What do you think of "New National Automotive Policy"

A total of 18 new policies and measures covering licencing, duties, incentives, technology and environment, safety and standards and APs to be effective January 1st 2010.

  • Open AP system to be scrapped by December 31 2015.

  • AP holders will be audited twice a year.

  • A gazetted Customs pricelist for used CBU cars to be established to supplement the current list of new CBU cars. This will be used to prevent underdeclaration of grey import vehicles by declaring then as used instead of new in order to manipulate the price, as the gazetted pricelist is currently only for new vehicles.

  • A large chunk of the RM300 million expected to be collected from the RM10,000 per Open AP fee to be used to develop the auto industry and increase Bumiputra entrepreneurship participation in the auto industry.

  • Import duty on CBU & CKD cars maintained.

  • Import of used parts to stop in June 2011 (what???).

  • Incentives and exemptions will be increased to develop local auto parts.

  • Franchise APs to be terminated by December 31 2020.

  • Foreign firms can apply for manufacturing licenses to hold 100% shares in firms to produce vehicles with engine capacity of larger than 1,800cc and costing more than RM150,000. This will open up the upper end of the market while keeping the lower end where Proton and Perodua are protected.

  • Issuance of new Manufacturing License to be unfrozen for selected segments hybrid and electric vehicles, pick-up trucks, commercial vehicles and motorcycles with engine capacity of 200cc and above.

  • Vehicles 15 years and older will have to be tested for roadworthiness; provisions to be made for vintage cars.

  • A new strategic partnership between Proton and an established manufacturer will be established.

Local and import car still expansive.

It seen like gov force everyone to buy new car … no more recycle scrape car parts from japan cos we will also force to scrape ours start from year 2010… But we are so unlucky that we have to pay for a 200-300% profit margin national car or paying 200-400% tax for an imported car.

Prohibition of the import of used cars from 2015, and used automotive parts and components from June 2011. forcing to buy proton…?

Buy new car and scrape your car after warranty period… let gov earn kaw kaw the import tax, apa apa lp tax and bank interest.

so buy a 50+k proton car, loan 9 years then scrape it. bank loan 9yr interest earn about RM15’000-20’000 … total to pay a scrape metal about 80k lorr… then we need to get it restart again.
we ciak lat only ma… within the period paying the car, if we really unlucky blow engine … ready 10-20k buy new engine from proton lo… no money repair or pay loan then wait for bank to sue bankruptcy…

live in KL still o k la… income better, public transport also easy to get… kampung sarawak? you no car , no need to work… work also enough to pay for car loan only.

Wang Malaysia!

Dunno how our government think la…They never stand on our side and think for us. Always treat us like the ATM machine !! They are AH LONG who are legally!!!

meaning not more recon … you still can get imported cars from the respective dealer = ) …no more grey imports

its actually kinda nice, cuz the prices of current grey import cars will shoot up cuz we basically the last to import them … tiou like that i better get a 370z before 2015.

We’re all screwed… that’s what it means…

One malaysia…malaysia boleh…:mrgreen:

…* Import of used parts to stop in June 2011 (what???)…

Those who cause this to happen must be punished - in the next DUN election and General Election…

You ban imported used parts so that your cronies can make big bucks selling expensive but substandard car replacement parts?

With the 'not fit to drive on roads in many parts of Sarawak, we has already been footing higher repair bills for our our vehicles. Now it is going to cost more unnecessary if this 'rogue regime ’ is allowed to continue to rule this country!

Sucking more bloody from the rakyat. Have they implement the credit card RM50/- charges for next year yet?
