"Not bad, not bad at all" is not something you said to yourself, just like "I am very smart", its stupid, inmature and nobody takes you seriously after you kept saying this kinda shit

Tell it to someone who cares, to be honest I wouldn't give a rats arse, a rats arse is very little. Let he who has ears hear, he who has eyes see and he who has hands take the knowledge I pour out each week on this thread.

What is stupid and immature is side-tracking and going on and on about someone's identity, attitude and credibility after you fail to disprove any of his arguements yet instead get your own self disproved, now that is immature and stupid and actually very very desperate and sad.

Please stop talking BS and show me

If volvo was doing well they wouldn't have had ford as a parent company
Bottom line volvos have sucked for a long time
I've owned 3 240s which ran forever
But I had an 850t company car that was in the shop more than it was on the road.
Then the cars started looking very feminine
Guys buy 300hp turbo cars , make it look masculine
They lost their way and the chinese can't fix that

Bottom-line is Volvo is now profitable.

You think the consumers can be easily fooled by your words alone?

Grow up!

Today we the consumers knows exactly what we wanted even before we set foot in the showroom.

I have just examined and test drive a Dongfeng-Citroen DS5 sedan and I must say, I am totally impressed by the quality of this made in China car. The paintwork for one is immaculate for one, not to mention the pretty interior. On the road, the car is simply impressive. Very European or French. My other Citroen can actually run on 3 wheels.

SO who are you fooling this time?

It will be stupid for Volvo HQ not to approve building cars in China. It is the trend for larger international auto makers.

Moreover, Volvo is losing in all markets outside China, and thus it was sold to Geely (a Chinese firm) as a means of financial bailout.

Can Volvo in Europe refuse what the boss/owner wants to do? It would be professionally unethical and shameless to hinder the trend of making cars in China.

Chinese automotive makers also have invested in French car makers, and set up R&D offices in Detroit and California in recent years.

As a result, China's know-how and track record in car making are improving remarkably.

Buy a Tata Nano. It's good for you. Volvo cars are too expensive for the Malaysian consumers

I don't think the Chinese will buy a Volvo made in China. They would buy a Jaguar or a Land Rover. As for the Europeans, they would not pay the same price for a Volvo made in China.

The Chinese do make a difference between a Tiger rice cooker made in Japan and a rice cooker made in China.

So Tata Nano is your dream car! But have you test it yet.

You show your ignorance about folks in other countries by saying this and that out of your own imagination. Nothing factual.

We Malaysian never need to show off as we do not have the same inferiority complex like you.

LOL But if you agree to sign up as a ladyboy in one of the show in Hadyat and is vote as one of the popular ladyboy in there, an associate of my friend can fixed you up with your dream car as a bonus but you must work until your ass catches fire to earn that.

Being opinate does not make you right!
For instance Indian Malaysian likes Jaguar but "Chinese" Malaysians loved flaunting their "Bentley" and everybody loved Mercedes, BMW and Audi.

Based on what?

Your imagination or your usual biased mindset.

LOL I see many Malaysians driving the latest VW Golf GTI and most of them did not even know or bother that they were imported from China. VW is VW.

Only a stupid guy would seek a product that has already price itself out of the market called Tiger when there are so many equally good products like Panasonic, Midea, Haier, Samsung, etc Not many consumer in this part of the world know a brand called tiger. They think it is a Thai brand and indeed Tiger was once made in Thailand.

Even Jackie Chan doesn't want to buy Chinese made TV sets.(see 3rd paragraph starting from bottom). Ask Jackie Chan what rice cooker he has.

Jackie don't do domestic shopping himself, he has no idea the spec for his tv or how many inches it is. Never mind about the rice cooker, he hasn't cook himself for a long while. Either way, most electronic stuffs are made in China, regardless of whether they are Samsung, Lenovo, Sony, sharp etc . My best choice for rice cooker is tatung from Taiwan.

He however does Chinese antique shopping and ancient structure or properties.

Fancy buying a bamboo bicycle from Vietnam? It is not cheap.

You may ignore these biased anti-Chinese nuts.

They won't attack Volvo and they would continue to praise Volvo products if the firm is not Chinese owned.

But now it is a subsidiary of Chinese firm Geely. Many stupid people are so unethical. When they try to look for a buyer for what they do not want, they promote it as something best in the world. Once you have bought it, and it is no longer theirs, they begin to put it down.

That is the same way BBC, CNN, and British and American politicians treat Hong Kong.

When it was British, they praised it. When it was returned to China, they smear it even the government there today is more lenient than the British colonial government towards dissenting voices.

If you buy cheap products made by Haier, Midea, instead of making rice for you the rice cooker will explode in your face. Buy a Tiger rice cooker and your guests willl be impressed and praise you for your good taste.
