Not under the circumstances presented by the OP.

If I was staying in China and I could get one really cheap or after 5-10 years in the US market and they turn out to last pretty well then maybe.

Take a smell of any Black Rubber Products made in China with few exceptions.. ARRRRRGH !!!!
These fumes should be investigated by the EPA.
Go to Home Depot and check the Door Mat products.

I just recently purchased a Top of the line, all stainless steel outboard motor carrier with small neumatic China made tires.
They smell so strong I cannot even leave it inside the Garage even after 3 months venting.
It's in everything even including small black rubber gaskets used in China made sink drains.

I bought a hot water bottle from an upscaled local small town drug store. Yup..Made in China. Fill it with hot water and it will chase you out of the house. I returned it and let them know. (for what it's worth)

I Ordered a Beautiful non smelling one Made In Germany. Absolutely Perfect.
Once you smell it you will pick up on it and recognise it everywhere.

Pet Food
Sheet Rock
Rubber Products

What Else ???????

Why in the world would I want to buy one of their Cars.
