Daktar saheb it is about Mindset. Believe me just the Local mindset.
a. people are willing to spend 3 mil & above next take that prado to CNG shop install 3 cylinders to run on CNG, and spend 2 hours waiting for CNG REFILL.
b. people select crap 5 year old JDM vehicles and ask what is resale value after 5 years.,
c. people buy E class and hire a DRIVER to drive them around whats' the catch ? SHASHKA ?? really !
d. people believe a car does not need periodic maintenance in terms of mandatory replacement of NEW parts as timing belt, oil filter, fuel filter, tyres, flushing of coolant, brake fluid.
last but not least, all YEN credit / loans granted by Japanese Govt are channelled through JETRO watchdog which ensure the automotive policy in Pakistan remain tilted for Japanese interest.
The only disadvantage european cars face in South Asian markets is lack of parts support and small number of units are manufactured right hand drive compared to Left hand which 70% of world is using, thereby making such vehicle 2 notch more expensive to maintain compared to Japanese brands.
and the JUAGROO mentality we adopt to fix the problems in cars. ' Kabli is very common word when it is about parts, buying OEM new or OEM replacement seems like a Tab ooo people dare to think about
Kiki am sorry to read about your ordeal, its very sad
