Agreed, no loyalty anymore! The good news that we have two GM plants plus a parts warehouse. The good news that I pulled into my car wash, while I was waiting noticed the two in front where GM and the next 7 out of 8 were GM also.
But we have seen a huge increase over the last twenty years of the foreign makes.
Loyalty to a brand is not using your noggin. GM has outsourced a lot of production to China along with Mexico and points further south. I feel no loyalty to an outfit that's taking my dollars out of the country.
The cold hard truth is that Honda, Toyota, and Nissan are just as American made as GM, Chrysler, and Ferd at this point. There's a high probability that there's more American content in those "foreign" brands than the supposedly domestic brands now. The "foreign" brands do lack the UAW content that the big three had in the rust belt... If UAW loyalty is what you're looking for look elsewhere.
