    Default Chevrolet Pakistan

    i hope its not a repost

    Guys plz give ur opinions about the current Chevrolet's status is pakistan, regarding

    personal experiance (like ride, comfort, safety etc so is it a must go go or a so so product)
    compare with other products
    prices

    on the following models
    Joy (success/failure)... current/future perspective
    Aveo (success/failure)... current/future perspective
    Optra (success/failure)... current/future perspective

    well do give comments and also update us about any new upcoming brands coming to pakistan like Ford, citroen, vauxhal, skoda or any new products within the existing brands like honda, toyota etc.

    joy is selling below average
    aveo is selling poorly
    optra( i had high hope frm this car)but its again a hugee flop

    i personally dnt see any betterment reasons are
    THEY ARE HIGHLY OVER PRICED
    i admit honda n toyota are over priced but they hav a name n repute in pakistan frm past soo many decades n they are japanese brand name n chevrolet is an american brand bt its assembled in korea (people dnt digust this too)
    spare parts are nt available in town n villages
    chevrolet shud hav introduced there cars at low prices n slowly n gradually shud hav increased it
    thts the reason optras new model is released world wide bt no proper release here
    i dnt think there is a single person who will prefer optra over corolla,civic,city,lancer reason is they hav history on there back

    i dnt see any prosperuos future ahead for chevrolet in pakistan

    joy is a failure
    but in case optra it is a bit overpriced if the company consider to reprice and work on marketing the car will be a success

    Joy:
    I dont think joy is a flop. Its making its market gradually. I've driven it and its a masterpiece. u go to chevrolet display center at pc and ask the salesman there to have a test drive. they hve qualified staff there and i m impressed.

    Optra:
    yaar in islamabad every 5th car is optra. what do u expect a brand who has captured this share in this short period. One who knows Chevrolet is clearly aware of its quality.

    Chevys are not expensive. U get a joy CNG at Rs.569,000 and its competitors Santro (high end)does cost 689,000 and Cultus at 682,000. Is joy still expensive.

    Dont compare corolla with optra. if u see new corolla is being sold at some toyota showroom at 17,50,000. I've heard they are used but not confirmed yet. If u take optra, u take original GM parts, but in case of other brands, enjoy CHINA

    salam Friends,I have a Chevrolet Joy for last 14 months and I am absolutely satisfied by this car.This is a stunning driving experience in its class.Even u can compare it with Toyota XLI.tHOUGH IT IS A 1000CC but has a classic touch and u can easily feel its interior a roomy and comfortable.Its mileage is superb.I have checked it 24KM/K on CNG.One can get its genuine parts on a reasonable price.In my opinion there is is no comparison of Joy with other 1000CC cars available in the market like Santro,Cultus and Alto.They are too expansive when one compare price with features.While Joy has some good features in a reasonal and competitive price.I hope it will occupy the market in near future because we Pakistanies are diverting our intentions from conventional brands gradually.Toyota,Suzuki etc are selling their cars on a very high price but giving a cheap quality.They are looting the people.

    cheverlot acquired Daweoo motors a few years back and all these cars are marketed with "Cheverlot" logo. I am personally using the "Cheverlot Exclusive" which is Korean import and model is 2004. It is 800cc car and has following features:

    1. Good Q/C since it is an import

    2. 800cc EFI engine, superb pickup, I am sure it can take on a Cultus as well since it toally blasts Mehran and Alto VXR

    3. Power windows (front only) and power steering

    4. 5 forward

    5. Excellent A/C, i must say better than my other ride, Steermatic

    Not sure about the joy coz its the same pak assembled variant with 1000cc engine. I am sure the failure reason is:

    1. People's mindset to only go for Zuki, Honda and Toyota
    2. Price it too high for Cheverlot since it has hard time to compete with the main players
    Hail to the King Baeeeebay!!!!
