Thanks for editing the Review, I just can't imagine anyone without patience playing this game.

By the way, in one of the versions there was a bug, that cost you to start loosin money fast! If you start loosing money just check the middle east (even if you have no factory or office there, you'll see you're paying huge sums for advertizing). This can actually work to your advantige, because you can set it so you'll be paying a negative amount (lets say -1.521$), meaning they will actually be paying you and you'll end up having more money. Too bad you can't just tipe the ammount you want (you must use the -/+ keys)!

advice, coming from one who has never played it, would be that if you sell only 9 cars and make 1000, its time to change you selling techniques

Try selling the cars in other regions (you need a sell office, not the factory). Also - what kind of a car is it? How much did it score on the tests? are you advertising? Note that some tipes are just not selling well (vans need a really long time to catch on). Read what it says about your cars in the newspapers (they often tell you, what you should improve). If nothing else works, that means that you just made a really unpopular car!

k: TIP: The car that computer generates you at the begining of the game is the best car that you can have at the beggining of the game.

A: I did try selling in other areas, they didn't sell...
B: My best scored around 97%, most are above 90%
C: They never talk about my cars...

Chances are, you aren't building enough cars. Try adding more production lines at your factory or upgrading it (Adding more lines is the cheapest and fastest way to increase production.) Also try lowering the price $50 at a time and see if it helps.
