My Japanese car was made in Ontario, Canada. When I bought it I supported the Canadian economy and Canadian jobs.
Most "foreign" cars sold in North America are made in North America BY North Americans, so whats the big deal about buying "domestic"?
By the way, some "domestics" are made in Mexico!

Improve their cars' quality/reliability.

While many American cars are made with good quality, they don't depreciate as slowly as Japanese cars.

In the case of GM and Chrysler, they could repay their bonds and get themselves out from under Government control.

Fuel efficiency is much better... rivals Toyota... They need better promotion and increased incentives... warranty's to demonstrate they stand behind the quality of their product.
