Chery J1 (2013)

Cherry J1 exterior

5 Pros

  1. The cheapest new car in Australia at under $10k driveaway
  2. It does not look horrible
  3. Takes 91 unleaded
  4. 3 year warranty (thank god…)
  5. Standard alloy wheels

5 Cons

  1. 3 out of 5 star ANCAP safety rating. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, ANCAP recommends that you do not buy cars with a safety rating below 4. Apparently some insurance companies will not insure them either
  2. You cannot buy this car in some states as it does not have mandatory stability control (apparently this is coming soon…)
  3. No auto available (apparently this is also coming soon…)
  4. It received a “Shonky Award” from Choice magazine as it had roof racks that were for decorative purposes only
  5. Reports of poor build quality and pint finish

Concluding personality type: Embryo: Still slug like, but give it ten years and Chery (as a brand) will probably be worth considering
