I think you need to have a reality check.............this day and age the only way for any country to have a strong economy is for all to have a strong economy. We are joined at the hip with Asia..........All American cars and truck at have Asian parts

No this is a list from Cars.com that the US government uses to calculate if a car is American made or not. many fords are now considered imports. Many Toyota are considered Domestic. this list a direct copy

I meant like saturns were made by gm, assembled in america but most if not all parts were from germany, but from gm owned companies. From that list, a saturn ion would be about 75-90% Germany, but still from an american company, therefore the list would not be accurate.

Well not so much as accurate, but severely misleading in making you think your american car was made by german interests.

IDK, My ranger has never had a serious issue in the 10 years I've owned it (And I've treated it like shit). My old '88 Bronco never had many issues either. And that thing was sort of a beast (Man I miss that thing...)
