    some findings:

    civic ll not face problem due 2:

    1- the recent inflow of money in PK

    2- the cars r now investments here

    3- civic is not a honda like a White Elephant

    4- bank/financial support

    5- 2 hav something latest

    6- civic fans r civic's only

    7- the gap between civic's prtiuce & other cars will b supported by the banks if needed (this point is most imp[orttant these days which i hav heard for most of the timnes).

    no problem:

    on ground realities:

    i hav heard about many things from people

    that they ll buy & the diff of price ll b covered by many ways and for some this is no problem.

    I visited Honda showroom yesterday. My opinion is just a confused ones. I think the car is too dynamic and Radical for Pakistani Market. Price is a serious drawback but i talked to a manager

    These speakers looked cheap and oddly placed to me. They were more towards the corner and design pattern was just way old fashioned

    Sorry for missing the whole thing
    I was interrupted there
    The Manager said that price is kep that way as part of a strategy to induce people tobuy city and leave the civic as a more prestigious brand. It seems true to me. There are no plans to introduce a model in between the two cars. Maybe some time down the road they will.

    hmmm, @spectra what do you say to this... sunny, lancer and corolla all have basically same shapes from 1.3 base to 1.6 top model. Dont you think they offer more than this approach of honda where they create a separate class of ppl. Civic is definitely not a separate class unless you price is so awkwardly higher...

    Infact this class exist with camry and accord ... superior enough than their cheaper siblings? but civic no way!!!!

    Local assembled for 15 lacks,.... what a joke!

    Summary: it's a waste of money (it'll sell well in government departments - since it's all free for them, thanks to us tax payers)
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    DO NOT believe what the managers tell you.

    1) Toyota told me that will never bring the new Camry to Pakistan in the beginning of this year. They wanted me to buy the old one. They finally did.

    2) Honda dealers over here told me that they did not know if the new Civic would make it here. It finally did.

    3) The manager won't tell you that they are planning for a somewhat less expensive model. Otherwise noone will buy and wait for the price to drop.

    I GUARANTEE that they WILL come up with a less expensive model. Or perhaps, they will offer UG with leather for the same price.

    although i do doubt that local cars are not well done, i still believe this new civic will sell just fine. there are two reasons:

    1. a large buyer group in main city areas who want the new car as a matter of prestige. this group includes both new money owners plus corporations who have to upgrade their cars after 4-5 yrs anyway...good deals from leasing cos. will help also.

    2. limited supply of new cars..hence the own money

    3. regardless of re-sale, honda is still considered a prestigious and relatively reliable brand.

    so here you have a perfect demand-supply gap...more demand than supply..that will result in a firm price.

    and if you guys think civic is expensive....wait till the 07 corolla model comes up with a higher price tag...which will eventually drive others to move their prices up..

    consumer markets usually follow a trend...suzuki and mitsu. or nissan will never stay behind if prices go up.

    the lack of govt. intervention for the sake of customers, the lack of safety standards in the automobiles...the lack of control over own money...will ultimately make the car cos. sell easily...make a bigger profit.

    so lets not whine about the price....inflation already kills you in pakistan everyday.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    Nobody here comments about the inside room of new civic.
    My brother and cousine visited Honda city sales yesterday and their observations are.

    1)Not a big design change.
    2) Only interior got better but not practical.
    3) My brother 6 feet in height says that car is very much less in height and his head touched the roof, specially the rear seats head room is not practcal and one has to lower his head while sitting on rear seats.
    4) Rear seats are so designed that only two persons can sit easily. Three persons will fit uncomfortably.

    What you pakwheeler say about these remarks?
