Re: China

I have done three surveys in the last ten days. None of them mentioned Jeeps being made in China. Two of the surveys did ask how important it is to me to buy American made vehicles.

Re: China

All you have to do is look at the window stickers (bottom right).

Engine (HEMI)= Mexico
Everything Else = USA

Re: China

I really don't understand this thread. The wk2 is made in Michigan and thats where its going to continue to be made. I take it this started because someone thinks they are reading something into a survey.

Re: China

I had my heart set on a hummer but nope. I lost respect for the brand when they were sold to a Chinese company.

Re: China

Yup, China is one large exporter. Next time you walk through a store pick things at random and see where there are made. Hecko in Mexico or Made in China.

Re: China

Does this mean you won't buy an iPhone either? They are made in China.

Re: China

If I had,a choice I would pay for a similar product made here because in the end if nothing is made in the usa, then how will I make money myself since no one around me will have a paying job. Make iphones and jeeps here.

Re: China

We're not talking about China-bashing. In fact Chinese auto parts are pretty good quality and, yes, my house is full of all sorts of products made in China. But Jeep is an American icon. Seeing that Chrysler's fortunes are finally on the rise again why would they leave to go somewhere else right now? They would lose what is maybe their strongest selling point for a lot of us. AND Jeep is not a niche brand like Hummer was for GM. Jeep is generating profits for Chrysler. Nope, not gonna happen. And how come we haven't seen any details on this supposed survey??

Re: China

This debate seems to be ubiquitous in many forums.

Yes, as improbable as it seems, an American Icon being made in China, there's one easy, obvious, and, critical reason it could happen.

Capitalism.

Re: China

Not if you as a consumer vote with your money and thousands others follow.
