Chinese automakers make presence felt, target U.S. market

Still, critics say the Chinese aren't ready to sell cars in the USA, which is the largest automotive market in the world.

Ken DeWoskin, a consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers' Detroit office, says the Chinese need at least 10 years of exporting flawless auto parts and supplies before venturing into car exports. They've only been exporting parts for five or six years. "The cars you see at the auto show are not ready for prime time," he says. "The fit and finish on the vehicles they ship to Detroit is way off."

But they could catch up quickly.

"Their ability to move quickly is unlimited," Smith says. "They have huge resources and ambition, and can buy the talent and expertise they need to get up to speed."

Eventually, at least one Chinese automaker would like to take over manufacturing cars for the USA, and let Americans specialize in high-technology manufacturing.

"Americans should go to a new industry of space technology," says Geely's Li Shufu. "The automotive industry is a traditional manufacturing industry. … America should do the easier job and keep the hard job for us."

tick tock?

our politicans need to set up roadblocks in legislation so this does not happen

Pretty cocky words coming from a country that makes piles of $h! that disintegrate when they nudge a shopping cart, have interiors that would look bad next to something out of the 80's and eats cats.

Don;t forget the lead poisoning.

china owns us though. we can't say anything bad about them or a few moves and our dollar is worthless.

face it, china will have us by the balls if they don't already.

yes, we are supposed to burn resources investing while they reap the profits.

they want our consumers to fuel their economic growth which will simultaneously kill ours. if we don't, they will simply arm up and kill us.

in the words of a famous person.....

tick tock tick tock

i wonder if hilary has been cozying up with them already since Bill liked China a bunch.
