Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Follow up to a comment I made long ago (should've listened to Mig):

The goal appears to be to make people on the periphery poor enough to not get uppity, but wealthy enough to buy Skodas.

VWs are out of reach at this point.

I suggest buying Dacias. They're cheaper than Skodas and they're owned by Renault, a French company.

No, Dacia (as the name indicates) was the Yugo's Rumanian cousin. They make very decent entry-level cars, destined for central and eastern Europe. Renault didn't used to offer them for sale in France, but due to the pressure of parallel importing, they are now obliged to. They correspond to what most people want : solidity and fewer frills, and cheaper than western European models.
