Re: China

maybe it will be a GC only for the chinese market? Its a fact that all american companies need to sell products to the chinese. The market is just too large to ignore. With my company...southeast asia and china is our largest expanding market.

I would personally pay bit more for US made, just to support our country workers. I hope we all do. Stop making someone reach while half of the country without work here in US!

Re: China

Jeep is assembled in US made but all over the world. Paint and electronics in Japan, I recall seeing moose's OEM speakers saying made in China. Steel made in US.

Interesting there was one mention of quality control further back. I can tell you that the Chinese factories are very strict and and QC is very high. They certainly wouldn't have drunk stoners working in the factory . (Funny how a minority can tarnish a reputation).

I'd say practically the Jefferson Assembly plant would continue to build North American vehicles but having a second factory tooled up for foreign markets incl china makes good sense especially when a lot of the components originate in Asia. China has the biggest growth in vehicle ownership per capita. It would also mean down under we wouldn't be faced with 4 month delivery turnaround.

Re: China

Side note: a lot of GM owned vehicles sold in Australia are built in Malaysia. The Toyota Hilux (tacoma) is built there too along with a number of other vehicles and the QC issue is virtually non existent in these vehicles.

Re: China

If my home was not in the US, I wouldn't care as much if my car was made there either.

Re: China

I don't need to go to China...I've already smelled it and it's horrible. Everytime I walk into a Harbor Freight store it smells like formaldehyde.

Good to see some strong sentiment for US-made products. Hope it goes viral.

Not just this, I would like to pay my $ and get things from all over globe not just China as now. Shoes from Italy, chocolate from Swiss, tulips from Holland, honey from New Zealand, coffee from Brazil, Levis & Nike, Jeep should be made in US!!! China and India should stop stealing our jobs and get back to do something what they do good.

Based on my earlier post in this thread I guess I qualify as a Chinese made hater. My Laptop is a Sony and it's Japanese, and it's great.
