Toyota and BMW. The fit, form and function on both are excellent. IMO it’s not as much about where they were built but more about quality control and how the people that built them were trained. IIRC Toyota and BMW are non union companies.

My first car was a Chevy Vega and I have never bought a GM vehicle since.

When my car was being repaired after an accident, I drove an American minivan and was appalled that they had learned nothing from their foreign competitors. The car was cramped and just poorly designed. I could not believe it. If I was an American designer, I would examine the competition, learn from their design and do it better.

“...more about quality control and how the people that built them were trained.”

Exactly on point from my experience, too. 1 Toyota Corolla and 1 Nissan XTerra at my house, along with one Ford Expedition for towing the RV trailer.
