Domestic vs Import Debates, Please read before posting.

Please don't try and make an "import" vs "domestic" destinction.

To begine with it only has any meaning to 7.5% of the worlds population who live in the USA, and this is a International forum, and the small meaning it does have is totaly irrational and borderline automotive racisim. Most of the cars described as being "imports" Honda, Toyotas, Nissans etc are infact all made in the USA, and all 3 have complete model ranges designed and built only in the USA for the US Market, while the cars usualy refered to as "domestics" are often built on platforms designed in Europe or Japan, and many are built in Mexico or Brazil.

Car manufactoring and Design is a truely global opertation, and it is meaningless to make distinctions based on National boundries.

Your lovely new Ford may have been syled in Europe, have an engine enginered in Japan, and use suspension tested and tuned in America.
Its body shell could be assembled from parts stamped out in Japan, the engine could have come from South America, the suspension subframe from New Zealand and the interior could have come from the USA and Europe.

Any threads based around an import vs domestic destinction will be closed from now on.
