Worst Chevy Suburban I ever owned was assembled south of the border. The ones assembled in Arlington, TX held up much better in my estimation.

Hope Fiat brings the production home....oops, on second thought that won't work, home is in Italy, lol!


be careful there TT, We all know the hardest work your truck does is haul your fat be nice around and maybe your garbage can out to the curb.

The manufacturer that I work for (not auto) is made in the US (well most of them, as we opened a China plant a few years ago) has been all metric fasteners for over 15 years. Kinda aggravating as a few components we use is still standard.

You sure she didn't just say you were "real special" followed by a "bless your little heart"?

My Shovelhead didn't have any metric bolts on it.
