Hopefully they aren't the only industry that brings work back home to the USA. I've been seeing story after story talking about the wages overseas going up and the cost to transport the goods made there back here are causing some to rethink why they moved in the first place. With luck, many start to come back and fuel the growth here at home.

Can they afford the health insurance cost if they start hiring more people.

Charger,
Engines made in Mexico and Bodies in Canada.....
Wouldn't it have been great for those factories to have been built in Detroit
Especially since they were built with taxpayer dollars to save the industry....

Grrr
I noted the transmission casting company is opening a plant closer to the Mexican border to supply auto production there....
Wonder if they'll bus in illegals? Oh wait... Transient citizens.... That's it....
Grrr

Who know what some of these companies are going to do. It just doesn't make sense to give them money and then allow them to use the money for plants outside our country. What about that makes sense to anyone on here?

All I gotta say is as long as they make Fords (wherever they make 'em), and folks here drive 'em, we'll have jobs. SOMEBUDDY'S gotta keep all those Fords running! LOL

It's assembly line jobs that are on the rise at ford, all the GM and dodge owners keep trading in Their Junkers for Fords..the union GM mechanics are tired of working overtime for GM stock shares....

I like Toyota. You guys can have fun fighting over GM vice Ford all you want. Really, if you can find out what day your vehicle was made would help. Friday built cars/trucks are problems waiting to happen, because he union worker was thinking about the weekend all day Friday. (hahahaha)

My last Toyota was a good example of that, too, though .... it had a vibration at highway speed that I could never find, especially under load. I used it to pull a trailer with a crane and welder all over the state back then, and the "buzz" finally got to me. I sold it to my boss, who pulled a double horse trailer with it (4 cyl, 4 speed) - she finally took it to a dealership who was able to find the problem: NO motor mount bolts. When I bnought it new, I'd had it undercoated .... the holes were full of undercoating. It had come from the factory with ONLY two transmission bolts holding the motor in, and they held for 50K miles pulling a trailer that weighed twice what the truck did, and another ten or so pulling one that was only slightly lighter. You might fault the assembly line, but I'd never fault Toyota after that.
