    I'm not sure we ALL agree with this. Sounds like the Ministry of Information issuing propaganda!

    Now it goes without saying everyone on HK including me wants to see Honda do well and increase the market share it holds. Currently the market share Honda occupies is quite frankly far below expectations but nevertheless this article does not echo the sentiment on the ground but some vague resurgence of Honda in Europe on back of :tut: pack..:nea:
    The reality is Honda customers want their cars now, the lead times which Honda give to customers is quite horrific, we have all seen the number of disgruntal customers who have been fobbed off with misleading delivery timescales. If Honda wants to do well they have to delivery on their fundamentals not this propaganda which quite frankly cannot be substantiated with action.

    What they need is an introduction of 5 more model and customer bespoke option from the factory, that what will get your cars selling.

    Get the S660 here now.:drinking:

    I've heard this type of thing before. Now where was it?
    Ah yes, from the one and only Sir Humphrey.

    Sir Humphrey.

    This rhetoric sits perfectly in Yes Minister/Prime Minister. It's a disgrace in the real world!

    What return of well loved models? Ok HR-V is back and CTR but it's hardly a Honda renaissance is it?

    Where is the Prelude, Integra, Ballade, Accord, Legend?

    Merely window dressing so far...

    Revitalised models? Lipstick and tart up for Civic and CR-V that's about it.

    Even where we do have genuinely new Honda products like the Jazz and HR-V there doesn't seem to be any decent promotion to tell people about them.

    Oh they do exist but were only shown for a couple of weeks when the car was launched there is no reinforcement of them. TBH the HR-V advert is shocking its does nothing other than oh yeah, as if & come on now.

    The Jazz well its signing to the midlife crisis audience which is its core customer.

    Have you seen any more repeats of these poor attempts of adverts? again on TV? NO

    Now this (non-UK) HR-V advert made me smile...weird, but better than what we had IMHO.
