Fears of 2012 car price rises, and calls for action?
New 2012 car models due to hit dealerships in Qatar are expected to be offered at rates of two to five percent higher, due to currency fluctuations, according to local media reporters.
The Peninsula newspaper reports that consumers are already calling on authorities to take action against a potential rise, and the government has passed a draft law to break up the “monopolistic practices” of car dealers in the country.
What do you think – are prices unjustifiably high? Do the country’s main car dealers have veritable monopolies on the trade? Or are they doing a good job?
