fta The American Automobile Labeling Act classifies cars and parts manufactured in Canada as "domestic."

clancifer: Have they listed how this can be blamed on Obama?


Prolly not. Even Obama has been labeled "domestic".

Don't worry America, some other country will step up to the plate and build shiat cars for you. Bangladesh has the correct level of technology right now to produce something at least as good as the average American car.

When I a chance to replace my 2000 Grand Prix with a half-broken stereo and two taped up windows and a transmission that "KER-PLUNKED" from 1st to 2nd gear every time I dove it I had a choice between a American made vehicle or my Subaru.

1 and a half years later, my Subie is perhaps the best thing I could have bought. I can actually perform many small repairs myself! Wow!

/Top Gear top tip: when your GM product's window breaks and won't roll up any more because the plastic coil snapped, don't use duct tape. Use packing tape. Duct tape lasted maybe a week. Packing tape would last nearly 2 months.
 
2014-07-04 05:52:52 PM
Well, that depends. Is it considered "going extinct" if you're recalling pretty much your entire line of vehicles due to various, potentially lethal things?
 
2014-07-04 05:52:52 PM
Silly question, perhaps, but aren't Tesla's made almost entirely in the US?

i'm too lazy to research it, but really, how many cars are 100% american anymore? i mean, seems like everyone of them has parts and/or assembly somewhere other than the usa. seems that many "foreign" vehicles have as much claim to "made in the usa" as the domestic brands...honda, vw, toyota, and i believe bmw and m benz all have some level of car building in the usa...probably more brands than that
 
2014-07-04 06:04:20 PM
What the American automakers never seem to get, is that while everyone fantasizes about own a car that will make them look cool, ultimately most people buy something with good MPG and is reliable.

And for those with money to burn, American sports cars are turds compared to the overseas competition.
 
2014-07-04 06:04:20 PM
Regardless there will always be tons of cars assembled in America.  Too much transportation cost for all that wasted space.
 
2014-07-04 06:04:50 PM
Certainly it went like this:

Headline: American cars are going extinct
Editor: Hmm..that clashes with our policy of 'we're not saying he's Kenyan, we're just asking questions!'...so put that in the form of a question
 
2014-07-04 06:05:23 PM
I would LOVE to buy an American car.  If only they weren't made so shiatally and looked like bad Chinese rip-offs of real cars.  "Buy American Because America!" or "Buy the Best Crafted at the Lowest Price."  Which slogan sounds almost like it could have been painted on a wall in Moscow in 1960?
 
2014-07-04 06:05:52 PM
most of the reason i come to fark is to laugh at how stupid and inbred Americans are. it's just not that funny anymore. it's more sad, verging on scary. you guys are so divided and so retarded, your country is in real danger. and who will save you? the Canadians?

So can I ask a dumb question: why buy American? If there is a better made car for the same or less money, buy that.

And if you wanna say "murica jobs", then we need to make better cars. And if we can't, be in another industry.

It's an insanely popular car in Europe, and unlike the Prius, Cube, and Smart, the Fiat has a cool factor.

And they brought the Abarth version over too!

Now if we could just get US Ford to bring over the European fast Fords...

And oh my god, Aussie cars.

I want a Maloo.

i think you missed a little something in my little bit of ranting...dodge should've fallen long ago. first they merged with daimler, and rather than dodge getting better, mercedes suffered. i'll admit, it was neat seeing a lot of crossfires on the autobahns when i went back to germany in 2004, but daimler finally dropped them. dodge continued their suffering, and then got taken over by fiat. great for fiat...great for free market, etc, but really dodge is going so far in the crapper than they have separated the RAM brand into it's own entity, and GOT FRIGGING BOUGHT BY FIAT

if i was in charge of dodge, we would save ourselves by building 4 vehicle brands...the challengers, the chargers, the ram trucks, and a collector edition limited/numbered run annually of vipers. concentrate on these niche-market vehicles plus a pick up, keep making them better and more badass, and drop all the other stuff.

i don't know if dodge has anything to do with the jeeps other than distro...but if they do, i'd drop all but the wranglers and grand cherokees...concentrate on making those better and more badass

gm was smart (a little late, but smart none-the-less) to drop some of their brands. they ditched saturn and hummer. good. pontiac...well, that was pretty stupid...they should've kept pontiac and make it like i would dodge...a super specialized niche-market brand...trans-ams and g8 gts, and limited edition super badass gtos or ram-air trans-ams

But if the local product is mediocre, and there is a better product for cheaper, why not buy that?

Well, the American car companies basically completely abandoned the small 4 banger hatchback. Even though a lot of people want them still. The ford/chevy offerings are meh++, even for the category.

Course, my first car was a 3cyl Geo metro, so I find myself attracted to the fiat 500, they could be siblings.
