Typical of the news media to report the bad things about American companies in BOLD SCREAMING headlines and mention very little about the bad aspects of foreign car companies. Someday EVERY job in the US will be in jeapardy of foreign companies, the time WILL come unless it's stopped now. Drive your wretched rice burners while you can, because when your job goes down the tubes, you'll be riding a Japanese powered bicycle.

I never said I drive a foreign car. They are as bad as a Ford car. I drive a good old Chevy car.
Chevy makes god cars and if I want a truck then I will go to Ford.I will never and have never driven or even rode in a foreign car. Thanks but I am American all the way.

Say what you like about Ford's but I drive a 68 f100 that has never, ever, given me one minute of trouble. I'm the third owner and the two owner’s b4 had the same to say.
When they say "Built FORD tough" they must have had my truck in mind.
And it's not like any of the other American Manufacture’s haven't had large recalls.

Say what you want about Foreign cars. The fact is, every good thing invented in this world was made overseas. America thrives on using other people's money to buy (or steal) things to suit our own purpose. Nothing good comes from here. It's just that places like China gives the word "foreign made" a bad name. Places like Germany have put out products that are way ahead of us. Toyota is overpriced but they kept "pride" alive whilst American companies turned their backs. Who the hell got this MADE IN THE USA thing started? American companies don't give a damn about that! They are just pissed because of declining sales. It's all about the money HERE!! That's why America LOVES China. Makes the Chinese people suffer to work for peanuts just so WE can pay LESS to use their JUNK.

Ford is the biggest disgrace of a car company EVER. They depend on their name and their slogan but the TREND speaks loud and clear.

DOn't exclude Chevy. They are better than Ford, but they are known for being rustbuckets. So, their ignorance over the years proves that it's just another name and nothing more. Toyota makes good cars but they are getting too big and taking too much advantage of hard slaving people in this country. That's a pretty bold move for someone who doesn't pay taxes!!

If I am not mistaken, The Hyundai Accent is made in Korea. I own a Fender Stratocaster that was made there. Their quality has surprisingly been very good. This shouldn't be ignored. Cheap and reliable is what we want and IT'S POSSIBLE. That simple reason is what creates a digusting outllok towards most big companies in America. They could make cheap products here that last long. But, instead they would rather make an art out of building an overpriced product(RETAIL) and designing it to fail after a specified period of time so that more money will flow through the system. It's a disgraceful country we live in. An individualized culture that is self serving at best.
