    Default Chevrolet JOY.. a failure???

    On the 6th of March 2006, i went to Chevrolet City Motors to inquire about Chevy JOY, at that time i was looking to buy a new vehicle. According to my visit then, the delivery time was 10 days, there was 'no' own on the car while the price was 5.85lac. They took my contact number and since that day i am continuously receiving calls from them, as if they are begging to us 'sir please khareed lain'...

    After 1 week they called me that the delivery time is now 3 days only and there isnt any own on the vehicle.. please visit and see... i said i will and didnt went.

    After 2 weeks they called me that FF CNG has been introduced and the price is 6.33lac... please come and see...

    After 3 weeks they called me that 'sir a new color has been introduced, its a golden beige color, aa ke dekhain garee bhot achee lag rahee hay is color main'...

    After 4 weeks they called me 'sir kia socha aap nay???' i said im still confused about its spares and maintenance cost, he said the maintenance would cost you the same as santro...

    Now yesterday they called me that sir the fully loaded FF CNG JOY is now 5.99lac instead of 6.33...... a 34 thousand descend in the price... please come and see

    Its the only company which is begging to sell its product... i dont know why people arent buying it.. personally i think its a bit overpriced but keeping in mind that people pay 6lac to buy a cuore, why dont people go for JOY??? as compared 600 QQs have been sold already..

    opinions required....

    Here is the thread about new spark

    I think Spark is going to be 800cc (yet to visit showroom for details so not sure). Price of spark is quite high at the moment. 759k for M/T and 855k for A/T (I've confirmed prices from showroom).

    ^ you need to understand the import duties and other taxes on car being imported as CBU. Its not about engine size.

    I don't need to tell anyone. I've just mentioned the reasons here. Every curious soul will figure out the reason of price difference itself.

    who are the decision makers at chevrolet?
    At least I'm not.

    what n old thread of mine reminds me of the old times and im amazed that its still alive.. my way of telling the story could have been better i admit. however to summarize it, the reason of annoyance was the way of salesmanship at chevy, despite the fact that the car is better than other locally available craps, their way of selling remind you of a 'waist band wala' who comes across you while you are shopping, you ask the price, he tells u the price, u say OK n move on, and then he calls u sir how much will u pay then "acha baat to sunain.." and then "acha 30 kum de deejiay ga"... if only they improve their marketing and salesmanship & ofcourse their after sale service then i think they would get much better results.. i hope wiqar sb. is going to agree

    as far as new spark is concerned, i was really disappointed to see the price but then every other car is selling at insane prices these days. so who to blame?

    I don’t think so Joy is going to be discontinued after the launch of Spark.

    Reason 1: Spark needs lot of time to make its own market.
    Reason 2: Spark is 800cc and it will be tough for buyers to pay more money for it. I believe they will prefer 1000cc joy which has almost all the same features.
    Reason 3: Joy is currently the best selling vehicle for Chevrolet in Pakistan and they can not sell this cash cow.

    I think after launching an over-priced Spark, Joy will get more fame and will attract more customers. So, I don’t think so Joy will be discontinued at least in coming 3-4 years.

    Spark is priced higher for an 800cc vehicle because it is totally imported and Chevrolet Pakistan introduced it for those growing number of customers who have purchased or trying to purchase Toyota Vitz and other imported rides within that price. They want people to buy a brand new imported Spark instead of a refurbished Vitz. Although I have just purchased a new Joy but still I think that Spark is not going to attract many customers. You will hear people praising it but most of them will not be willing to purchase it. If it could be a 1000cc car, then it may be worth taking for it.

    Hello all,

    Through this forum, I want to share all car buyers that Spark is a wonderful car but still it has one BIG problem.

    I read a letter posted by Nexus motors to Sialkot Chevrolet Motors detailing about the launch of Spark. Nexus clearly mentioned in this letter that Spark’s engine is made for Petrol only and that they do not recommend it to be used on CNG.

    So keep this point in mind if you are planning to purchase Spark. If somebody wants to use it on Petrol for ever, then GO for it…(Y)

    what i assume is that its just the launch model (spark) which is expensive (because its an import)... remember Jap Liana in 2005??? then when Liana's started assembling here the price was drastically dropped... lets wait to see if chevy plans to assemble the spark here

    ^Jap Liana is still for 12.75 lakhs.

    I had similar experience with Sherwani Motors when I went for test drive of their Mistubishi Lancer. At that time they were like "we only have stock for 4-5 days left, you have to pay own money of 30K on black, 20K on silver and 15K on white colors". I said all other cars were readily available without own, he replied: "then u will have to wait for our next shipment 4 months ahead, and have to pay full cash in advance".
    I went out of the showroom and decided at that moment to buy a Liana (I had test drived both and there wasn't much difference to me). But since that day onwards I was receiving 3-4 calls daily from that salesperson, for almost a month.
    I think it also has to do with commission, ie. the salesperson must be getting an amount of money for each sale.

    As far as Joy/Spark is concerned, the Americans have tried hard to gain share in the Japanese market by launching small cars over there (for the last 15-20 years), but their small cars simply don't sell.
