you're an idiot tweety. You want to have this converstion about net profit margin? Lets talk about 5 cents on the dollar after corprate income tax. Even one of your own has explained the breakdown.
<<...What's the profit margin on the cars they make here? Ten percent? That means 90 cents of every dollar they get from cars they make here, stays here. As an American citizen, I'll take that kind of return every day...>
Let me know if you have any more fossils you want to dig up. You and your boys just keep making me the big $$$$$
You may want to check your facts. 90 plus percent of the 16 billion dollars of NET profit went back to Japanese hands and banks. This is one of the biggest CAUSES of MY beloved U.S.A.
The U.S.A is bleeding heavily from the trade deficit caused by Toyota............
Sell/Short TM, Buy Ford, an American Owned Company..patriotism
Simple, they cost twice as much because their 3 times as good. You get what you pay for. With a little bargaining you can buy a new fully loaded ford fusion for a little under 8k but your going to get a 8k car! So long as you know that, as you point out then that's ok.
It is nice to see that you agree that 99 percent of the 30 billions of dollars that Toyota rob from Americans annually go to Japanese Banks...........
Keep responding on my posts as I have commanded you. Obedience is a virtue.
#1, So far no profits have been going to Detroit, why? Detroit hasn't had fiscal year profits in a long LONG time.
#2 The myth that "all profits go to Japan" is so ludicrous it is almost silly to even have to respond to. But here goes anyway...
Just out of curiousity...
What money does Toyota use to build plants here in the US?
What money does Toyota use to pay a dividend to ADR holders?
What money does Toyota use for charitable donations to all sorts of causes here in the US?
What money does Toyota use for advertising?
What money does Toyota use for paying its workers bonuses?
What money does Toyota use for its R&D facilities here in the US?
Etc Etc Etc
Answer: Money made from profits.
Gee, I guess all profits DON'T go back to Japan.
Some twits just can't help but lying straight to your face...
'08 Fusion V6 SE (auto) 221 hp MPG = 17 / 25
True Market Value = $22,287
'09 Camry V6 LE (auto) 268 hp MPG = 19 / 28
True Market Value = $23,451
Go figure, the twits lie again.
Hey, if Ford wants to do a 50% off sale and is STILL losing money, it's their own dang fault.
Sure, I will teach and educate you. In my metropolitan area Ford Fusions 4 cylinders with 34 MPG-36 MPG sell for 11899 (eleven thousand eight hundred ninety nine) dollars fully loaded on weekends; this includes gobs of rebates from Ford Motor Company, like all F-150 get discounted every weekend ten thousand dollars.
A similarly loaded camry costs 27155 (twenty seven thousand one hundred fifty five) dollars.
Here is your price link: http://www.edmunds.com/new/2009/toyota/camry/100975561/optionsresults.html?action=2
A similarly fully loaded 4 cylinder camry, gets only 24 MPG combined; 20 MPG CITY and 28 MPG HIGHWAY.

I've had Fords, GM products, Toyotas, Hondas, Nissons, Mazdas and I drive a lot. It's the cost of going down the road a mile that matters. Total cost, fuel, insurance, tires, repairs,maintenance, resale, etc. When all is said and done I've found the foreign stuff to be the better value.
Smokinomics at the US companies haven't helped. When a company gives an employee the equivalent cost of 5 new cars and a pension to go away it's hard on the bottom line. Unions, when they are good they are good, when they are bad they are very bad.
The Fords from 30 years ago are different from the current breed of Fords, the highest ranked cars by Consumer Report based on reliability.......You probably will sing a different tune when the Toyotas will be tripple the cost of a Ford.........
Maybe most AMERICANS just don't like you tools.
Ever think of that tweety? I would sooner WALK to where I needed to than support your little communist regime.
HaHaHaHa, you must be working for the U.A.W. The U.A.W is on the top five enemy list for FORD. FORD and I do not like U.A.W. You should seek help with a Neurologist. Yours has been altered by your boyfriend Scuboloso; there is besides a few wires missing also rotting inside your braincells. Hurry, or else you will end up like some of the Senators in Congres-Just for your own sake.........Just some words of advice..........
