I have owned a few Toyotas, a Opel and a Datsun. But probably 80-90% of my vehicles have been American. How about you?

I have driven domestic "American" vehicles almost exclusively for about 30 years. I'm over it. The car market has become so global there are American brands but not really many American cars anymore. My Lincoln it turns out was made in Mexico and my Jeep in Canada. Meanwhile Camry's, Accords, KIA's, Hyundai's and VW's are being built inside the USA just to name a few.

I still have an aversion to Japanese for a host of reasons but my wife has had a KIA 6 years now and I'll admit while it's not fancy it's a better built vehicle than my domestics have been.

The next vehicle I buy for me is likely to be Korean or a VeeDub.

5 Chrysler products

4 from Ford

3 Jeeps

and a Subaru

Next and hopefully last will be a Toyota 4Runner.

Guess that makes me 85.7% American vehicles. But with the reliability difference between today's Jeeps vs 4Runner....

I used to buy only Gm and Ford from the 80's on. I bought a 2013 elantra, a 2017 elantra for my son, and now a 2017 mazda cx-5. My next truck i will look at the toyota tundra, nissan titan, and i will investigate a work class 2500/f-250 chevy/ford.

90% American, one Asian (Samurai, for a little while) but I think most future non-domestic purchases will trend Euro.

I said the same thing when I bought a new 1987 Ranger 2.3 and it was the biggest pile I ever owned. Not only a bad truck but bad service from Ford. My wife has a 2010 Mustang GT and I have a 2000 Mustang GT and have changed my opinion about Ford. That being said, I still prefer Chrysler and GM products overall.
I try to buy American made domestics when feasible.

Buick
Chevrolet
GMC

In that order.

The GMC and Pontiac were awful. The Buick and Chevrolet were great. Nissans have been excellent.
