Is Honda greedy?
« on: June 24, 2022, 12:22:40 PM »
Hello,

Here are the prices of the accessories in belgium  (Google translate is your friend)

https://www.fr.honda.be/content/dam/local/be-ne-lux/brochures/cars/2022/Jazz_accesOnePage0522BFR.pdf

On many cars of this price range base models are sold with some of these accessories ! Everything else is overpriced!

It's as you said: "Not sure if it's worth it". Now you are sure, aren't you?

For you it's clearly not worth it! Fortunately, no one is obliged to purchase a Jazz, so let it be...  :-*
Stay on the right side of the road (I mean here, mainland Europe, the >>> RIGHT side).

Actually, for alloy wheels, they are half the price we pay in the UK!

Someone was just quoted £600 by a main dealer for a 16 inch Jazz alloy here, the same thing including sales tax is only £300 in Belgium

I suppose it depends where the parts come from. If Japan then Brexit should have no effect.
Let's be careful out there !

I might choose a brand that makes more sales. Probably a Kia. The Niro is no Jazzoke

Talking about sales: BEST-SELLING CARS IN 2021. FULL RANKING https://fiatgroupworld.com/2022/06/13/the-tesla-model-3-hits-global-top-10-best-selling-cars-in-2021-full-ranking/

Check Honda and Kia.... :D
And talking about more sales. Let's look at the Jazz and your eventual choice, the no "Jazzoke" Kia Niro:
Honda Jazz/Fit worldwide sales 2021: 258,000 that's the 54th place.
Kia Niro worldwide sales 2021: Not in the top 110 most sold models... (must be less than 165.000...)

So... if it is about choosing a brand that makes more sales than Kia: Honda will be still a good option...  ;D

Except that because our borders are jammed suppliers might decide to hold more stocks in the UK to enable parts to reach customers faster and those stocks have to be financed, hence higher prices.

Compared to other car manufacturers, not really. You can be assured extras or accessories add 0 to the value once used.
You can always buy used, and forget about the additional built in headaches on newer models. Remember to keep driving before your Government prevents private travel.
