2. Who wants a Chinese car?
I don't think they could even give those things away.
China can't even make a child's toy that isn't dangerous.


When you pay workers slave wages don't expect them to produce a decent product!

4. I have driven a few chinese cars overseas
Most of them didn't really strike a positive or negative note with me, just another little car - though I really liked the Chang'an Benni. The handling on all the Chinese cars was a little strange to me, but were all strange in the same way.



I saw the remains of one that had been hit by a truck, looked pretty survivable.

6. According to this
the Chery BS6 model got 1 star crash test rating.

They might improve and get better rating in the future, but I bet the company will simply give the US government a different car so it can pass the safety tests. But the cars that go into production are probably not so safe. I wouldn't be surprised to see a flood of safety recalls in this car's future. Chinese companies have a terrible reputation for quality. Can you think of any Chinese brand that is known for quality? I can't. I hate to generalize but its true.
