ISLAMABAD -- On a recent visit to Lahore, Pakistan's second-largest city, I went to a part of town along Jail Road that is home to many car dealerships. Posing as a customer, I visited one of the shops and asked a sales representative some questions.   

My aim was to confirm my suspicion that dealerships there were still using unfair tactics to force customers into paying extra for cars -- an issue that came to light several years ago.
