I wish all car companies go bankrupt and be replaced by Chinese brands. They deserve it. Happened with phones, with exception of Samsung that also must go bankrupt. Nothing wrong with Chinese Volvo cars or Chinese Nokia phones though.

Because it can't get worse than now, when everything is controlled by USA/EU.

Just pointing out that Toyota, then VW, then Hyundai/Kia are the top three companies for car manufactures in the world. Hardly a Monopoly by the USA / EU.

Further, while Volvo is enjoying a renaissance of sorts, the bones of a solid car company were there when Ford owned them; they just didn't have the $$$ to float the R&D towards building the brand.

While trying to avoid being political - China pretty much DOES own most production of consumer goods...how has that worked out for factories in North America? Giving them our last ounce of meaningful factory work would absolutely gut the North American economy - forcing the US to borrow MORE from China - which is hardly a benefit to any person on this continent.
