Not quite.

Many Hondas and Toyotas are indeed assembled in the US, but not all of them, and much of the engineering/design is done back in Japan, as are many of the parts that are used to assemble those cars. BMW and Mercedes have one or 2 plants here in the US and those I believe only make their SUV models. Kia (which is owned by Hyundia) has one (?) plant in the US with most of their models coming from Korea.

Of course on the flip side, the Focus and Fusion are made in Mexico and many Chryslers are made in Canada (as well as other models).

When it comes down to it, the US jobs created by the foreign carmakers are MUCH appreciated, still though, the Detroit automakers employ many times more people in the US than any one else.

Concerning this commercial, someone should drive a Ford F250 into that douche's showroom.
