Quality Ratings of 33 Vehicles Released

Iran Standards and Quality Inspection Company has released a new report on the quality of 33 locally-made cars.
The new statistics show locally produced cars are still suffering from lower than expected ratings, as some of the models are being produced for over a decade.
According to ISQI's report, in a 30-day period starting from May 21, 84,924 vehicles were manufactured in the country, of which 91% were passenger vehicles.
In the five-star assessment system used for 33 vehicles, only Mazda3, Haima S7, Runna and Tondar obtained 3 stars while 18 vehicles received only one star.
Peugeot 206 SD, Peugeot 405, Peugeot Pars, the Tiba series and the Pride models were among the low-ranked cars. This has remained unchanged from similar reports of previous months.
Statistics indicate that more than half of all local cars assessed (55%) obtained a single star, 24% received a two-star rating and 21% of the cars were given three stars.
Since the implementation of the new star-ranking quality system, no local or locally-produced foreign car has managed to obtain more than three stars.
The new ranking system is reportedly stricter than previous inspection methods, but has been subject to criticism for leaving out critical information.
Previously, cars would receive a number rating above or below zero. Vehicles were evaluated based on criteria, such as technicalities, performance, engine malfunction, brakes and electronics.
Problems concerning design and assembly were also taken into account as were unusual sounds, water resistance, body work and paint. All these data are excluded from recent reports.
In a previous report in June, statistics indicated that more than half of all local cars assessed (56%) obtained a single star, 19% received a two-star rating and 25% were given three stars.
