I am going to catch flack for this. Sorry. Decades ago I worked summers on the Detroit assembly line. I did not like what I saw there. Japanese were putting out MUCH better quality. However, a lot of relatives work in Detroit for the car companies, and I KNOW Detroit is now putting out a FAR, FAR higher quality product then in the past. However, my past experience just kept me from buying "American" for years, even though I bought EVERYTHING ELSE, "made in the USA" whenever possible.
Now, however, I DO own a domestic car...a FORD, my first in decades (I still own a Toyota and a Honda), and I must admit, this FORD is a SUPER NICE DRIVING and well built, well DESIGNED vehicle. Bravo Detroit!!! (of course my Honda was built in Ohio and my Toyota was built in Kentucky, I think...so what does that say???).
