subaru in malaysia : Why is that so?? Any technical reason for banning it in Malaysia?Is it poor exhaust emission standards? which I don't think so. That'sthe reason used to ban some makes & models in Singapore. Or arethe reasons political? which seems more likely then! To me, theFord Escort is overall by far the more superior product whencompared to all the Malaysian makes such as the Kancil (basicallyonly a Daihatsu) or the Protons (once again basically a Mitsubishi)all of which i won't even aspire to own or want! I definitely takea Ford Escort or a Volkswagan etc. over all these so-calledMalaysian cars which are essentially Japanese cars (which i don'tthink too highly of anyway!) but with some parts sourced fromelsewhere (e.g. nice to note they use VDO instrumentation.. a veryrenowned German brand in that field) with the final assembly donein Malaysia. Of course they it's possible they manufacture someparts in Malaysia as well but even then, the design input tends tooriginate from other manufacturers elsewhere i.e. not too muchoriginality to give their own products any true identity or valueof their own.
subaru in malaysia : How come there's no NORMAL pick-ups in Malaysia? pick-ups here haveinflated-suspension wheels to discourage family-oriented users? is it? You must have an obsession for cars.. maybe you can persuade the WTO..to exchange our rubber, palmoil and tin as payment for car imports,or the treasury to print more notes and pay the car manufacturers with it... if the manufacturers accept,your prayers answered...and dreams come true..you can buy any car just like roti canai.. I'll settle for a Ferrari...-----------== Posted via Deja News, The Discussion Network ==---------- Search, Read, Discuss, or Start Your OwnAFAIK.. no regular series car is banned in Malaysia as longas you import it yourself for your personal use and pay theapplicable taxes.From: ()Subject: Re: MalaysiaCars:People Demands Liberalisation of Car Market Newsgroups: , , , Date: 1998/10/27 wrote:we want more pick-ups for the medium and small businesses in Malaysia.We want want the wheel-suspension of all current pick-ups [FordCourier, Isuzu Invader] to be lowered TO MAKE THEM MORE FAMILYFRIENDLY. just like in Thailand. and USOh I wanna a Subaru Forrester SUV [and why it is banned in Malaysia]
subaru in malaysia : At 2003 World Trade Organisation WTO, APEC, and Asean Free Trade AreaAFTA will sanction and disolve this punititive tariffand all cars will be FAIRLY PRICED AND NOT EXORBITANTLY PRICED!WHY SHOULD ONLY RICH PEOPLE CAN ENJOY SUV'S LIKE HONDA CRV AND TOYOTARAV4ORDINARY PEOPLE SHOULD ALSO BE ABLE TO DO SO.Wira is only RM18,000 world priceKancil is only RM7,000 wpHonda Accord 99 is only RM50,000 wpSuzuki Grand Vitara 99 is only RM50,000 US$19,000 wpKia Sephia is only US$10,000 RM25,000 wp here after 300% punishingtax is RM60,000.Down with Embargo on all GeneralMotors,Ford majormodels,Subaru,Volkswagen,Seat,Malaysian cars are cheap. Thanks to COE and ERP, Singapore has thehighest car prices in the region.I mean, the cost of your Wira is about S$80,000 here.That is one reason why the govt here can run at a profit and hence itis Singapore Inc at work for you.singapore very unfair. malaysia have to have big big company hire many many people to work very very hard to build proton, and theyonly get rm 30,000 for their effort. singapore government print coe, also get sg 40,000...
subaru in malaysia : APEC and afta allow coe ah ? :)Jeff Chang wrote in message ...Cars would seem "cheap" when the comparison is with Singapore. But trycomparing it with other countries and it's obvious that Malaysians arehaving our bloods sucked by the desire to have a "Made-In-Malaysia" car.The only way to make it "successful" is to make other models moreexpensive.Before the Proton came out, one could buy decent Nissan and Toyota makes atRM20,000. The reason why the prices now are so high is mainly because ofthe tariffs.Many of us would not mind driving the good condition and qualitysecond-hand makes imported from Japan and Singapore. They are definitelybetter than the Protons and Kancils. To prevent Malaysians from having achoice, the government does not give out AP permits anymore.i wouldn't mind if cars are expensive but public transport is cheap and available, like in singapore. unfortunately, the lrt serviceis somewhat more expensive than the singapore mrt, and the service is, well, let's say it is still in its early stages...hopefully these are just teething problems and will be fixed by the government. it is important, probably more so than car prices,because the segment of the public that takes public transport is very price sensitive, and represent a large voter base...Ahmad Sayuthi wrote in message ...
subaru in malaysia : People of sales job need to travel frequently and either being encourage toown one or it will be provided by their company. Does people in Penangneed to have car as I think the size of the two places are very similar. Do you call yourself an idiot?Really ! Do you know how far is it from my Office (Bukit Mertajamacross the Penang Bridge) to my Customer Hotel (Batu Ferringgi)? It'sapproximately 45KM and if you take the BUS you need three change over(Different BUSES) to get there. By the time you reach there it'salready in the afternoon. How Long does it take says Woodland toJurong by MRT?Do you know how long does it take from Butterworth to reach my home,Kota Permai Garden (Bukit Mertajam)? Let me tell you approximately 2Hours. How about using MRT in Singapore? 15 Minutes or less?If Penang today has the facilities like Singapore I don't need a car.How can you compare yourself living in a high technology, wellinfra-structure country to some places like Penang that lag behind somany year?Now tell me do you need a car in this if you stay in Penang? I am notan Idiot and you don't use your brain to think properly before youpost cause I mentioned in my last post "If you insist to own your owncar" and not talking about sales people own car.
