Abrar Eghtesadi wrote an article detailing the questions asked by the members of parliament from auto manufacturers: How long do they need to manufacture a quality automobile? The article quotes Hamidreza Fooladgar, Member of the Parliaments Commission for Industries as saying that the price of automobiles is not reflective of their quality. Mr. Fooladgar said that for years, the Government has used tariffs to support domestic automakers, yet everyday people are less satisfied with quality of domestic automobiles.
