    Well,it may be a cheap shot! But it's true.
    No other man-made device since the shields and lances of the ancient knights fulfills a man's ego like an automobile.

    whats true in it? Even corolla is more worst quality wise if we compare it with dihatsu mira! Japanese imported vehicle are countless times better then any local. Axio is way better then corolla. You may visit personally and see the difference. This is just a mafia of automobile industry in Pakistan. Lol at xli and gli, costing 1.8 million and having 1300cc underpowered engine and built quality just like any lohar worked on it with his hands

    This is the reason for their depression. http://tribune.com.pk/story/449788/l...-15-month-low/

    This means Local corolla can even beat bmw, mercedes.. If I apply the bullet points mentioned in red evil head.. Such a shame toyota backlash on its own brand.. Lol

    JDMs are cheaper than local cars. They are also of better quality which is why people are buying them.

    Local cars haven't become cheaper because local assemblers have decided not to compete on price as yet. Instead they are trying to compete a) on marketing as you see in the ad above and b) via rent seeking. They are trying to put pressure on the government to change its policies and restrict imports of JDM cars:

    Only once these two approaches fail will they seek to compete on price.

    Someone should ask IMC that Camry, or Accord are specially designed for Pakistan? Those are also imported.. I believe there would be lot of scam in imports as far as quality , odometer stuff but still you can find a nice vehicle..

    96/- = 1$. Inflation is also a big issue.. Same brand and model like Accord is 2.8Mn in India and about 8Mn in pakistan.. CRV is below 2.5Mn in India and 5mn in Pakistan.. The difference is currency is half to dollar in India.. So I would say they need to sell cars and economy is in shambles .. What they can do? They cut corners to save resulting in low quality vehicle..

    I cant stop laughing when they say built for pakistani roads, engine not suitable for pakistani fuel. WTH are we still using nokia 3310? Technology has pushed us to buy better things at cheaper prices. What car is made suitable for Pakistani roads btw? Mehran? They cudnt change its kamani suspension in 30 years, Corolla made in Pakistan is a replica of the car made around the world they canty even change a light bulb with out the permision of toyota, honda, and suzuki internationaly. Why is honda leading with euro 4 and euro 5? And recomending to use hioctane? Y is ptcl working for 3g technology so latest fones and gadets can work? They should still stick to 2g or even landline. Mobiles arnt suitable for Pakistani enviorment they get stolen what crap seriusly.

    JDM engines are designed for 100 RONs fuel. Do we have it in Pakistan? Running on low quality fuel, the JDM engines may not last long.

    True PKDM quality is poor and prices are high (due to insane taxes and rapidly depreciating rupee), but you get full backup and service and spares are easily available.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    They missed the comaprison of security features, no loss of money as JDM dont get stolen or cannot be stolen due to immobiliser.

    People still prefer reversed odo cars over these brand new so called car which is basically combination of a dabba + engine + 4 tyres.

    Person spending 1.5 million on xli but no power windows, sala 13,000 main power window ho jati hai!

    Improve the quality and make the car competetive, let the people be judge not you, as the cons / devils of jdm car which they are mentioning is due to high duties of jdm cars, not every car is like that.


    Who has stolen my signature place?
