The argument, stupid as it is, has to do with the company.. not where the vehicle is built. Nissan is a Japanese based company so the mindset is that the money goes to Japan. The big 3, regardless of final assembly place, are American companies thus their money stays here. I don't give a shyt. I don't like what the big 3 build so I spend my money where I find it will go farther and last longer. So if the hillbillies out west want to keep buying inferior union built products JUST to support their American companies who just spit out crap to keep the lazys employed, let them. They're apparently not smart enough to "get it".
