Made in the usa???

I have been getting a lot more anal with what I buy in the last year or two. Can anyone tell me if my 2000 XJ was made in America or not. If so i won't ever let it die because you can't buy an American made vehical now. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

The VIN# should tell you where it was made.

Every XJ ever was made in Toledo, Ohio I believe.

You can get a build sheet instantly from Compnine.com (exactly the same as what Chrysler would send you) if there's anything else you'd like to run your VIN for.

Unless you happened to get one someone imported it was made in Toledo, OH. If it was imported (extremely unlikely) it was built in China, Argentina, or Venezuela.

For me, a quality product is a quality product no matter what nation the humans who made it call home (there's a bit of "fine print" and exceptions regarding this statement though), but to each his own.

I'm curious about your claim that you can't buy an American made auto anymore though. How do you figure that? There are still autos being made all over the US by US companies today. GM, Ford, and Tesla all come to mind as US companies making vehicles in the US. Hell, you can still technically get a newly-assembled (in Texas) DeLorean today--and they've made mention of their intention to provide an electric version someday, too.

You can count Toyota, Honda, Mercedes, BMW, Kia, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Mazda and Lincoln on that list as well.

I assume the OP cares if the company is American-owned as well which is why I removed Chrysler from the list. Fiat (Italian) holds over 50% of Chrysler's shares.

If the OP only cares about American MADE, yes, the list grows considerably. Tons of cars are MADE in America.

P.S. Lincoln = Ford

I think he is of the foolish mindset that anything not made within the CONUS is bad or not of high quality.

Buying used American cars and driving them for a long time doesn't keep anybody working...

Maybe that's not the OP's concern. I know it's not mine. Let's not start jumping to conclusions and bashing the OP. It was not my intention to question his/her reasoning nor judge him/her for it. I was merely confused about

most of these company ship their parts here and they are assemlbed in the US

i believe subaru is just starting to stamp steel metal here for north american vehicles only.

Yeah, I guess if the OP cares about more than just assembly and/or who owns the company, then he/she shouldn't even be driving most XJs. The AW4 auto trans is a Japanese part. The AX15 is also. Renix years had French manual transmissions (in addition to the Renix system being by Renault, a French company, and American Bendix).

If the OP's XJ is a manual, then it at least has an New Venture Gear manual trans made in Indiana.
Or if it's a 4-cyl automatic, then the trans is a Chrysler, and I believe that Chrysler was solidly American back then.



I guess the OP should clarify what they mean by "made" in order to get the most comprehensive answer possible.
