1. I can wait
yes u the man ... do not buy the car till it is for lets say 8 to 11 lacs
bhai jaan .... come on! you expect me to believe that you only wanted the ivtec engine,new shape and only abs with ba? yaar they have not even given 4 wheel disc
brakes ... or even a total abs system with ebd and ba! front discs have no abs and the rear drums have abs and ba. ebd cannot be seen but ok they dropped it. and on the
old features, you cant say the were useless and hence forgotten. you always keep the old features and upgrade new ones or build a newer idea to replace them. for
example a 4 wheel disc brakes with ebd,abs and ba would have been a change ... but as its not offered anywhere i wont comment on it. the rear cupholders and stoplamp
were necessary. also the other small stripped features mentioned earlier.
thanks again...get me support. i am suggesting a gtg here in khi for a demo against all cars and prices
yaar if you drive often and know how the streets are ... i have personally been a witness to many stupid accidents in which seatbelts and airbags have helped
minimise injury. safe driving and safety features are necessary for all, even the people who care about nothing and drive without it. people dont even indicate when
turning but i wont get into that.
and the suggestion of civic is for all people who are investing 13 lacs in this car to update their budget and get the civic for all features and goodies !
old corolla had good features in it. and in 13.1 lacs the 40k for gli gives it an edge. ok as for old city features to old car. the old corolla evolved and realised its
mistakes and gave us those with better features and points like 4 wheel upgraded brakes with abs and better tyres,stereo,etc. xli never had power windows or side view
mirrors. non the less the old city to new only gave engine and brakes with abs and ba. what about the old features?? vanished ??? then what to do??? buy the car ... i think NOT!
old cars had price to features and hence city killed corolla in all aspects like price and features. city had a 50k lesser price edge. now the increased 50k edge is
ripping features and not that attractive leaving the engine and brakes aside (shape also).
yes the brakes in the xli,gli,se saloon,2.0d all sucked without abs but better tyres added security. cant blame general tyres there
and yes the part of the brakes is not my problem but honda atlas's. i did not tell them to give front disc with no abs and rear drum with abs, and add a non ebd brake assist. i still am amazed there as to how this is possible! LOL
- i was saying that in march to april and onwards people will have their cars and the city 09 will be on the roads. then we can ultimately see the results and that
will be when no one here will care if they spend 13 lacs for any car. what i mean is no one will care what we say on the car. it will be there as some fans will blindly
get what they consider an upgrade for the sake of it. people will buy as there is no other choice but this model. in the older days we had engines or features to chose models, now we are gifted cwap!
all i want is awareness and that we all get what we pay for and not forget the old good features ! :S
again brother its not personal ... i am just depressed that we did not get what we should have and it changed my opinion on this car as it changed many other loyal
fans views ... hence peace out!
local city 2009 only will get bad names as it is not offering what others are...in the same price-range. (agreed on your views)
man that is due to the delay in shipping but non the less i hope it stays that way so they reduce the price and add features!
man spread the word and awaken the people! keep up the good work!
smart thinking bro...good work, and spread the word! lol at your reply and agreed on it totally (Y)
thanks for sending the word to the people up in atlas who pulled an indus on us!
tell them to keep their standard up man, honda and city rocked and this launch has disappointed many fans as the idsi killed many!
hope they do change but sorry to say we will have to wait for 3-4 more years for that facelift
as no one will re launch as it is not cost efficient.
congrats on your ride and drive safe. i only would say that that is your car and even if you intend to keep it or whatever,you should have waited for the 'running'
or initial testing period for things to get into perspective. the 130km/h run and brake testing neglects that but no offence, your car your rules. as for the brakes and all the stock 175/65/r15 are in my opinion not that stable and suitable i our region...but your testing proves otherwise.
man you are 24 years old and saying this ?? engine does not work on petrol without spark plugs and you are asking this...haan the plugs are not readily available but of course they are in the car and needed.
