The Cars.com American-Made Index By Kelsey Mays, Cars.com What Are the Top American-Made Cars? Cars.com's American-Made Index rates vehicles built and bought in the U.S. Factors include sales, where the car's parts come from and whether the car is assembled in the U.S. We disqualify models with a domestic parts content rating below 75 percent, models built exclusively outside the U.S. or models soon to be discontinued without a U.S.-built successor.

another reason is american autos are not in the picture is in my opinion
american auto makers/designers make ugly cars.
if they would start designing a "hot" car is will sell like hot cakes for alot of americans if it looks good they really dont care about how it runs
second thing they care about is price.
but then agian toyotas maybe hondas are more american made that american autos.....
theres a is a big difference between american made and american assembled.
how many parts going into autos are acutally made here these days?
outsourcing-unions-taxes-regualtions+fat union pensions= the death of american jobs/industry.
and we all know whose idea those were.
feel free to disagree

The image of American cars in Britain, and I'm guessing throughout Europe is pretty terrible, and we tend to see them as Gas guzzling beasts that have terrible handling and awful awful build quality,
I'm struggling to remember the last time I saw a U.S car on the streets of London apart from the occasional prowler and a few Neons.
Apart from the time a few years ago when a very very sexy middle aged women passed by me on the road in a 1960's bright red Ford GTO and nearly made me crash into a lamp post because I was looking at her so hard.
