    This makes me want to buy a Honda even more (or any other car built in the US with non-union labor. After Barack Hussein Obama gave billions of our tax dollars to GM and Chrysler and then bragged about their profits (who couldn't make a profit when given billions and be able to write off lossess on future tax returns?), the only US car I would even consider would be Ford.
    The Subaru I recently bought that was made in Indiana is the BEST initial quality of all the 6 new cars I have purchased in the past.

    I agree with you 100% but we do differ on one point.I wouldn't even buy Ford. I am a Honda loyalist and will buy their products regardless of country of origin. Personally I don't believe GM and Chrysler should have been "bailed out" as the problems they got themselves into were largely of their own doing/making (some, yes were out of their control such as world oil prices driving the price of gas sky high)but some were of GM and Chrysler making such as not building small 4 cylinder vehicles people wanted with gas going up instead building hundreds of their "cash cow" full size gas sucking trucks but they were "bailed out" so as to save the jobs specifically the union jobs and union workers which usually and (traditionally) vote democratic.

    Ford vehicles are manufactured by union members, for the most part.

    The profit on the Hondas still goes back to Japan (where Hondas healthcare costs are zero for Japanese employees). I want the profit from my sale to stay in the U.S.

    but where is the domestic Chrysler's profit going to?

    Honda will have to improve the fun-to-drive element in their cars before we would consider buying one. Where a car is made isn't the only criteria. We drive Focuses (Foci?) now, a current Civic is just an appliance.

    Why does is sell so much better than the Focus? I checked out the Foci at the latest autoshows hoping the new models quality improved, I was very disappointed, the fit and finish is no where near a Honda.

    Yea...if u enjoy driving a car that feels like you're driving can of Pepsi...then yea...the Civic is for you!! The ONLY reason Civics outsell Focii now is due to consumer ignorance/laziness!!!

    The reason I drive a Honda Civic Del Sol is because it's not completely falling apart like EVERY American Automakers car at 200,000 miles. I beat the living snot out of it and it just keeps coming back with impressive mpg, fun driving, and not to mention a feeling of reliability that is trusted and acknowledged to even the most muscle headed auto buyers. Honda came into the shine in the 1970s due to the oil crisis and the fact is that they proved to me and millions of others that they make good, low-cost, and reliable cars.

    Why are you showing the Fit? As far as I know, Honda has no plans of building it in the US.

  • richard avatar Richard Posted: 8/17/2012 6:08pm PDT

    Paragraph #6 above: Honda is moving production of the Fit to a new facility in Mexico, which will make it a "North American" vehicle. Detroit automakers currently build about 97% of their vehicles for U.S. consumers in North America. By bringing the Fit (and other models) to Canada, the U.S., and Mexico, Honda may match that figure.

    Since Honda stock is traded publicly as is GM and Ford nationality does not matter.Where it does matter is with the Koreans who don't have open market's and stock is publicly traded .Even though Hyundai's are built in Alabama .What is more important is that Americans can be involved in upper management Honda and Toyota have that latter open to anyone.
