    Default Has the new CIVIC Flopped? Resale?

    aoa guyz,

    dont u think that considering one and a half month has passed since the launch of the all-new civic, the number of vehicles on the roads is too few?

    has it flopped in Pakistan?

    i heard from ppl that this car is bound to have a bad resale value in Pakistan and its gonna make u lose a greater amount of money at the time of selling than any other car in its class in Pakistan?

    Has the resale value picture started to emerge already?

    have your say?

    hello guyz,

    my views differ from yours

    u guyz are right that the new civic has been discussed here at PW a number of times but since enough time did not pass to actually present facts that would all be counted as SPECULATION

    what i am interested in here is some facts..... the picture that has appeared after the ONE MONTH DELIVERY TIME quoted by the dealers at the time of launch .....


    e.g.: "Has the resale value picture started to emerge already?"

    what I am trying to find out is that what we all speculated about the new civic, HOW MUCH OF THAT HAS COME TRUE?

    no offence

    peace

    regards

    I support the initiator of this post. It's a current topic and must go on.

    In my opinion, it is too early to say that new Civic has flopped. Please give it at least six months and then gather some stats if you can to reach any conclusions.

    But agree that I have seen only two new Civics, one on GT Road near Mandra and second on Embassy Road in the past one month.

    BTW: Has not yet seen any i-vtec city moving around.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    there is one more thing i wanna know?

    i was thinking that if the resale value of the new civic is so bad, then why not buy a slightly used one fron the market now or in a few days?

    that way the chances of losing money will be reduced

    what ya guyz think?

    i dont think its flopped coz dealers getting orders more than they expectations, in 2 to 3 months when delivery of cars would start in bulk then we will be able to see more cars,now also delivery time for new civic gone upto 2 to 4 months which is the proof civic is not flopped

    the car has been launched jsut a few months....so there is no sense in trying to determine whether it has been flopped or not....

    or i guess....most of the civic buyers are in the south of the city...do u also live there? lol
    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.

    East,west,north or south, car wont sell as much as anticipated, and that my friends is a bitter truth you have to swallow, a previously 10 lac rupee car is now for 13.5 Lacs, No matter you fix sona in it, it wont sell, as i said earlier its a item for shauqeen hazraat only now.
    Same is the story for Altis, 1.8 with ABS and everything wont sell for 12 lacs, the 1.3 with handle windows sells like hot cake with a good premium on it , even now when the market is flooded with imports !

    6 months time and we will be talking here with Facts collected from pama etc. to prove it.

    I still say throw a price tag of 11.99lacs on the base model and see the difference but these Honda people want the early Birds to loose 2 lacs more, they ll cut the price later, Not sure but they will have to, if not then Honda is history, like Nissan etc.

    No offence to anyone, but under the current scenario, new Civic is bound to fail, not only because its way too expensive for its class (& locally assembled) but in Pakistan due to fuel cost high powered sedans are failure, take the example of Altis and 1.6 Baleno. I am not sure about Altis, but Baleno 1.6's production was stopped within first year.

    Another reason which is definitely contributing to deteriorating the situation of new Civic is wide variety of imported cars.

    I guess, Honda people should have done their homework well before the launch of the Civic, it seems they are still in the delusion that they are in era of 3 years back.

    The value of all locally manufactured/assembled cars are depreciated due to imported cars. Look at the own on Corolla, once it used to be above 100K on XLI/GLI but now its under 50K and old Civics are selling like peanuts.

    Badaraja, nice pics man! was it the first car expo you attended?

    @sherdil, baleno was stopped, but wat did it do afterwards to the market??? came back man!! that car was in demand.

    as for the civic, it is way too early to call wat the market will be like, u must also remember Honda is a multinational company, they have whole departments working on marketing etc...and they know what will work and what wont. No profit maximising company would take a risk with a car, nor has Honda, they are smart they know what they made and they know the fuel situation and if they think this will work, FOR NOW i have to give it to them.

    Later on things may change but again, its too early a call.

    Sherdil...limited number of people have too much money in Pakistan....i mean..they are mad rich u know...they will buy it plus corporates/CEOs/businesses love this car cuz its a symbol thing....so i dont see its failure.

    you should invest in one you know.
