And Ford sells Mexican and Canadian made vehicles in the US. How is that different?

Toyota manufactures in the US. Are they American? Or do you just apply doubled standards where it suits you?

I have enough sense to see you have a double standard. And yes, Ford has taken their fair share of government funds over the years. Like EVERY automaker.

No comment on Ford importing German and Australian cars in the past. Apparently your only argument is Chinese made. That alone doesn't nullify GMs status as an American automaker.

Ford took government loans, not a bailout.   There is a difference.  Ford paid every dollar back to the taxpayers.

Its a shame you dont know the difference between going BANKRUPT and getting loans.the point i am making is to get tax money from people and send a nice portion of it to china,then turn around and sell a chinese made car over here under the name buick is a dam shame to me.IF FORD went down that road and did the same thing it would be a dam shame as well.gm is still an american company but to me they are just a Garbage Motor Company.did you watch that film,is gm becoming china motors?

I never referenced the bailout event specifically.

So I ask you if Ford has NEVER received financial assistance of any kind from any level of government during the last few decades.

The answer is of course they have. Just like EVERY automaker. That's not anti-Ford or Pro-Toyota or whatever. It is just a truth about how the car building business runs in the US.
