    yan ang hindi na-consider ng Phil. distributor na Honda...

    na pwede maging rice mobile ang Honda...

    dikitan ba naman ng TRD sticker hehe

    dapat nag draft sila ng contract stating "...should be maintained in original manufacturer's condition throughout the entire service life of the unit..."

    "...installation aftermarket parts, accessories, stickers are prohibited..."

    Di nga naging taxi...

    pero na-modify naman ng mga may kaka-ibang taste...

    Yeah... the "high maintenance cost" myth is crazy. Honda casa and Toyota casa prices are similar, and the new Altis doesn't have parts that are as cheap as the old ones... and the old Corolla had really cheap parts because those parts were cheap... IMHO... you get what you pay for when you buy the cheapest replacement parts... stuff which only lasts a few months before breaking down.

    Like in Ferrari's case, you can not just walk in with a suitcase full of money and buy a unit. They have to screen you first so as to maintain their brand image din kasi.
    Yeah... but once you buy a Ferrari, you can do whatever the heck you want.

    Ferrari is suing the guy... saying that he can't use their badge on his service (Done) or even say the word Ferrari in reference to the car (ha... in their dreams).

    Honda doesn't screen the buyer. All you have to say is: "Hey, I'd like a Civic... oh... thanks... will a manager's check be enough?" and you can walk out the door with a car.

    As said... all Honda can do is void your warranty for unwarranted use. With other makers, like Toyota, you can get warranty as a taxi operator, but you have to inform them first... plus Honda will not give you fleet discounts for such purchases.

    In other words, if you want to use the Civic as a taxi, a police car or a pizza delivery vehicle, go right ahead, Honda can't do a thing about it.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    may nakikita din akong altis na taxi dito sa metro manila.

    i think its time na din na patunayan ng honda na pwede din silang taxi. patunayan ang tibay kung baga.

    really can't understand those honda users who claim that their rides are a class above the others because they are not used as taxis. . .kotse lang din 'yan. . .ika nga, "carbon dioxide din ang lumalabas sa tambutso nyan". . .

    What's the big fuss about Honda being a Taxi anyway? Like a previous post to this thread has pointed out, a Benz is used as a Taxi in Europe, and other high-end cars to boot.
