As per insider sources there is a sort of discontent between United and the parent company Dahe in China regarding the quality of cars & United is only delivering the units based on the inventory of parts already in stock. United is now looking for possible replacement of its vendor to carry on with its 4 wheeler operations.

This is a good news as well as bad news..

Good news in a sense, we will be getting a much refined and superior Chinese product than Bravo.

Bad news, there’s another Spectra, Classic, Pride in making. People who showed confidence in buying this car will be left with no dealership network and after sales service and parts. Manufacturer should have done this discussion over quality before launching the car. If this happens, Bravo buyers would be witnessing their hard-earned money going in waste

Just the fact that they are thinking of replacing or just adding a new car shows… Read more »
