Imported Cherys Waranty = 3 Years or 60,000 KMs ( first two services are free ) Localy assembled chery ( speranza ) = 3 Years - 100,000 KM
Geely = 2 years , 40,000 KM
BYD = 3 years , 60,000 KM

Hyundai , Toyota , GM bla bla bla bla bla = 3 years , 60,000 km
Fiat = 1 Year , Unlimited Kms

Insurance is OPTIONAL here , and it doesnt follow segments , it follows a constant system , 1.5% to 3.0% of the car Price paid annualy .

Asian cars = more percentage
european and american = less percentage

nothing much the chinese are offering here , just the same or on par waranty.

In the top 100 I can see:

Rover 45,
Rover 25,
MG TF,
BMW Z3,
BMW 3 Series,
Rover 400,
Rover 75,
BMW X5,
BMW 5-series

in that order - proof that Rovers are more reliable than BMWs!

Can you please stop saying at every opertunity that Rovers are unreliable as it is not true!

Considering that the Chinese are serious about making their mark everywhere in the world, they have to start gaining successes in developing nations first. Egypt is the largest nation in the Arab world, it is a natural target for the Chinese automakers.

I am sorry Chinoy I dont have such data , but whatever the figures are , they won't be much of a saying since the Car Market here is like 0.000000001% of what it is back at China .

For laughters , let me tell you that Audi EGYPT made a Party last week , to celebrate .... ONE HUNDRED AUDI A4 sold , ( yes that's 100 ) in one year .

Total car sales in Egypt for the first half of 2006 was something like 200,000 Car or so that includes all the brands available here japanese , american , european , chinese and even martains :P ..

So even if the chinese are making Serious attempts here ,its still a very very small market .. so the chances are thier ATTENTION to Egypt might not be in the terms of sale , but it will be in terms of CKD projects , Chery & Brilliance both has assembly lines here , the Chery branded as Speranza , selling the A5 and the A6 ( Eastar ) and soon the Tiggo and V5 to follow the lines .

Brilliance assembling the Granduer and following the SPlendor

i would think Saudi arabia is the largest nation in the arab world, but a rich one, so will Chinese automakers consider penetrating the Saudi market ??

for sure these things will be provided, just a matter of time..give them a few years

sorry japan , ur wrong again

Saudi Arabia is an AMERICAN CLONE market , they hate small cars , they only drive SUVS and 4x4 and sports cars but for diffrent reasons .

they marry alot of women and each family might be consisting of more than 7 members ( national traditions and stuff )

So small cars are totally OUT OF THE WORLD there ... then there's also OIL .. so young kids prefer sports car over hatchbacks and so

I never ever saw a HATCHBAK in Saudi arabia .. for the 12 years I lived there !


Egypt is the biggest in SIZE yes , but not the biggest in car market .
I think they should focus on Egypt again like i said for ASSEMBLY , since labor wages here are almost as low as china , and the gouverment is encouraging foriegn investments in Egypt
.

In terms of sales , I think they should focus on U.A.E and such rich countries but the problem there is also that its a semi-American car market .. where BRANDS play the best part ... ppl just BRAG with brand names ( I own a Cadilac , I own a lexus . ) so its still a tough job to do

we'll see how things go

I think we are going waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off the sujbect here for many pages ....

when Lexus ls400 V8 1st came to the market in 1988/89, they were big hit in Saudi Arabia and were good sellers. Not all cars in Saudi are American, although they do sell a lot of their big ones, like the chevy Caprice, Buick roadmaster. Toyota Cressida and Crown Nissan Cedric and maxima V6 are also big sellers in the kingdom. The thing i am saying is that if the Car is good then the Saudi's will buy it. To make excuses that saudis only buy certain cars because of oil and 'national tradion' is pure lame excuses. The reason Chinese dont sell cars in the Kingdom not because of size but because the cars are not high quality enough atm, how ever this will change in the near furure when chinese cars will be seen in saudi roads

The people supplying the figures say they are from actual claims and they have no reason to give incorrect figures. If you ask the price of a warantee from these people for a BMW and equivalent Rover then I am sure you will find the Rover cheeper.

There are no Rovers which are copies of old Hondas. In all the models where there is a similarity it is because they where jointly developed and the two versions put on sale at the same time. In fact for a while the Honda Concerto was built in the Rover factory at Longbridge England so there is no way the Hondas where better since they came off the same production line. (Unless of course the Honda badge was better quality!)

"The Honda Concerto was built alongside the Rover R8 at Longbridge ... And the quickest way of getting this model onto the market, was simply rebadging the Rover 218 as a Honda Concerto... Which is exactly what happened. ... The next European Honda/Rover diesel to appear was the Accord TD, which appeared during the mid-Nineties. Nestling under the bonnet, you'll find the ubiquitous Rover L-Series engine..."
