  1. This is what Putin wants the people to drive instead of cheap 2nd hand reliable Japanese cars. [Import taxes were increased with 200 %, an attempt to protect the local manufacturers from competetion] No surprise the people start demonstrating.

    He himself and all DUMA members of course drive Mercedes and BMW. No lada, volga’s or Yugo’s. Not even KamaZ, which is very good !

    • Japanese cars may be really reliable, but here is another reason. Here in Japan, people are not willing to buy the used cars, if a) the car is more than 6 years old, or b) the mileage is more than 60,000km…(unless there is a special reason.. like some people want some old models like VW Bug or something). So we’ve got so many used cars which are amazingly affrodable, but still run really great. They are exported not only to Russia, but to Philipines, sometimes to Thailand, and even to UK!
