American cars are struggling in America
Mo City Beau exactly not just in China
Notice they left out Tesla? Tesla just completed their Chinese factory and have orders waiting. The title should have said "traditional American car companies are struggling in China..."
@Aussie2u No, they didn't leave out Tesla. Someone wasn't paying attention.
And for good reason lol they deserve to suffer for making garbage.
There is a grammar mistake in your sentence. You have to use the letter "r" and not the word "is".
It's the warranties. US car? 36000 miles. Japanese? 100k. The warranty speaks of your faith in your own product. Small warranty. Little faith. That's my take on US cars not selling in the US at least.
Not really lol. Ford F 150 best seller. Ram pickups are doing better than ever.
Lincoln is back and killing all the pathethic European SUV's.
So please...stop talking out of ur ass eh?
these American cars are built in the US with some parts from foreign neighbors , therefore cost more to produce and are unionized. While in the other side of the world labor is done for cheap
@Aussie2u Tesla has it's own competition with Chinese hybrid and electric brands like BYD.
US car are like their president they don't last long enough to live up to their name
Mo City Beau they used to dominate the Chinese market, but consumer soon realize the quality is sub par.
How? Ford F series pickups have outsold every other car for the last 36 years in America...
@Aussie2uthey built factory that's true. what about orders? anyone buying yet?
CNBC: Why Ford Is Falling Behind In China
Reality: Why American Cars Are Falling Behind in America
Ford outside English North America is now (really a long time) seen as Ford-Werke GmbH company out of Cologne, Germany.
That's not very accurate. Ford and GM all has the top selling trucks in the US. And are the most profitable vehicles for all U.S.
Actually CNBC is worried about Chinese Currency in compare to US currency. I think Chinas populations.
@Luis H Isn't this about cars? who was talking about trucks?
@guy proulxexactly, which misses the point entirely. When you measure all vehicles sold in the U.S., Ford and GM dominates the pickup truck market. Yes their sedans don't sell as well, but that's not really what Ford and GM cares about.
@Luis H Their trucks are junk just like their cars, blind brand loyalty to the big 2 and Fiat from clueless and ignorant Americans is the only reason they are still in business and multi billion dollar bailouts from tax payers and multi billion dollar bank loans lol
Now, seems that their is a grey market import of a Ford Mustang knockoff coming from China with a BMW VAMOS engine, that is faster than the original Mustang and faster than a Cobra, but it competes with a Ferrari.
Japanese and German brands conquer the planet and can never be beaten financially economically or any way in value. They truly never lost the war ever car on the earth is demanded Japanese or German
The most reliable part on a GM vehicle...CHECK ENGINE SOON lite
Used car dealer here... that's funny
@aguyandhiscomputer yup...I'm a Chevy guy...first It's the water pump...then the head gasket...then the rocker panels start rusting
lmao yep, my car has had it on since I bought it over a year ago lol
The only thing that runs good on an American vehicle is the owner's mouth
Both German and Japanese cars increased market share, while American cars lost. Same result as in USA. What's new?
American cars don't have quality that the Chinese people wanted.
@TheMiddleKingdomthe chinese buy their own chinese brands tho, i think it's not about quality
TheMiddleKingdom but Chinese don’t care about quality
@CengizhanMilfhuntürkHave you ever seen American cars on the street of Hong Kong, Macau, Bangkok, Singapore and other major East Asian and Southeast Asian countries' cities ? Most of them are Japanese made cars.
@crunch9876The Chinese do care about quality whatever they buy, including cars.
crunch9876 The American-brand cars built in China generally have better quality control than ones built in US or Mexico. And people are expecting the Chinese version Model 3 will be better in quality than us model 3.
在中国生产的美国品牌车要比在美国和墨西哥制造的质量更好。但是人们希望中国版的Model 3要比美国版的Model 3质量还要好。
@TheMiddleKingdomthe chinese take short cuts on everything. they are known for making the shittiest products on earth.
TheMiddleKingdom wanna try nuclear weapon made in china donnot use any phone pc car tv speaker they are all made in china and now you just like use shittest product.you doesnot have to use it！just live like 90s
MadScientist China may not care about the quality of products it exports but Chinese consumers are very quality conscious.
TheMiddleKingdom American cars are popular in China
Ford is also dead in all South East Asian markets with the exception of the Philippines (probably due to historical issues). Its sold very few cars in Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.
@TheMiddleKingdomno, Tesla is not bad though
@Ken Yup Tesla 's quality is not up to par, like Lexus or Toyota.
@TheMiddleKingdom except, they love Buick
@Nathan GovanoThat what I heard, I also know that the Chinese made Buick is much better than the American made Buick. in turn of quality.
They will stop making the Buick LaCrosse by the end of 2019 for the North American market including other Chevrolet and Cadillac sedans. Volvo’s quality went downhill when it was owned by Ford and then it was sold to China. Nissan used to be good vehicles that runs like tanks until it merged with Renault. Subaru is a decent brand. Lexus and Acura are better Japanese brands than BMW. Ford stops making sedans now. That is why Ford is not keeping up in their automotive industry.
@Ronaldo Seven Correct. Once Ford stopped making cars in U.S., it lost all of its credibility in China. Don't know whether this is true elsewhere.
@MadScientistWhy everyone on earth buy chinese products then?
The Trusty Sidekick
@MadScientistAnd the US buys the most Chinese products in the world. Now what does that tell you?
@The Trusty Sidekick because our country was sold out by the wealthy elite, partly through the trade deals that allow china to sell their cheaply made crap without paying any tariffs or even shipping charges. They exploit their citizens by paying slave wages and then are allowed to sell their slave labor crap over here. American companies cant compete with slave wages. This doesnt mean china's products arent crap, they are.This was all done so the few american middle men could make a few extra bucks. China is a hostile country that doesnt respect human rights. Very scary country.
The Trusty Sidekick
@MadScientistYes it's always someone else's fault. You didn't answer my question. Why do Americans keep buying cheap Chinese goods despite knowing what China does to it's own people?
Vela van laack
Exactly! You just can’t push people to buy crap
@crunch9876 U are being unfair as usual, in every country that produces there are always steps up the.ladder in terms of quality. Yes.China has produced a lot of low quality products.The truth is all of the cars manufacturers in the world has done so, but with time they have all stepped up their game. CHINA is no different , as time goes.by their cars will get better.As.a matter of FACT their quality has improved a lot in many areas. The CHINESE are not fools . Remember when the JAPANESE started to make cars the US and Europe bashed them , now their cars are sold all around the globe. Every thing improves with time and good research so stop your bashing on CHINA. They too will be producing great cars in the very near future.
@TheMiddleKingdom Those who hate China will always have bad things to say. Truth is America is not so great as what they like to portray . They are just like what Hollywood produces, fantasy n illusions,plain make believe. This is why they believe they are so superior, when in FACT They are very ordinary
@MadScientist Then U are the most foolish people on the planet EARTH. U buy and consume so many things made in CHINA . Truth be told they are improving at a very fast rate. Plus they provide goods that the poor of the world can afford. Quite unlike what Americans do ,they over price and over rate their products. All this to rob the poor, nothing more. It's their modern style of SLAVERY.
@errol kongYes, I agreed with you, especially, the Anglo World, AKA, the Five Eyes countries and some of the English speaking countries that the British colonized them before, like India and even the Hong Kongers....they are even demonized their own race, such as the mainland Chinese and oversea Chinese. I don't like the Hong Kongers whatsoever. Less than 28 years from now, Hong Kong will be taken full controlled by the People Republic of China regardless what is happening right now on the Hong Kong political situations.
@errol kongYes, America and other Western countries can't live without quality, cheap made products by the Chinese. I don't understand why the Chinese have to sell their rare earth minerals to Western countries when they are also need them, after all, China has 1.4 people that need those rare earth minerals.
Better question is why wouldn't they be falling behind in china
Get lower social credit by supporting a foreign company.
Juan Guzman ford and gm just making 3 cylinders trash, volkswegon is not. Vw is just better, and vw is still doing good.
13 mins video but never mentioned Ford's quality problem...Ford's brand reputation is ruined after numerous quality issues and now Ford cars are perceived unreliable...
Hello, you know the company of Chang An maybe is a really terrible partner, many foreign auto companies are struggling in China auto industry such as Ford, Japanese MAZIDA, also there are several companies which have closed down in China, such PSA Peugeot Citroen Group, Japanese SUZUKI.
From cars to motorcycles, who stop the oil leaks on brand new Harley-Davidson motorcycles while Harley-Davidson still had oil leaks on their brand new motorcycles?
Answer: Chinese knockoffs of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle and they are more reliable than the original.
Embargoman Harley-Davidson isn’t exactly the best benchmark for quality..
@Happy Cupcake at least VW gives you 4 cylinders, so yeah, they are
@Happy Cupcake if VW is no better why they gained significant marketshare in China while the Americans suffered...?
@BandomBeviews So why Chinese knock off of an American product turns out better quality than the original?
Embargoman They probably use newer moulds or something like that, I don’t really know
"There's nothing American in a Chinese car, but there are a lot of things Chinese in an American car."
- Ancient Chinese proverb
It wasnt always the case though! If it wasnt imo for Toyotas cheap ass plastic appearance, American cars woulda still kept their 70s-80s style.
There is literally nothing Chinese in Chinese product other than bad quality. They literally copy everything in the world. They even copied cities. Google it.
@Mahir MahirBYD sells well. People with colored glasses can't see their flaws, they will only complain about why others took your job.
It is like 10 year old "ancient"? Really funny.
Your comment could be true could be a lie because only way to know is to take it apart but if your using stolen technology well.... but in the end both cars are crap world wide.
@中国是我爹, Yea right your government donated hundreds of police cars to costa rica and less than year all the cars were already trashed so all the cars being in used in our police force are japanese.
Fuel Economy didn't you know that China was a part of the automobile industry since ancient times?
Amateurs copy, professionals steal. China isn't doing anything Japanese companies and the U.S. companies haven't done. Most technology, most of what China uses has no patent protection, so its free for anyone to use. Chinese, more than anyone, have abused a system of trust that existed in universities, and for that they will pay by being cut out of a lot of research or regarded with suspicion.
They are just repeating their mistakes they've been making in the US in China.
Terrible fuel economy, outdated design, public hostility toward American brands.
There is no hostility towards american brands.
It's not the brand it's the morons behind it. Over inflated ego's & disconnected from reality.
@idpro83well in China, yes there are. Maybe not as much as the other two factors but it's certainly one of the reasons.
the fact is...US Cars are falling behind everywhere
A poorly timed intro, an imperfect partnership, & intense competition have all left Ford in the dust in China. Saved you guys 13 minutes.
All American cars ever do is FAIL EVERYWHERE..........I wonder WHEN they were ever succeeding. Scotty Kilmer needs to watch this video.
Calm down buddy, dont make me go all american on you.
Buick is doing well in China. I like the new 2018 Buick LaCrosse, and even though I drive a 2018 Nissan Rogue SUV.
@Ronaldo SevenAmerican luxury brands are thriving too, so much that Cadillac and Lincoln are taking customers from the german brands like BMW, Audi and Mercedes Benz. I've seen on a few accounts BMW & Audi owners ditching them for lincolns and Cadillacs
They were succeeding in the 50’s when they had no other challengers lol.
Ronaldo Seven Nissan Rogue is a horrible vehicle.
@Edward MyersCadillacs are trash. They're as money pit as Chevys. American cars have no quality control, unlike Japanese like Toyota or Honda (of course including the 'upper class' version like Lexus and Acura). Fix the damn quality first before wandering why your cars are not selling.
S. I'm not anti-America. In fact I like it so much that I find it to be a wasteful that although the designs are generally great, they won't last 150,000 miles when daily driven.
He's too busy tucking his celica into bed.
@Edward MyersI don't know much about design and stuff, but they're more efficient nowadays, and able to produce a decent amount of horse power compared to the old days. There are definitely changes and researches put into designing the engines. Problem is that they don't over-engineer their cars if they can't make it to last long. More features is good, however if the lifespan dramatically decreases because of it, I prefer buying the more reliable cars.
Edward Myers they didn’t have import competition In the 50’s celebrities had to buy American cars. Japan simply builds better cars.
@Triparadox CliffordExcept Japanese cars are awful at gas mileage. The 4runner gets worse than my older Chevy Suburban.
@JackWhen it comes to gas mileage there are various things to consider: weight, design, engine size, turbo kit, transmission, etc.
Someone tell Ford they can't survive on pick up trucks alone. I love this car brand, hopefully they won't go under !
12:01 the way that old man looks into the giant-sized F150's window tells me the whole story: trucks are as alien to china as freedom of internet.
11:40 Look at the discrepancy between the trunk lid and the car. No wonder Ford is not preferred
G o d Lo ve
I never dreamed American car and I will never unless miracle occurs
Just pause at 8:35, a random shot of the street of Shanghai, you can see 6 GM cars but only 1 Ford. And in these 6 GM cars, 4 of them are Buick.
