    Lightbulb JDMs, The Misconceptions and Myths.

    Assalam o Alaikum Everyone.
    From the past few days a hot argument is going on between Wagon R Owners and Jdm Owners which is doing nothing but creating hatred and in the end jdm owners r accused of being so called " DEALERS " and afraid of their cars not being sold due to the amazing Success of Wagon R (LOL)
    Similar many examples r available and r creating alot of Misconceptions and Confusing potential Buyers.

    Japanese Cars:
    There is absolutely no doubt on the fact that these cars r very much advanced then the local cars manufactured here. Have a lot of attractive features and are light on fuel aswell.
    The Goods of Jdms:
    1. Much Advanced Cars with very good built quality
    2. Much Stronger.
    3. Alot of Safety Features.
    4. More Spacious
    5. Light on fuel
    6. More Reliable.
    7. Easy to drive ( in case of 660cc )
    8. Have even more features than a top of the line civic at almost half the cost
    The Bads:
    1. Side Mirrors, ( They r easily removable and expensive. Although local car mirrors arent safe as well i.e Corolla )
    2. Parts r Considerably Expensive. ( Although market cars like Mira and Alto have spares priced similar to pkdms )
    The Myths:
    1. Jdms. Especially 660cc r unreliable and heatup on long routes.
    This is not true at all. These engines are very powerful and can easily bear continuous long drives with ease.
    2. Jdms die with heavy weight. ( 660 )
    To an extent this is true, but doesn't mean that car will die with 4 people on board. If u have a small family like a couple with children 660 is fit for you. but if u r going to fit 4 100kgs+ Pehelwans inside the car will surely hesitate
    3. The Engine is very advanced and can not be understood by mechanics in pak.
    That is a big joke. The Car does not use some special engine from another universe, It uses a normal Efi engine which is now found in almost every pkdm new car and a mechanic working on a pdm car can easily work on a jdm.
    4. Car touches alot of speed breakers.
    Yes but same is the case with majority of pkdms, Blame the speed breakers not the Car
    5. Jdms are not value for money.
    If jdms r not value for money, then is 7 Lacs for a Mehran and 10 Lacs for a Cultus value for money?
    6. Jdms have Zero Resale.
    Jdms r the first choice of dealers to make money and gives alot of profit. Many owners have sold them on profit as they dont have a fixed value and their value keeps changing.
    7. Jdms r mostly Accidented
    Not All Jdms are accidented, Some are, Its the Buyers responsibility to get the car checked by a denter and ask for an auction sheet from the dealer and get it verified. And not just jdms we should get pkdms checked aswell as brand new pdms can also get hit and r locally repaired at dealerships before delivery,
    8.JDMS r Sluggish and have no pick
    They r designed to obtain optimum Fuel Economy and not for street racing . The CVT tranny isn't fun but helps to keep the rpm stable and to achieve max fuel economy, That is the reason why Vitz has a low pick at starting.
    __________________________________________________ _____________________________________

    The Reason of creating this thread was to clear up all the misconceptions growing up and to end the hatred being built among members.
    Another funny thing.
    Iv'e heard many members saying when anyone says something supporting jdm. " He is a dealer, Humari gari ki waja se in ka kaam band hogaya hai is liye bechare pareshan hai " . People, Please be sensible, We have better things to do in life rather than doing such crap here. Calling someone a dealer because he is with jdms is the height of wisdom . I or any jdm supporter have absolutely no link with buying, selling or importing jdms. I own a Pkdm and im pretty happy with it. ( Will be posting a detailed comparison bw Swift and Vitz aswell ).
    Peace
    MOD Edit: This is not a Jdm Vs Pkdm thread.
    this thread is to clear the misconceptions growing and confusing members about jdms.
    No Personal Attacks,
    Kindly keep this thread Clean.

    Laws r Made to be Broken

    Hence resale should not be considered as priority, Jdm like Aqua, Allion,Premio.
    Etc offers much more than the local XLi or GLi. Or even city

    btw - the finer detail in the picture is the missing cap on the rear speed sensor, this is the older design, also called a waste of time.

    Hahahahahaha Nice economics ! But all of these concepts are only therotical real life economy and buisness is quite different and opposite to these theories plus you can not compare satisfaction gained from an eatable with a vehicle which is a valuable asset !

    Back in 2006 when we were buying Lancer, many people said that it has parts issue, manufacturing fault, no resale etc etc but going against the norm we bought that car and today, almost 9 years later, Alhamdulillah that car is still there just having driver side door and fender resprayed that too because of some moron who hit my parked car back in 2010.
    We have taken it to AJK, Multan, mostly to Lahore and Chakwal and not even once did the car ever break down or anything.
    Alhamdulillah it never gave ANY sort of serious issue, currently it has around 83,000 km on the odo and now 9 years later it requires only some maintenance expense that too related to engine belts and slight suspension issue, other than that, the car is running flawless Masha Allah
    As for the spare parts, everything is available, if you want brand new go to the 3S they have everything this car needs, if you want used parts, they are available in all major used parts markets, no problem at all.
    8th Gen Mitsubishi Lancer 1.3 GLX 2006; 3rd Gen Toyota Prius 1.8 S-Touring 2010; 11th Gen Toyota Corolla 1.3 GLi AT 2014.

    Everyone has different priorities thats why everyone has a different opinion on what is better.

    Those who want worry-free dealer-guaranteed service - they buy local, and brand new.
    Those who know they can tinker about, and don't mind taking a risk - they venture towards JDMs.
    There is the third type - they just go with the flow around them (ustad jee's recommended brand, competing with cars of extended family members, the new fad in town, etc)

    So guys, just relax. Eat ice cream.
    Selling Vitz+local cars - compatible bluetooth Ecu Scantool, High-amp car chargers, Apple-certified Lightning Cables, etc. Click on my name and see my started threads for details.

    Yes bro indeed it was a wise choice, the level of comfort in this car and the driving pleasure is unmatched.
    Many people are after me to buy this car but I always politely reject them as this car is now a part of the family
