Don't panic too much mate, people used to say the same about goods manufactured in Japan too.
It is true that goods from Japan WERE crap, but they have turned their quality control around so much that they are rated very highly these days.
It would stand to reason that China will end up the same.
I have to agree though that most goods made in China stuff is crap, and is generally a cheap inferior copy of someone else's hard work.
I don't believe that Ford would be stupid enough to allow that to happen with their vehicles.
China incidentally, is probably the fastest growing country in the world with regards to catching up to, and even exceeding world standards with manufacturing.
I saw an article on the tele the other night about China, and the population figures made my teeth rattle.
There is so much opportunity over there for a manufacturer such as the Ford Motor Company it is just not funny.
They know this, and are starting to jump in before the others do.
It is also happening in Russia as well, as (I think it was RPO83) an article was posted here not long back.
