    Haima previously had a joint venture with Mazda, First Automobile Works (FAW) then bought Haima, but took the JV away from Haima. FAW and Mazda became very sucessful together, but Haima wasnt left out, they receieved many of the older Mazda models that Mazda no longer wished to continue with, such as the Mazda 323. Although we confess to not entirely understanding how Haima managed to make the Haima3, which is very similar to the Mazda3.

    Rumors of a Haima SUV based on a Ford Escape have been circulating since mid 2007. Haima bought a large tract of land in Zhengzhou city with the plan of building a factory. Previously Haima displayed the Mazda Tribute SUV at the Shanghai Auto Show in 2005, and also gave it a Chinese name 丘比特 the plan was to import the SUV direct from Japan, although the ending of the Mazda-Haima joint venture may have put the brakes on that particular venture.

    the Haima S3 SUV looks like the Mazda Tribute given that Haima previously had a joint venture with Mazda.




    is the Haima brand already in the Philippines?

    Yes. They're only selling three models commercially, but they're studying whether to bring in the Haima3. It's under the Laus group in the north.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    I do hope that Haima opens more dealerships, especially here in Metro Manila. They offer cars that have the quality and performance for a very low price and is really something to consider. BTW, the Chinese name given to Haima's Tribute "丘比特" is read as "Qiu Bi Te" which somewhat sounds like the word Tribute "romanized" into Chinese.

    During the recently concluded Beijing Autoshow last April 26 to 30, it was launched as Haima7. It is powered by a self develop Haima engine 2.0L DOHC L4 16V DVVT and comes with a 5 speed Manual transmission. Surprisingly it is a good looking SUV. You could check out their website www.haima.com just click the english version.

    OT:
    I saw a Black Haima3 with the "For registration" plate parked at SM Clark. Is it officially available?
    And also at SM Clark, I checked the FStar yesterday, and All I can say is Wow. The doors alone gave a resounding thud instead of the expected "clunk", the horn is better-sounding than the Chana Starlight jr. which is a ridiculous van or whatever you call it, and it has a nice dual-aircon, something you don't expect from a, well, "multicab van".

    They really should consider opening dealerships in Metro Manila for them to make a big profit. Considering the high quality of their vehicles they should have quite a lot of buyers soon. Now if only their Lynx twin had the same 118hp 1.6 and 142hp 2.0 available...
