A friend of mine who reads and comments on the site, pointed to a website where the UAW lists recomended vehicles to buy if you want to support American Union workers. And there were a couple of surprises.
I shouldn't have been surprised that the new Fusion, built in Mexico, doesn't appear on the list.
But imagine my surprise, that the Mazda6 is built in a US plant by UAW workers.
The one that really kicked my ass, and I'm going to have to appologize to several people I know, was the Toyota Tacoma!!!!!!!!!!
So I guess that if I buy a new 4 door sedan, it's going to be a Mazda 6. It satisfies on some level most of my buying requirements. It's built in the US, by Union Employees and by a FoMoCo partner/brand. Not only that it's a good quality car, that has nice styling, great quality and doesn't break the bank. So maybe I'll have to hang a blue oval on it myself? I can just hear my brother singing that anoying Zoom Zoom song the next time we're talking on the phone.
