I have been keeping both Civics and Corollas since the start of manufacturing, both are working fine.
These cars were not brand new btw!
Sir that can be the sole reason, no one sells a good Honda and it is costly to keep good maintenance of Hondas, because of expensive parts.
Sir Corolla sales figures are high because of low cost of parts and that again increase its resale, and that is how the Cycle goes, in reality Accord is much superior in built quality, technology and comfort/handling but the resale and sales figure are nothing because maintenance and parts are expensive due to superior technology.
In reality all these technologies are not meant to capitalize on our broken roads and dusty/humid environment, which are only suitable for a 4 X 4
If we start to use the torsion beam in Civic and Accord and if CL7/CL9 Accords suspensions and power steering would be interchangeable with a CA4 (1985) Accord, it would be more famous in Pakistan.
My brother is running an EXI 2005 on rent, 148K km done, using Shell HX3 (laal daba) and guard filters, stock wheel covers with general XP2000 tires and stock seat cover and Head Unit, still the car is working fine.
