhi nai chalti. i think most of the banks have delivery by booking same as in my case.

    few months back my friend registered a swift for 45k (as far as i remember) now see wht hapns after budget Bcoz prices of registrations are also increased! zada se zada 50-55k tak ho gai hogi, 70k is too much..

    yar i also like CG 125 but you know in karachi 125s easily get snatched or stolen you cant be in peace. m using Sohrab cdi 70 2003 :p chori hone ka koi dar nahi, economical as well 65+kms/lit.

    Haha, fun to know

    I purchased a red CG 125- today, AlhamduLillah It will keep me busy until the snail banks give me approval

    When i went to Allied bank to get my pay order done, he told me to try Dubai islamic bank, he said that they are very quick at these things...so i am kinda wondering :O
    Hopefully they charge less than 50k for reg. xD
    Good luck to you too
