    i think its the dollar rate and insane prices of the facelift model. it was below 10 lac for the 1.3 version and they were even giving the GL version for 8.7 lac and then the same shape with just the facelift cost you 16 lac plus. however i do like the facelift over the pre facelifted lancer

    infact M/T for 1699000/- & GLX A/T for 1769000/-

    yea...assuming their expensive parts and low resale people rule it out
    had been till 14,it would be the best car among the competitors here ..still its quality is way beter than the new honda and toyota

    its also a factor that most of the out of market brands are dumping old lot here rather than offering an up to date lineup. nissan sunny for instance, offering the same old shape which has changed everywhere else but still offered here. Lancer is no more the one like our market, overseas it has been changed long ago, still we get an old shape lancer at a price as high as a new civic or altis. same goes with proton and other competitors.. if u have to gain popularity, offer something new at a competitive price & see the positive result!

    -the reasons i noe off..

    -Coils issue same as Baleno nd Liana (1 coil for 2 Cylinders) ( due to which we Pakistanis claim the engine to be flop)

    -secondly there were rumors of it not being an actual Efi engine ( some sorta 2 number kaam, correct me if im wrong)

    -some complains of engine sucking water in nd dying.

    -Dewan Farooques marketing.

    -Expensive spares, ( but the drive of this Lancer nd Jap Sunny are jst amazing once u drive em u dun wanna sit in Civics nd rollas.)

    PS: Lancers have always been popular for being more expensive if bot part by part, but it caters a market of people who love driving nd enjoy their drive.

    id like to add is that, theres no service provided to people and infact after selling there brands they wind up there busineses nd go.

    Hyundai only had one dealership all over Karachi.

    even Mitsubishi

    even BMW
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    @ansari ...right bro,yes if mitsubishi start giving their top line model here in pakistan at the very same rate,it would definitly attract buyers ...
    @chinyoti....no doubt,their ride is unlike rollas n hondas
    they are TRUE EFI...never heard of any rumors btw i have around 14 in family ..and none of them ever ever gave any problem of any sort ..80ks to 150ks driven even i have 80k driven ..bt not even a single extra noise
    engine are very nice ...its on petrol though

    one thing i always think when im driving it,why dont they provide dual airbags,abs+ebd,multifunction steering ..i mean the top end model should have these basic ambiguities

    as for sunny...i got no experience at all,can you tel me about its maintinance,consumption,options,price ..may be il buy it,although still ma minds stuck on lancer ..um planin for a lancer GLX, in black with sunroof on petrol ..isb reg

    lols lets make it Dewan Group.

    @double trouble, ive heard sunny has a air bag standard, but as now its pakassembled who noes.

    PS: the air bag is standard in Pakassembled model.

    ^ and ya there were rumors that Lancers being sold were of older models which have been standing on ports for a long long tym dats y low prices were also offered.


    nd rumors of new shape being launched were also there but the Dewan group got crashed. or bank crupt

    i jusr recently got to drive the 1.6 version auto without cng. and the things i noticed is

    1) shape is extremely boring.....
    2) very slow car...... pick is just like a 1.3
    3) eats a lot of fuel
    4) parts damnexpensive.

    however the good things were
    1) factory speakers were giving out bass like no tomorrow
    2) nice comfortable ride
    3) gear shifting was with 0 jerk... and i really mean 0 jerk!
    Nikon D3S , Nikon D800 , 24-70 f2.8 + 70-200 F2.8 VR II + 50 1.8D + SB-900 + SB600
    I am ready for any situation!!

    Lancer is in no way a crap car it was subject to crap marketing and sales.

    oops i got these prices from their website... but our auto websites are the last thing updated on earth. thanks for the correction

    still i believe 13 lac is way too much money for an older shape which has been replaced abroad long ago

    Good points

    1. Lancer has less body roll
    2. better shock absorbing capability
    3. low cabin noise
    4. low rattling noise from body
    5. more stable at high speeds
    6. Very responsive steering
    7. better built quality overall
    8. Parts of engine and from suspension very durable lasts more then 5-10yrs depanding upon abuse and use


    bad points

    1. No cheap spares
    2. No aftermarket add ons
    3. No resale
    4. No Technical knowledge of mechanics in local market
    5. No marketing
    6. No Riced up lancers in pak so ppl cud get a desire to buy it lol
    7. No Fuel efficiency compared to other 1.3 models from other manufactures

    Im a mitsu fan but when it comes to the bad points its a big turn off
    i wish there was a car with Honda Engine with Mitsu Durability in Body & Suspension and Parts easily Available like Corolla and resale like Suzuki......
    hahahahahah
