Maruti is an expert at making cheap (read VFM) cars with expensive maintenance, while Toyota makes over-priced cars with cheap maintenance. Let's pray that (with the alliance), they learn to make VFM cars with cheap maintenance, and not the other way round.

Suzuki-Toyota collaboration update:

Collaboration with Toyota in the area of technology, environment, IT and safety started. It could extend to product-sharing in future.

Suzuki could provide Toyota with some product and have a chance to supply small car technology.

Unfortunately, our experience with Volkswagen was not that good. Thankfully, Suzuki and Toyota are collaborating well
