As much of that Nissan was built in the US as anything else. Engineers probably went to school here too.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
Another angry, maladjusted boner lashing out...
Hey brother - I've only been to Detroit a handful of times in my entire life and I've only lived in Michigan for five years, while I was at MSU and one year before in Traverse City. My point was simple: don't rep the D hard if you're driving a rice burner. Is that too difficult for you to grasp?

Please explain any basic financial details behind this tired 1980s rallying cry.
Ridgeline is assembled in Alabama.
That's really awesome for the Michigan economy...
I don't give a damn if someone from north Carolina buys a Honda, but if you live in metro Detroit you should realize that the local economy is contingent on the success of that the auto companies
You know what I love about the USA? Freedom, diversity, and choice. If we totally domesticated everything, I'm sorry but this country would suck balls. That guy gets it.
so it is made in a foreign country.
Anyone who puts ornaments on a luxury car, foreign or not, does not"get it"
It is possible to love the D without wanting to drive a shitty car. There is a lot more to the D than the auto industry these days, but what would you know? You live in Arizona.
Isn't the F150 rated the best truck year in and year out? Lol, dumb ass
the big three make some really excellent cars. This wasn't always the case, but in 2013 you are no longer able to say that American cars are shitty. If you want to prove a point, don't resort to hyperbole to do so.
Ass Dan, the boners are too angry and frustrated, they can only lash out without using facts or anything else to support an "argument" - boners gonna bone
By any chance did this guy have a goatee, or mustache goatee combo?
I'm with you.
A lot of your neighbors in Detroit (and Lansing) work in the auto industry.
Best truck according to whom? They've won truck of the year 3 times in the last 10 years, but Motor Trend also gives the SUV of the year to the Subaru Forrester all the time, and that car sucks ass. But I will say Americans are fairly decent at building trucks and minivans.
Don't wash the BMW while wearing your Tigers cap though.

Oh, look - my stalker is back
They make decent cars, but still nothing I want to buy. I test drove a few different ones and for approximately the same price I just felt like I got a lot more with a foreign car.
US automakers were paying unskilled workers (line workers) 70-100K/yr. Unions were what destroyed the auto industry in this country. Politicians are to blame as well, they certainly did nothing to help. In the end, when you spend 20x the amount in labor as a company with a plant in mexico, china, japan, taiwan, this will end up being a problem
Not to mention the other unfair advantage of getting money from their own government or others' (Totyota= Japan and Canada) to help with whatever the hell they want.
the other issue is that motors and components are so interchangeable. Ford is slamming mazda engines in their cars. Components and other systems in cars are shared by companies and purchased from somewhere? It is really a blurry line anymore. It is more than where hq is or how many american laborors are employed. To really figure out how the money that you spend on a car is allocated would take a lot of time and research, which is probably be design at this point.
almost forgot. "repping" anything on your vehicle is lame, especially pro teams. I dont care if it is a ford, nissan, or a gdamn martian hovercraft.
It is lame for me to rep a spartan license plate? Or is that somehow stupid too.
