    Question Difference b/w JDM and PDM Civic

    First of all guys it took me 10 minutes to choose the most appropiate section for this thread. I dont understand why mods have terminated the "General Auto Discussion" thread. There are things which donnot have specific type or what ever u can call.

    Anyways comming back to the topic. I have had an arguement with one of my friend. He was claiming that PDM civic is a junk especially when it comes to safety. As in it will suffer more damage incase of any accident where as the same model of JDM one will not. He himself owns a JDM vitz so he was pretty much confident that his vitz can smash civic hard.

    With this arguement, i went to honda city sales GM and i asked him couple of questions and his answers were:

    1) PDM civic has only one thing which is local and that are "tyres". Apart from this even the stickers of ABS and green sun visor sticker is imported from abroad. Let alone bolts and nuts.

    2) Only the assembling is done in lahore where as software and all are imported aswell.

    3) Apart from cruise control, 4 less airbags and SATNAV there is no difference in PDM and JDM civic. The chassis of both variants are engineered to their best and the collision testing results are IDENTICAL.

    4) Even the glass is imported too [ie. SAINT GOBAIN]

    Well that was the GM of honda city sales showroom. What experts have to say? Like are JDM cars that GOD GIFTED? Civic in specific?

    Please note iam talking about JDM, not the USDM which has lane assist and bla bla. Its a different chassis with same engine.

    Thanks and forgive me if this is the wrong section.

    Well the price of 2million is quite justified if we see a crappy 1.3 underpowed GLi with absolutely nothing installed init other then a mp3 player and that too for 1.5 Million as a tag price. Isnt it?

    Still we should be thankful to Honda people that they didnt installed some old 1.5L just to showcase an EXi unlike rolla people who can even install a 1 litre and call it "corolla JUNIOR" just to attract 1L car market.

    Well the main difference as every one else mentioned is the safety feature i-e the airbags.
    PDM Civic is offering only 2 front airbags where as in JDM they are offering curtain type airbags aswell.
    Almost 90% parts are imported. (But as you said that the GM was saying that 100% parts are imported so he may be right)
    Next comes the assembly line where the machines are same but the labour is not upto the mark and that is the second thing after the airbag thing, where we lag behind.
    The labour and then the quality check standards are very low if compared with JDM,s QC standards.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    Sirs

    Civic has a much better crash protection then 2nd gen vitz.

    The fit/finish is inferior to JDM but its not noticeable by a person who has not driven a JDM.

    Collision testing should be identical.

    GLI is definitely under power, and you will feel it especially when someone overtakes you with a EE90 SE with a 5AFE or a 1996 EXI.

    @mubeenshahid

    no cruise control,no leather option,no nav system and very high price for pdm
    Sir not much people are in need of these things.

    I think there was a 4wd variant of 7th gen JDM Civic not offered in this generation.

    Regards
    Readers are Leaders.

    Ofcorse i have driven, The new and old aswell. In acceleration the Gli sucks big time and if we give it some time to gain speed then it feels smooth and thats the best part of it.

    What about the door panels etc.? I thought the doors etc. were made locally? I don't think the CKD kits they get here include most body parts. No?

    so the civic is not pakistan made, its pakistan assembled.
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    while reading this post , many members have misconceptions regarding PDM civic , its assembling or Quality Control.
    Pakistani assembled unit is not less than any other countrie's assembled unit in terms of quality.
