Would I be correct in thinking the Chinese built ones are better built than the US ones(seems as 99% of stuff out of china is better than American for quality)?

There is a clear consensus that this is indeed the case. Perhaps a greater degree of consistency in the build i.e. you've a higher chance of getting a "good one". No significant build quality issues on my Fremont car but that's not the case for everyone.

Fremont cars were pot luck, I think, although I believe they got better towards the latter parts of last year. I've not really heard a bad word said against the MIC cars at all.
