Pilot Dan, remember the lawsuits for:

Ford Explorer rollover problem,
The ignition-switch in Ford vehicles causing fire, destroying the cars
and the garage/house where the cars were parked at night,
The GM fuel tanks exploding.

I won\'t buy another American car. Sound stupid, huh?

From ConsumerReports:
\"Of the 22 models on the Least Satisfying list, 20 are from American

Toyota knocked Ford out of second place(because you\'re not the only one voting with your wallet).

\"Made in the U.S.A\" is no longer a selling point.

People will pay for safety and value, wherever it was made. Manufacturer executives already know this.

You insulted a whole country because of a few incidents? Go back and read the beginning of this rant.
