I think China maybe the only country on the world of Japanese cars cannot dominate market,
political reason or technical reason?
no lah, Korea also no Japanese market,
China mostly is political reason, Chinese hate Japanese due to WWII and Diaoyu island disputing,
another reason is Japanese cars almost all NA, Chinese were mislead that TC got good FC and emission by local media,
3rd reason Chinese Japanese cars all were made in China with their joint venture, quality and safety feature compromised a lot,
so in Chinese impression Japanese cars all are thin can, they dare not to buy due to driving on high accident rate road, even if it is much cheaper than conti cars
