No they do want US cars as well as many other US goods, even the common people. Not only are they seen as better quality it's a sign of wealth. The reason for the 25% tariff was them trying to protect their native car industry because so many people want American (or other foreign) cars. These tariffs only served to embolden the image that a person owning a foreign car was wealthy enough they could afford one, achieving the opposite of the goal.
