    OT:
    I think this movie is entitled "Into the Night". The only thing I remembered from this movie is that white 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible, which Jeff Goldblum & Michelle Pfiefer rode in one segment.

    It is quite apparent why the Communist gov't of China insist that every foreign automaker seeking to establish operations in China MUST have a local partner. This policy allow Chinese manufacturers easy access to closely held secrets (ex: manufacturing process, techniques, technology, industry know-how, etc) among established manufacturers, which in turn has exacerbated the "piracy" issue in terms of auto designs and engineering.

    Although the Japanese were also guilty of design plagiarism from the Americans, things were not so simple for the Japanese as they did not attain experience and know-how on a golden platter like the way the Chinese are unscrupulously doing so right now. The Japanese had to reverse engineer American cars and learn their own lessons with no apparent guidance. On the other hand, the Chinese partners of foreign auto manufacturers gets to witness first hand every nook, cranny, everything there is to know about manufacturing automobiles.

    some cars being sold in china(japanese) use chinese names bec some chinese,specially the elderly will NEVER buy japanese brands. the same goes true to korea i think mas malakas pa ata yun anti jap product sentiments nila dyan. i know some koreans na ganun magisip kahit na bata pa :-) although some can pass as pure pirated japeks hahaha

    I agree. Even the South Koreans made clunky copies of Jap cars at first, look at them now - the Kia Sorento and the Hyundai Sonata are among the better cars in the market today.

    How about us? Wala kahit isa.

    Five years from now, China will produce a true world-class car.

    nakita ko na sya kahapon...masasabi ko lang, you'll get what you paid for B). companies might think twice before making it a company car, pero kun gawing taxi...baka pwede pa

    interior is nice and clean, good headroom. kaso nainis ako sa handles that roll the window down -- nagwa wobble. kids would wreck the darn things with ease

    Really don't know.
    Hehe...almost everything from rubber shoes, appliances to cell phones comes from Communist China! Why be uncomfortable.? China today is not really a Communist state...Look at their economy!


    The real Daihatsu Charade Clone was the Tianjin Tj1000 (it actually looked like the Charade G100), since this was made in joint venture with Daihatsu itself and a state-owned company. Now with the proliferation of auto parts suppliers in China supporting these joint ventures, one of China's few privately held car manufacturing companies like Geely, had tapped these supply chains to build their own car version from top to bottom! Very ingenious!
