Default Honda and toyotas effect on our economy?

Ok.. So, just an idea. Let me know what you think, but.. Honda and toyotas are ruining our economy! everyone is buying Honda's and toyotas, which in case you didn't know, they're japanese cars. So what country do you think is getting all the money for these sales? How many brand new Honda Civics, Accords, Toyota Camry's, Tundras, Tacomas, and Corollas do you see every day when driving around town? Not to mention Nissan's, Mitsubishi's, Porsche's, BMW's, Mercedes, and many others.. I admit Honda's and Toyotas are good cars. But people have been buying nothing but Honda's and Toyotas for YEARS. Its been Going on for a while and i think it could be a big part of why our economy is so bad. So, if you agree, Next time your about to buy a new car, think about it. Buy American products. Do research before buying more expensive items and try to buy american. For cars, try GMC, Ford, or Chrysler. Even with smaller items, Groceries, Clothes, light bulbs Idk.. just do research. Do your best to buy american and help fix our economy.. Let me know what you think..















I'll admit some american cars arnt so great, but theres a chevy that gets 40MPG and its probably cheaper than a honda. And BTW, it doesnt get a whole lot more gay than a honda civic, no offence to any civic owners.

You should do some research before you post such statements online. The majority of Toyota vehicles sold in the united state are built in the united states. The only Toyotas that are solely built in Japan and sold here are the Prius and the Scion line of vehicles. Do some of the parts come from Japan? Yes, of course. All of the so called 'american cars' get there parts from various countries as well.































Please read this article. I think it will help change your perspective just a bit.

Is is true that japanese cars manufactures are getting all the money. But I belive america is a place where the best of best win. I do support my country and want it the be the best. But american car manufactures are not helping by making cheap crappy cars and selling them expensive. I will admit I have owned american and foreign cars. My mitsubishi never broke down to this day while my fords door handels keep braking and problems happen every now and then. Its not our fault other countries make better products. I support the best products. Not the products everybody likes. I stand behind my mitsubishi. If any of you out there support your product go ahead. I don't support the fact that american car companies are copying forign car designs.

Honda and Toyota does not ruining our economy. The actually create more jobs in the US by assembly their cars in the US. American car manufacturers manufacture their cars in foreign countries and ship it back into the US and sell it as an American made car. The best thing to do is the government creating new laws. One, anybody that sells their products in the US must be manufactured in the US or get a 35% to 50% tariff just like China. Either the company invests with a partner and must contain about 50% US parts to avoid tariff. China does it and dump their crappy stuff in the US and they don't allow any US products be sold in China. We, the US, should do the same. China cannot survive. Second, stop letting Chinese and foreign companies from using US technologies in auto or in high tech stuff because we in the US spend a lot of money in research. All those companies are good in copying stuff. They are innovative people. We are more creative and innovative. Third, education, we have the crappy education system in the world. We should reform our system by changing the curiculums such as more advance classes in early ages. Test the kids' performance every year before allowing them to move up a grade. With standardized test, that will get the parents attention and help their kids in school works after school if the kids don't know. Also, teachers must visit the parents at home and talk about the progress and how to improve in school of each student. Most important thing is offer longer school year. Longer school year will offer teachers more time in discussing/explaining the subject more thoroughly. For example, other countries stuff algrabra in 8th grade and calculus in 11th or 12th grade, but in the US we study it onlyi in college if major in something that is related to engineering. We are far behind with education. With charter schools, in With good education, we can go out any part of the world and be competive. We , citizens and government, should take the responsible and take some action.
