Ford is going through some difficult times right now. They are shutting down plants and laying off thousands of workers. Ford management and workers seem to want to blame American consumers for their economic troubles. They seem to think we are somehow "Un-American" because we prefer foreign-made cars over American-made cars. The truth is that they mostly have themselves to blame, but politicians and unions have played a part in this too. The auto makers are mostly to blame because they have allowed themselves to get further and further behind foreign car manufacturers in quality. The government has sheltered them from competition with tariffs on foreign cars. The jobs bank that was agreed upon by union and Ford negotiators ultimately hurt both Ford and its workers.
Americans, just like anyone else in the world, want to get the most out of their money. All other things being equal, I think most Americans would choose an American-made car, but all other things are definitely not equal. Foreign car companies make much higher quality cars.
