China's automobile exports topped the one million vehicle mark for the first time in 2012 as total units delivered increased almost 30% for the year. Slowing demand in China has more domestic automakers looking to sell abroad and partner with western companies such as Volvo (VOLVY.PK) and General Motors.

    After seeing Chinese cars perform in crash tests I would never buy one. They were worse than American autos from the 40s and 50s.

    As an avid bike rider in Shanghai and Beijing, as well as San Francisco Bay Area, I can assure you the brakes and enhineering system work just as well.

    "...and partner with western companies such as Volvo (VOLVY.PK) and General Motors."

     

    With Bin Laden dead (and the Middle East now quiet) and GM alive (thanks to Progressive government intervention) wouldn't it be ironic if a Chinese car company "partnered" with GM to export Chinese-made cars to the U.S.?

    Is Volvo even a "western" brand.

     

    It is owned by Geely, a Chinese company.
