I feel for you guys, we have a similiar problem here. Theres next to no tariffs on imported cars here. So people go out and buy some korean crap to save a few bucks, ditch the car when it $hits itself and get another one! The other excuse is that japanese cars have higher build quality, well i've seen a few of them and compared them to local cars and i honestly cannot see what people are complaining about. Probably because our media (mind you, they are bias towards Holden anyway since they seem to think it's Australian despite being owned by GM since the 40's**) drive it into our heads that australian built cars are unreliable gas-guzzlers.
**Nothing against Americans owning it, just making a point of how ignorant the general public seem to be here.
