Uh...guess I have some bad news for you. All US manufacturers use foreign components.

FORD partially owms MAZDA

GM has a partnership with TOYOTA and ISUZU

CHRYSLER is mainly MITSUBISHI

So you can't lay it on just one domestic manufacturer...

Yea, but GM's V8's are still American, and that's all that really matters. Chrysler abandoned us a long time ago......

I wonder what do you think the Triton V8 Ford engines are? How about the old 3.8 and 3.0 OHV engines? These engines are all Ford. All manufactures nowadays share parts in certain model cars.

axis of evil.. i hate to say this but i think someone needs to look at a map. south Korea is a western oriented country.. as apposed to the alltogether different country the communist North korea..

the management and design group of mazda in japan is run by americans.. if it mattered what nationallity the workers (99% robots anyway) then isnt a chevy mexican?

chrystler is not mainly mitsubishi. if its mainly anything then its mainly Mercedes (daimler-chrystler is the name of the company.. remember?)

and wouldnt any of you like to have atleast one of the following forgein cars: Mercedes, BMW, Land Rover, Bentley, Lamborghini, Ferrari, All of which can be bought with a v8 (except the Lambo but in that case id make an exception?

anyway being made in Mexico by an American company doesnt nessecarily make it better than everything else out there.
