    They’ve made their mark on the SUV market with a sophisticated line up, and so continue to rise. Yet there are just too many other (cheap) pickup models on the market for them to be competitive. As for their relatively new sedans, it seems they are gathering some respect.

    From an automotive standpoint (and many others), nothing but junk comes from China. Lemons roll from the production line. Quality is poor and service is poor. If not for all the CP control, money, and support, this company – and domestic auto manufacturing – would not otherwise exist in China.

    The sedan side of things seems to have faltered a little, they really could be promoting the range better. It seems their SUV range gets the best marketing materials and the sedans are an afterthought.

    Still behind the best of the breed but I can see dramatic improvements in the quality of Chinese domestic brands over the past 5 years. Many are still not great looking and the power-trains are mostly still average or even imported. But at least they actually look competitive and drives okay. Now if only they can get the safety level up.

    Why would they be pushing for high sales number if in 2014 China will begin restricting the # of cars. Good thing we bought our cars in the middle of 2013, before Guangzhou started restricting the number of license plates being sold. And why did they change the name to haval? Sounds like anal lol
