I don't know if it's better to be built in America anymore. Even if it is actually built here, a lot of times, they can be built just as badly or worse than if it was built in Mexico or somewhere else.

And I believe you can thank NAFTA for the bizarre group of images you've posted.

And how ironic that Toyota just idled 5 of 7 plants it has in the USofA due to the accelorator pedal/floor matt issue...
