    Level Field Institute claims

    <<<<<But some automakers matter more than others.
    Even with recent layoffs and plant closings, Ford, GM and Chrysler contribute far more to our economy than foreign automakers do. More of the cars they sell here are made here. Three times as many of their workers are based here. And their vehicles contain twice as much U.S. parts. On a jobs per car basis, buying a Ford, GM or Chrysler supports twice as many jobs as buying a foreign automakers’ vehicle.>>>>

    So here they claim, right on their main web page, that Ford, GM and Chrysler vehicles contain "twice as much US parts."


    This was probably true at one time, but I do not think there is any current data that would support this claim today. The domestics are going more global, while the transplants are finding more local sources for their parts.
