You don’t need to buy American cars to pay for them.

50% of the population   believe that the most effective personal transport is to be bought from  non domestic manufacturers. Ignoring that most of the large builders have US plants it’s still a pride thing. Hey we’re kind of a democracy so let’s take that as a WIN for not wanting US cars. Doesn’t matter you’re going to pay for them anyway. Not only does Detroit make  of the highest depreciating vehicles but it’s been  tossing them out with massive incentives which further  lower their value.

Doesn’t matter. You’re still going to be paying for them.

We’re giving money to GREAT AMERICAN COMPANIES like  GM to make products that the USA doesn’t use for the most part. Thanks EPA  .

General Motors is investing $445 million to build an engine plant and upgrade an existing vehicle assembly plant in Thailand. The new 14,492 m2 (156,000 ft2)
facility will be GM’s first diesel engine plant in Southeast Asia and
will provide four-cylinder diesel engines for use by Chevrolet in
Thailand and other global markets and brands.

and  for the love of Chrysler what are you doing back , again.    Ford has some interesting cars  overseas,  GM has some neat small diesel powered cars in other markets  it’s the USA that won’t let them fill the roads with small efficient  cars , or even let them try.  Maybe it’s time to  let them drive off into the sunset so we can free people up to work on things that we actually want to buy.  If there’s not a MASSIVE luxury tax imposed on foreign cars in the near future I will be quite surprised because it’s the only thing that will get people back to the home market.

Detroit desperately needs the help. Many analysts expect all three domestic car companies to face a life-threatening crisis if the U.S. car market, down about 20 percent so far this year, stays in the doldrums. GM and Ford could start to run out of cash by the second half of 2009, a precursor to declaring bankruptcy. Chrysler’s finances are now private, but its sales are down even more than at Ford and GM, and it may be starting to bleed its corporate parent, Cerberus.
