    Default Honda City Debacle

    Honda city debacle in India. Currently the government is looking into the matter of Honda overpricing their cars under the MRTP act. A honda city in India lacks the most basic features including Alloys wheels and a cd changer offered by other cars in the segment with a price premium of INR 250000 over the competition. Additionally Honda Jazz, another car from the honda stable has eaten into its sedan sales.


    Source Wikipedia.org


    I was surfing the net and learned about this, my point is simple why our goverment is such sissy to look after their people and provide them with quality and featured good,





    PS: Mods i have no attention to malign the goverment of Pakistan.

    Bros i agree india mein suzuki hit hai, my point is that Alloy Wheels ko aur Cd changer ko india mein must have feature key tor per liya jata hai, aur goverment price check rakhti hai jab key pakistan mein car key features aur quality per kio check and balance goverment nahie rakhti jis ki waja sey hum basic features sey deprived hain.

    Guyz let me put one thing straight.


    Lets stop talking bout India all the time. We cant compare Pakistan to India any more. In the last 15 years india has gone years ahead of Pakistan.


    Lets be a little kind to our setups and campare it wid our other naighbour Afghanistan.

    Alloy Wheels and ICE* are Considered as Accessories for most cars.Mostly High End Options comes with Alloy Wheels.In this case ,may be Honda want to strip the city to get a Cheaper Basic Version of City ?Check this Link for Honda City ,where Alloy Wheels are shown as Accessory!


    http://www.hondacarindia.com/city/brochureExternal.aspx


    *-ICE stands for In-Car Entertainment.


    Then,The Australian Review of City also shows that this is the case for Honda City Internationally as well?



    Back to the cabin. The top spec VTi-L model being tested seems a bit lacking when it comes to features; alloy wheels, power windows, power mirrors, cruise control and central locking about top the feature list off. A single-disc CD player and average sounding four-speaker sound system leave a lot to be desired. Although, it does offer MP3, USB and iPod integration.

    http://www.caradvice.com.au/38091/ho...and-road-test/



    But,Honda cars are not cheaper cars and I think Alloy Wheels are all expected.I think Honda have resolved this issue now?


    In India ,many dealers will offer a discount+accessories for a new car purchase.But this Honda City seems to be the first case I am aware(of medium luxuary sedans) of where Alloywheels are not standard part of the car.Honda Actually Builds good cars.Only Problem I heard about a major car company is Skoda(Subsidiary of Volkswagen) whose Service support seems to be Bad.

    Honda's City is up for a minor revision. We know what you are asking - already? Well, yes, since the City, despite rave reviews and a basketful of awards,
    has suffered from some niggling issues
    . Such as some poorer quality plastic bits and general customer complaints regarding lack of kit. Not any more.











    Come this October and the 1st anniversary City will be available at your local Honda dealer. Two new trim levels will now be available for the City - the existing 1.5 S MT and the new 1.5 V MT and 1.5 V AT. The 1.5 E MT and 1.5 S AT have already been discontinued and are no longer available for booking. The 1.5 S will receive new colour options along with better quality interior trim as well as rotary controls for the airconditioning. There is some talk of the car also getting the multiplex display from the Civic, but that hasn't been confirmed. The V version might get leather interiors, 15-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps and the same changes as the S trim. Expect a price change in the region of 1-2 per cent for the S variant and the V variant to be priced in the region of Rs 9.2 to 9.7 lakh.







    The Civic too will receive an update, commencing early September. Changes include a minor facelift to the front bumper and grille, new alloy wheels, fog lamps for the V version and the addition of a USB port, along with new colour options. A small price hike is expected here too.

    my point is also this that in every country when new cars are purchased customer is provided with discounts and other attractive features, India definately has taken a hard notice and which means that no one can exploit its people thats what democratic country means.


    unlike in Pakistan we are more exploited only so called scrafices are given for democracy no actual relief is given to us. Make me sad every time i think about it.

    Default Exploitation

    I agree with all above comments. very true Pakistan is country where you pay bribe even when u purchase a new car of any make. The dealer exploit people in the name of booking and intentionly delay the delivery of cars, forced the purchaser to pay the bribe. All car manufactures are supporting them on this unethical business practices. We have no option other than to suffer in the hands of pimps [Car Dealers].

    perfect - I would say.

    These so called dealers in Pakistan are run by criminal businessmen - and having no audit bodies to be afraid of - they can do whatever they want.
