    I saw the word "karhabtik" used for "your car" in a post regarding Tunisian dialect.

    Is this word specific to motorized vehicles? Does it refer to wheeled motorized vehicles? If you had a horse and buggy, what would you call the buggy in Tunisian? How do you say "cart" as in a cart from which street-foods are vended?

    Thank you.

    Yes, a car is called " karhaba"
    horse-drawn buggy or carriage is called "keriTa" كريطاarabized from the Italian carretto.
