I've been to China 4 times in my life...all to the same city,Guangzhou,a huge city an hour north of Hong Kong.The two most recent visits have been in the last couple of years and both times I was stunned to see how many Buicks (yes,BUICKS) I saw there.More Toyotas and Kias to be sure but many,many Buicks.GM must be doing something right in China to have that large a market share there.

...GM Shanghai has two plants elsewhere in China, where it makes Buicks and Chevrolets, and has a total production capacity of 1.2 million cars. While it employs about 8,000 people in China, only a few are Americans...
...Having been deprived of so much for so long, China’s consumers accept clogged roads and bumper-to-bumper traffic as a sign of progress. And that’s keeping the assembly lines in Shanghai busy turning out Buicks. The plant runs two 10.5 hour shifts per day, nearly seven days a week, and can produce nearly 90 cars per hour...
