Why is the Suzuki Jimny so expensive to tax?

I am confused! I saw a 2008 Suzuki Jimny 1.3 I liked the look of. Went on to motortax online to see how much tax for the year was. It said tax band 171-190g/km, which is 677 euros!!! Emailed dealer and he said tax correct. Surely something seriously wrong? My husband's Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0-litre is €660 and other Jimnys are 358 Euros.

Will older cars get on the new tax system?

Are the government ever going to put older cars in the new tax system? Some one was telling me older cars will be treated the same in tax as the post 08 cars.

Why are cars a rip-off in Ireland?

My question is: why are cars in Ireland a rip-off compared to the rest of the world? I live in the USA and just bought a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe top-of-the-line model with leather, navigation, Onstar system and many more items for just $21,000.

Hyundai changes a few things on each of its models every year. The Santa Fe in Ireland has been the same since the model was realesed in 2007. Why are the specs so bad in Irish cars? And why are the people putting up with it? Who makes the decision to sell cars like that in Ireland?

The cars in the UK are much better spec wise. If you look at people carriers, the options in Ireland are so small and silly. Take a look at the new 2011 Toyota Sienna. It is a very nice car. Why can Irish people not get these kinds of cars?

Thanks, Raymond
