    Default Why most executives are provided Honda Cars

    I have noticed that generally all the executives are provided Honda Civic cars, specially in Islamabad. Although there are other cars in the 1600cc and up catergory i.e. Toyota Altis etc but still most companies prefer Honda.

    Similarly for all the tough jobs Toyota is selected for example Radio cabs, police etc.

    Any idea why?

    Govt prefer corollas because of cheap spare parts, more fuel efficient... there is only one govt's honda civic in quetta and that is owned by Chief justice balochistan.
    Ministers and other high grade officials are given prados corollas.... honda is only given in private sector.

    Or maybe government is on some terms with Toyota Indus, 90% of their vehicles are by Toyota such as Prado and Corolla, Civics are in minority even with ITP/Motorway Patrol.

    yea, and they have not come in terms with Honda because of a REALLY small range of vehicles. Secondly, I find Pakistani Toyota Vehicles to be more reliable than the Pakistani Honda Cars. No, I'm not talking about running it on a bumpy road, I'm talking in general.

    honda civics dont have anything to do with STATUS SYMBOL. it is just that the mom dad genre of our nation gets a key to a honda and start saying that it,s the best and depicts status. anyway my point is that corollas and civics both are made to haul paeople from one place to another. a lot of hondas were sold recently in pakistan because you have to wait a year to get an xli and 24 hour to get a civic (specially on lease) and as a vehicle is required as a priority so people ultimately compromise on a civic. The cars to be compared should be accords or a camry not a civic or a corolla. and i beleive camry offers more than an always breakin accord.

    secondally status has nothin to do with a model of a car. even the grand cabin and lexus are used as offroading taxis in the wholw wide world. tht doesnt rate them as a third class car. a merc is the most widely used Taxi . even in dubai u can find rolls royce on the hire card in many hotels.and lastly the cars used by police . cabbies etc are no doubt the best of the best.

    civic is a wonderful car. it has its own complexity and many prefer buying it just for that sake.
    there is a note on my back that says, "KICK ME HARD!"

    lol there's no such thing lyk contract. normally its upto the officer which car he'll lyk to own and also it depends upon the budget too.as the officers r old ppl they prefer corolla..and there's no other car lyk prado so it has no competetor.

    Most executives are provided Honda Cars because they are not executives. A real executive would not be seen in anything less than a 5-Series that would be his own by the way. Moreover, internationally S Class has been the de-facto.

    i would rather put them in slightly out of market cars of Pakistan.
    although Optra is way better then local assembled honda's. but then even a lancer is very refined compared to our local assembled junk
