This will keep being the case until the US starts applying import taxes/tariffs on all incoming goods.

Absolutely, DILF - but just remember - 80% of Americans would still buy those Japanese cars if they were even $5,000 more expensive than a Chevy.

Taxes aren't going to cut it - I say the US needs to kick the Japanese, Korean and German automakers out of the country. Become isolationist when it comes to vehicles. Stop giving away all that "free" local labor and free land leases to foriegn manufacturers.
