Nice Car

Chevrolet Joy 1.0

Posted by syedszeeshan on Apr 26, 2012

When my cousin bought it, i thought it was a bad decision but later I found it good. For Karachi traffic, you need small car and this fits the requirement.

They are re-launching in June or July 2012.
The price is really attractive, I hope it will remain the same.

I bought my chevrolet exclusive in 2005. Its the imported version with 800 cc engine.

To start with it is the best compact car around by a huge margin. Vitz comes in a different category and with a different price so cannot compare Vitz. Vitz is a better car than Chevrolet Joy or exclusive in my opinion.

Coming back to the car.

In last 5 years the only part that was replaced was reverse switch. Reverse light stopped working. Other than that the car is absolutely trouble free Mashallah.

Never been to mechanic, no unusual sounds, no cheap quality material used.

I love its fuel economy. It gives me between 18-21 km / liter on long routes and within city it gives an average of 13-14 km / liter. All this with ac and without extra effort to keep the fuel expense down by using a light foot etc. I don't have cng in it but I have seen trouble free exclusive / joy with cng. But who needs a cng when the avg is so damn good.

Its a safe car as compared to its competitors. It has the usual seat belts, plus it has collapsable steering wheel in case of impact with the steering during accident. The side doors have bars to give added protection in case of an impact.
It lacks ABS and airbags which is a disadvantage.

Front seats are pretty comfortable and a person of my height 6ft can easily and freely move around inside the car. Even the passengers at the back are seated comfortably something which is missing in santro, mehran and even swift.

The car is not built for performance but for its 800cc engine its pretty fast and if driven within limits it has good road grip. The height of the car is not great which in turns hits speed breakers or car breakers in our case, but height is kept low intentionally to keep a good road grip. Overall I can say that it can easily beat any car in its category with performance on stock engine.

Its a shame that the car couldn't make a place in the market and its discontinued now and a newer model is launched which is SPARK. Currently spark is imported and with high duties its not value for money in my humble opinion.
You can find a decent chevrolet joy in around 400k which is good value for money and overall I feel that its a car to keep. I believe my car can run trouble free for another 5 years or so.

This is the one of the best cars in Pakistan specially in small cars .. price is brilliant and comfort is great. one can prefer it on mehran, alto, cultus... the drawback of this car is that its spare parts are expensive and it does not perform well on cng.. otherwise it has the comfort like toyota

Chevrolet Joy is a good balanced, roomy and a bit luxurious car when compared to Alto and coure. It has MPI engine that is better than both coure and alto engine. It has good suspension. It has power windows and power steering functions. Not found in coure and alto. The drive is pretty smooth.

However , there some negatives as well. Its not as popular as coure or Alto. It resale value is not good either. Maintenance is quite expensive compared to coure and alto. Maintenance points are also limited across the country.

However , buying this car is worth the money spent.
