I know foreign cars we of better quality for a while, but is that a reason to buy from the company that attacked us?  I personally don't have any major problems with Japan and I do own a Nissan pickem up, but should I feel guilty for not buying American?  There are those few elite who for there lack of morals and character have really screwed us and America, but are we all to blame for not doing more to support our own country?  Most of us hate NAFTA, but how many REALLY look for the "made in America" sticker?

addendum..

!!!!!

now realize I am posing this as a QUESTION I am certainly not making accusations!  Like I said I own a Nissan.  I am just curious what others think and looking for information on the topic to form a better, more educated decision for myself

i have a used honda because where i lived there were literally no other cars i could buy. so it was that, or not go to school. and its a 97, with 268000 miles, still going strong (i baby it though)


i wouldve liked to buy american, but sorry, best car gets my money.



do you treat your kids differently

1. You DO realize, of course, that very few "foreign" cars are actually foreign, right? Hondas are made in Ohio, Toyotas are made in California, Nissans are made in Tennessee, while Fords are made in Canada and Chevy's are made in Mexico and Canada.

2. Are you saying that consumers should reward poor performance and quality because its "American"?

I don't feel that way.  In the last few years I've owned a 2000 Chevy Z71 pickup, a 2000 GMC Suburban, and now I have a 2008 Chevy Tahoe.

Personally, I blame the unions. Easy target, I suppose. But for so many years, several thousand dollars went into the price of each and every car and truck made just to support the union. I think I heard it was aroun $7000, but I haven't had all of my coffee yet, so might be wrong. When a fucking pickup truck costs $40,000, something is very fucking wrong. Maybe if the blue collar worker could still afford to purchase a brand new truck, GM and the others wouldn't be in so much trouble.

Of course, I remember that alot of the costs forced on auto makers comes from the govt., too. What is that called, cafe standards?
Link Posted: 4/28/2009 2:58:39 AM EDT
GM has sold more autos than any other car maker probably every year except one - I don't think people buying foreign makes is the issue with GM.

Doesn't matter how many cars you sell if your legacy costs outpace your profits - very simple math can figure this out.

Well, for one, the CAFE standards are partly to blame.  Toyota isn't required to abide by CAFE but the big 3 are.  Either way I will only buy from Toyota.  There simply isn't enough room in the market place for all of these manufactures and the cars they make.  Sorry GM, time to go tits up.

The only profits that go to Japan are the manufacturing profits.

Dealer profits stay in the US.  When Toyota built their plant in Princeton, IN it was estimated that around 300 businesses (some new like the AK Steel we have in our county) would be supplying the new Toyota plant.  I'd guarantee if you could break it down the American tax base benefits more from one new car supplied/made/sold in the US than the Japanese tax base.  Not to mention Toyota is NON-UNION and is one of the most sought after manufacturing jobs in our area.

I blame management for going into to much debt, designing cars that don't last, changing the styles every year, marketing a 25,000 purchase on the "wow" factor, having too many safety problems that require recalls, generally only caring about next quarters stock price, paying executives way too much, giving executives lucrative pensions after only a few years employment, shipping US jobs to Canada, mexico and other outside the US locations, treating employees shitty enough they have to have a union, having their own finance arm of the company, leasing vehicles that they must take back after 3 years instead of selling them, thinking quality is about options, and generally running the company into the ground all the while taking large payments for themselves.

That about sums it up I think.

I've owned Toyotas, Chevy, Pontiac, Honda, and an old Uick. (Buick that the B fell off).



Do I feel that I've not supported US automakers?  No.  Do I feel that US automakers have not supported the consumer?  Maybe, but I missed the days of the past where V8 engines blew valves and rods at 20,000 miles.  My cars have always been reliable enough for me and when they get past that point I dump them.  



Research the failure of US Steel and the Steelworker's union and then compare it to GM and the UAW.  The culture that is the auto industry in the US hurt itself.  Foreign automakers who came here brought a different culture with them.

"Buy American" is part of what got us here in the first  place.  GM (and others) may have caught on a little sooner and corrected things if we didn't continue to provide charity in the form of buying their garbage.  We enabled them, which made them weaker when they needed to be at their strongest.

I don't give a shit where something is made, if it's the best one of the type that I'm looking for or it's just something that I particularly want then that is what I buy. It's my money, I made it, I'm not going to feel guilty spending it on whatever I please. That being said, every vehicle I've ever owned except the first one that was bought for me has been a domestic.

If a particular group is to blame it's the UAW. The car manufacturers that don't use union workers are doing fine, all of the ones that do are bleeding money. Coincidence?

What killed GM is what Honda and Toyota don't have yet, a 100 year history that has turned into a multi-billion dollar a year legacy of pensions and retiree healthcare.

Every single penny of that multi-billion dollar a year legacy comes from GM's bottom line.

There are approximately 500,000 GM retirees.

More I think about it - it was the "Buy American" crowd that enabled the failure too. Lookup "enabling" in the realm child psychology - it applies to adults and businesses too.  Basically as Big 3 was turning crap and out of loyalty to American worker, embedded Federal and local government contracts requirements, fleet deals these companies were allowed to survive and thrive turning out garbage due to non-market forces until that was unsustainable too. Performance got worse and worse. Costs got higher and higher. And we subsidized this failure.

You are not to blame.  

My family has owned a used car lot since the 1980's, thus I've been around big numbers of many models of cars - and seen what they were able to do, and just couldn't - over the years.

GM was making shit most of the time, and it was readily apparent to anyone who had their eyes open.  If you, I and every Aunt Sally had been buying more of their cars - they STILL would have held to making absolute shit (but raking in the profits).  If one looks back enough, they'd be able to start pinpointing when GM was experimenting with planned obsolescence (parts made to only last a specific number of miles).

Anyway, if it were REALLY American's fault for putting them under by not buying American products, Ford would be in the same boat GM and Chrysler intentionally put themselves in.

But realize this - Ford isn't.

More (not all, but more) Ford models proved reliable enough over 150,000 miles, then over 200,000 miles, to create return customers.  Hell, Ford was making cars work better, longer, in the 1980's when GM was putting out its most absolute shit lines.

There are still Ford models, or motors, being made today that I will never buy, but otherwise they get my full support for NOT screwing America and NOT needing the 'loan.'

Takes a generation to make or break a reputation in cars.

I remember the 1960s Japanese cars, garbage! They were producing good cars by about 1975 but did'nt get the solid household rep until the late 1980s.

Similarly for Koreans, after the 1980's crap only today 20 years later are they finding some respect.

Big 3 will have to come through with 20 years of CTS's across the fleet to get people you're talking about wanting them again.

And this!

This is an issue I have with domestic autos. I have a 1998 Tahoe, it has several problems that have existed for years in this particular model, drive train. You would think a company would scramble to correct a known problem, but they do not, I don't understand this. The foreign auto makers seem to take it personally when a problem shows up and scramble to fix it.
I remember when Subaru had a problem with timing belts, the paid for all of them that failed.

Remember when Dr. W. Edwards Deming tried to help the US auto industry after WWII and 'did not find an audience', then he went to Japan. The US auto makers did it to themselves, along with the UAW.

Your right.  We should have purchased from the socially responsible standpoint not from the rational basis of cost vs benefit.  I mean the other companies put out a decent product but really don't we have an obligation to keep the union members working and ensuring that they have the jobs they need to feed their families?

There are quite a few good points in there, but I would like to point out that the UAW started with GM in 1937.  I'm not sure how treating them better today would cause the workers to drop their union ways.
