    Because , KArachi is big city we all know.. many organization give cars to their employ this is the first reason..
    rule of used car is directly prop to the quantity of piece..
    more quantity , less amount , quick sale

    I think it is due to the fact that the Karachi is a city near Sea and due to the sea, air contain a lot of salt which is harmful for car bodies. The cars of Karachi got rust pretty soon compared to other cities and have a shorter life so the price is less compared to other cities where the cars bodies don't caught rust so easily.

    I'm sorry to break this to you mate but this is like the second most retarded thing I've heard after Justin Bieber's new song.

    Sorry, I couldn't control myself from posting this as that's the only thing I can add to this response.

    hahhahahahahahhahahahahah, wtf?

    coming back to the topic, its maybe because many people have stopped giving **** about pdm and instead getting more value for their money by buying jdm, u come to karachi ul see so many jdms on the roads, VITZ, AXIO, AIRWAVE, PREMIOS, PASSOS, MIRAS, therefore demand for local cars has really dropped, if not by a very huge margin but by a considerable one and thats good....in other parts of pakistan most of you are still stuck on your corollas, your 2000 model corolla gets old, you buy 2003 model, ure 2003 model gets old u buy 2006, 2006 to 2008, 2008 to 2010, 2010 to 2012, and so on.... lol

    brother simply because there is lots and lots of car in karachi and more popoulation more people buy more car and more cars means less price.

    a 2005 civic in karachi compare to 2005 civic in newyork and 2005 civic in mozambique have all different values.

    Been born here in karachi, I come across cars over 20 years older then me. Hence it proves, rust n climatic conditions do not affect cars very much. It is simply a myth by upcountry ppl who try to sell their cars at higher price than actual value...otherwise ppl will go for khi cars....

    No Hard feelings here Hairs but this is what that you hear from all the car dealers in Rawalpindi Islamabad as the Karachi cars here have very low resale. I myself has one Karachi number car but this is common reason cited by car dealers for Karachi cars
