Not passing on the duty reduction benefit to the customers is clearly unethical.
I wonder if you have seen any merit in the 2nd point mentioned in my above post.
Please also see my following post

As for the customer being the paymaster, again, its down to how you see it. I think the only reason why companies respect and care about their customers is because they need to if they want to sell their product, get a good rep and consequently sell even more. In my opinion, if that wasn't the case, car companies (and all companies in general) would treat us like dirt.
You can call me the ultimate cynic but I really do think its the way the world works as unfortunate as it is.
Btw, I'm not as depressing a person as this post suggests

This is an extra duty over (of 20K) and above Excise duty inititated last year for fuel guzzler cars (above 2000 CC)
Since Scorpio and Safari well fall under this league of benefits of this deduction of 5k on these cars. So they should also pass the benefit to customers.
