HA, that's the first thing I thought when I read it too.

Back on topic, I own:
Honda Civic - Canadian assembly
Chevrolet Truck - American assembly
Toyota 4Runner - Japanese assembly
Acura Integra - Japanese assembly
Jeep Rubicon - American assembly

They've all been great vehicles! If there's one type of car I won't buy, it's European.

The hummer was just too low key for me.

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

I know plenty of people on both sides of the fence, however, I happen to own a Scion xB right now. I love my car. I used to have a 73 Eldorado, though. Now that car was badass! It was just kinda unreliable and a bitch to get worked on. However, I was sold on Toyota when I was riding with a guy I used to work with who had a Tercel with 360,000 miles on it. 360!!

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

My fiancee test drove those and we both loved them. I was never a fan of the looks on the outside, but the inside was AWESOME. Great mileage and deceptive acceleration.

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

xA and xB are pretty ugly...however the interior of the xB is incredible. my buddy is 6'7", and his radio station has an xB for their remotes and such. he fits and has plenty of head room.

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

Auto industry is a small drop in the economy's bucket. It doesn't make sense to buy one nationality of car over another. You should just buy what you want; buying American for the sake of buying American doesn't do the country any good.

I call them "Toaster Vans".




I owned a VW Jetta once and while it was great on gas and ran smooth with 125,000+ miles, it nickel and dimed me to death on stupid little repairs. The parts were anywhere from 3 to 5 times more than the same part on a domestic car...or more.

Since then I've owned all American cars and have had GREAT luck with them. My current Ford has over 100K on it and still running GREAT with only an alternator replacement since I've owned it...and my wife's Pontiac has 85K on it and has not had a SINGLE problem. She bought it with 8 miles on it.

The trendy thing to do is bash American, and the car magazines have jumped on the bandwagon, but if you take care of your American car...it'll be just as or MORE reliable than a foreign car and you'll save a ton of money on the maintenance and any repairs it may need.

I'll never buy another foreign car again.

But Hondas are made in Ohio!!! Yes, and while it may give Americans jobs, the profits still go back to Japan.

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

My wife had a Scion tC for a grand total of 7 months. It was a good little car, but in the end, not really what she wanted. We actually got more on the trade in than what we paid for. Thank you Scion "Pure Pricing".

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

I really want one of the new Dodge Chargers, I love those things. The local cops around here just got some and they look really bad ass, like something out of RoboCop. Maybe I'll go steal one of those...
