I am not really keen on getting such a car. Chinese cars have very little
export
here, and are not proven yet. If one looks at the recalls from top brands
like
Toyota, Lexus, General Motors and Honda, one can imagine what things will be
like from a manufacturing country known to churn out goods of questionable
quality.

I think the use of Android is partially because they don't have to pay
license fees
to Microsoft (like Ford's Sync).

However, if other car brands jump on this bandwagon, it is a good thing.
