    Default Lancer 1.6 GLx OR City VTEC Steermatic

    Salam Bhaio

    I am on verge of a buying decision. I would have made this decision last month but someone suggested to wait for a month and get yourself a 2007 model (which was a wise suggestion). So am planning to buy one of the subjected cars in Jan 2007 inshaAllah. I will maintain it for 5 years.

    I just need your help to decide which one to buy considering following points in their priority:

    Lancer 1.6 GLX (CNG) vs CITY VTEC Steermatic

    1. Drive quality
    2. Comfort
    3. Parts and repair cost (not the regular maintenance)
    4. market value after 5 years. (considering that a new model/shape of both cars maybe launched within next 5 years)
    5. Value for money

    PS. I also heard from a reliable source in Atals company that the prices of Civic and City Vtec will be reduced in near future to promote their sales. He did not mention when and how much would be the reduction.

    I'll share my experience with the Lancer. Booked 1.3 GL in Oct 04 - got delivery in Feb 07. Car has done 28000 km and no problem so far. Car feels underpowered at low RPM (2nd gear) but I'm sure the 1.6 has better power to weight ratio. My brother has a 2005 1.3 M/T city and I can easily beat his car in acceleration and top speed. One thing I have noticed in quite a few Citys.... they RUST. The interior is shoddy and fabric comes off. The bumpers are flimsy and come unhooked at the smallest bump. My Lancer was rear-ended by a Shehzore and the bumper was not even damaged so I guess its a stronger car.

    Go for the Lancer... even though I hate Dewan for lowering the price to 839,000 (I bought it at 999,000 and still paying the lease).
    Speed thrills and kills better than anything else.

    Salam

    @doc you'r quite right that after keeping a car for 5-6 years, resale shouldn't be an issue. but the resale of corolla and mehran has actually made us greedy and we are always thinking of spending less and getting more, an example is that my father bought a new Fx in 84 for I think 74,000 and when it was sold in 2000 it went for 125,000 and the person who bought it from us further sold it for 140,000. Same is the case with corolla and mehran etc. in Pakistan, and i can't understand why is it so. Examples like such really make one think that what one will get when he sells his car.

    @excalibur its really annoying when you are paying the lease and the price is dropped by the company.

    One more thing is that there are many chances that honda decreases the price of Vtec because of poor sales (as its becoming quite common and also as idsi price was reduced) but I don't think that Dewan's gona reduce the price of Lancer as they have already done that so buying a Lancer may prove better in terms of resale.

    every one knows that HONDA is a better brand then MITSUBISHI.

    Hahahaha!

    Please talk with reference to the availability in Pakistan.

    If you prefer a Pakistani tin ka dabba over a JDM car ... then its your choice.

    @gemguy ...

    Ive yet to see any of the new lancers under 7 lakhs.

    Honda PK are a trash can on wheels and nothing else...

    Dont get me started becoz there quality problems are well known everywhere...

    How would you like to see that u spend 9 lakhs over yr city and the dorr fabric starts peeling off after just 3 months and yr dashboard starts squeaking and rattling after 6 months of use??

    and btw...

    G-CON..u r another one of the paindoos who got fooled by HONDA ATLAS's stupid publicity...

    G-Con is nothing big and it is a crumple-zone method which u can find in every New car!..

    I'm not talking abt the local assembled ****...but all reputed cars!...

    and yeah...Lancer has crumple zones also!

    @gem_guy hmmmm baita ur talking abt 4 hp that makes no difference yup i agree , but with 100cc less then lancer 4 hp makes a HUGE difference in technology, leave it . let us compare 1.6 lancer (japan) with 1.6 (pak)honda , hahaha 1.6 lancer producing only 77 kilowatt, on the other hand 1.6 pak honda 96 kilowatt.

    @Rl589...

    by now i am really thinking that its useless to talk to you!...

    Good comparison by you...But tell me sincerely...

    Is horsepower the deciding factor when buying a car??...specially for Pakistan??...where you dont even have nice freeways or racing circuits to use the power??!!!


    Honda indeed produces more Horsepower...but...Look at the crappy trash-can like quality!...

    Dude..if u love Honda so much...just buy a shitty Frog-like City with rattling Dashboard and body made of the thinnest metal sheets available!...

    Ur making no sense.
    If u didnt already knw this , the City and Civic are JAPENESE cars , assembled in Pakistan.
    Talking as if Honda is a Pakistani company .
    And they make the crappiest quality cars available , along with Toyota Indus , Pak Suzuki etc.
    w0i dO p3oPL3 TyP3 L1K3 tH15 , or should i say , Di5?

    @doc , some of ur frnds saying honda made rattling dashboards and thinnest metal sheet then how u can claim they r assembled in pak parts are fully imported , first match the statememts , if the car is only assembled in pak then the body will be the same as lancers , this makes sense,

    no offenece! but what i understood is that the companies like Honda and Toyota although manufacturing cars in Pakistan are foriegn companies. and there are also taking the revenue back to their home countries in the form of profit.
    In pakistani market i donot see any local automobile company. (not sure about REVO)
    Never the less a person should buy a car worth its money. I suppose in the Pakistani market every car is over priced in its category (Due to high profit margins or govt. taxes, whatever may be the reason). Just compare prices of Pakistan car market with Indian car market. And when a person is getting a japan assembled car at the price of locally assembled car he should go for a foriegn car.
    I am also going to purchase a new car in Feb07. I have two options;
    1. A cousin of mine will be selling his city2006 1.3L next month which is in very good condition.
    2. Buy a new lancer 1.6GLX GV.

    option 1 saves alot of money.
    option 2 buy a better car but ofcouse much expensive and low resale.

    After reading all the arguments of previous ten days, it has helped me to decide in favor of Lancer unless someone give me solid enough reason not to buy lancer except resale.(as i will be keeping this car for atleast 5years and i am sure its resale will increase as i can see a constantly increasing number of lancers in Lahore)

    @rl

    Even doc has told you the same thing...

    what you are saying is uselss and senseless!...

    so plzz back off now!..

    btw...Even if the items are imported they are assembled in paki factories!..

    Fittings are badly carried out and Quality Control is a word totally unheard of!!..

    moreover...only major parts are imported...rest al is milaawat!!
