Salams. As some of you may already know, I'm in the look out for a new roadster since my Altis 2011 recently got lifted from my garage, as part of the fresh outbreak of the seemingly indestructible car theft virus. https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/electrical-wiring-battery-lights/185783-tracker-false-sense-security
I have quite a few options available before me, but one thing is for sure, and read my lips: "NO MORE TOYOTA!
I have kind of made it a resolution to myself that I'll not purchase any more IMC vehicle, till at least this fleecing manufacturer does not make it's cars less hotcakes for thieves, in the absence of an immobilizer and very easy forging of the chassis details placed below the front seats. I've come to learn sadly, that these models (2009-2011), when stealth, are traded at almost original, used price with new docs!!!
Anyhow, to get to the point, I'm seriously considering a fully loaded Honda Civic, 2012 Oriel, Prosmatic, yet with the present Atlas manufacture standstill going on, prices and premiums of Civics have gone up quite to the steeper side and the wait also is kind of unbearable, once they start rolling out their cars this month, hopefully.
I came across some ads here for the Hybrid models, fresh import, and would like and appreciate our esteemed members here to kindly comment on the pro's and con's of these??
I know, I'm sacrificing the sunroof with these models, yet found the Hybrid engine, multimedia steering controls and cruise control a fair package in contrast, leave alone the reasonable prices, as if compared to the local price-jack these days (23 Lakhs for on spot delivery)
Kindly shed some light on these models, with specifics on below:
1) What is the actual mileage of these cars, since the importers proclaim above 30kms/per ltr?
2) Is the hybrid engine function serviceable here in Pakistan, in case of any malfunction?? Do we have the people to deal with these engines?
3) Does this car have the some torque/output as the genuine petrol only model?
4) Does it have the same output/power on electric charge, as when on petrol?
5) Is the imported color range of paints available here, in case of any minor/major bodywork required?
Some of the options around:
