    I heard that people are paying 50%

    not 40

    Yes it might be true because the government has to meet WTO requirements and that is why it is bringing down the tariffs gradually.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    @ahash:

    I dun think that this wud hav an immense affect on the "LOCAL INDUSTRY" there are many many ppl ho wud never buy a second hand car no matter wht!! Whtever happens they will go brand new cars! if its goin to affect sum1 that's goin to b ppl ho r selling second hand cars. secondly abt our "LOCAL INDUSTRY" the quality of their products is constanly DECREADSING! Im not talkin abt MERC BMW or RENAULT! furthermore i think this will help the ppl of pakistan, as MERC BMW RENAULT n not only these cars but honda toyota n suzuki(PAK) they wud hav to lower their prices to increase their sales!! PLUS...the only reasons y honda suzuki n toyota are selling carz is to earn profit! This wud at least giv 'em a lesson.....

    INSHALLAH in the cumin years cars wud become more affordable, which i thin wud turn out 2 be gud 4 every1!!

    im not goin against the the "LOCAL ECONOMY" of PAKISTAN! I too am a PROUD PAKISTAN n love my county for wht ever it is rite now! N will luv PAKiSTAN till the day i die!
    BUT facts are FACTS BROTHER!!

    Now wen i say: "the only reasons y honda suzuki n toyota are selling carz is to earn profit!" i mean to earn huge profits in LAKHS per car!!
    i dun think a suzuki cultus costs more than 4 lakhs, as they are still using the same INLINE three cylinder engine used in the 1980s by the suzuki.(G10)

    but guess wht a cultus costs u around 6 lAKHs (NET COST)
    so at least local carz wud also get cheaper......

    Not Only this iF we do a Thorough research of our so Called Local Autoassemblers we would FinD that Japanese are LOOTiNG uS Pakistani's!! They are not Transfering Full Techknowledgy to Pakistan, Y not are they doing this ?? Well if they Do this, Their Share in earning would Drop, Cars would go Cheap as Local Manufacturing would Increase. If duties on imports are Revised it Would favour the Local Public ONLY, iT would help in Drasticaly reducing Cars Prices in Pakistan, which I think everyone knows ARE Overpriced. Overpriced not by a Small margin BUT By a Very Large Margin and i really mean LARGE!

    A top spec Civic Sedan in USA would cost you around 7-8 laks PK Rs. (correct me if i am Wrong). But ova Here the same Civic would Cost u around 11-12 Lakhs; Thats WHAT!
    a whoLe 4-5 Lakhs Margin!!


    The Problem iS these Companies or i Should say PAMA (Pakistan Automotive Manufacturer's Asscociation) iS Filling Government's Pockets which is the Reason the Government is Silent till Now about What Pakistani People are Buying and at What Price. These companies know that iF people are given a choice to chose from, they would never go For their products (which are of Low quality and High price). But now Hopefully some of The Corrupted part is being ripped of the Government and now iT too realizes this FACT. No ones gonna Get Harmed if Import Duties on used/reconditioned Cars are Revised, iT would greatly be in Favour of The Pakistani Public. These Companies (Honda, Toyota, Suzuki) have Looted us very MUCH noW and iT got to Stop Now! or iT will Never!.



    ..I hope i have expressed my Thoughts clearly as i Am noT a Guy who can EXPLAIN VeRy efficiently to people..


    People wake Up ! Take a stand against these Looters.

    In my opinion we Should be given the Freedom to buy what we Want and Not just What is Available.

    I think the Evil strategies of PAMA are also being Noticed by Adam Motors Co. and this is Why They have noT joined iT till now ( but again iT is JusT what i ThinK ).

    @Autophile
    Not to stray away from the subject but
    WTO works in funny ways, I think they have double standards and are more of a jewish or western conspiracy against Muslim countries. I mean just look at this, Pakistan makes revenue through these taxes and they are asking them to lower the taxes, so they can have less revenue and depend more on their loans. Yes obey their rules and they will lend you money on easier terms. I have my doubts about this organization, I am just waiting to see what they come up with next. But I guess it is just me, but am worried about the future of Pakistan and where it is heading.

    Small sentences... Clear picture.

    The Japanese manufacturers bribe the govt to earn HUGE profits out of the paki ppl's pockets.

    WTO will Fark the huge insane profits and bring the price down to a reasonable level.

    Paki automakers will streamline thier operations and make em more cost effective to compete with international automakers.

    Good for Pakistan

    @RacerF1

    I'll have to disagree with u there coz lowering the taxes doesnt mean lowering the revenue. This year the government has gotten more revenue from car import taxes by lowering them than in the previous year when they were higher.
    And please dont term evrything as a jewish conspiracy, it sounds stupid. Is it a jewish conspiracy that the japs arent transferring all the technology to Pakistan ?

    @ Proverbial_Slang Bhai,

    u are right. iTs just the Same as is With all the businesses; u reduce Price, u get a higher Profit. By reducing Duties, it would earn Government iN Increased Duty Tax Collection BUT ... BUT Not to mention the Trade Deficit we Would face. But again Hopefully Companies like Adam Motors would emerge and Export Cars For us. Reducing the overAll Trade Loss.
    (ps: can someone please tell me the right term for Trade Loss ?)
