    tbh brother my heart does not agree on spending 24 25 lacks on a used car. when we have a new car available and then the used car will have to go workshops and stuff. I had a budget of around 26 at first I was looking for a 07 08 premio xex package and I found great cars but then I said why not buy a new one at least it will be 0 meter and I will be the first owner. jdm and old cars men dil men shak he rehta hai k kahin accident na hua ho iska bla bla. and as per now paki cars are giving good stuff in them. the only thing lacking is build quality that is not good

    if you can get a Mercedes 05 06 c180 which is shah nawaz maintained that would be a tough competitor with the new cars

    While doing your maths you forgot these cars were worth a lot more than 2 million when bought new and Maintenance Costs & spares does not devalue along with car resale.

    I myself am a jdm lover.
    I used corolla x for 3 years and it served me great.
    but when it comes to spending 25 26 lacks then I would preffer a bit low quality but new car.
    this is my opinion.

    bhai Accord 2005 1 year ki maintenance and parts Civic ki price se exceed kar jayen ge.

    Ya phir banda Shershah mein kabar ke chakar laga kar pagal ho jaye ga.

    New Wagon R and Cultus bhi 1998 Mercedes C180 ya 2005 Civic ya Altis se zyada ki sell hoti hai.

    Everyone has their diff mindsets, I preffer reconditioned JDMs than these local built crap. Because I have seen a dispatched 2011 Civic. Almost brand new and it's parts quality.. you just dont wanna see that if you've already bought a civic

    Bro New is New and Old is Old, Jdm's are good cars but sourcing their parts is a Pain in the ***, A new pkdm would atleast serve u well for 5 years with easy maintainence

    I had a buget of 2.6 million some months ago and I opted for a 2010 Toyota Prius S-Touring from a reliable importer and not a showroom. Alhamdulillah the car's condition speaks for itself, it is serving me well and turns more heads than a civic

    Bro my car is in Barcelona Red color, google it. And I can assure you about it's turning heads, don't forget this is Pakistan, it might not attract attention in other countries but it does that pretty well here

    In my 26 years of car ownership, I have bought and sold 10 cars. After my second car, a used Daihatsu Charade G100 with 27,000Km, I swore never to buy a used car ever again ...... specially in Pakistan. Despite taking all the denters and mechanical ustaads to check out the car I later found out it had been in a major crash and the odometer had been tampered with. Alhumdolilah all cars hence have been zero meter.

    So despite all the things going for a used JDM car, quality and all, I am not so rich as to risk 26 lacs on a used car when I can get a pretty decent one from the local factory complete with a 2 year warranty. NO ALTERNATIVE TO PEACE OF MIND
