How will Chinese car names take off in America (and Europe)?

I was just wondering, how do you think westerners will accept Chinese car names(brand wise)? I know we accepted Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Subaru, etc. , but they aren't from the same language. Plus some sound kind of silly to us (Geely, Gonow,etc.). Anyway, I'd like to hear what people think, because I can't decide. Oh, and another thing, what about Chinese characters written on the car (as on most Chinese cars). :cool: :cool: :cool: :confused:

I highly doubt that Chinese cars will have Chinese names in the US. Chery for one sounds way too much "Chevy." And since their working with Chrysler, they'll probably be released as Chryslers, like GM's Aveo.

Speaking of which, I'm selling my BMW due to the nazis, never buying a Renault due to French Pacifism, never buying a Toyota, Mazda or Nissan due to Pearl Harbor, forget the Ferrari due to Mussolini, Screw Rover, MG, Triumph due to English colonization, and forget my own countries brands for the way we treated Native Americans.

Anyone have a clue what I can drive now?
LOL! You could drive a Saab, the Swedish seem pretty cool. They helped sneak a lot of Jews out of Germany during WWII, while remaining ostensibly neutral.

Sweden is home to the Vikings, the well known invaders and skillful robbers. The Swedish also constantly attacked their neighbo(u)rs.
