    New car entrants were given import concessions so they can compete, establish themselves and invest here in our auto sector to produce locallymade cars. Instead, they took advantage of the concession given to them to sell imported cars without investing much here. Their cars were CKU which were merely assembled here. No localization of key components hence very little investment.

    As soon as their 3 year concession period was over, they packed up and went home. They had no long term plan and no strategy to survive. They were here to make a quick buck.

    FAW has not invested much in Pak either. No vast after sales service network, no major manufacturing plant, etc. They have little too loose if they had to leave or become unsuccessful. What's the guarantee Pakistani customers won't be dumped again and won't they the value of their lifetime earnings taking a nosedive?
    if some day FAW packed their back and discontinued FAW the customer can always go to toyota 3s bcoz FAW vizi has almost all parts same as vitz

    FAW has setup their plant here in Pakistan long ago (The "worthy" then PM, Raja Pervaiz Ashraf inaugurated it ).

    They are into the truck business and running successfully.

    The dealership network isn't large enough, but has entry level presence, at least.

    all the cars being imported from Japan have no after sales service either..you break a light or a side mirror ,you end up in junkyards looking for them..still people buy them..imo the mentality is changing.
    Liana failed becoz it was an ugly looking car and people preffered city over it.
    wagon r will fail only coz its ugly too..who wants to buy a car that looks half car half carry dabba..
    this is not the case with vizi..it looks good but the only drawback it has is the 'Made In Chaaina' label..FAW needs to change this mindset by marketing..the same reason qmobile is a success..
    FOCAL /// PIONEER /// AUDISON /// KICKER /// JVC /// PHOENIX GOLD.

    Now most of the 3S parts at Toyota dealerships are also MADE IN CHINA. All your Samsungs and Apple devices and laptops are made in China. FAWs vans and pickups are running fine and have better fuel efficient Euro 4 engines. Recently I have seen an influx of FAW vehicles on Pakistani roads.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    I saw a white V2 from outside of the showroom. Exterior was looking quite good and attractive. In real the car looks much nice and better than the pics and brochures.

    Now will see that how many of us lot being in favor of FAW actually buys One.
    If I get a chance I'll sure look up to the XPV in red.

    Well this would be a good car but the fact is that this car is a flop in its Home China so how can it be a hit here ? Check the current rankings and last year results for this car , out of 379 models selling in china it is at number 302 with minimum sales(144 sale average per month) and a drop in sales of -29% over 2013 showing a negative feedback and no customer confidence so good luck to the buyers !!!

    Suzuki Cultus is sold like anything as well as all time favorite Mehran. Both are exclusive to Pakistan. Pakistani market is diffrent. Less choices and no competition. China is one of largest automotive market with every other brand. FAW-VW China assemble VW and Audi for Chinese market. I am sure this V2 is just a peanut for them.

    Dear , who said liana is best seller in china ? It is not even in top 200 there, it is a flop there as well. The link you highlighted shows what ??
    My point is that it is not even selling in China showing people didn't like it so how it can be sold here ?

    Agreed but if the product is good it will sell for sure, the best selling vehicle in China is a Chinese make(Wuling Hongguang) also there is Haval H6, Changan Eado, Donfeng Joyear, BYD models etc which are top selling china made cars/Suv's and still selling against all competition whereas FAW V2 is not selling at all which shows its repute and no customer confidence.

    Swift was probably the top selling car in India, and you know what fate it found in Pk.

    So can't compare with markets of other countries.

    They plus point of FAW among Chevy and Nisan is they are successful in Large Truck market, even XPV prove its ability, but in other case like Chevy they enter in the market with cars and exist within 4 years...

    Today I visited FAW Motors to view the car, and have booked test drive for tomorrow.

    As for the viewing, the car is not bad at all. Yes its different from what we are used to.
    Engine is smooth, starts and sounds like Corolla 1.3.
    Cabin is spacious, fit & finish is decent.

    Looking forward to test drive. Seriously considering of buying this car.
