    All the American car companies use shitloads of foreign made parts. GM and Chrysler were bailed out of bankruptcy on our dime. Chrysler was owned by Daimler Benz, and is now owned by Fiat. Of the four 2018 Ford vans at work, three have been back to the dealer for issues, including TPMS failures (other than wheel sensors) and defective fuel senders, among other shit. All started within less than 5K miles.

    My wife's Corolla was built in California. Besides the airbag recall, which is the biggest in automotive history, the only part recalled on my wife's car in 265K+ miles was the ECM. Made by Delco (GM). It failed dead in my driveway.

    "American made", especially when in comes to cars, means very little these days. When I'd talk cars with people, and they ask if I work on cars, I'd say: "Not anymore, I have three Toyotas." I've since sold my '93 Camry, and have a Chevy Colorado with 228K+ on it. Nothing but wear and tear, but I plan on keeping it for a while longer.

          And amazingly these failing sensors come from places like Mexico and Asia,
          where slave labor is the norm. And YET they have the balls to sell pick ups for $90,000 .if someone put together a 1980 style pickup with no frills Nd no electronics. They would make a killing ,now we have to buy a Luxury Pickup .

            Cherry bomb!!

            Haha jk.

            One of my employees just slapped a Borla on his BRZ and it sounds really good. Loud enough to turn heads but not loud enough to piss off the neighbors. Smooth and throaty.

              Camrys never used to look great, but the current one does. I once owned an older model. It was extremely reliable. It looked boring, and was boring to drive. However, it had a conservative, and fiscally responsible look, which I needed at the time. If you are asking other people to spend their hard earned money on your services, some assume you are good if you drive a flashy car. However, some do not, and will respect you more if you did not spend a lot of money on a flashy car.

                      You can' deny that the brand is pushing every automaker to electrify their lineups sooner than later. That was elon musks goal from day 1. Not to be the biggest brand but to act as a catalyst.

                        Id go with Tesh at Monkey Wrench in queens. He makes custom exhaust and they don’t sound like some of the shit exhaust you see/hear on the road now a days. If your nephew has Instagram tell him to look up monkeywrenchinc.

                          Elon Musk is a huckster. His brand is PC garbage heavily propped up by federal funds. Electric cars rely on the notion that fossil fuels are not used to generate electricity.

                            This SUV is the most ‘American-made’ car — and No. 2 isn’t even a U.S. brand

                              Yes - it is a complicated issue with the numerous multinational companies owning numerous car companies.

                              I think were need to focus more on where the jobs are, and where the natural resources used to make the cars are coming from, than the car's badge.
