Is that the same Parkers often dismissed as publishing nonsense by said car dealer?

It is, yet its the same Parkers that everyone on here regails as being the next best publication to the Bible. Sarcasm is quite difficult to convey online....

But really though, I do wonder how they are actually selling nationwide at the minute. I have yet to see one on the road in NI. Does anyone have any anecdotal evidence?

Oh, and Parkers are more of a fairytale publication than anything else, especially when it comes to used car prices. In my experience of course.

As I've said before, ballpark figures are okay from them. It's a bit like reading AutoExpress - pinch of salt etc.

Definitely needs to be a "sarcasm" smiley!

I had one of the very first 8th Gens in our area and i drove for months without seeing many others at all.

I seem to remember going down to the British Grand prix from Aberdeenshire without seeing another the whole journey....there and back.

( i thought i was archie for months before they started appearing)


It will take time.

I would take this seriously but.. hasn't it already been proven Honda had bribed auto journalists to give the car good reviews.

But its based on the 1.4 model. how does the rest of the range fair.

I don't buy new depreciation is two much wait for it to be 2 to 3 years old. As they are so fugly I'll wait for a nice sirocco.

I've seen quite a few in Beds, Herts and London.

People said the same thing when the 8th gen came out. 7th is better etc. Those that now own the 9th gen have all said it is better. This latest award adds to this.

A brand new car model (mainstream manufacturer) that has registered about 2500 in about 6 weeks, um, I think some offers will not be far away!!

Sadly, I don't worry too much what any magazine writes, the range is just too expensive IMO.
