    Default Mercedes-Benz assembly plant in Pakistan

    Read the following news in Dawn. Lagtaa hai Mercedez kay bhi buray din aa gayee hai Pakistan mai :-D

    ISLAMABAD, July 21: The Punjab government, on the instructions of the centre, is all set to acquire by force about 1,200 acres of prime agricultural land in the Sheikhupura district at a much lower than the market price for a Mercedes-Benz assembly plant by a locally-registered but hitherto unknown firm under licence from the German manufacturer, Daimler-Chrysler.

    If it's going to be assembled here, it's gonna be cheaper (if it is sold in the domestic market).

    But the main worry will be the quality of the cars assembled here. Whether Mecedez will maintain the same quality or we will be looking for German assembled Mercs here ;-)

    why do we always think so negatively.!

    we should be happy that merc is coming to pakistan.atleast it will be better than the domestic cars avilable at the time. also it will create a competion.{like cell fone comapnies}

    yar PAKISTAN assebled cars are not that crap as many pakwheels members mention atleast the cars i have bought were good built and had no quality issuesthis is a good news. i
    Past cant be brought back ..but future can be made even better than the Past..if one wants to.. ....

    Great news; Germans are not like "our" dear car assemblers, the quality of their cars will, therefore, be super.



    Dear beeberg brother


    The word paki is like mother's abuse, so brother please don't use this word again.


    thanks
    Proud to be Pakistani
