Folks With Unsteady Nerves Advised to Avoid SAIPA’s Pride

Folks With Unsteady Nerves Advised to Avoid SAIPA’s Pride Folks With Unsteady Nerves Advised to Avoid SAIPA’s Pride

An Iranian official has warned people with unsteady nerves from purchasing SAIPA's range of Prides.

According to Mohammad Reza Mamdouhi, Iranian National Standards Organization's deputy for quality inspections, despite the fact that the car meets the basic quality standards, it is detrimental to the mental health of those who are easily agitated, Eghtesad News reported.

This is not the first instance of an official bashing the poor quality of this specific vehicle that is ironically the best-selling car in Iran. Its sales figures are mostly due to the fact that it is one of the cheapest vehicles in the domestic market.

Recently, its sales have dipped following the online campaign to boycott the car over its high price and low quality.

Previously, officials with Iran's police force referred to the car as a "death coach" whose seat belts, instead of securing passenger safety, act like a "noose".

The vehicle has been designed to move at speeds of up to 120 kilometers per hour, but it would be highly dangerous to do so.

Several pundits are of the opinion that the Pride is only suitable for inner-city trips and drivers must follow all driving regulations to avoid harm to themselves and others.
