There is another problem with this depreciation bit.
Cars are priced against the USD and we all know that if we can cut the expense of USD import we can benefit. In this case we have 3 local assemblers who originally were set up to export cars - Not one single spare part is even exported. No part in any Toyota, Honda or Suzuki catalog is from Pakistan.
Ever wonder what happened to that.
When an entire peoples mentality is to lust after "untouch, jenyan, kancha, lash pash, aakheer, lashkara etc" car - no matter if there is no after sales support (JDM, EU, UK imports) - you cannot expect miracles. We as a collective are like squirrels and will fall for shiny stuff.
People even want to "override ABS, air bag control modules - asking where to buy a used air bag etc. - You think such people will tackle depreciating cars? They dont even want to move with time - they are still stuck in the same 200 year old termite infested buildings.
