I hope they never come here. They'll be bought by the same types who bought Yugos and never maintained them, adding even more rattletraps to the roads (we have enough folks who don't do proper maintenance).

They probably wouldn't pass US safety standards and the drum brakes all around are a bad idea, especially since there's no ABS (drums lock more easily than discs).
