My 2001 Chevrolet Impala regularly averages 33 mpg. This mileage is computed by how many miles are traveled fill-up to fill-up. Separating city miles from highway miles results in a false average. Claims from auto manufacturers that their product will get 28 mpg fall on these deaf ears.
Since 1952, there have been nine Chevrolets in this family. While the current Impala may have been manufactured, for the most part, in Canada, the profit from the sale of that vehicle stayed with an American company. The profits from Japanese cars go home to Japan, even if the auto is constructed in the United States.
Only one foreign-made car, a Volkswagen, has made it to this garage. The cost of repairs on that Volkswagen far outstripped the cost of repairs for Chevrolets.
Autos carrying the name of American brands have much the same quality as those carrying foreign brands. The difference is American brands do something for the American economy that foreign brands do not. Why not support American-made?
