    A very interesting video blog by an American living in china shed some light on why foreign cars are more common in China than Chinese cars. When the blogger asked a Chinese man which car he should buy he told him buy any car except a Chinese ones. They are built with substandard arts that wear down faster then even suzuki (the throw away brand of Japan). Are People in Pakistan so far gone that they don’t even see durability as a necessary trait in a car?
