Do you Buy American if it means paying a higher price?

My car was assembled in America with a high US content and that was a factor for me.

I've never purchased a car. The car I have now is the one my parents got for me at 18 when I graduated high school. It was a shiny new-to-me Toyota Prius. Pretty sure it was made in Japan, but idk.
@sarabee1995 Most Toyota's sold in this country since the 1990s are assembled in the USA

@BiasForAction Oh! So maybe I have an American made car? That's good news. Thx. 🙂

@BackyardShaman Thanks. I've enjoyed it. I'm thinking of selling it now though. 🤷🏻‍♀️

It's not possible to buy a new Australian made car - they are all imported. But I do try to buy Australian products where I can, and in particular Australian food products. Imported food is an absolute last resort. Oh I've never bought a new car and wouldn't have any idea what that's like although one of the execs at my work has just bought themselves a Tesla model S outright for about A$175 k. Oucharoonies!

I want another rice rocket that gets 40+ mpg. Fuck American vehicles

My car was assembled in the US, but the driving factor (no pun intended) in my getting it was the value and reliability of the brand. And I’ll be trading it in for a newer model of the same car when the time comes.

When I can! When I can’t I try to stick to at least allied countries of origin

Not necessarily. It must be a good product, too, otherwise all bets are off.

Depends on what it is.
