    Best of luck buying an "American made" Truck or car... Even if it's assembled here, the majority of the parts are from foreign countries. I read/have heard that the Toyota Tundras are more American made than the Chevy or Ford trucks. Dodges are just made in Mexico, lol.

    My wife's 2003 Honda Odyssey was built in Alabama...sure the profits may go to Japan, but it was American workers that built it...and all car manufacturer's are inter-twined...Ford/Mazda, Chevrolet/Isuzu/, Dodge/Mitsubishi..

    You guys have no idea, I'm from Detroit MI and you can see the effect on the area from people like you that are buying from none American companies. Everyone that wants to argue about it should come see in it SE MI for themselves. It’s not just the auto makers them selves, it’s the thousands of other companies that make and design parts for the big three. I won't drive foreign, if my clients aren't working, I'm not working. I'm with you American Lawn, we all should buy american.

    Now why do you think that is? Let’s think about it for minute. The big 3 can no longer afford to make the parts in America, thus the hundreds and thousands of shops/machine shops in my area closing, causing thousands of people to lose great paying jobs.
