Mr LargeBalls, what about Ford's, Chev's and Chryslers made in Mexico? Should we just avoid those models and only purchase those that are 100% sourced and assembled here in the USA? Maybe you can educate us on which models we can select from, eh?
It’s a novel concept. Purchase American cars from America companies.

Or perhaps you could tell us the difference in using US supplied parts on the assembly lines in MeHiCo assembly plants vs. the imported parts on a jap job. You are confusing part content and where something is assembled. This study shows how much American part content is in each brand. They can have it assembled wherever they want and not affect the total American part content. After all, the assembly plants just receive the parts and put them together, they don't make them.

Join me in dedicating the famous Mary J Blige song to Toyota’s salesmen across the nation:

I’m going down…..
Cuz you aint around
I’m going down…

Toyota never did become #1 in this country. Sit back and watch that ship sink.
No...no..not 30 years ago my friend. Try 6 years ago (and that just the most recent one). And please tell me, how is it "sacrificing your fellow countrymen" when you choose not to buy a car "made in USA"? Last I heard, we are not actually at war with Toyota or (fill in the blank here). The Big 3 have grown exponentially better BECAUSE of the likes of Toyota and pretty much every other car manufacturer out there, because their (the Big 3) inferior quality drove people to buy those other brands. Even THEY have admitted to this folly and begged people to give them another chance. FINALLY, they realize they actually need to produce a car that people will want because it is nice to look at and holds together. I am not so much defending Toyota as I am defending the free market. If you want zero competition from Toyota or (fill in the blank here) then look no further than the former Soviet Union to see what that automotive utopia looks like. They made some pretty sweet cars (sic). Toyota will not sink, sorry pal. They will continue to have some defectors but in the end they will recover, improve and still be a formidable player and a force to be reckoned with.

Sacrifice your fellow countrymen because you were burnt by Americans at GM six years ago. Genius-

Choosing to purchase a car from an “un-American” company is sending money out of the country. If you were smart, you would have picked up on that.

Nobody begged anybody about anything. If you were smart you would know that. GM went bankrupt selling more cars than anyone else.

Toyota’s cars were never better than any other car. Don’t they hold the record for every recall in every category?

You want free market? Our American companies were crippled for years and not privy to a free market. Where did you go to school? You obviously comprise a deficient ability to encompass an understanding of the topic you attempt to discuss.


Toyota’s US market peaked in 08-09. They are sinking. Ride that ship like a dong, you silly rabbit.

You are correct on this point. Liberals have an engrained element that causes them to hate industry and thus caused a horrible plague on our American manufacturing, especially automobile manufacturing.

Exactly what regulations did the American companies have to meet that the foreign companies didn't?

I’ll give you an area that fits the bill and that would be free trade. The problem with free trade is that it does not work in Japan for USA companies; they are effectively shut out unless they partner with existing corporations to market their products there.

The result is inevitable; the Japanese company controls the money and replaces the USA products with "in-house" replicas at lower cost forcing the USA Company to be a silent partner for a royalty fee on its original designs.

Neat trick of which is just one example of regulation that has crippled and continues to cripple our great American manufacturers.

I thought Vance was referring to regs here in the US, but you are quite correct. I'm surprised that hasn't been addressed yet......
