Honestly try to lift the bonnet/hood of any of the cars from older Indian car-makers & you can genuinely make out the difference of metal quality with modern/foreign cars!
+1. Lest we forgot, it's more to do with how our governments concentrate or interested on the safety of our citizens. Why wouldn't they have standards and disapprove products that don't meet them? That's where the fundamental issue is... Another important factor that we can't ignore is, buyer's mentality. As a consumer, we should boycott products which aren't worth that money. Many here just see what's running on the road and simply go with it without a question. Thankfully, some are cognizant on these facts and that can be seen in the market share in the last few years. Yet, not enough...
After all, these companies are here just to make money, nothing else. So, they would obviously be more interested in making it as cheapest as possible to be more and more profitable, unless it's stopped by oneway or other.
