New Dodge sub-compact from China.

I would be interested to get input about the Chery A1 that will hit our shores in early 08 under the Dodge banner.

I wish they'd make the crx hf again. It'd be so nice to have one new.

about $10,000 I think. They said $7,100 equiv. in China. They'll charge us more of course.

Tuff-lookin' little car, at least from those angles. I don't think I'd be ashamed to drive one. Hafta lose the roof rails for aero efficiency, though.

That's one I'm considering for a business vehicle (I need decent and flexible cargo space). Given the EPA ratings it shouldn't take much to get it over 50MPG, though I don't know how well it'll hypermile beyond that. (Opinions and experiences welcomed.)

Looks like on the economy version, they already did a pretty decent upper grill block.
Lots of big openings in the lower area though.

A case of great minds thinking alike, I'm certain.

Absolute junk, I wouldn't own one if it was given to me.. The Chinese cant build anything quality, what makes a car any different...

I predict they get to about 100k if your lucky and blow up..

Thats kind of an ******* thing to say. People used to feel the same way about the Japanese, then the Koreans. I think the Chinese are doing well, I wouldn't put them down like that.

The Chinese have a lot of our manufacturing equipment. Besides Central and South American, that's where most of our industry labor was outsourced to.
