after going through all the pages and reading all the replies, i have come to know there is not a much difference of quality in City 09 and Toyota 1.3 variants. cars are overpriced mainly due to taxation and recent recession which badly hit Pakistan. it is quite understood that Government implies taxes in recession just to stabilize economy but what has happened to the quality of Honda and Toyota products i mean the total cost of a car includes both Factory ex price and GST......in other words customer is paying both the tax and cost of car then why Toyota and Honda have decreased the quality.......aren't they getting the cost of expensive parts being paid by the customer????
i recently have sold out my city 09 mainly due to the quality issues like stiff suspension, knocking of engine in first gear specially when AC is on, third class plastic used for dash board and doors inside panels, ABS isn't very effective, no quite cabin, lots of engine sounds are heard inside the cabin while driving, some people have ECU programming problems in first and second gear. also, there are some basic accessories missing like no high mounted rear stop lamp, no arm rest for the driver and no light in the trunk........lolz what has happened to Honda now?
i was thinking to buy Gli after selling my city 09 out but now i think i would have to sell it as well after sometime due to more or less same issues........what we are gonna do with that......which local assembled 1.3 car we could buy now......all are craps to me.........
resultant to all that, i am going for 2006 Corolla X or Premio G grade....
dont mind as i am not a toyota owner these days (owned previous models though) and replied on your thread with ma view but please bear with it.
