    Default My new Civic

    Finally, I made my mind and bought new civic. I was planing to purchase VTI Oriel, but when today I talked to Honda City Sales (Lahore), they said it will take 6 months for Oriels delivery & OWN money is 150,000 Rs/-
    Both the conditions were awful.
    I asked for the VTI, and it had delivery peried of 1-2 months. I got impressed, then mentioned if you want to buy this car in stock then the own money is 25,000. And this was indeed a great deal for me instead of waiting 2 months for my car.

    I paid the own, and took the car home

    This car defenately worth it. The super speedo. Fuel Tank filled in 3,500 Rs. I spent my day driving this new baby. Driven 200 KM in a single day, now the fuel tank is half.

    About the ASH Trays which people were complaining about. Please note this Civic have got the HUGE ash tray/basket I've ever seen in any car. Current I can't provide the pics of that due to dark. Will post it tomorrow.

    Car Price
    factory Price: 13,30500
    Registration: 33,000
    Insurance: 53,000
    Own Money: 25,000
    Actual Price: 14,41500

    Took a few shots in night time using flash Camera Mobile. I'll be posting some detailed pix tomorrow.

    I am quiet impressed and rather tempted to read all the correspondence. I had plan to buy his car but due to delay in its launching, I settled for manual altis 1.8 early this year in January.

    However after reading your reviews I am once again inclined to sell my altis and buy this car. Before I do that can u please comment on the below points for my understanding and knowledge:

    a) the pickup of this model compared to previous Vti and Altis (if u may have driven these cars)

    b) the road grip and cornering. Is it sporty like previous Vti?

    c) The engine noise at high rpms compared to previous Vti

    d) The last but not least, the road clearance. It appears to be quiet low compared to the previous civic and its one of my concerns given the current crappy road conditions of Karachi. Please advise if its easy to drive this car around town including on bumpy roads and over speed breakers.

    Think u could get cheaper rims.
    But the more expensive , the better!

    @mazher
    The civic is low (new & old model) because of the flat floor in the back.

    @mazher,,, I can't give you much good answers, because I have only taken test drive of VTI 2004 for 15 minutes months ago.

    A). No doubt its faster in pick than Altis & old Civic.
    B). Its much more sporty than old VTI. I love its steering wheel. Road Grip is good, I'm on stock tyres currently and have no complaints about road grip.
    C). Can't answer that. Don't remember the sound of VTI which i drove for 15 mins.
    D). Its lower, More than 3 persons and you should be much carefull on bad speed breakers. Rolla takes the lead in road clearance.

    @doc,,, you mean, I can get well good rims in 50K ?

    @Nabs:

    I asked you this before, but didn't get a reply. Could you please comment on the comfort of this car? Is the suspension any softer than the older VTi? Does it jump up and down with a non-dampable excitation on certain bumpy roads just like the older VTi (2001-2005)?
