Not a single US brand. :(


Manufacturers are so global nowadays, the location of the HQ is losing its importance. Where are these cars built? Most are built here.

I hear this "Buy American" all the time so what do I buy? A Ford (You may insert your fave brand here if my mentioning Ford hurts your beeehind) built in Mexico? From an American company that shelters most of its profits overseas?

Sorry I should have been a little clearer on that with more emphasis. I did say American 'brands', not American 'made'. That was intentional.

I have two from that top 20 list. The Leaf is from the plant in Smyrna. The Highlander is from the plant in Princeton, IN. I've toured the plant in Georgetown, KY where they make Camrys and Avalons. Yes, American made can be excellent products. But the brand controlling the engineering decisions both in car design and in plant operations does make a difference.
