"Jealously" is an ugly emotion!
This is just one of the pathetic positions Hussein has placed our Country in. Sold out to the Commies, with our money, borrowed from the Chinese, for which we are still paying interest to the Chinese. I think I feel like puking. I have purchased many GM products in the past, Oldsmobiles, Pontiacs, Buicks, Chevys, but never again. Those union guys are on the time clock to no employment.
Here is an article that speaks a bit about the automotive industry without all the fabricated drama.
GM Leads U.S. Carmaker Gains in China as Honda Motor
Oh, and yes I am very happy with my truck.
Thanks, tried a diff. link.

in 1992, the dodge cummins 4x4 i bought, found out later, was built in mexico. not the engine/trans, but the truck. in 2001, i sold that thing and bought a ford lightning. come to find out, it was built in canada. in 2005, sold the lightning and got a silverado d'max. of the 3, the only one built in the US (from everything can i see) was the gm product.
when silverado's are coming in off a ship, i might worry about it. just because gm is manufacturing stuff in china doesn't mean they are manufacturing complete vehicles to import into the us. ford has been involved in manufacturing in europe for decades - doesn't mean it's to import or to replace american manufacturing for americans.

BTW, I love my Chevy truck that I bought in 2002. My next truck will be a Ford.
1998 1/2 ton gmc 2wd 4.3, 277,000 HARD miles, no major issues other than a tranny 2k miles ago. Made in Indiana. Love it.
'09 3/4 ton d-max , bought it with 5k miles, has 17k or so on it, could'nt be happier.
Our internally economically hostile country put these corps in out sourcing postitions.. why should they invest here just to lose money.
I guess I should have put the info about mine too. I love it!!
'02 Chevy 2500 HD 4x4. 496. 105,000 miles. Bought it new in Nov. of '01 before it became Gov't Motors and well before it becomes China Motors. Will probably have it for another 10 years unless we decide to go with a camper and get a dually.
I am opposed to doing business with China. The Chinese are laughing their asses off, because they are outsmarting us at our own capitalistic game. A lot of our wealth is going to a regime that is building a navy they hope to rival ours. They eventually want to control all Asian waters. That is just the start. Do not be fooled into thinking China is our friend.
I am not opposed to outsourcing to countrys that are friendly to the USA, it seems we have a global economy now.
Owned 7 succesive F150's back to back and shudder to think where they or thier parts are made but I love them !
OK, I have six kids and even more grandchildren. When we load up to go somewhere as a family I need to haul bodies and I always have. Who wants to tell me what company manufactures something competitive to the Suburban that can comfortably haul 8 or even 9 bodies as we did yesterday on a three hundred mile trip? I'm all ears. As far as my truck, I'll stick with my Duramax Dually, thank you very much.
You see, components of every car manufacturer are made globally so who is to say what country made your car? The wages the UAW have demanded are now beyond unsustainable. Unless someone can bust up the UAW, I agree with their decision to move offshore where they can remain competitive. I have proof that they build very good automobiles!
The best things in life aren't things!
Interesting information considering Obummer claims success in bailing out the auto industry. The guy must where rose colored glasses.
