What countries are supplying your Mustangs' parts?

While working on your cars, take a look and see if you can determine the country where the part was made.
Let's see how many different international sources Ford is using to build the 2011 Mustangs.

I was surprised to see my alloy rims were made in China.

Yeppers, wouldn't be surprised to find good portions of the car made in China or other rising Industrial countries. It is unfortunate to be forced to buy stuff from other countries.

I would say more, but what's the point.

If every part was made by unionized workers here in the U.S., your 2011 Mustang would cost approximately $85,000. Maybe even more.

There's Pros and Cons of every situation.

If it weren't for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable.

That's why we should get rid of unions....in my opinion.

Don't care about Made-in-China wheels. What's NOT so great is that the new Getgrag MT82 6-speed is also Chinese made (4-way joint venture). Some Range Rovers use the MT82, but theirs is made in the UK. Oh, well - hey, the "old" (2010) Tremec was made in Mexico if I read correctly. Globalization at work. If Mr. Geitner gets his way and China revalues their currency that new MT82 might not be so cheap...

Doesn't that imply that their products are worth more than we are currently paying for them? And therefore we should be happy to buy them?
