Daimler Chrysler was a German company that was considered domestic ? You can't say Honda is a Japanese company. You can say they started as a Japanese company and they produce jobs here when the so called domestic companies ship them elsewhere. Sad but true

Thanks, Aaron! And the other 3,999 of us here thank you too =D.

@Michael I'm not a huge Honda fan but I'm glad you have a job and they're employing a fellow American :)

That's what I meant. And good to hear

Granted, we don't build Accord's here, but we do export the products that we do make!

Well, I'm proud to say that production (design, assembly, casting, injection mold, and other jobs) IS what Honda does in the United States. I work at a Honda factory (their Alabama one, specifically) and I'm glad these things are selling! xD

Not production, just assembly... At least for my Dodge Ram. Not that I agree with it being right.

Some people are just so stupid. And you guys do realize that GM and I'm assuming the others export the production to places like Mexico

Plus it cost the billionaire more money to produce here than in foreign asiatic countries.

Also I would like to point out the fact that it doesn't much matter if my money ends up with bob lutz or Akio Toyoda. Either way it goes to over paid billionaires. Give the blue collars of America jobs at Honda or GM i don't care

Not only do they employee thousands of North Americans directly at their plants but also create even more jobs with new local suppliers and more business for existing ones. Its a win-win for all involved.

Yea they still provide thousand and thousand of jobs for people here!

ha if ur going to attempt to make a point..at least sound somewhat intelligent..also millions and millions of dollars are contributed to our economy by them building here..I encourage more of it

Honda is a Japanese company.

Doesn't make it any better. The money still goes back overseas to a Chinese auto company.
Description: It's a practice that has since been adopted by many of its competitors, but Honda started it all thirty years ago. It exported its first US-made vehicles back overseas five years later. Now 25 ye...

Why do they send them so far? Wouldn't it be cheaper/make more sense to send it from Japan? Or is there export laws that make it cheaper?

Very Good
