for example saic and vw, if saic wasnt teaming up with gm and vw etc etc, you wouldnt see a single buick or vw down the chinese streets. almost every car running down the streets in china, are made in china.
The car production output in the US remains the same; Japanese and Korean transplants made up for GM and Ford output declines.

Yet Americans are crying the death of US auto industry at the hands of Japanese. Why?

But the fact is they are not as ambicious as asians (chinese koreans and japanese)
You can leave Chinese out of above statement.

The chinese auto makers like SAIC, once mature enough to spread its wings will pull the plug on VW and GM. Without a chinese partner, they cant produce a single car in china.
Chinese aren'te the least bits of GM's problem; Toyota is.

Do expect the joint ventures winding down in china in the future
There is no hint of foreigners losing their 75% present market share grab in China.

Just as Chinese automakers are in a hurry to expand their capacity in China, so are foreigners. Chinese auto market is just like that of US auto market; lots of brands, strong foreign brands and weak domestic brands. Even worse, Chinese domestic brands enjoy no customer royalty that US brands do among certain segment of population.
