I for one appreciate your courage to accept that you were at fault when you went ahead with this booking.
I dont comment alot anymore for this particular reason that level of tolerance and the right to reason was becoming an ego issue even though fazal bhai has been very cooperative.
I went to see the car myself today. And i dont mean to sprinkle salt over the naked wounds of many but I thank the Almighty that i didnt prebook a car that i hadnt even seen. MASHALLAH at the welding. Atlas Honda has proven that the car has indeed come from a welding denter painter shop from "Mandi (ganj in this case)".
People who had zero knowledge of even the Contract Act 1872 instantly became legal experts when some of us thought we had a strong legal case (yes even if i wasnt one who had prebooked this car, i was still supporting the motion) and tried to make it look as if we were the weaker party.
We are the consumer and regardless of what we are fed with that this is Pakistan and we are weak, if not harm them financially we can atleast make Atlas reposition their Qibla towards a more consumer friendly approach.
I was at Honda Avenue Gulberg Islamabad and i openly called out the sales guy and asked if is this mehran or civic pointing towards the welding on the doors? Hearing me the guests looking at the car came towards that direction and none of them, i swear none of them were pleased with what they saw.
And uncle was there with his family and he was trying to get access to the owner because he wanted to shift his booking from the 1.5T to the hard top but sales team were trying to convince him that he will have to wait alot for the hard top to arrive.
If the hardtop is late for arrival then why in the world are some people driving it in Lahore?!? Honda Atlas is a public limited company, competition commission of Pakistan can ROGER them big time for having dual consumer policy.
The rear and front lights are pretty sweet. But sitting inside gives you the real shocker. Has anyone seen that fake plastic support next to the back passenger seats? I mean just in case u have more than 3 people sitting in the back seats, one of them will be positioning himself on plastic instead of any small portion of seat cushion. -_-
Im sad as a pakistani consumer with how manipulative Honda Atlas has been but happy as somebody who had to change his car and spend his precious savings on a car worthy of giving him mental peace and satisfaction of a decent buy. Grande may not be a worthy opponent to Civic in many departments. But seeing that over 90% of the comments are showing some sort of genuine disappointment over Civic, im glad i waited.
The steering controls feel very cheap to say the least. But the steering size and the level of visibility ahead for the driver were good no doubt, from the drivers point of view.
LOL @ rear screen
The trunk is spacious. But over 20k for floor mats, sun visors and trunk tray?!?
A well designed car....ruined by Greed of Pakistani henchmen who were trusted by Honda Japan to carry forward their name when it came to quality and excellence.
Dono haath utha kar Honda Atlas ki taraf 🖑
To the people who booked this car, im not ur enemy, i am your brother and i pray and hope a miracle happens and when you get ur cars delivered, the fit and finish is somewhat acceptable and proves that this is indeed a 2.5million car or in case of 1.5t, a 3 million rupee car.
