How much of your "Made in America" vehicle ACTUALLY is Made in America? You will be surprised by these numbers...

How much of your "Made in America" car is actually made in America?  Below is a list of cars and their content of American made/sourced parts in percentage terms. It is interesting to note the domestic and foreign mix of manufacturers.  Toyota, Honda and Acura have vehicles with MORE American made parts than many of the US manufacturers. 

We have to re-think what it means to "Buy American"--could it really mean "Buy Japanese to get Made in America"???...
