    1. rmwtsou this guy goes around the whole China to find such a car, then show it to tell that’s what happened in China, well just believe it, he need views and likes

  1. Yeah I see, you living in China, taking advantages there, people being nice to you, then you use English to laugh on them, that’s you, the way you use to get views and likes. Really cool. Keep doing that

    1. A lot of his videos talk about the good points, like the beauty, convenience of walking distance food, and some parts of the culture. Has given me greater respect for the people. His critiques are what everyone thinks about the nation but in a much nicer way. I mean everyone knows about the knock off, cheap products from China.

  4. My man you are on their own turf! Those mafackas will scam you of their bootleg luxury cars. Specially on car brands. They think that you’re stupid lol that is why non of the China brand cars never made it to America because of safety concerns, great video my man as always!

  5. The whole country is one big fraud. Everything is fake. Nothing is what it appears to be or claims to be. Once you get passed the shiny facade, there’s nothing behind it. They are swimming in very dangerous waters taking on the United States which IS the real thing. If they continue to believe their own scam they’re going to get clobbered.

  6. Way you want other peoples to respect the rules and law same way you need to respect chines rules and laws so shut up or go back if you don’t like it there

  7. Is it easy to obtain a driver’s license in China? And what about insurance and registration? Could you possibly do a video on that, and if not maybe text me back and explain. Thank you very much from subscriber

  8. I wish you did a bit of research. That is a Maxus Istana. A licensed version of the Ssangyong Istana, which is also a licensed version of the Mercedes Benz MB100. So yup, its chinese made van and they replaced the grill from an MB100. And it uses an MB engine.

    1. Aldrich Federick Villareal That’s correct. The early Ssangyong Istana did have Mercedes badges on the front.
      Most Ssangyong have Mercedes licenced engines.

  9. Long live china 🇨🇳 and come on the poor guy doesn’t have enough money to buy a merc so he just bought the logo and put it on his van. Or just because it’s good for business. Tourist bait something similar to click bait.

  10. They do it because it looks nicer to them. And one must be really stupid to think it is a real mercedes. Or even if it is an old mercedes, that looks like that car, it has nothing to do with the safety

  11. Part of the reason why people in China are doing this is because the society is too judgmental and classest. So even if a China brand is SUPERIOR performing to a European or American brand, the dumb Chinese people will boycott the Chinese brand in favor of the EU and US brand simply because where it was made. So companies figure why be creative if my consumers are this ignorant? Just copy the big names and make ez money.

  12. Even chinese brand cars have the complete design of foreign cars. Steal the back from one brand, steal the look of the front from another brand and bamm you have your chinese car who looks like a Porsche at the front and like a mercedes at the back.

  13. Chinese are Cheaters ‼️‼️‼️
    They are number 2 in the world In economy ‼️‼️‼️‼️they are mad when people said Chinese no longer a developing Country ‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️ Cheaters Are Chinese ‼️‼️‼️‼️

  14. Mershitses and Bust My Wallet BMW’s are ALL SHITTY CARS!!!! Same goes for emmission evading VW and crappy worthless Audi engineering.. Buy REAL QUALITY JAPANESE vehicles!!!!!!

    1. Joe Goés depends what model you are on about, the a class have the renaults in them I think it’s a specific a class model tho, the c class I am paying for I am not too fussed about the engine it’s more about not driving a fucking tin can down the road, the quality inside a merc on the higher end models can’t be matched by fucking Renault or seat or any other country’s cars, the comfort is unmatched and no materials fucking bouncing about when your going over 50mph

    2. Go On Seb yes that is correct I can’t, I drive a 03 Vauxhall Astra and couldn’t be more happy with it as it’s never let me down. I worked on newer Mercs and they use Renault’s engines in them and a few toys inside and sell them at premium prices.

  15. Actually I just watched a documentary about China defence force
    It seems they have copey everthing and have copy in a real cheap way
    Even there fighter aircraft are not very reliable

  16. By copying Mercedes logo now Chinese car companies own more then 10% share in Mercedes-Benz.

    They copied Volvo and now they took over entire Volvo company.

    China is a slow poison for all the reputed companies who has name, idea, goodwill etc.

    India is the only solution against China’s fake any copy paste industry. At least India has copyright laws and one can take action against government policies etc.

  17. Mercedes built a van for the Pacific market called the “Mercedes MB 100 from 1999-2004. The van in the video was a Saic Maxus Istana, which is
    based off of a Ssangyoung Istana.
    So they took an MB100 grill, and didn’t even fasten it properly. Yes, Mercedes licensed their brand name to Ssangyoung. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it?

  18. I have to say it was a CLICKBAIT ! you just made us watch this video for NOTHING interesting at all 😐😐😐 !!! of course u needed to explain some for the topic you chose but let’s be honest it was one of the most worthless videos YouTube ever recommended to me 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

  19. Winston,what part of China was it,and by the way, when did you and Laowhy86 go back to China?
    Conquering northern China was such an adventure,will you and your friends do it again,that was really
    awesome.

  20. Chinese never think whats the next innovation, they just copied and sell and they pretend that original, they make more money than the original because of the cheap crap.

  21. What if you keep and maintain a chinese car but only use it for semi long distance travel inmainland China but use a bicycle or motorbike as daily transportation?

  22. Hi buddy! Thank you for all the information you are giving us. Speaking of fake Heineken beer, it is happening in Philippiness too. Please help straightening up the thruth and free people from being taken in. Love your channel brither….

  23. We are sick and tired from your business man’s whos bringing from china made in china bad quality products in our countries.
    Do not bring in the United States please, we not going to buy it.///////////////////////

  24. Typical of China , conniving cheap crap designed to deceive,these people really need taking out, and hopefully their economy destroyed,it is essentially at the end of the day stealing by deception. Something the Chinese excel at, albeit knock offs or stealing western technology.
    Honesty is not something that appears in their dictionary.Garbage
