Do you guys realize whats happening here? In 1996 when we bought a zero meter XE, it was priced around 650,000. In around 2006, a zero meter Xli was priced around 850,000. which is around 23 percent increase in 10 years. Fair enough. But in 2011, a zero meter Xli is selling for close to 1.5million Rs. Thats an increase of above 75% in less than 5 years.
Yes i know inflation and ruppee depreciation but we are being MILKED by them. Buying a decent car is a luxury that now even an upper-middle class cannot afford. This was not the case few years back. I just dread where we are going from here. Perhaps soon we'll need big shopping bags carrying notes whenever we go out for grocery shopping.
