    Exclamation Delays in Indus Corolla Deliveries: Production Issues & Rumors

    I recently purchased a Grande because it seemed ridiculous to pay own (or whatever) on an Altis 1.6 or wait for 3-4 months, so I thought I had to pay extra any how so why not go for the best and I guess it was a good decision.

    However, a friend of mine booked an Altis 1.6 about the same time I did last Oct in the hope of getting delivery in Feb, 2016. Now he has been informed by the dealer that Indus has suffered some production issues and all orders have been cancelled and he will be receiving his car after a delay of another 3-4 months, up-side he says is that there will be COSMETIC CHANGES probably to counter the new CIVIC.

    Has anyone else encountered such an argument from the dealers? I'm sure other pakwheelers must be in a similar situation too, we are looking for answers, please.

    Check with Toyota direct as they should be delivering on stated time month. I had March delivery but received one month earlier even though I booked late Dec 2015 for grande

    @hungama007 Grande is not a problem, I got mine within a month, it is the rest of the models, and contacting Toyota is hopeless, they write you a lovely email and nothing really happens, its the dealers who are doing insider dealing.

    When I upgraded from 1.6 to Grande to save time and money, the dealers were themselves unsure what to do. This caused a 2-week delay because as per Toyota policy for an upgrade the old order gets cancelled the money takes a scenic route through the banks and then another order no. is issued, talk about modern business.

    My friend, what you have observed is true. I booked an Altis 1.6 last year and got it within 24 days. A few weeks ago, while collecting the documents of my car, the dealer told me the very same Altis 1.6 was available on 4-5 month booking then, same as GLI Manual, where as 1.8 variants were available within one month. If there were production issues, IMC should have also dragged delivery period of 1.8 variants as well, which isn't the case. So, to me, it seems a ploy to sell as much 1.8 variants as possible before the launch of Civic X, Just my two cents.

    It just means that the demand for 1.6 is higher than 1.8

    That is also possible sir but I don't get one thing: Why are potential customers, who are given PBO for a specific month against 1.3 and 1.6 variants are being rung up by dealerships later, stating that their tentative delivery periods have been dragged further by 1-2 months, because of some unknown production issues, while for 1.8 variants, they are giving delivery within one month as committed? Don't they anticipate the demand-supply situation before issuing PBO for 1.3 and 1.6 variants? Many respected members have received such calls from IMC.

    A relative booked 1.3 GLi AT on 17 Feb he got sms from Toyota that the vehicle will be delivered in April. Even if it comes on the last date of the month then it is total 2.5 month wait at max.

    I believe the reason Indus can afford to play with the 1.3 and 1.6 is because City sales are completely shot to hell, which may also mean that we cannot expect the City in 2016 even.

    So seems like Indus has more than ample time to introduce a face lift, capture any remnants of deluded customers waiting on the new Civic and pretty much do what ever the hell it feels like in 2016, will Honda ever recover from this ??

    Rumour is that they are making certain cosmetic changes and maybe introducing an immobilizer in Grande version only hence the delivery times have been pushed.

    Rumours just nothing else. People have been saying this for over a year now.

    probably insider dealings by the dealerships...they are giving the cars to people who are paying own...also can be a tactic to push the buyer to pay own to get the vehicle early...the face lift is the most obnoxious reason they have given since such facelifts apply to bookings after the official release not for older booking where only the delivery is pending.
    Whenever a bird shits on my car, I eat a plate of scrambled eggs on my front porch just to let them know what I'm capable of...
