    Ford news of new Models in China .

    But lost in all that failure was a surprising success story: General Motors had become the No. 1 automaker in the world's largest auto market -- China.
    GM is hardly the only Western success story in China, of course. Archrival Volkswagen's (VLKAY) sales are a close second to GM's, and global giants like Toyota (TM) and Honda (HMC) have strong presences as well. A latecomer to the party, Ford (F), has invested more than $5 billion in local factories in an effort to catch up -- and it's off to a good start: Sales of its just-introduced Focus have been brisk.

      a few years ago. Sure most of the time they review like $250,000+ "super cars." But at times they will review a Ford or GM. They often cost like $18,000 and get 70 MPG. These are not hybrids. The are diesel. But alas, we can't buy them here in the US.

      It always stuns me when folks say well Ford or GM can't build the kind of cars that get great, great gas mileage. But alas THEY ALREADY DO, we just can't buy them here.

      Nobody has ever been able to explain this to me ....

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
