  • Not while ago we saw civic users complaining about steering issues and honda was charging them fortune to fix something that was sold faulty. They must be real happy doing business in Pakistan on their own terms.

  • I am a Honda user since 1984, when first time Honda introduced in Pakistan. I bought Honda city steermatic in 2015, since then I have a very bad experience of fuel pump. It’s almost three times I have been replaced fuel pump.
    Secondly, it’s steering lock pathatic manufacturing. Yesterday I had replaced it. It happened second time. Overall no match of Honda, driving pleasure road grip command on controls. Overall I gave Honda 5*****.

  • Well i was just going through the news and a news just wide openned my eyes and that was Honda Atlas has made a profit of about 68 crores in the last year after facing 82% decrease as compared to last year. They are charging us huge amount in terms of spare parts and taking heavy profits on the sale of cars. Yet they increase the prices every now and then by a significant amount.
    Pakistan is simply heaven of car manufacturers selling low quality vehicles with minimum or no safety features at all.
