You'd better buy your 6 soon...

...before they raise their prices 20%, or more.

Or worse, they leave the U.S. market completely...

It does. The higher the percentage of affected Chinese-sourced materials, the higher the tariff impact will be.

As bad as it was for my CX-3 to get totaled, I'm sort of relieved that I got the 6 when I did. There's some twisted logic in there, I know... lol

This would only affect people who buy a new car. Buying it used would bring that price down massively.



Let other fool take the huge tax of a new car, so you can buy them used later on, that's how it has always worked.

The sooner we stop relying on China for so much manufacturing the better. I would gladly pay 25% more for anything NOT made in China. The world did a very stupid thing by giving so much free technology to China. They stole their way to the top in manufacturing. Don't forget that China is a communist country and all business is controlled/partially owned by the government. How do you think you get free shipping on Ebay from all that China garbage?

I'll have you my headlights were designed in China, watch out.


I admire the Chinese. They came from nothing, learned from the British empire and became the most powerful nation in the world, meanwhile, we have people in Africa and Haiti who can barely wipe their own arses.


I, for one, welcome our new Chinese overlords.
