    This is their strategy; they are charging us for models which are 20 years old; they still give us a decade old technology but yet they claim the price of new models.

    There was a time when middle class people purchase Mehran VXR or VX
    but now….
    Rs547,000 is too much for this small car.

    Folks, don´t forget it´s a crime to own or drive a decent car in Pakistan. Pakistan public is getting raped at at the hands of an extortion mafia that includes these car assemblers.
    The Suzuki models that are being assembled and sold in Pakistan would not even be allowed to enter the Western market for being sub standard adn obsolte.
    Our governments and policy makers are hand in glove with these assemblers. such is the power of the influence and probably hefty kick-backs, that in the name of protecting the local industry, the Pakistan public´s last remaining drops of blood are being sucked out on a daily basis by the auto industry.

    Here is a simple solution that is in practice in another 130 countries of the world: Allow free import of pre-owned Japanese vehicles and lower the non-sense, crazy custom duties that make it impossible and sell majority of the models. Not only we can get top quality vehicles at the fraction of the cost of the crappy vehicles being sold in Pakistan, we could get a better value for buck in terms of fuel consumption, safety and environmental impact.

    Time and again we have been fooled by the politicians who are defending their CLIENTS with stupid arguments. The top notch, super equipped vehicles, suv´s, mini vans, commercial vehicles like buses, trucks and for that matter even military grade vehicles could be acquired at the fraction of the cost. We don´t need no Yellow CAB scheme whatsoever at the cost of the public exchequer.
    M;any multinational companies are exporting and commercialising the vehicles in many many countries across the globe, They would be happy to come and invest in Pakistan. The cost of financing a vehicle would come down drastically due to the competition and the same would happen to the costs of the Brand New vehicles. Our assemblers and car manufacturer won´t have any choise but to reduce their margins due to tougher competition. Guess who would be laughing in the end if it ever happens. Us folks…the public who do not stand a chance, under teh present state of affairs.

    I wonder if there is any regulatory body in Pakistan for price control in Pakistan. I dont see any reason for increase in pricess when there are same plnats being used for decades old car model. I urge government to pls look into this. Alteast, these increased prices must be approved by some authority.

    Every body in Pakistan is grabbing and snatching money with both hands. There is no government and authority which can control prices in Pakistan. Poor souls the citizens of Pakistan have no courage to resist.
