"Chinese" does not automatically mean "bad quality" any more than "Made in the USA" ensures good quality. The Chinese companies will build in exactly as much quality as you are willing to pay for. Look at the Iphones. 100% made in China, but they are know as quality items.

For a historical example, take the Koreans. The first generations of their cars were crap and sold horribly. At first, the Koreans figured low cost would offset the low quality and they would sell millions. It didn't work, and Daewoo went out of business They quickly realized that they need to up their quality in order to sell cars. Now Kia and Hyundai offer world class quality. Seriously. Go drive one. But you will notice that their prices are not that great compared to other manufactures.

I'm not scared of Chinese quality just because it's Chinese. I'd be more worried about the company who contracted with the Chinese, and what level of quality they are willing to accept.

A couple things; Not picking on GM but, GM doesn't make cars they make MONEY. GM was the first American car co. to enter the Chinese market many years ago. Manufactures will go to the least cost country that can logistically manufacture what is needed to accomplish their end, (i.e. profit). It's all about price point. More and more americans cannot afford a new car outright, because they still are beyond the means of a good many households. So, leasing was invented to put those families behind the wheel. Chinas' economy is not doing so well recently, thus tanking the markets, theirs and ours of recent. Apple keeps upwards of 100 billion with a B, corporate profit off shore to aviod US corporate taxes. Now theres a patriotic company. I get they will use what ever holes there are in the tax code to keep their PROFITS, it's called BUSINESS. There is no fairy godmother, I googled it and the internet said so. So, ladies and gents, buckle your seats, because the endijng will not look pretty.

I always enjoy a good anti China rant typed on a Chinese made computer or cell phone.
