It seems speaking to some Victorian and NSW Suzuki wreckers that the Indonesian APV G16 engines are not as good as the Jap Baleno, with many issues due to casting, rods, gearboxes having issues that makes parts scarce for them.

Does anyone have any more info or reason why this is happening? is the APV completely made in Indonesia or other parts of Asia as well? Its a real shame as with every new model of an Engine you expect improvements but it seems not in this case.

I believe this is due to the rapid internet spread on the globe. People start to use the standard telephone connection less often as there are many other efficient ways of communication like Viber, various types of messengers and so on. Mobile providers are enjoying their best time as the population https://populationstat.com/united-states/las-vegas in Las Vegas grows. Who would have thought a few decades ago that traditional telephone lines will lose their importance so fast?
