    Just to highlight for Pakwheels management:

    Pakwheels being an undisclosed partner of Suzuki Motors (Suzuki certified cars available on Pakwheels, is a proof) is trying its best not to criticize Suzuki. Have they ever carried out an analysis in the increase in Suzuki cars prices (like in case of Wagon R, nearly 3Lacs hike) with respect of RsVs$ depreciation. Every graduate can prove it easily that even if we account all the factors like FED etc even then this increase can’t be justified.

    I hope soon govt would allow again the imports of foreign cars as very smartly Suzuki is playing its game to loot money from people of Pakistan. These all are foreign companies and they are in Pakistan to make money & give back to Japan. They are present in Pakistan for more than 30 years but still they are not willing to localize all the parts 100%.

    Pakwheel is losing its credibility in the eyes of people slowly but steadily. I miss those days, when their policy was more focus on the concerns of the public of Pakistan during its initial many years; not about the concerns of auto companies.
