Don't have a single clue what you guys are talking about, Dewaan Mushtaq Motors Invested and Brought KIA AND Hyundai to this tatti country and later as usual the oligopoly of Toyota, Honda & Suzuki with massive Political influence kicked them out and made them hard to carry on their operations.
IT IS THE GOVERNMENT, i have lived in the Uk, KSA and have traveled half the world, our country is the only place where there is NO CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT where quality should be provided over quantity and PRICE MATCH configurations do not take effect.
Who authorize suzuki to sell mehran in pakistan? can suzuki do it else where on the planet? simple answer. NO.
same as standard features like immobilizer, airbags, Passenger safety certificate approval tests of the car which is later approved to be PASSENGER friendly.
IT IS THE GOVERNMENT, massive influence in motor industry. There is no regulatory authority in pakistan to regulate the consumer products, DO WE GET VALUE FOR MONEY?
my brand new 1 week old Toyota Corolla got stolen in november 2012 from G-10 Islamabad. Does anyone care? every month 500 Corolla cars are stolen from the capital city ISLAMABAD.
Is there any regulatory authority which could question and halt toyota's operation in paksitan until they provide standard feature which is needed the most like immobilizer and other security measure referring to millions of FIR Reports registered in the police stations? (DONT YOU DARE SAY THE IMMOBILIZER DONT SAVE THE CAR, YOU LOCK YOUR HOUSE WITH THE BIGGEST LOCK AVAILABLE BUT SOMETIMES WE STILL GET ROBBED, DOESNT MEAN WE SHOULD NOT LOCK OUR HOUSE)
ABSOLUTELY NOT, IT IS THE GOVERNMENT, our government on media say they want investors but the governments terms are so harsh that even if someone wants to invest they dont. Want to know the reason ? because Their influence within the industry is so much they dont want their commissioning to be halted.
KIA AND HYUNDAI were happily operating in pakistan but because of the TERMS Government want them to operate, they dont even tatti now in pakistan because they know government would want commissioning on that too.
Same HYUNDAI & KIA are market leaders now, i was in uae last week. the cars Hyundai is offering now are beyond this piece of junk corolla and civic and quality we are getting here.
for 10 Lakh Rupees you get hyundai ACCENT there, and has features more than our countries 2.6 million Honda Civic.
IT IS THE GOVERNMENT. my heart absolutely bleeds when someone says its the people or the investors but not the government.
P.S believe me, international media dont give a rats about our country they have better stories to cover, international media portrays pakistan better thn the local paksitani media does.
Its not even about the media or the image of country, its about Government LOCAL REGULATING AUTHORITIES. which are absolute ttatti and poti
