storm . u r right, people pay silly money as (OWN) plus we still get same shapes and model for ages in corolla and suzuki .
but other countries get new shapes and model quicker.
even INDIA got new shape in swift/cultus for long time and same here in UK.
an other poor example suzuki carry (dubba) in Pakistan which is still the same since over 20 years ,
that,s the reason we pay high prices for old bangers in pakistan as well as new cars.
