Couldn't get a look at the driver, but saw the sticker as the truck was going up the off ramp.

Maybe you should make a post with all of the manufacturers and the % content US parts plus the factory they are assembled in location and make it a sticky!

Just curious, why do they lump Canada in a as part of the domestic content. Last time i checked, Canada was just as much a foreign country as say Mexico

Not that I do not appreciate "PD giving me a pass", when I purchased my truck, I did explain the situation in this forum and of course everyone had there opinions. I wonder though how many people really look at what they own; electronics, clothing, etc... Short of the Amish, no one is exempt from purchasing foreign items. But go ahead and hypocrytically narrow the blame on people who purchase "foriegn made" vehicles. I am sure those of us who do, only do it to intentionally harpoon southeast Michigan. Probably it is the only reason Michigan is in the shape it's in.

Rather than "kudos" for promoting this boating website, I will be questioned as to my loyalty to the region.

Nah, we were just poking fun Sailor - be confident of your decision and have many happy miles with your truck!

My BIL will only buy Nissan, after he logged 340,000 trouble free low maintenance miles on his 1st Nissan (87 Nissan Pulsar), he figured he'd use my Dads Chrysler discount and bought a 1995 Intrepid ES in 1994. After 2 transmissions, a valve job, several A/C compressors, the timing belt finally skipped a tooth at 90,000 miles and with a few car payments left, he paid it off and went back to Nissan (mind you - he still had the Pulsar the whole time he had the Intrepid and still drove that occasionally too). He now has a 2002 Nissan XTerra approaching 200,000 miles.

Am I promoting anything other than the big 3? As far as Im concerned its ones own decision and if you feel guilty about what you buy then you knew the repercussions beforehand. You only get to live once - why let somebody dictate what you should drive, ya know?

Sailor, pay no attention to the carrying on of others about what you drive.
Trust me I've heard the same thing, more than once. I drive what I like and I don't care what anybody else thinks or says about it.
I chose it because
i like it, I paid for it, I pay for gas, license plates, and my insurance. Since nobody else pays for it, I don't care what they think of what I choose to drive
