My dad worked for Chryco for 15 years, as did the fathers and family of many kids from my hometown. When the American auto companies refused to address their quality issues, the public started buying foreign built vehicles. Because of this, my father, and many other people in my hometown, lost thier jobs. For this very reason, I will NEVER buy a foreign built vehicle. The KJ we own is 79% American built according to the sticker. That's even more than I would like. I won't even rent a vehicle made by a company other than the big 3. The American automobile companies are a big part of our national economy, because I like being an American, I'm spending my money accordingly.
Should I tell you how I feel about the Kia Sportage in town with a spare tire cover with an American Flag and "There's only one..." ? My question is always, "There's only one what?"
