Whenever the time may be for you to purchase or lease a new
vehicle, keep this information in mind.
You might want to give more consideration to a car manufactured by an
American-owned and / or American based company.

Apart from Hyundai and Volkswagen, the foreign car
companies contributed nothing at all to the citizens of the
United States.

It's OK for these companies to take money out of this
country, but it is apparently not acceptable to return some in a time of crisis. I believe we should not forget things like this.

Say thank you in a way that gets their attention..

PS. Maybe its tacky from me to be posting my e-mails, but I believe in this cause - BUY AMERICAN MADE! Coming from an immigrant should mean a lot
