I'd buy one. Remember Hyundai when it came out with the Excel for $4995? I am expecting that the Chinese will also warranty their cars for 100K or 10 years like KIA. Hell, if that truck only lasts 5 years you still have gotten your money's worth. Buying a Toyota or a Chevy will also depreciate as much as or more than $12-$15K by then as well. If it lasts more than 5 years then you are ahead of the game. I would be interested in crash tests though. The Chinese have been selling to markets such as South America now for a while so I really expect the suspension to hold up. The engines can't be that bad and are probably "copied" from Toyota and Nissan anyways. I think that things will get a little interesting and would most likely force a general price reduction in all cars.
