Is a Car Assembled in U.S. Made in America?

Made in America. Used to be very simple to figure this out when it came to cars. Today? Not some much. As a matter of fact, with the globalization of the car business - it's almost impossible to figure it out. Aol Autos answers the question: Is Your Car Made in America?

When it comes to the Corvette, assembled in Bowling Green, Kentucky, it's a fairly easy matter to identify the parts not made in the U.S.

GM vehicles assembled in Canada include Chevrolet's Camaro, Equinox and Impala and the GMC Terrain, while vehicles built in Mexico include Cadillac's SRX and Escalade EXT, Chevrolet's Aveo, HHR, Silverado, and GMC's Sierra. GM vehicles built in the U.S. include Buick's LaCrosse, Lucerne and Enclave, Cadillac's CTS, DTS and STS-V, Chevrolet's Cruze,Corvette, Malibu and Tahoe, and GMC's Yukon.

According to figures from IHS Global Insight, of the GM vehicles assembled domestically, several Corvette engines are built in Canada, with several transmission variants originating in Mexico.

Not unsurprisingly, in the poll on the article, 70% consider a car that is assembled from parts made outside the United States not to be "American."

The Aol Autos article concludes that drivers who want to buy a car that is made in America need to look at percentage of parts that make up the car and factor in that the Big 3 automakers still are headquartered in the U.S.
