U.S. filing trade complaint against China for auto tariffs

Buick dealership in China

Automotive News China reports the United States is set to file a complaint with the World Trade Organization against China for tariffs on American-built vehicles. The duties cover around 80-percent of the vehicles imported from the U.S. and are expected to cost U.S. automakers $3.3 billion. Interestingly enough, General Motors and Chrysler vehicles face higher tariffs than those of other automakers due to the government bailout those manufacturers received under presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Models like the Jeep Wrangler and Grand Cherokee face tariffs of around 15 percent, while the Buick Enclave and Cadillac CTS face duties of nearly 22 percent. For comparison, the Acura TL, which is built in Marysville, Ohio, gets away with a 4.1 percent tariff. Even so, The Detroit News reports the duties are somewhat symbolic, since vehicles assembled in the U.S. are already expensive to purchase in China.

The White House, meanwhile, said it is filing the complaint because “China must play by the rules of the global trading system.”
