Yup. you could be rite. I am aware of the lack of quality in our locally manufactured cars. My point however was that since the cars have been standing for quite some time and they have not been in use, i believe they must have developed some more defects and problems in them.
As for PDI.ahh well...i've had a very similar experience. When i went to collect my civic exi in march 06, one of the rear doors was not being closed properly. when i complained, i came across some most hilarious TECHNICAL REASONING i couldve imagined.
Their replies were like:
1- Sir car is standing on a slope so the door cant be closed properly.
2- Sir too much gas is being filled in the car's cabin so doors are'nt working properly.
3- Sir new doors take some time to adjust.
When i refused to accept any of these, they said, " WE WILL REPAIR/REPLACE IT IN YOUR FIRST 1000 km checkup".
