    They are really throwing the Focus under the bus here.

    Yeah, and I'm guessing the price tag at the dealer won't be lowered to reflect the savings either.

    US plants re-tooled to produce more trucks. That's just what we need.

    We need small cars produced in the US too. Tariffs will fix this.

    I've always been a Ford fan but if it was produced in China I'm not a buyer.
    If I want to buy a Japanese car I would just buy toyota.

    Mine was made in Mexico. Same plant as my Escort was. Didn't take me long to trade it. Bleh.

    Since all cars built anywhere now use components from other sources in other countries, I dont think the difference will be that easy to tell.

    The fewer Chinese parts, the better IMO.
