fake in china destruction of bogus taxi fleet ordered

Black taxis are a menace, in China and elsewhere. The criminal taxi element and Chinese rip-off artists joined forces and created a whole fleet of fake taxis, Carnewschina reports.

The regulation Jettas were painted in the regulation colors of the Hefei taxi company, equipped with fake taxi meters and fake license plates.

Police in Hefei impounded the fleet of 156 taxis, and ordered their destruction. City workers received assistance of legal taxis drivers who finally could what they wanted to do for years: Take sledge hammers and smash the fake taxis to bits.

Fake license plates were torched.

Fake taxi meters went to the dogs.

  • Statikboy Those tires are the Wrong Size.
  • Mustangfast I had an 06 V6 and loved that car. 230k trouble free miles until I sold it. I remember they were criticized for being too small vs competitors but as a single guy it was the right size for me. I recall the 2.3 didn’t have a reputation for reliability, unlike the V6 and I4. I think it likely didn’t take off due to the manual-only spec, price tag, and power vs the V6 engine and the way it delivered that power. It was always fun to see the difference between these and normal ones, since these were made in Japan whereas all others were flat rock
