Go now ! Go now ! Go now !

I said this all the time when I had a Rover SD1 !


--------------------

so what's the pronunciation of Zhejiang - zeng dong ? zeng feng ? zhen jang ? zhen jyang ? zee jyang ? zee jang ?
why aren't chinese words translated _phonetically_ ?

What's wrong with something like "China Star" or "Lee", "Wong" etc..

Why not market the car as Ji'ao though? Honestly, it really is a nice name to pronounce (its catchy like kia and asuna), definitly Pinyin, and may not sound like something you would buy in the back of a flea market (Like a Meiya)

Companies like Dadi and Forta etc. etc. all made the choice to pick a garbage nane to market reBadged honda passports and Toyota Hilux and they are obscure for that alone, regardless if they have good qulity or not. Think about it...
How do you pronounce it ? I bet anything that isn't the phonetic spelling.

The only thing I can find is :
J-ee-ow.

It sounds like you stubbed your toe.

How about "Jeebao".
That's easy to say and spell.
Might have a problem with Chrysler though because of the similarity to "Jeep".
