what is it ?
in japanese auction,s these totalled cars are less than half the price of a clean 3+ grade vehicle, our dealers and showroom walas import them ( being cheap ) and do the sub par repair job in belal ganj and sell them new.
is it any good ?
if cheap likewise, but repair jobs in pakistan are substandard and vehicle shows these signs after a few months .worst off, our dealers dont tell if a car is reparied or not. i have seen people buy MOVES and MIRAs from showroom only to have the climate control not work and car making squeks here and there
what to do ?
auction sheet ! always ask for auction sheet and the vehicles JAPANESE auction house fotos which show the condition of the veh AT THE TIME of import. this way you will know if the car was totalled or not
verify the auction report, it can be done easily for veh that are 3 months old,
in japan too, vehicles are repaired and sold, but those are graded R or RA in auction reports, the repair job is very high quality and genuine, there is no harm in getting a R grade vehicle. but do avoid the ones with a XX on engine and roof , it means the car had front accident and engine was repaired / replaced . door and back XX are fine
