It is no secret for car buyers that right now, some of the best vehicles are not made by American companies. In fact, Honda and Toyota, and perhaps even Hyundai makes some of the best vehicles that the average consumer can buy. They last much longer than their American counterparts, they hold their value well, and are very enjoyable to drive. It is no small wonder that Toyota is now the biggest car company in the world.
It’s also no secret that car companies in America are really struggling. And this could mean the loss of many millions of jobs if something isn’t done about it. So I pose this question to you, would you buy American automobiles to save American jobs?
Personally, I don’t think I would. That sounds harsh, but let me explain. Many foreign vehicles are actually made America. Did you know that? Down in the south, far from Detroit companies such as Toyota, build trucks and cars using American workers and American plants. So, is buying a foreign car actually destroying American jobs? Yes and no.
American jobs will be lost more because of poor management more so than from poor worker quality. Of course, part of the blame does fall on the American auto workers union’s for being greedy all of these years, constantly wanting to get paid more even if they are producing less. The whole industry is very shortsighted and is now reaping the rewards of their shortsightedness.
If you really want to help the American car companies, buy the best car that fits your needs the best and don’t worry about what company is. If you buy a high-quality vehicle that shows the other companies that they are going to have to produce high-quality vehicle to get your business. That is a lesson that every company needs to learn to succeed. If you really want to help the car companies and save American jobs in the long run, you should buy the best vehicle in your budget.
