A prediction is a prediction for a reason, they aren't right all of the time.


I will NEVER buy a truly Chinese vehicle, I say truly, because it is true that a lot of cars use Chinese parts, but are designed by trusted brand names.

While you may think that because of that, American or European cars with parts from China are as bad. False, it's not where that part came from, but who designed it.

I'm never going to trust Chinese engineering, ever. It's why I don't buy fake items, because they won't last. It's like why I would never put my life in the hands of a Chinese gun, or trust my surfboard to not snap in the middle of a shallow wave.

It's not the blatant copying that bothers me, it's the fact that they would make it seem like the trustworthy vehicle that it's based off of, but have it be completely useless in every other sense, and then sell it to the public.

I'm not going to trust items designed by the Chinese, the same country that stimulates it's economy by providing jobs building cities that nobody lives in.

Nothing wrong with Chinese engineering it's when you combine Chinese engineering with cheap companies and people you get problems. You can only stretch a dollar so far. Ever heard of Mark Levinson? He sells high end amps originally under his own name then under red rose audio when he sold his first company to harman Kardon. Under Red Rose audio he was selling Chinese designed and built amps for big bucks with a Red Rose badge on them. You could buy those same amps in China for a few hundred dollars without the badge.
