Wats the diff ley .. even if car is made in Thailand. Does it make it in any way inferior to a car made in japan ?? As long as car got engine and can move .... it can be classified as a useful car.

Made in Thailand does not mean car comes in without an engine does it ??

As for the owners ... if they buy a car without doing much research about it , trusting it all in the Toyota name ... then 1) They deserve to feel cheated cause of pure stupidity and 2) Should open up their eyes and knowledge on the shifting world economy on production, manufacturing and its cost relations.

It is another sign of our people's mentality.

To ask that they do some homework for something as important as buying a car is almost impossible. So where will our future be? sad.gif

Most of them just ask relative/colleagues. Except those in this forum thumbsup.gif
There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call The Twilight Zone.

It's an open fact that the Altis is a Thai-made car. There were even concerns about the car's origins during its launch. But being Thai-made has its advantages in the form of attractive prices to consumers, and Borneo Motors has smartly played along by adopting an aggressive pricing strategy and passing on the cost savings to consumers. Just check out the price of an Altis (~S$71,000) vs the price of a PI G9 (~S$78,000) and you will see why.

Sadly, Kah Motor isn't adopting the same strategy, preferring instead to keep the fatter profits for themselves by pricing its Thai-made Honda Jazz 1.4 at a premium. In fact, at ~S$72,000, it's actually more expensive than the higher-speced JDM Fit (~S$70,000), although Kah Motor tried to throw in a 3-year warranty to divert some attention away from its pricing strategy.

made in thailand or whatever, I think car manufacturers have to pass on some cost
savings to consumers ...

As for Honda, just becos' it added a more powerful engine to City model, it jacked up its car price for this ...

If you go to onemotoring to check cost of car models, Honda and Toyota have one of the highest margin around ...
