Default Born suckers

As free traders are we being taken for suckers, with the US and
Canadian government acquiescing with countries actively acting in bad
faith and trading unfairly.

This is from a newspaper article (
http://www.canada.com/topics/news/na...3037a5&k=21038
)

Here is the take away from this article...

"Hargrove said four million vehicles were shipped into North America
last year, many from countries that don't allow foreign cars to be
sold in their markets.

He took special aim at Japan for tariff and other barriers.

"One story is that if you buy an import, right away your income tax is
audited," Hargrove said, adding that inspection processes are another
way foreign vehicles are kept out of Japan."

It is bad enough that the US guarantees their security at great cost
while they build and ship cars from their countries (Japan, Korea
specifically) while undermining the North American economy by blocking
access to their markets.

Where does fair trade become part of the purchasing decision?

IF American car companies made the best cars and trucks on the market, the
foreign car companies wouldn't be so popular in North America.

Really simple....

If the "American" companies offered what I wanted, without raping me in the
wallet, I would have bought one of those. As it was, the *ONLY* truck that
had what I needed was my Tundra..... and it was made in the USA.

that's the irony of the op's dumb-ass trolling. japanese companies
manufacture quality vehicles here, using locally sourced components.
domestics manufacture crap, in mexico and wherever, and use chinese
components. and they over-charge. and they cut corners on dangerous
stuff like red rear turn signals. then they whine about losing market
share! must be run by sociopaths.

<snip>

It's real simple. Americans want a car that *works* predictably and reliably
for YEARS. Many, if given that choice, would buy AMERICAN vehicles if they
met the criteria.

Sadly, most of the Detroit 3's offerings don't, haven't, and may not ever.

It's hard to remain loyal to any company that costs you regular trips to the
repair shop and hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Some of us don't have that kind of scratch to throw around simply to be
patriotic (putting everything else aside)....

It's sad. But people will buy what works.

Really? Apparently American buyers think GM and Ford products are better
that Toyota, they buy millions more of their vehicles from them than buyers
that chose Toyotas LOL

And if others in other countries can get what they want right at their own
back door, why import junk?

Tell you what, Mike. End of the year, go to a Toyota dealer and count the
leftovers.

Then go to a Ford, GM, or Chrysler dealer and do the same.

Shoot...in 2005 when I was working for a Toyota/Licoln-Mercury/Chrysler
dealer, we had PLENTY of 2004 Chryslers, a few 2004 Mercurys (we even had
a 2001 Grand Marquis!) a *bunch* of Lincoln LS's (which I thought was a
nice car...) and a handful of Jeeps.

Do I need to tell you how many Toyotas were left over?

Pay careful attention to the next Tundra commercial you hear...

"...ASSEMBLED in America..."
