Is your Honda Accord built in America? Yes!

Is your Ford Fusion built in America? Nope!!

Buying an American made and American assembled car is one of the easiest and best ways to get America back to work. If an extra $312 spent on American made products by every working American creates 1,000,000 jobs, just imagine what a monthly car payment for an American made car can do!

Our unique calculator considers where your car was assembled, where the components were built, and that the car was sold in the USA. Here is a list of the top 20 bestselling vehicles in America and the corresponding “made in America” total.
