Well this is not at all a 'Honda Civic fan club' thread so everyone has a right to express the views whether be a Corolla fan or a Vezel fan. Before anyone starts bashing me let me clear that I am a Honda Fanatic too and we shouldn't make it a corolla vs civic or civic vs others debate and heat up the thread. Where I live local dealer have almost provided Honda cars from all regions (Honda Japan, Honda NA, Honda Thailand, and Honda China) but trust me none of them have quality issues. My family has owned Honda cars from Japan and NA, trust me there was hardly a difference in quality. You know what, the Accord from NA and China are eqaully good in terms of quality but compare the Pakistani Civic (WE DO HAVE A 9th GENERATION CIVIC FROM ATLAS AND ARE GOING TO UPGARDE IT TO 10th GENERATION CIVIC, so I dont fall in a 'chaska' party or corolla fan category) But seriously 3 million for this? They couldnt even give us the led lights, the navigation and our local guys can stitch leather seats that too with a better material than the seats given by Honda Atlas) The welding quality and Allah knows what they hide under the plastics and sheets are the basic quality issues, Honda Atlas has seriously compromised on basic attention to details. This is 2016. Almost everyone buying Civic use mobile phones which charge by usb cables and they forgot to give us the usb slot under the navigation unit so what is the cable management for?
Any guys there is a lower duty on 1500cc engine category as compared to 1800cc engine category so the extra cost is for those leather seats and crappy navigation?
Its the consumers who give the companies their profits and business
The reason Honda went with a quick facelift of 9th gen Civic in North America was them losing their buyers and their sales dropping down but Honda Atlas knows whatever they offer we Pakistanis will accept it.
I am getting a Civic X and trust me I wasn't offended by any of the criticism.
It's the same Honda Atlas who have slapped the Honda City on our faces which has been discontinued all over the world long ago. They know they don't have to worry because they are earning profits. Its the same Honda Atlas who instead of giving us the better Honda Vezel slapped us with an expensive Honda HRV.
And yes its not only Honda Atlas doing it, Pak Suzuki is the pioneer, they bring something and then completely froget about it, they are still selling us that old swift, if they kept on giving us newer better versions of swift it surely would have halted imports of Toyota Vitz. They are still selling us that Mehran which was same even before most of us were born or were kids. They still think Suzuki cultus is a better thing than Vitz or any other imported car.
Indus Motors kept selling us corollas without immoblizers (until recently) when everywhere in the world immoblizer was becoming a standard feature.
We pay for cars, they don't gift us so we should have the right to demand better quality! They can only justify the prices if they don't compromise on standards and assure us the global quality.
I strongly suggest all manufacturing companies should clealry mention the taxes we pay on the car and the price they take for the car so we get to know whether their stripping down of options was justified or not.
@fazalwahab11375 bhai keep it up. We deserve better cars.
