Re: 3.6 Pentastar made in Michigan and Mexico

Well hold onto your hat. They are going to be assembling Jeeps in China soon! Good news is that they are going to stay in China.

Re: 3.6 Pentastar made in Michigan and Mexico

My window sticker says that the engine was made in Mexico and the transmission in Germany.

Will I get better gas mileage if I take the sticker off?

Re: 3.6 Pentastar made in Michigan and Mexico

My Engine was made in Mexico, Tranny was made in the United States.
As long as it keeps running I stopped caring.

Re: 3.6 Pentastar made in Michigan and Mexico

China sucks. They are our enemy, might i remind you... Ill buy anything from anywhere if it is engineered (by us engineers typically) as well as the crap made in china.

Mexico is fine. They make great hemi engines and meth there....
