After the auto unions supported bammy, would you ever consider buying a car from the Big Three again?
no except maybe ford. they didnt take the money.
but still not likely
But mainly because they make crappy cars.
Only Ford and then only something not made by union labor in the US unless I had no choice.
I am an American made Toyota 4WD SUV girl!
I have no f**ks to give any union worker who draws a pension after the way they have demonized my 401k retirement investment savings as “filthy” wealth.
And that goes double for government workers including politicians who draw their money from taxpayers.
This assumes I’ll ever get enough savings to buy a car. However, I’ll NEVER buy an “American” car. The quality isn’t there, and I won’t support crony capitalism.
I say this with a heavy heart because my dad was GM’s #1 fan for most of his life. Even he recently got a Toyota.
No. I’m boycotting anything Obumer. We will not buy anything but necessities during his ‘rule’.
Me too, acs.
2006 Toyota Four Runner; navy blue.;
I will never buy a car from The Big Three. I have a Toyota and it rules.
Never.....ever...ever!!! Listen up Oklahoma and Texas...we r truck country....stop supporting the uaw!!
I’ll say yes, but most critical buy a car made in America.
Do not support imports.
I won't buy foreign either.
Ford only. By way of explanation, I’m a union man and have voted Republican in every election since 1980. I can’t imagine myself ever voting Democratic. I’ve driven Fords for the last twenty years with nary a complaint. I drove a 1993 Explorer for ten years. I now drive a 2003 Ford Escape and plan to keep it going until 2018.
My husband is one of the 20,000 Delphi salaried retirees who had their pension taken away by 0bama. We just bought a Ford, after owning GM products for 40 years. We will never give another dime to GM. I request you to do the same.
If I do, it will be a Ford. Chrysler is now a foreign nameplate, and I never want to see the inside of another GM dealership.
Not only big three, won’t buy from Honda either(made in Ohio) It’s either Camry (Kentucky) Nissan (TN, MS) Hyundai (Al). Boycotting the bambi states
All Ive ever owned is a Chevy pickup, The one I drive now is a 2006.
All Ive every purchased for my business, is a Chevy pickup.
2006, was my last purchase. Never Again.
My Son is real happy with his Toyota Tundra
Absolutely not. Even Ford employs UAW members. Let them sell their crap to Bulgaria.
I would buy from Ford.
Are there any motor companies who employ American workers but who didn’t get any scratch from the American taxpayer?
I owned old, used GM cars years ago. When I was 40, my first new car was a Volkswagen Golf. I’m 65 now, and have only had two new cars since then, and they’ve both been Nissans. I’m hoping I die before I have to buy another car.
Guess which one's made in America?
The Honda Odyssey, made in Alabama.
The GMC Envoy is made in Canada.
Far as I'm concerned, I'll not buy another UAW product - ever again. Period. Up to the Honda Odyssey, all my cars have been American "branded" (GMC, Ford, and one or two Dodge's.)
From this point forward, if it's not built by Honda or Toyota in a non-UAW factory in this country, I'll buy something from over-seas. To HELL with the Unions.
F the UAW, even FORD.
I will NEVER buy another union made in America vehicle. NEVER!!!
Yes I’ll buy American always...
Both Honda and Toyota build certain models in this country in NON-UAW factories. The Honda Odyssey and Accord are built in the U.S. (Not sure about the Civic.)
The Toyota Corolla and Camry are built in the U.S. also in NON-UAW factories. Can't speak to Toyota's other models.
I owned a ford once that was made in Canada. I wouldn’t buy from others but I wouldn’t before cause of the bambi payoff my buddies and screw those who aren’t deal.Why didn’t Mitt talk about that? geez.
Sorry, but they are assembled here, but made in Japan. And the profits go back to Japan.
Just to be clear.
It is unlikely that I will ever buy a new car again.
Too expensive to start with, too quickly devalued.
The only one I would consider at all is Ford. My wife and I have been noodling on how to determine which businesses are freedom loving and getting a directory together for those of us who feel betrayed by the libs. For one, the UAW on their web site shows all the companies and products which use UAW labor. We need to buy from the competition instead. For instance - not only the big 3 automakers are UAW, but Mitsubishi is as well. Any other automaker should be fine.
But we’re just brainstorming on how, both on the national and local level, we could do something similar to Angie’s List, but oriented toward those who are freedom-loving. Any ideas welcome...
No, but I don`t buy “Amerikan” cars anyway. IMO, they`re crap.
They are Socialist-Communists and they produce inferior goods and vote for POSs like Obama.
I prefer Toyota and Honda.
Brilliant. So you will pay the enemy within to hurt your family and your neighbor's family and all the rest of us, at the expense of a neutral ally waiting patiently to help the country out of its ditch. Brilliant.
When was the last time an auto union supported a Republican
presidential candidate? BTW are the clerks and meat cutters at
your market of choice represented by unions. I am not trying to
be provocative or insulting. I’m just pointing out the bigger
Okay, maybe I need more education on this. What cars are made in U.S. by NON-union employees???
< gasping >
Wait'll your electric bill is a grand a month .. soon
They didn't vote for asshole either and voted against the union petitions on the ballot.
GMC Envoys were assembled in Moraine, Ohio and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Never in Canada that I can find.
I’m told that the union bailout money and the billions the UAW got to take over the pension plan is almost gone. They’ll need another bailout soon
my next car/truck will likely be a Toyota. More made in the USA than the big 3.
GM and Chrysler are dead to me. I own 3 of them all pre-bail outs and bought dirt cheap (300-500 bucks).
Post bail out will be import or Ford if the deal is good.
Eff the unions. I AVOID anything with the union label.
Might want to watch it with buying Suzuki. I saw here where they’re closing all US operations.
The stock is up 30% in the last 3 months, do you recommend shorting it?
