Re: Maybe selling the mustang

no in my case I had an older eclipse, as things go some models are bad and some are good so just hunt down reviews for you specific year and see what all complaints are out there.

Mitsubishis have a really bad rap based on fact. Steer clear.

They might have been assembled here in the States, but they are not all American. They have been assembled by some part that was brought in too.

You would think Harleys are all American too, but they have wiring harnesses made by the Japanese and I broke my heart.....

Re: Maybe selling the mustang

yea about all you get from purchasing an american brand car is giving the american company money... as most of the car usually is produced elsewhere and assembled here

I diagree. In someway I feel that it still supports our economy in a greater way then supporting a non-taxed/tariffed foreign sweatshop product.

Re: Maybe selling the mustang

i think you posted this on the wrong forum... what makes you think any of us Mustang people would jump for joy and encourage you to get rid of your mustang? especially to get a POS evo?

I agree that buying cars where the company is owned in America is a good idea, just that they are not fully made in America part wise~

Re: Maybe selling the mustang

I did not buy my mustang because it was made in America. I bought it cuz I wanted to own an legacy, a part of history, a name that will forever fall into place when you mention muscle cars.

I stepped into a world that I nevver knew. Everyone here knows that feeling of the sound of the exhaust, rumble of the body, and the power that is contained under your foot. Then You unleash the power with the raise of your foot, shifting through the gears, with each shift you can think about the engineering that went into bbuilding this dream machine. The man hours, drawing boards, tests, and then the accepptance of the people. We are why people like Ford, keep building cars like the mustang.

Whether or not its an american car, our economy is still getting the same thing out of it. Your buying your a car that goes to American dealerships.

I am not saying go for it. You need to follow your own path. I just know that when you go to purchase a car or truck now a days. None of it is all America, and that is where we stand. we rely so much and foreign trade and companies to help our economy. It is the end to our own demise.

Re: Maybe selling the mustang

I would say go test drive one. I had a 2nd generation turbo Eclipse for a year while I was tearing down and painting my 68' Mustang and I loved it, actually ended up putting and Evo turbo into it and a long list of other upgrades. They are fun little cars and the Evo's launch off the line like you wouldn't believe. Don't get me wrong, I love my Mustangs but would I trade my 04' V6 Stang for an Evo...? Probably... although a more likely scenario would be trading my V6 for a GT

Re: Maybe selling the mustang

my girl had one, EVO stock is better crafstmanship than stock mustang honestly, but any 8cyl mustang 5 speed with just a few mods beats it, mustang with lots of mods like mine eats it alive!! the problem you run into with thos are that the engins are max'd out in proformance when you purchus them, they squeeze like 400 hp from a little 2.2 liter 4 cyl ..which is cool ...but its allready maxed out mustang easly fights back with mods and easly surpasses it at that, plus mustangs just look sexyer and more grown up on the road AMERICAN MUSCLE!!!!!!!!!

Re: Maybe selling the mustang

Anyone who honestly believes American made cars are superior to all others are retarded... Germany, Italy, Japan... all produce amazing vehicles performance, gas mileage, reliability and durability wise. Not to mention what has already been said, 90% of the parts in your "American" car are from foreign countries, just because they are assembled here doesn't mean **** concerning the quality of the vehicle. I'm willing to bet the robots that do most of the actual assembly are designed, built, and programed in Japan. Now if you're all "America, **** yeah, everything else sucks!" (said in redneck accent) because it helps the American economy, that's a whole different subject, but don't pretend your American made... I mean assembled car is better, that's just being ignorant.

Re: Maybe selling the mustang

Built in Japan because those American companies you so adamantly support ship the work to be done overseas where it's cheaper, (I wonder how many American jobs they could create if they brought those jobs over here...?) but if they leave the final assembly to be done here they can slap American made on it and garner a huge chunk of sales because there are tons of people who will buy their car solely based on the fact that it says made in the U.S.A. on it. I'll support American and be loyal to my country, but giving my loyalty to a corporation who's bottom line is always gonna be money? Nah, I'm good.

Re: Maybe selling the mustang

I used to work at a place in Brundidge, AL called Carter Bros. Mfg. We put stickers all over that **** that said "Made In USA", yet we always had to halt production because of parts that were on backorder from the suppliers in China, India, and other Asian countries, whose parts to make OUR parts were on backorder from THEIR suppliers. And who knows where that **** is coming from? Bottom line, nothing is COMPLETELY made where it claims it's made.
