  1. Hi.. you may consider road testing Chinese cars from popular(recently) brands Changan, GAC, MG, BAIC, Hongqi as these are selling in good numbers. You may include your review reliability related points like how many panels have already come off and how many are likely in next few weeks, how loudly the body and panels rattle etc, so that readers can make well informed buying decision. You may also include interview or feedback from existing users (not those who are trying to sell).

    • Yes, A good Suggestion. I second that..

    • Dear Nabajyoti, you seem to underestimate the performance of chinese cars, I own a MG RX8 for the past 21 months with 32k currently on the ODO, the vehicle performance is consistently excellent as day one, i am enjoying the luxury of this car at a budget price where you have to empty 200k to enjoy same benefit from other (so called) established brands. Korean cars had similar impression among public when they were initially launched, now you know what is their market share.

      PS: I am not selling my car 🙂

  2. I would like to know why Qatar is updated with latest Chinese cars like Maxus and Geegly with their latest launches like Geegly Tugella and Maxus D 60 and it’s not there in UAE. I usually think the other way that UAE market releases the latest one
