Re: Limits of Patriotism

I opened the floodgates with this one. Yet the consensus is that my

mechanic is right: Buy a Honda. It will almost certainly be made in the

USA — they have five factories here, including one in Alabama, of which

fond memories from last year’s trip still glow.

I had not realised until reading all these e-mails that there is a clear

distinction in people’s minds between American cars (made in Detroit) and

American cars (made elsewhere in the USA, quite possibly by someone like

Honda). Opinion leans strongly against Detroit. No offense up there, I’m

just telling you what I’m hearing.
