^^ They purchased the rights to the brand, even if just to flog the history to unsuspecting buyers, nothing wrong in it. However, if they resort to selling stuff below even BOM value due to backing of the Chinese state, something regulatory (what?) needs to be done.
I am afraid that they might replicate their success in the mobile phone market, in turn destroying our Domestic industry ! With the deepest pockets in the world and the Li-Ion ecosystem in their control, the Chinese will be very difficult to rein in.

viewtopic.php?p=2403132#p2403132 , a reply to your earlier query. Pick whichever you find in good condition at a fair price in your area. Used car dealers are mostly crooks, most cars are with a tampered ODO.

Maruti Will Not Send its cars for crash testing to Global NCAP

Classic case of student skipping the exams because failure is nearly guaranteed.

They would claim to meet Bharat NCAP which would probably be an ultra-watered down version of the real thing, making it easy for tin cans to score 5 stars.
Theek hai, as long as the market ignores.

Thing is I can understand first time buyers to ignore safety but there are quite a few well off folks who have a choice going for Maruti. Thier cars have become extremely light weight and not through use of expensive and lightweight materials found in high end cars, but making them lightweight and low cost. Thier milage is not through technology but just through ultra lightweight cars, also tyres, brakes cheaper parts are used. All this means you a car which is generally cheapest in the segment with fancy electronic features, good power/ torque to weight ratio , good milage and high resale, mainly on account of cheap spares.

Buying Maruti is a good financial decesion at the cost of safety. I hope more Indians start choosing safer options and end this monopoly.

The usual Chinki trick is to steal if not then buy a foreign brand and peddle cheap Chinki crap as a western product! :twisted: :twisted:

This is true. My own family chides me for "wasting the seat space" in the car by having a child seat affixed. Part of the same set of people who used to poke fun at me for "wearing a helmet while riding a mere scooty", back in the early 2000s. :D

Didnt Gopinath Munde die in a low speed car crash because he was not wearing seat belt? I feel Trauma injury can be caused at speeds even less than 50 KMPH.

In addition to that he was in a Maruti SX4 where the manufacturer does not believe in putting Side impact beams in the doors and uses thin sheet metal to maximize mileage but occupant can feel the force of the collusion.
