Chinese Car Review: BYD G3 - $11,600cdn

clone...1.5L Home made engine or 1.8L from Mitsubitshit

$11,600cdn







this is how they mask up their car from spy shot





this is even worse...they copied Hyundai

They do have creativity here, they made their own air-vents, although the panels and the locations of the climate controls[ even the symbols].......

I wonder if Chinese car makers will give a 10 year warranty bumper to bumper like Hyundai first came out. If so, these BYD cars would be a good for pizza delivery and taxi or rentals.

Who gives a fuck if it meets the needs of the market. This is a cheap basic ride and as long as it meets at least SOME sort of safety requirements then so be it.


If it was here in Canada though. Fuck that nasty bitch ho shit.

I wonder how many more years until Chinese auto makers are capable of my cars on par with the Americans and the Japanese.

At this rate, they'll always be 10 years behind in technology.

true... i got to admit they do have some impressive technology in their big cities that we don't have; however the quality is very low.

DO NOT WANT.

Honestly, China needs to get creative. I bet if you walk into their showroom and ask "so what kind of car does this model compare to?"
they will answer
"well you see, this part is from a Corolla, this is from a Sonata, and the circular airvents are from some other car, so our model can compare to many other brand models!"
