Here's another example. I got tired of replacing the heater control valve on my Olds Custom Cruiser every month or so with another "white box" made in Mexico valve. I finally went to the dealership and ordered a factory AC Delco valve (at great personal expense). When I picked it up (took a week to arrive), I turned the Delco box over and it also said "Made in Mexico".
