    Default I am being sold a new shape vitz for 12.8 lacs. Am i being swindled?

    AoA brothers,

    I recently went to a dealer as I am interested in new shape Vitz. He showed me pictures of one in Karachi that just cleared customs which was 2011 model, 16,000km and 1,000cc. And price was 12.80. I have seen most of ads on Pakwheels and new vitz is around 14-16. He claimed that auction sheet rating was 4.5 so that made it harder to believe. So what's you opinion should i buy or not? It arrives in about a week so i will have a chance to actually look at it.

    Brother new shape vitz 2011-12 is selling for 12-13 lacs in karachi.

    Prices at PW are on higher side with margin of negotiation.

    New shape vitz doesn't even cost 12-13 lacs.

    Duty is 4lac freight 1.30.

    Now please don't tell me it costs 7lac PKR Buying.

    If ure getting one in that price, check the car and if u like it buy it

    My friend bought two new shape vitz 2012 both had minor accidents and mileage under 5000km
    Both costed roughly 1425-1475
    Price was a bit high because of self import and rishwat 😜

    Get the car checked for any mechanical issues etc if u still find the ride sweet go for it 👍

    Is this case? I checked a Japan auction website Toyota / Vitz - Japanese used cars exports and Japan car import / 2011 ? / Page1 [ tradecarview ] that base price of most is around 9,000USD+ customs+shipping so it must be accidented?

    Which site would you recommend for checking the auction sheet? I Asked for auction from dealer he said it was 4.5 but was being sketchy and saying "you don't need etc. etc."

    Sounds fishy.
    Verify here, its a bit tricky though. There are threads on this matter, better search the forum.

    I searched tradecarview after reading ur thread, there were 3-4 pretty decent rides around 8k $, after negotiation they will sell at 7200-7500$ IMO. Contact Shazeb Rasheed (Sharabi), He will clear ur ride from Port with a fee of around 35-40k.

    And as a user said that 4 lac is duty then u can have a decent ride in under 1.3m and on top of that u'll be satisfied of not being coned.

    take a look Toyota Vitz DBA-NSP130(2011) / F / US$7,900 / 7,700 km / Miya-House Co,LTD - Japanese Used Car [ tradecarview ]

    Please don't believe in dealers. Sometimes they themselves don't know things but they mention,
