This is not a complete list of vehicles built in this Country either asian or Domestic. There are some more japanese and korean vehicles that are assembled here in the States (we won't mention the Domestics at this time) with and without U.S. made parts (and still much more not and imported). Those "built" here do help out our immediate economy but the company is not American based and MORE profits do return to those mother countries than the rice supporters want to admit and want you to believe. The orientals do know how to wrap themselves in our flag and if this Country continues to allow this method of "global marketing" and also purchasing billions of products from china as well we will cease to be the Nation we once were.

Misleading article.  Notice it states "North American Parts Content"?  That includes Canada and Mexico.  If they wanted truth in reporting, then why not list just the American-made parts content?  Bet the vehicle list would look much different.

Too bad some of the information here isn't consistent with what the manufacturers have posted on their window stickers for U.S./Canada parts content.  Seems like sloppy journalism to me.

It would be nice if the cars  made here were owned by American companies. It's an easy way of getting around paying the import tariff.

I googled my 2012 F150 and found that it has 75% American parts and was "built in Michigan. It finished a close second to the Camery in AMI according to google. ByUSAgain you suck.

Also a $25000 car cost no where near $20 to build. With rebates and discounts most $25000 cars can bought for close to $20,000. On average there is about a 40 % mark up on cars and the higher the price the more the profit margin. EXAMPLE : A $40,000 truck can be purchased for about $32,000 any day of the week. The profit margin going back to other countries is much much greater than $2000 on a $25000 car..Be realistic  in your defence of foreign companys

WHO wrote this??? How is the Chrysler 200 an "upstart sedan"?... it's just a Chrysler Sebring with some modifications and a name-change!

Oh the bitterness. There are bloggers here insisting that a $25k car , that costs $20k to build, and is built using 80% American materials, parts and labor still has some imaginary, huge profit that returns to another country.
  The net profit to be made on that vehicle is about $5k. A nice chunk gets divided by the dealership and salesperson leaving about $2k to go back to the country that owns the company. That means that of $23k of the money spent to build and sell that vehicle got pumped directly into the US economy.
  Now, take the ford Fusion at $25k. Built in Mexico and comprised of only 22% American parts and materials. The US economy gets about $10k from that vehicle sale with $15k going to foreign parts, materials and labor. You tell us which vehicle is best for our economy.
  Who owns that company matters not. There are many imports to choose from that profit the US much more than many domestic models. Many bloggers here do not want to accept that this is a fact because that makes them hypocrites for condemning those import purchasers for so long. Ouch!!

Just becuase a company has setup shop here in the US doesn't mean that its a US company.  It's great that people are being employed, but the premis is American MFG.  Where does the bulk of the money go once the unit is sold?  It's traitorous to believe that the list you provide is an American product.  The list is just full of foriegn models.  I don't see the German's bragging about how a "Rice Burner" is considered German Made if built in Germany.
