    Default CITY or COROLLA ?

    Hey guys ! I wanted 2 kno if i shud buy a city VTEC steermatic or is Corolla GLi better coz i have heard that city will cause proplem afterwards such as :-

    1) A friend ov mine bought a brand new o meter 2005 city vario from HONDA dealership. He later converted it on CNG which caused his 1 year warranty to finish. 1 year later later the gear box ov da car started making some weird noises so he went 2 the HONDA service centre n they told him that it will cost him 1 lack rupees.


    2) Another friend ov mine bought a brand new 2007 city vario from a HONDA dealership.Later he faced a major problem, that when he pressed the acclerator it was not coming back at its original position but he got it fixed for free as his car was insured.

    He then faced another problem afterwards. It was a rainy day and his CITY was parked outside.He went out for a ride wid me in his car but discovered that water was leaking into the ceiling throught the top left corner ov his windscreen but got that fixed too becoz ov his insurance.

    funny thing is that for rolla the only justification ppl have is resale.

    If you are a car dealer or have a habbit of selling your car every now and then then go for Rolla. BTW buy an XLI for 933,000 and install all GLI's extra thngs for not more than 15,000 for which company charges 90,000!!!

    if you want technology, performance, economy and peace of mind then City is for U!!!

    I had an iDSI and did 30,000 without any single problem, and now i am a proud owner of a steermatic and enjoying every second of the ride!!!

    iDSI= For economy
    Steermatic= For ecomony and performance!!!

    BTW: New steermatic price that has been applicable for over 7 months is 972,000

    Corolla is rigid and quite un comforrtable for long routes specially for the back seaters....

    The middle dome of corolla is very high and is quite uncomfortable annoying..

    City is nice car but a sensitive 1 too....quite comfortable
    But breaks of both cars are almost useless...
    Im not intrested in cars....Im intrested in technolgy .

    Every penny spent of Steermatic is worth it.Most selling car in Lahore at the moment. 15'', 7 spoke Alloys ,low profile portnza tyres,optron meter.7speed manual and Auto CVT. Rear seat glove boxes. Noise insulations in Hood and boot.Pinch free fron windows.1.5 engine with VTEC.AC compressor with seperate oil circulation.And many other technical advantages over GLI.
    as far as resale , it is not a car for every one.
    You see a huge difference in performance after you have driven it about 5000km.The drive is more enjoyable than GLI. The price of 9,72 is too great for all this i paid 10,30 for it and have no regrets.

    Steermatic all the way if u dont want to use CNG. otherwise id suggest u to buy a JDM lancer or Corolla X rather than buying a corolla gli which has horrid brakes. otherwise the car's fine.
    JDM Toyota Premio 2008, JDM civic 2006 2.0L i-vtec, JDM corolla X 1.3L vvt-i.

    I'd say go for the city, i personally drive a 2007 iDSI and have done 7000 kms and have not faced a problem yet, have taken it between karachi and hyderabad countless times, its very reliable! and fuel economy is at its best.

    My cousin has a GLi, i didnt like its interior and its brakes like eveyone else knows is crap.

    Go for the City, you wont be dissapointed!

    Steermatic is definately better GLi especially if running on petrol. Better engine, better wheels, better tires, better audio, way better brakes, better transmission, better build quality, better seats, better comfort...whats the hold up?

    Steermatic is an aesome vehicle & it features a lot more than an ordinary 1.3 Gli which doesnt even have "real" tires.! So youll have to spend anothr 30k where that same money will be saved in the buying of GLi.

    Why are you thinking twice?- Simply go for the Honda, even a 1.3 Vario is better than the Gli. ..I hate Rolla, and I own one so I know it!
    What good is a Genius without the Human aspect?

    @omaqsood(sorry missed the thread)

    No brother havent ever driven a steermatic but have driven the 8th generation auto civic both on and w/o cng....its kinda hard to quantify(like ive seen ppl do in terms of %)but i would say the difference between the two(cng and non-cng) is almost the same as the difference between an auto and a manual one on petrol.Based on that experience i replied that if the conversion is proper then cng shouldnt be an issue.
    And yes i agree that a manual gear box would be more suited for cng conversion but unfortunately the 1.5L version of city which has a vtec under the hood comes standard only with an auto transmission and hence you dont have the option of manual here.
    And finally coming to the topic at hand,i believe and i may be wrong that the steermatic when compared in absolute terms will still do better on cng then GLi. Plus,auto tranny means chill and sakoon for the driver.
    The word politics is derived from the word poly meaning, many & the word ticks,meaning blood sucking parasites

    if u havta drive on cng,Gli is better.but u wud loose the spec nd more options in city.
    yes city on auto wud give u problems after 60,000kms....so buying gli for ur self is safe......
