This....I certainly didn't buy my Chrysler cars for these idiot's stellar work ethic. After arbitration these UAW clowns got their jobs back and likely with back pay. I wish I had 3 Mexican Mopars after seeing this shite:

Please don't make my blood pressure go up, lol.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Check this out. A few years ago, ABC News filled three rooms of a house in Dallas with all American-made goods. It can be done. They claim that if everyone purchased these products, 10,000 jobs would be created in this country.

Where did you get Italian from? The LC platform is an variation of the LX platform which was based on the Mercedes E class chassis. Last I checked Mercedes was German.

Per the windows sticker 70% of the parts in the Challenger are USA or Canadian made, with the engine and transmission (M6) being Mexican made I don't think there's much of a percentage left for "loads of Chinese parts".

I agree with trying to get most of our products "Made in the US" if possible. Fact is, a lot of our big ticket items aren't built here anymore...and the few that are...they're uber expensive. Check out the prices on the fridge and dishwasher!!
Those are commercial grade appliances....The day I have 8K of disposable income and I need a fridge, I'll keep them in mind...

Look who owns the controlling stake in Chrysler. That's where the Italian comes from. And, I said German as referring to the transmission. I know where the LX platform got it's roots. I'm sure there are still plenty of chinese made parts regardless of the window sticker. I did notice that the window glass says USA on it so at least the F1s and the glass are US made.

Besides it was intended to be a joke. Sorry I didn't research the exact percentages for you. LOL

I do recall...even back in the late eighties, Ford actually had a percentage on the car's window sticker which gave an estimate of how much of each car model consisted of foreign parts. Anyone else recall that? I think even back then, it was 30%...nowadays, I bet it's more like 70%...

you're correct.

i think in 2010 the F150 had so much foreign content on it, that it didn't even qualify to compete in Cars.com "Top American Made Cars" or something like that......

the Toyota Camry is the most American car in the United States.......

Cars.com American Made Index ranks Toyota Camry #1 again

It seems the Accord now boasts a 75-percent American parts percentage (which is the minimum allowable to make this list) as it is now being assembled in two separate plants based in the United States. Ford's F-150, however, saw its American parts percentage fall from 80 percent down to just 55 percent – a scenario Ford calls "pretty common."
