China's auto market isn't as strong as it looks

Auto shows like this one in Guangzhou still attract many prospective buyers, but demand may not be as strong as it looks.

GUANGZHOU, China   Something is amiss in the Chinese auto market.

     The numbers still sparkle. Sales of new cars in 2015 rose 4.7% to 24.59 million vehicles -- the world's highest tally for the seventh consecutive year. The figure far exceeds the 17.47 million cars sold in the U.S., the second-largest market.
