Al Awir Used Car Market (or Al Aweer) - Dubai Municipality Used Cars Showroom Complex

Al Awir Used Car Market, Ras Al Khor Industrial Area -

a great place to look around and see everything




from your most feared POS jalopy to exotic carriages you thought only existed in Jeremy Clarkson's imagination. But take a good dose of salt with everything you hear and Caveat Emptor should be painted on the windshield of every car there. Undoubtedly there are some good cars available but how are you going to recognise them from the questionable imports, the ones that have been clocked, the insurance write-offs welded together again, and so on? The market has a poor reputation and prices don't seem particularly cheap compared to other used car sources. Except for perhaps the auctioned cars.
The complex has over 100 dealers, a car registration department, insurance companies, and a branch of the Middle East Bank so you don't even need your own money.
Opening hours are 7:30 am to 2:00 pm and 4:30 pm to 11:00 pm Saturday to Wednesday, maybe half day only on Thursday, possibly Fri afternoons for dealers. This could change after 01 Sep 2006 when government sector changes weekend for Thu/Fri to Fri/Sat.
