Guys guys....Calm down people. Its all good with the Atlas bashing. They deserve it.
However, this is what we get in Pakistan and it WILL NOT improve unless more car companies come in the game. That's as simple as it gets. We have the right to complain but Atlas might read but will not pay any heed to them as they will sell what they make. They have cut corners with every car which is a PKDM BUT as mentioned earlier, its as good as it gets for us in PK. Look around at how many locally PDKM companies you have. 3 or 4 if I'm not wrong. That's about it.
Did Atlas do a survey in the PK market asking people what they expect from the new civic? Anything of the sort? No! They are a money making machine.
If they increase their price, they are only putting a dent in their own revenue stream as some people who cannot afford a civic and don't like what the base model is giving will go for a corolla (It's only competitor as far as PKDM).
At the end of the day its a loss for Atlas, Suzuki, and Indus. Yes we don't get the car we hoped for but this will continue to happen until the government introduces an auto policy which has some rules and regulations as far as the Quality and Features of the cars are concerned with minimum amount of airbags, etc etc.
