"I hope the car flops like a flounder," writes Neal Rubin of the Detroit News, referring to the Chinese Geely 7151 CK, recently shown at the North American International Auto Show  in Detroit, Michigan. He points out that, despite all the hysteria about the Chinese automakers coming to the U.S. and stomping all the competition—domestic especially—the displayed vehicles are, so far, a “wreck”.
The glove box wouldn’t close. Corroding engine. Need to pass standard safety and emissions tests. Then there's all those patent infringements that Chinese businesses committed on foreign companies (seemingly  ignored by their government.) One reaction? "Business has to be interpreted in terms of laws around the world,” stated Kevin Wale, Australian president of the GM China Group.
