There's no equivalent in China to America's array of lemon laws, forcing owners of massively defective new vehicles to exorcise their demons in other ways, whether it's sledgehammers or dragging a broken Volvo through the streets with an ox.

According to CarNewsChina, the Volvo's owner tried setting things straight with his dealer in Hangzhou, who refused to take back the defective XC60. That led to this procession through the city's streets, well covered by local media. Now that Volvo is owned by China's Geely, it should be a lot easier to find a person in power who can smell what's behind the ox.
