Come on people!! Buy American!!

In May, in the midst of the Ford Motor Co.'s "Red, White & Bold," buy-American ad campaign touting its classic Mustangs, the research firm CSM Worldwide (using statistics from the U.S. Department of Transportation) revealed that 35 percent of the 2006 Mustang's content came from overseas, and in fact, that five Honda models and seven Toyota models contained more U.S. content than the Mustang, including Toyota's Sienna minivan, which was 90 percent U.S. [Wall Street Journal, 5-11-06]

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

This is nothing new. International auto makers are very smart…they are creating jobs in rural America while the American auto makers are running to China and god knows where else. You have to respect this and this.

I'd rather walk than drive or ride in a Ford.

i heard about the hyundai plant because i used to own one. isn't it amazing that ford/gm are laying off people and all these other foreign car manufactures are hiring here in this country. ford can't blame there lack of sales on low cost of imports because they are mostly made in this country, something these so-called american car makers can't claim.

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

Our economy doesn't rise and fall with the automobile. I feel like I should reward which company makes the best product, whether it benefits this country or not. If we keep buying crap (American of foreign) that doesn't give any incentive for said parties to improve their product.

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

its crazy bc a majority of toyota's are assembled in the US, with parts made in japan[.......I am the modern man!(I hope someone freaking gets the reference)]. I saw a toyota ad, where they were advertising toyota as an american car, which is really wierd, bc alot of times toyota portrays itself as a quality foriegn car.

If you want to go really foriegn go vee-dub,mercedes, mini and mg, aston martin lol, etc.

Re: Come on people!! Buy American!!

For those of you that do buy american, lets just say that they give you a horrible deal and you sign it, don't come back the next day and do what this guy does.
