Call it patriotic or buying American to support our economy. Either way, there are certain cities that are more apt to sell cars that are made by the Big Three in Detroit.
In general, the entire Midwestern section of the country is more apt to buy from the Big Three. Detroit and St. Louis are the cities with the largest numbers of domestic car buyers and 67% of the buyers there stay true blue. Cleveland, Ohio came in third at 59 percent.
The study conducted by The Detroit News did not include any information as to whether those buyers were aware that most of the cars made by the Big Three have foreign components. In some cases, they are at least 30% foreign made, while the majority of Hondas and Toyotas sold in the U.S. contain at least 75% American made components according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Makes you stop to think, doesn’t it?
