It doesn't have a thing to do with quality. Do you know how you can tell ??? THEY ALL DEPRECIATE ! Because it's a freaking piece of metal.
Example of American made...
I have been a fleet manager for many years, and I can tell you of our fleet of American made Ford vans, (4.9 engine, in line 6 cyc)..that had over 330,000 miles each. We used them to travel throughout the southeast. Of course we serviced them regularly. When I sold 7 of them, they still brought a good price. They were built in America !!!!!
So go right ahead and drive your Kia Sephia, while your fellow American veteran looks for a job. Oh, if you have never served, don't let your conscience bother you.
check the foreign parts content of those Ford vans Don..
