    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.

    That is what the Toyota Rahim Yar Khan dealership is saying at least delaying my friends Altis 1.6 by 3-months.

    ON money for 1.6 varies, but is around 100-130K if a 0 meter car is available in ready stock.

    I was lucky that I got a 0 meter Altis 1.6 A/T in a week as it was readily available at a showroom and I dealt with the car owner directly, which infuriated the dealership, but I avoided paying the ON and got the car.

    Can't really say only know that booked late December received early February Grande. No extra payments of any sort.

    Yes, at least in the RYK showroom the sales chart bulletin board showed that other models outsold Grande 20/1 in some cases, the day I got delivery a total of 22 cars were to be delivered out which only mine was a Grande.

    Gli XLi is the bread and butter 1.6 and 1.8 are few and far between in South Punjab specially.

    Toyota Corolla To Get A Lot Of New Options In Pakistan, Starting From May - PakWheels Blog

    What do you think? Even if half of the things said in the blog are true its a good thing, but the existing Grande customers like my self will feel bad about it, hope there is a retro fit option.

    Agree with you completely. Grande owners have been short changed. As far as I know most things could be added on at a later stage but not sure about immobiliser that is added at factory stage and can't be added after. Rest Allah hu alim
